Farmboy built our little farmette nearly 8 years ago, pretty much all by himself.
We had the help of one awesome friend, who spent months going in to his job at Amway around 6am, just so he could get out a bit early and come over and help.
We spent days, weeks, yea, even months looking for just the right cupboards, flooring, counters and appliances for our kitchen.
We picked out a nice, quiet Sears dishwasher for bocu bucks.
After all, we wanted it to last for many, many years!
Hard well water does funny things to appliance motors.
Like corrodes them!
So after less than 3 years our beautiful dishwasher bit the proverbial dust.
And to replace it would be silly.
Just more hard water running through it's veins would only bring the same fate as it's predecessor.
So, I am makin do!
My dishwasher now holds my LeCreuset pots, which are too heavy for me to hoist up into the cupboards.
And it holds my potatoes.
And I am back to hand washing the dishes.
Actually, I kind of like hand washing.
Gives me time to meditate on the Word.
Pray for my kids.
Think about what the rest of my day looks like.
All good things.
But what is especially nice is when Farmboy just takes over and I get to go get of my feet!
Just one of the perks of makin' do!
