Capture the Everyday: Our Island
This is the perfect shot of part of our every day life, especially after my PYHO post from yesterday. [Here's that link, but wait til you finish reading this to go read, or read it and be sure to come back, OK? PYHO!] See how I mentioned that so much of my days of late is me trying to (or wishing I could) turn our house into a cleaner and less cluttered place?
This is our kitchen island. And oddly enough, the place I have started with is my kitchen. I am reading a book right now, or parts of it on and off, where they say that if you have anything in your kitchen that does not relate to eating, serving or cooking food get it OUT of there. And so I am trying. So this picture is a bit old, but the island is not yet clear. Interesting how I have half of it with bowls of cat food (never mind that this shot actually captured the cats, that's a whole other aspect of our every day life!) and the other half is clutter.
That's cause I'm trying to get that crap off my kitchen table. And counters. And somehow the island is still fair game. But I'll get through it. Somehow. Eventually. Soon. Or I'll die trying. Not really. But it sounds so serious, heavy and dramatic to say so, doesn't it?
Anyway, that's my shot. That's my every day. With a little picnicking to slap some creative drama into it. And my "watermark" or something. Aren't our sweeties beautiful though? The gray and white one is Angel. She's our only girl. And the other one is our fatty Clyde. He's a feral cat from the streets of Brooklyn. As in NYC. As in one of my peeps. We saved him and he doesn't even let us get close. Remind me to talk sometime about the scene we had in our house when we got all four cats to the vet a while back. Hilarious. Household comedy at its best.
But for now, well, there's my island. Half covered with arts & crafts paper, flashcards, newspaper, coupons and probably some artwork that didn't make it onto the fridge. You can see that in the background. And if you've gotten this far thanks for reading and not just stopping at the picture, Because it is pretty cute. Despite the mess!
I'm Capturing the Everyday today with my friend Melissa from Adventuroo, but for some reason I can't seem to copy over her button coding without ending up with a box around it so I'll skip that and just link back. If you want to join in and share your household piles feel free to do so by heading to her place to link up.
