When there is so much water

That your rainwater tank is overflowing and you have to connect the hose and let some of it run down the gutter it is very important to make the most of the situation.  So Daniel and I did indeed make the most of the over supply of water both from the sky and the tank on Saturday and sailed paper boats down the gutters in our street.  He literally immersed himself in the experience, crawling along in the water in the gutter and floated each little boat until it was well, pulp.  Then we made some more and kept going.  We did lots of walking up and down in the rain, had lots of scientific discussions and generally had a great time. I hadn’t realised that waterproofing, wind speed, water volume and the cleanliness of our neighbours’ gutters would make it into the conversation but they did.

    I just came upon a Wonderball and didn’t know exactly what it was so googled and found you. I nearly wept when I read about you and as you were knitting thought of a newborn baby and life itself. That was so beautiful. I have just turned a young 70 and so think about life differently. This will be a perfect gift for my knit group for next year and for many of my friends that are knitters. You may think at times you are not doing a good job at anything but believe me, it all does turn out

    The best to you and your family in the New Year.
