I’m happy to say that the water leak is fixed now. They finished up at about noon yesterday. Oh my, what a relief that was!
I was able to take a regular shower last night instead of a fast one in cold water.
It’s always humbling when you realize what you take for granted in life. Such as regular things like hot water running through the pipes in your home.
The Apartment Management:
The manager did offer to take four days off my rent for the inconvenience. She also came by yesterday to bring packages that had gone to the wrong place and to check the kitchen.
She had said she’d have someone come in and clean the kitchen once everything was fixed. But I declined that offer. There just isn’t anything to clean up.
The plumbers took care to clean up any mess, which I appreciated. The floor probably needs to be mopped, but that’s the least of my worries.
It was such a relief just to get everyone out of here and have the quiet. Their saws and drills and whatever they used to tear through the concrete were finally quieted.
Labor Day Movie:
Yesterday afternoon I closed the curtains and watched a movie on Amazon Prime I had already seen years ago. It was “Labor Day” with Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. It is from 2013, and I found it to be a truly beautiful story.
I reviewed the book back in 2013 that was turned into a movie here.
The story takes place in 1987 when an escaped convict (Brolin) forces his way into a woman’s (Winslet) home.
Over that holiday weekend, she and her 13-year-old son fast become smitten with the gentle peach pie-cooking convict accused of murder. He begins to fix up her old car and home that needed a man’s touch and had not had one in some time.
There is no violence in the movie. Adele Wheeler and Frank Chambers fall in love over the Labor Day weekend. I highly recommend watching it.
The storyline sounds highly improbable, but you’d just have to watch the movie to understand how it plays out. I could watch it all over again and probably will.
Ivy slept behind my chair while I watched the movie. She was probably about as tuckered out as I was.
