It's been a while since I scribbled. But I'm glad to be back just in time for the anniversary! Congrats, Laini and and Meg. This blog is a wonderful addition to the writing community!
kitchen is often a mess. Dishes in the sink, spilled stuff on the
stove, mud on the floor from my dog's paws. But there is beauty behind
the mess, and I've been trying to focus on that. My husband cooks a lot
(and is not a good "clean as you go" chef; he usually leaves a trail of
dirty dishes, counters, etc. behind him). I try to look at the
splatteredstovetop as a symbol of the meals we've shared, and of his
nurturing nature. I try not to focus on the fact that it also
symbolizes our being too busy after dinner to give the kitchen a good
(I'm also trying to devote 2 hours on the weekend
to cleaning so at least everything is neat for a short time. Right now
we just clean when we find the time, which isn't nearly often enough.)
Those are my random thoughts on kitchens. Click here for more.
