A Very Eggcentric Kitchen
Welcome to my kitchen.
It is truly egg-centric. This summer, we've been getting 3 dozen eggs a day. And my husband has been selling them for $1/dozen!
This room isn't static. We're always cooking, making huge messes. This is where we sort mail, stash the groceries, and gather at parties.
Sometimes I get into a minimalist state of mind and sweep through the room, emptying the counters. The granite is assertive, and it doesn't put up with messy people.
And then I'll cook something complicated and make a humongous mess, and the whole cycle repeats.
I will confess to being something of a neat freak--way deep in my heart. This is not to say that I'm not capable of dirtying up the joint. No, I can turn the place upside-down in a flash. That said, when my mother visits, she puts her medicine bag (a crinkly Wal-Mart bag) on the counter and defies me to move it. She likes to keep a watering glass beside the sink.She told one of my friends, "I LOVE to throw a monkey wrench into Miss Neat Freak."
On the other hand, if the kitchen is wrecked, she makes tsking sounds and rolls up her sleeves, muttering about sloth.lol
Mother is coming here tomorrow. :-)
