A pop-up add becomes a pop-up subtraction

  1. We celebrated by Zoom the tenth year of my sister-in-law being free from her breast cancer.
  2. It took the three of us (mostly the other two) but we got the Sunbubble dismantled and the plastic cut away. I do have hopes of putting bird netting of some kind around it in replacement, at least enough to keep the squirrels out of–I haven’t decided which yet, a fruit tree or the coming tomato patch.
  3. I have a question: can anyone tell me what this thing is coming out of the tile quilt star over the stove at this house? I’m just not grokking it. That custom design work, interrupted and covered over. For–what?

It’s a pot filler faucet. So you don’t have to carry a heavy pot full of water across from the sink. But you’re going to have to carry the hot pot back to the sink to drain the pasta.

One of those silly trendy foodie status symbols that makes no sense to me.

What she said.

But then I wonder. Don’t you have to drag the full pot of water over to the sink when you’re done? What did you save?

Congrats to your sister-in-law!

What a wonderful thing to be able to celebrate. Hurrah! And many more years to come I hope.
Pot filler faucets are cool in theory. But, as so often happens, practical use is a whole ‘nother thing. Need a special pot with a drain – but drain to where?

They nailed it. You don’t even need my wisecrack on this one.
