JSP Visual Week In Review | 09.28.13
And so we rumble to the inevitable closure of another month.
Summer seems a long way away already. I’ve begun seeing Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations up. And yes, even some Christmas ones here and there. Ugh.
In the small neighborhood of Allentown, New Jersey, that we live in, the big topic this week was numerous sightings of a bear in the local woods. Reports are it’s a yearling but that hasn’t been confirmed. We’re having a neighborhood block party/get together this evening…hope we don’t need to use bear bags for the food!
The other country living experience we’re (hopefully) almost through with is the bad well water we’ve had for over a month now. A new, deeper, well was dug this week, and it got hooked up to our pipes. Unfortunately, it looks like our old filter tanks may be skunked (the level is iron coming out of the ground is LESS than it is coming out of our pipes – not good) but otherwise it’s clean and bacteria free. We’re hoping a good scrubbing of the tanks fixes all this and we can start to bathe the kids at home again.
Oh, and do laundry.
And drink water out of the tap….
Yep, it’s country living for us….
