My kitchen, right now

It's all about kitchens in Inspire Me Thursday this time around. My contribution is a razor-edge-of-time snapshot of my kitchen's current but no so unusual state (messy).

What you see are primarily the yet unwashed containers of last night's and today's foods and drinks and some utentils. The pièce de résistance, however, is my grandma's flowered coffee pot in the background.

And yes, it was takeout last night. My daughter came over, and we ooled* Chinese while watching a rental DVD - Because I said so with Diane Keaton as the high-strung and meddling mother of three girls. The movie has its moments but isn't the greatest ever made.

* To "ool" - family speak ever since we watched Ringo Starr's Caveman way back when the kids were little. Even our dog knows what the word means. One of our all-time family cult movies.

(Saw you via Inspire Me Thursday.)

My favorite photos of those of the mundane variety, glimpses into other people's lives and how they live. This captures that perfectly.

Oh yeah...my kitchen would look about the same at this moment -- which is why I didn't take a photograph!!! LOL!! You are brave!

I wasn't brave enough to take that approach either!

I don't feel so bad about the shape of my kitchen right now, seeing your old-fashioned, but empty, wineglass paired with the derelict coffee cup and the rest of parapernalia waiting for that manic, domestic, cleanly touch. G and GEM
