It Isn't Knit and It Isn't Quite an "FO", But...
Yes, I am strangely excited to be the proud owner of a new outhouse. But we live in the country and we have lots of land... And more importantly, we are on a well and septic. That means that if the power goes out for an extended period of time, we don't have water, which means that you can't use the flush toilet. During the aftermath of Hurrican Irene, when Mr. Me was without power for more than 48 hours, he determined that an outhouse would be a DEFINITE plus. No - we didn't get much rain or anything here, but the winds and such did knock out the power for quite some time and basically created havoc.
Where were the boys and I during this adventure? Well, we were returning from my parents 50th anniversary celebration in Ontario with Princess Knitsalot and had not so brilliantly, and quite unwittingly, driven straight into the disaster area that was Rutland County, Vermont... But that is another story.
And big thanks and a shout out to Ariel, who has also shown me very kindly, that she is still out there and reading when I post. Thanks ladies, you're GREAT!
