Saturday was one of those days when we didn't have much planned, it was too chilly to do outside things, and everyone had a project to work on...so I did something I haven't done in a very long time. I cleaned and oiled the wood cabinets in my kitchen! I also mopped the floor! My Mother was always diligent about keeping her woodwork oiled and her kitchen cabinets are 41 years old and look fantastic! I was pretty proud of myself as the cabinets and granite were shining. We get quite a bit of traffic through here and with the Hubs and two adult children working out of our home five days a week, it's hard to keep clean.
This isn't the whole kitchen but a portion of what I did. I was reminded of one of my favorite poems. I used to have this poem on a wooden heart in my bathroom way back in 1989, the year my first child was born. I always loved it and still do. And I still think it's true! I tell myself even now that having people in our home, and using the kitchen, is more important than a spotless kitchen!
