Practice in patience

One small detail.  Not having a hose from a big (outdoor) faucet, I will have to literally carry 29 (maybe more like 25) gallons of water to fill the tank.  That’s a lot of hauling water from the kitchen sink and running it to the tank.  I wish I’d saved all my 2.5 liter bottles of vinegar now.  Maybe this will be an opportunity for me to practice mindfulness if I do nothing but focus on the task at hand.  Needless to say, my tank is currently full of nothing but air right now.  Air and gravel.
