We got very lucky with our house. It’s old (built 1892), but has great bones and the people who lived here before us were meticulous with maintenance and upkeep. Everything is in reasonably good shape and we can hopefully keep it that way!
But that’s not to say there aren’t issues. One of the big issues is some plumbing work that needs to be done in the basement. The last time plumbing work was done, the plumber didn’t use the correct connections between pipes and now a few connections are slowly corroding. Could I pay a plumber to come in a fix it? Sure.
But, I’m cocky so I’m going to try to fix it myself even though I’ve never done any sort of plumbing work in my life. Fitting copper joints? Soldering connections? What could go wrong?!
Wish me luck….
It’s peach season so…
Low Sugar Spiced Peach Jam – Personally, I like my jam pretty sweet but since peaches are so ripe and perfect right now you can easily cut back on the sugar and use some spice to make it nice. (@ Food In Jars)

Hope everyone has a good weekend. If you need me, I’ll be hopefully turning the water back on.
