Clean Kitchen Strategy

 We're getting another mini-heatwave this week.  It's crazy, but I'm getting new growth on bell peppers and all these tomatoes ~ still! ~ I bet I'm getting a kilo of tomatoes a day.  Plus, cucumbers!  And new growth on the cucumbers!  And so many eggplants, and squash.  It's been kind of a wild growing season...but I'm starting to feel like I say that every year!

It's so nice to have a clean kitchen!  It's inspiring, and I can't tell you how happy I am to have such a modest amount of (manageable!) produce on the counter.  Let's just turn around and...
 ...argh!  Well, I guess I could do the dishes.  And take out the garbage.  And clean off the counters.  Put away the food.  Sweep.  Or...wait, you know what? 
There!  That's better!  Let's just turn around.
 This way, we'll have plenty of time to take in the Giants game (hummmmm baby!!!) and we can also  enjoy this tidy and lovely stack of hot-off-the-presses embroidery patches.  Easy does it.


  1. ISN'T THAT THE TRUTH! There are days I just feel overwhelmed. I was in Florida for a few days this past week and you would not believe the mess I came home to in the kitchen. YIKES!

    Have a wonderful day! La

  2. Wow, Mimi. I love what your Dad (and you guys) did with your kitchen. It is so modern now and you have SO MUCH MORE space! I love it! That is the first time I have seen the remodel - other than the pics around the stove :)

  3. Beautiful kitchen. I love it.
