Or more importantly, the pipe in the wall the toilet is against, which also happens to be the same wall the refrigerator is against.
The toilet in the half-bath has some draining problems. Or would that be running problems? I keep hearing it gurgle, but see no puddles. And when you sit on the toilet, the vibrating/groaning sometimes gets louder (Hubby equates the noise to the Jaws theme song).
So why didn’t I suspect the plumbing?
Because the noise didn’t start that way. It started when I was no where near the half-bath (and I was in the house alone). Plus, I had purposely USED that toilet before the refrigerator repairman came to see if it would make the noise… AND IT DIDN’T! Which is typical, right? Nothing makes the clunking noises when you want them to, do they? So please forgive me for not suspecting the plumbing straight away.
I’m glad it’s not the refrigerator. Not so glad we might have plumbing problems.
**Fingers crossed it’s nothing serious!**
Saturday was a beautiful (albeit foggy), no-rush kind of day. I was able to do what I wanted when I wanted. Didn’t have to BE anywhere at anytime. It was nice.
I actually got the edging done. I’ve got before and after pictures!
|This is the BEFORE shot on the short side. Our yard ends at the green box.|
|See how nice and straight it is now?|
|I did the longer side first and didn't think about taking a before shot.|
Wow! What a workout. Even took my time by edging a line, then cleaning it up (I think the cleaning-up part took more energy--I filled four bags!). But honestly, if I had tried edging before my exercise routine, I’m not so sure I would have finished. At least, not in one day.
I like seeing these physical results in that way, since I can’t seem to see them ON me.
FYI – I apparently inspired my neighbor to also edge his lawn. Bwahahahaha!
After edging (and the much-needed shower), I did a little shopping. Six years ago Hubby and I bought some posters from the Metropolitan Museum of Art (yes, the one in NYC), but never got them framed (they’ve been stored in the closet all this time). I took them to Michael’s as they were having a 70% off sale. When I get the framed posters back, I’ll take pictures so you can see which ones we bought.
I love framed posters. Have lots of them in the house. I have no idea where the new posters will go, but I’m sure we’ll find some place. And if I remember, I’ll take pictures of the other posters we have.
So… Have you ever had your pipes moan, groan, and vibrate? What was the cause?
