Friday From My Quarantined Kitchen

23 May

“Show me a clean perfectly tidy kitchen, and I’ll show you a boring empty home.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis

**************************

My kitchen is not only where I cook, but it’s where I dance, and sing, and bake and dream. And, because my small kitchen is open and visible to the family room’s TV, occasionally I wash dishes during commercials. I call it commercial cleaning.

I’m sure that most people know that the kitchen is the heart of the home, so if the kitchen is too tidy all the time, there’s something wrong there.

I was admiring all my memorabilia around my kitchen today. I proudly display my Mother’s Day gifts from the grandchildren.

Belle drew me a beautiful picture with sparkle paint. I told her that I saw a grandma holding a baby and she said, “NO! It’s a dragon!” Oops, my mistake. (Do you see the mother and child? Maybe you see the dragon.)

My fridge has a wonderful display of family photos and special memories.

My windows are flanked and counters filled with artwork and gifts from friends and family that must be showcased and displayed. These things make me smile every day.

There are dishes in the sink, dirty pots and pans still on the stove, oops, and an empty wine glass, but how blessed am I!

Happy Quarantined Black Russian Friday, my friends.

PS. The store was out of my chocolate almond milk. Had to make my own.

Cheers!
