Dry Dishes--as per Candy. Nails in dough update.

Candy asked that we show our dishes in the diswasher...I am the dishwasher, so you get to see the dishes drying,

and my hands (the dishwasher) doing the dishes. [age of sink, unknown, perhaps approaching antiquity; therefore, soon, I can sell it on ebay]

{The white thing across my nuckles is a beam of sunlight}
Some of our friends are horrified that we do not have a dishwasher. I have to tell them that I used to have five dishwashers, but they all got married. (the children display an askew look and then wisper in their Momma's ear...) That story is getting too old to tell anymore.

We are Too Much, waaaaayyy too much!

Yesterday when DH got home and he read my blog, we found a comment by BellaMama asking why didn't I use a magnet..................(What?! that would have been too easy.)

DH said that when he told of my 'adventure' at the office, one of the guys said: "why doesn't she use a magnet?" DH answer that it was because the nails were brass. [you know 'guys': end of comment, end of conversation]

Just letting you know that the magnet thought crossed my mind several times; however, the very logical person that I am, I squelched the thought by responding with another thought of: "nah!, the nails are aluminium, so a magnet would not work" The thought came back again and again {do you think the Lord was telling me? sure He was!}

While laughing and laughing, DH said get one of the refrigerator magnets, and a brush nail and see what happens...You sure guessed it! the whole brush attached to the powerful magnet (recovered from a hard drive) which lives on my refrigerator door...we laughed for quite a long time, because we (both) were so sure the nails would not 'come' to the magnet.

Last I checked this morning, there were many birds eating the dough at the compost corral.

I have found that I am not as thorough as I believed myself to be. RED FLAG OF CAUTION TO ALL OF YOU WHO READ THIS: BE THOROUGH!

I'll leave you with this:

"Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." Pro 30:5-6
In His hands, ^__^

Perhaps next time you'll listen to the Lord when he whispers so persistently!

I'm rather unusual in that I have a dishwasher but prefer not to use it. My kids have gotten used to the idea that the dishwasher is just a place to stick photos and now do the dishes without complaining. It's an old dishwasher and is noisy and takes forever to do a cycle and I don't feel that the dishes come out clean at the end of it.

When we renovate our kitchen (hopefully not too far off in the distant future) I'm not planning on including a dishwasher - even if all my 'dishwashers' have left home by then. I actually get quite a lot of satisfaction from washing dishes - it's just cleaning up the mess the kids leave in the kitchen that drives me nutty.

I think your dishtowel is really pretty! As well as those tea cups!
I guess we all are learning to listen to that still small voice of God.
I hope to be posting my dishwasher pictures as well.
Have a blessing of a day!!
