1. I'm trying to continue the habit of washing up directly after meals. Meaning Jonathan washes and I dry and put away. As a result, I have a clean and shiny sink, too. Huh.
2. This mean we can use real cereal bowls (once I buy cereal and milk and soy milk, I mean. Have to restock post Pesach.) We've been using plastic ones. Our dairy set has bowls, but they're clearly mean for soup - too large for cereal the way we eat it. Our Pesach dairy set (now put away like everything else from Pesach - YAY!) is Corelle and has perfect sized and shaped bowls (which will never hold cereal.) I'm already looking at replacements.com, and I've found a number of similar ones.
3. It's odd to see the counters and stove without aluminum foil on them, or the table without a cover.
4. I still have boxes of year-round stuff to put away (or maybe discard), but I have a functional kitchen again.
I hope everyone who celebrated any sort of holiday in the past week or so had an enjoyable or spiritual or renewing one. We did.
