Our Home Renovation: No Shower!

We have no shower! Here I am washing my hair in the kitchen sink:

58_July6_Day261AWe are certainly glad that we decided on the extra deep kitchen sink and the pull down hose. However, Jimmy seems to prefer the utility sink downstairs in the basement.

We have both mastered the art of ‘sponge-bathing’ and sharing a half-bath with the two tile layers. Of course, we most graciously have accepted the offers from our neighbors to use their ‘facilities’.

They have packed the walls with insulation and papered it with this fabulous purple paper. Please note my old tub, which has become the storage receptacle for the job.

I am currently reading a novel describing the daily lives of Londoners during the blitz of 1940. This is nothing.
