Yeah, plumbing. Freezing weather brings frozen pipes.
We have a small cabin we used to lease out as a shop. This past year we decided not to rent it so we could start another one of our ideas in there. We have had the water off for the last few months, because we aren’t ready to open it for business. With all the valves open, to give the pressure somewhere to go if it does freeze, their was one that froze anyway. It was the one going to the commode tank. I Forgot to lower the float. Anyway, It froze.
While working on the pipes, it made me think of my writing – how many pieces do I have that have been rejected and I keep submitting them to different markets. Maybe I need to take another look at them and check for leaks. The last time I looked at them they looked fine, but so did my little cabin. Maybe there is something I have overlooked. The words are not etched in stone, or frozen in time. I can change them.
For the final weeks of this year I am going to look over some of my forgotten pieces and do some plumbing. Patch up all the holes and warm them back up.
That’s what I’m thinking. How ’bout you?
