Now, like going out to lunch after a morning of housework, I can 'clean up pretty good', and if I know I'm having visitors, I do pretty well with kitchen clean-up, too.
But on those days when I live in my kitchen...
In those pictures seen on other posts? I move everything just out of camera shot and clean the immediate area. I mean, immediate. Not one half-inch further. And I only do that so all the clutter doesn't confuse the subject. I am in the midst of creating and taking the photos is for you, not me. The time they take cramps my kitchen-rhythm. So, I do as little as I can as fast as I can to 'git 'er done!' Then, I can get back to what I'm really doing...cooking on a limited time schedule.When I'm finished, I take a break if I have a little time to manage it. THEN I tackle the cleaning.
But I know there are some of you who won't believe me, so I'm going to do you a favor...
I'm posting the evidence.
Now, you have one less person with which to compare your cleaning and organizational skills. Hopefully, this brings even more freedom and fun to your visits here. As for me, I find confession good for the soul. Now, I have less fear of falling off someone's invisible pedestal.
|See? This is a close up of part of my counter area...Note the papers and books...mostly recipes, poking out beside the grain mill. I was starting the grain soaking for the bread that's in the oven right now, by the way...|
Stuff everywhere as I hurry along...even forgot to close one of the cupboards...
