We are in the throes of a kitchen renovation. Tomorrow the kitchen sink will be dismantled, there will be no sink until at least Saturday, likely later. I am flirting with pouting about it. I thought that I’d culled all there was to cull when I emptied the cabinets and yet I can tell I have things that are tethered to me in some sort of subconscious, self-defeating sentimentality. Each trip to the makeshift dish station sees me making halting jerky moves as I consider and then reconsider adding something to the donate pile. It was a relief to drive away from the house and its suffocating prison of to-dos.
Here’s a peek at what we did for a sweet sliver of the weekend and here is a link to Suzi Banks Baum’s blog Laundry Line Divine. She invited me to write a post about #WhatMothersMake
We edged around bodies of water all weekend too.
Too chilly,,,,,,,,but I am tempted.
Thank you for the mention. Your post is just a delight and I look forward to more!
As to the dishes and culling, I better get busy.
Ha. Didn’t mean to send you packing to do more work. I do think life is a long study in curation, no? Memories, things, hurts, and hopes…
What lovely photographs–that water! Oh, summer, please get here soon. Glad you got to get away for a bit. And a little bit of pouting never hurt anyone.
Thank you, I needed that.
Oh these are beautiful. It’s still so cold here. xo
Soon, right? xo
Memorial Day? Yes?
God I hope so, we may still be painting the kitchen. Let’s start a StormTracker kind of thing but for boating, k?
No kitchen sink would deeply uproot me. But then I don’t like change. These are amazing photos!!!
Thank you, both for understanding and for liking the pics 🙂
I absolutely love these pictures, most of all the three girls, you and them, and you and Sean. xox
That most recent comment was me – not sure why Anonymous!
having no sink in the kitchen is a big problem, i remember when we ask for a renovation that we have to clean the dishes in the bathroom…
by the way you walk bare-footed? in the sea? love the pic though
