Where was once a kitchen (and where someday again shall be), we currently have a hallway with windows, a pretty floor, a fridge, a toaster, and a desk with a microwave on it. It’s fine. That’s all we need. Our survival is not in question. But here, in no particular order, are the things I now realize I took for granted during the salad days—ironically named since it’s salad and sandwiches around the clock over here.
- Counter height
- Washing dishes—or rather, using dishes knowing they can be washed and used again
- Lights near the microwave at night
- Fried egg sandwiches
- Fresh cookies
Not to worry—I’ve got some new posts coming up for you soon anyway, partly because a home in progress is a filthy breeding ground for DIY, and partly because some cool people will be bringing you guest posts in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I encourage you to reflect upon this list and feel grateful today for what you have. Especially if it’s a kitchen.
