Fun Monday - Counters
Ari is our hostess this week, peeking out from Beyond Her Slab and into our kitchens.
Topic: It's time for show and tell. What does your kitchen counter look like right now? (And no fair cleaning just for the picture!) Do you have any favorite or unusual items on your counter?
I didn't actually clean for this picture. I try to keep it pretty neat and clean already. See that countertop? It's WHITE. And the backsplash? It's WHITE. And the floor? Oh. No, you can't see that, but guess what? It's WHITE. All of which means that if you don't keep it clean, it really looks awful! When I get around to redoing my kitchen, guess what's the first thing to go?
WHITE COUNTERTOPS, WHITE BACKSPLASH, WHITE FLOOR.
So... what do we have here? My white microwave (which I actually don't mind), my block of knives, which I bought myself just last month, a spagetti jar full of chopsticks (the husband's preferred eating utensils), a white (geez, what is it with me and white?) jar with whisks and wooden spoons in it. They're sitting on top of a glass-like cutting board. The only truly interesting thing in this picture is the spoon rest, which was given to me by my Puerto Rican aunt probably 25-30 years ago. She sent it to me from Puerto Rico and it's the only thing she's ever sent me from there. She died of breast cancer over ten years ago. I use the spoon rest everyday though, and think of her.
There are more countertops - but I didn't take pictures of them. There's an old stove with a small toaster oven and cutting boards next to it, and there's the counter with the stainless steel sink in it. I thought I took a picture of that, but it wasn't there when I downloaded the pictures. Very odd. There's a window over the sink that looks out to the back yard and my fish Boo lives there. I know I took that picture.... Perhaps I'll update this later after I go take another picture.
