Sunday, a day after celebrating my girls 2nd birthday party, I felt tired and empty. We went to the forest to charge our batteries and at the end of the day, I was ready to welcome Monday and start “working” on my blog posts about Helmī birthday and wild mushrooms. Mother Nature is beautiful!
Monday came with no electricity witch in our household means no water (no shower, no WC), no heat (it was only 11 degree Celsius outside), no music (I don’t know why we don’t have a simple radio to turn on!). All girls stayed at home and I felt sick. Still tired and Monday morning was one of those mornings when you NEED coffee! I was worried about girls they had running nouse… no heat, no warm drinks or food to feel better…
I couldn’t work on my blog posts and the phone’s battery was low. I posted a blog post that was almost finished using my phone.
Heavy rainstorm outside. All dark and gloomy, no sun no fun I would say. I dress up Linna and we both went outside to check the flood. It was raining all night and our driveway was covered in water. We walked all the way to the country road about 300 meters and it was mostly covered in water streams. We both had lovely 20 minutes under umbrellas and raincoats! After those minutes Linna jumped in the big puddle and felt down… all covered with cold water and mud. We run inside and decide to move to caravan!
We have caravan!!!! Not just caravan – the caravan that is self-sufficient! It means heat. It means gas to cook something and heat water for tea or coffee! Oh, well… Janis checked the battery and … shoot… there weren’t sunny days, so the battery isn’t full, we decided to stay inside the house and use caravan kitchen to cook the meals.
At 2PM electricity supply was restored. Good.
At the end, I felt tired and empty… on Monday too!
P.S. The Orange warning, which has been the highest level of warning in the strongest cast of the rain in Latvia, has been announced only 4 times since 2012, indicating that such a rain is not common in our latitudes.
