green bean massacre

plastic bag of green beans and cat

It never fails. I make a grocery store run, I end up with a green bean massacre on my hands. (My cats will eat all sorts of plants – including lilies – and green beans are one of their favorite things to snack on. When I bring my groceries in, they immediately go on a search-find-mission for fun, edible things. Below is a shot of one unrepentant cat and his mess…)

The above photo was taken early in the morning while I was preparing my breakfast and lunch. I lay on my kitchen floor beside my refrigerator to take it. This is the towel (rag, really) that I use to wipe my hands while I’m working in the kitchen. I change it every day for a clean one. It hangs from a hook with a clip – the kind you’d use in your laundry room, to hang a small item to dry.

My kitchen sink on Wednesday morning.

The day didn’t end well. I woke up with a migraine which got progressively worse as the morning went on. I left a community meeting partway through the noon hour, afraid I was going to vomit. (I did, later in the afternoon. Twice.) Spent the rest of the day in my bed, sick as a dog. When I have a day like this, where I don’t feel well, I get really down. Enough said.

i spilled these blueberries all over the supermarket floor

I spilled these blueberries yesterday morning all over the supermarket floor while I was grocery shopping. I bought them and brought them home anyhow (I hate waste), and disinfected them by soaking them first in vinegar (straight, not diluted) and then in 3% hydrogen peroxide. This food disinfection technique is supposed to be as good as chlorine bleach.

Shortly after this photo was taken I ate the blueberries, and have suffered no ill effects – so I guess I could say it works. Ish.

Just some random kitchen photos from this past weekend. I feel like I’ve had a bit of a dry spell, photography-wise, but that may be changing…

I appreciate clean dishes and local fruit and the light in my kitchen.

vegetable scraps in kitchen sink

It’s been a while since I’ve taken regular photos of my kitchen sink. I used to shoot them every morning while I made my breakfast and bag lunch. I still love looking at vegetable scraps in my kitchen sink, though. They’re so colourful, and textural, and full of endless patterns and rhythms.

I appreciate vegetables.
