Plumbing and lights.

Yesterday I walked the dogs by moonlight.  This evening I tried to do the same, but forgot moon would be later.  Had to walk dogs by starlight -  which wasn't as dark as you'd have thought.   Az hared about like a loon.  I'm pretty sure he couldn't see any more than I could, but presumably he could smell rabbits. 

Today a washer went , and water came through the ceiling into the dining room and all over a sofa, which was a tad alarming.  Philmophlegm resourcefully found a plumber, so at least the problem is sorted, but the ceiling is still full of water.  We are not sure which of the ceiling lights have cables that  go through that room, so am typing this by fire and candlelight, to the sound of dripping noises as the ceiling slowly drains.

It seems to have stopped dripping.

My awesome DIY skills allowed me to a) use the internet to find a plumber who actually came when he said he would and b) drill several holes in the dining room ceiling.

Not so awesome as to enable you to fix the washer yourself though? ;-D

It seems to have pretty much dried out now, and no great harm done, fortunately.

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
