I got up this morning around 0600 and had plans to go fishing. However, the place is still a mess, things are disorganized and lying on the ground. You put something down, you turn around and it is gone. Frustrating at times… So yeah, after 20 minutes of looking for my gear I decided not to go fishing and to tidy up the place instead. Besides, it is a bit hard going at the moment without a car, and my neighbor gave me some home made sausages yesterday; don’t need any fish for eating today.
Mohammed the cat hurt himself, he’s got a cut in his left paw. It looks deep and somewhat swollen, got no idea how he might have done that. Tried cleaning and bandaging it for 30 minutes, but to no avail. Poor guy, caught me a rat yesterday, I hope the wound fixes itself.
I installed my sink the other day – hooked it up to some left over outlet piping in the A-Frame – and connected another hose to the gravity fed water from the stream. That was a top feeling, as it meant that I did not have to go outside to get water. However, I simply cannot locate any of the outlet pipe(s), I just can’t figure out where the water goes. This is a problem, it turns out that it goes somehow underneath the A-Frame and if you use too much water (like around 20 l) it rises up through cracks in the cement foundation and bubbles up next to the fire place. So yeah, work in progress. I’m sitting next to the fire, finished for today; cleaned up inside properly, got my food in shelves and my dishes out, started paving the front porch with rocks and am looking forward to a good feed of home-made sausages, fried rice and potatoes. Gotta cook it first though…
Here are some impressions in form of pictures.
