No, you did not read that wrong. Why blog about dishes? Is my life that boring now? No, it's not, hahaha....but I do dishes at least twice, and some days up to 4 times a day. One of the changes in my life is that I no longer have a dishwasher. Now, I am not going to pretend that is a Beauty for Ashes trade....it is NOT! However, I decided from the beginning that I would make the dish washing experience as beautiful as possible. I actually don't mind it a bit. My first requirement is that I spend a little extra money for the products that make washing dishes a more positive experience. I LOVE Mrs. Meyer products, and the aromatherapy that takes place IS beautiful.
My new kitchen has the sink positioned in the corner with windows on either side. It creates a spectacular view, and I add the things I like to look at in that back corner. My future husband is wonderful about making sure I have flowers so those are almost always there....
These tulips are about done, but they are still beautiful. And look at that view out the window!!!
I have pretty dish soap and hand soap dispensers on either side of the sink. John not only makes sure I have flowers....he likes to make sure I get a regular giggle. He writes something on the hand soap's chalkboard every once in a while. This is what was there yesterday.
I love using the towels my friends have made me over the years.
When he is home, John dries while I wash. It is much nicer to work together, but I have to say, I also enjoy my time looking out that window in silence. Either way, I am blessed.
Once they are done and put away, it is a good feeling.
Do not think I am kidding myself. I know this is not a beautiful thing, BUT, there is no reason to not make it as beautiful as possible, and somehow, I think I lucked out with the view, and the corner sink. It sure makes a mundane daily chore much more enjoyable.
