Yes, life is so boring I’m going to show some cleaning results. Yay for you, right?

Lloyd had a homecoming game last Friday night so I was alone (yay!) in the house for hours and hours with nothing on the agenda but to nap and watch stuff on Hulu. Well, I forgot to nap, and Hulu can be watched from the kitchen, so I cleaned up a bit in there.

For as little as I cook, I can’t figure out how the area by the stove becomes so disgusting. The few times I wipe down the counter, there are always bits of salt, pepper and sugar in this area. (And splatters of tomato sauce, but – whatever.) I was thinking that maybe I should go buy something to corral this stuff so I would just have one thing to wipe out, or maybe prototype something – but wait! I bought some Fiestaware at a fundraiser long ago! Lo and behold:

I photoshopped out the worst of the tomato sauce splatters.

Not crazy about the blue, but Fiestaware beggers can't be Fiestaware choosers.

Woo-hoo! Granules, consider yourselves – contained.

    Your counter looks marvelous!! And I like the blue Fiesta dish…

    It looks great!!

    I have a very similar dish (not Fiesta, not blue, it’s green) that I have 3 little plants in on my window sill.
