So, I don't have cool pics from Ireland to post, nor any cute baby pictures, but I'm not going to let little things like that get me down. (And, if I'm willing to waste a whole post on an avocado tree, then let's be honest, I know you aren't expecting much.)
This week's Monday post it about the little things in life , like not having your kitchen flooded when the old faucet turns out to have corroded away to the point that a stuff breeze could knock it over. Hooray fir easily-accessed shutoff valves.
Actually, what's interesting about this is not the end result, but the surprising challenge faced when trying to pick out a new faucet when working with a time limit. First of all, the many options parameters we didn't want, and those we did - no two-tap hot/cold design here, need the single lever to be operated safely when hands are gross, etc... anyway, in the end Home Depot had just 3-4 options that were acceptable, not crappy, not $1000, and in the right finish.
