Just being honest and nonjudgmental about my resistance to taking the next step was enough to get me unstuck! Yesterday, I ordered a hose reel for $74.95 on eBay. (You can find it for as much as $160.00 so I’m grateful for this good deal.) It’s a big improvement over the plastic one I’ve been using–more storage space, garden green, and cushy wheels that will bounce right over the cracks in the sidewalk. At least those are my high hopes. E. stopped by to tell me that he has located the perfect hose reel at Joe’s Garden. “Too late!” I told him. However, I am curious and will check it out. Perhaps it will be the next incarnation after the knit line grows out of this one.
