Here we go

I spend HOURS in front of my kitchen fact, I bought a kitchen timer to calculate the exact number of hours I spend there. I'll start the timer tomorrow..if I remember. Anyway, I do a lot of thinking at my kitchen sink and since I don't journal or scrapbook, I thought this would be a great way for me to write down what I'm thinking about at the sink.

The sink is usually where my day starts. Filling the coffee or tea pot, cleaning the dishes that didn't get done the night before, (no, I'm not a flylady follower), looking out the window (that so desperately needs to be replaced) to see what the weather is like. As a stay at home mom of four awesome kids, I'm at the sink all day it seems. Three meals a day, snacks, bathing babies...that's a lot of time at the sink. When Steve comes home from work at night I am most likely at the sink, drying my hands with a dishtowel to greet him. The sink is also where my day ends it seems, wiping down the counters before bed.

Looking back at over 16 years of marriage I've counted 9 sinks that I've stood at. Many in different states and one in a different country. I'm hoping to find pictures of all my past sinks but until then I'll post one of the sink I live at now. It's not my dream sink by any means, but it does the job for now.

  8. Hi there Pam,
    I stumbled upon your blog when I googled for "view from the kitchen table". I'm about to post some pictures from the "view from the kitchen table" at a friends house and was looking to see if that title exists in any other format.
    I really love your blog. Thank you and am really looking forward to hearing more about your kitchen sink musings and adventures.
    All the best
