Simple things. For me it seems to often boil down to just that. Let's start at the beginning. Well maybe not the beginning, but back in time just a few months.
When we found our new home, we knew that it had not always been lived in gently. The owner we purchased from had done a lot to repair and update, but there is still work to be done. While we are up to the task, our plan is to take our time - enjoy the process.
One thing that really (REALLY) bothered me was the bread board in the kitchen. It was dirty and gooey and generally not something that I would put food on for any reason. I scrubbed; I used bleach; I used cleanser; I tried lemon juice and salt; I left it out in the sun. Still I wasn't comfortable using it. But I use a bread board a lot!
Then I had that light bulb moment and searched the Internet. And there it was.
The package arrived on Friday. We have used it at every meal since then. The kitchen feels right. It really is the simple things.
