This was my day yesterday. On top of everything else, I have developed a nice chest cold. Well, of course I did! I carried my new little tea pot around everywhere with ginger, honey and lemon. The sweetest child in the world (my daughter) made me tomato soup and I was a sloth. I treated myself to a very pretty cloth from Avalanche Looms and it came in the mail yesterday. It was described in her Etsy shop as a solstice cloth for bathing, but yesterday it was a lovely tea towel for my lunch. So beautiful and cheered me up nicely between coughing and nose blowing.
Finally the nicest well dude ever showed up around lunch time yesterday and gave us a new pump for our well. What a luxury to lift the faucet and have water pour out, instead of going to the porch and getting a jug of water to boil. We are spoiled, people! On the news last night they did another propaganda feature on how the oil business is booming in Colorado and fracking is the greatest. Yeah right! Just wait until none of us have clean drinking water and see how great fracking is then! Do you know how much water is wasted in this horrid injection process? Here is a quick fact: The water used in the fracking process could serve up to 300,000 homes in Colorado for ONE YEAR. In one week we alone went through 40 one gallon jugs of drinking water and 7 five gallon buckets for flushing the toilet, and we were being conservative. Imagine how much water waste there is in fracking. We DO NOT have an endless supply of water on this planet, yet we are going to inject it in the ground with toxic chemicals. For what? So we can avoid solar and wind energy research? and be the richest oil nation in the world. We all better wake up! What makes me so sick about this is there are people on this planet that don't even have water to drink yet we are just mindlessly injecting millions of gallons of precious water into the ground with toxic chemicals. I just want to shake the brains out of the people that are doing this!!!!!!!
OK, sorry for the little rant. Another day of tea and slothery. I have decided that for once I will let my body get better before I plunge it into activity. Gerry and Wesley are off to have breakfast together, and I am here with my tea and orange pound cake. Yum!
peace and water for all :)
