The first day off of my mid-week weekend and the weather is cool and overcast. We'll be lucky if the high hits 70 (F) today.
Usually, I begin my weekends playing the part of the Laundry King. Not today. Hey, I haven't even sorted the whites from the colors, and the towels are still hanging on the rack. Am I changing up my routine? Nah. I have a plumber (expensive) scheduled for this morning. You see, I have a crack in my pipe. Now, I know that sounds bad, and it will be if the pipe breaks, but that's not likely to happen. There are still a few, small sections of caste iron pipe still remaining in the house. This section, which is about 5 feet long, is attached to the PVC drainage piping put in decades ago. Water from the bathroom, kitchen, and washer drains through this pipe. Today the pipe is getting replaced, and I'm not kidding myself, it will come with a hefty price.
My peaches are the size of walnuts already:
