A Week In The Life of My Kitchen Table

Our kitchen table is just about the only flat surface available in our house. There’s a desk in the office, but I haven’t seen the top of it since we moved in five years ago. I think it’s yellow. Or perhaps blue.

Anyway, any time we want to do anything in this house, it happens at The Table.

Now, no mocking the disco-neon vinyl tablecloth. I like bright colours and plus, it was on sale for only 90 cents at the Superstore. Win-win!

  1. Love this post. My table is not so well-loved. It’s our Ottoman/Coffee table that sees most of the action (except for bk, lu, dinn)

  2. I won’t mock the vinyl. Vinyl’s easily cleanable. I’ll mock our cloth dining room table cloth which is made of, I dunno, some kind of actual cloth that has to be thrown in the laundry when it gets dirty. Since it gets dirty at pretty much every meal, that means I have to wash it everyday (ha! like that’s going to happen) or wait several days till the site of crumbs and ketchup splotches andjuice spills is too much for me to handle.

    I should buy a vinyl table cloth, shouldn’t I?

    1. I was going to correct my spelling of “sight” but actually “site” kind of works grammatically. too. I’ll ignore all my other typographical errors. Please do the same.

      You can now return to regularly scheduled programming.

      (Feeling highly-caffeinated and a tad punchy today.)

  3. I actually love gaudy vinyl tablecloths. And this post. I can’t prepare food on my kitchen table, it’s too low and kills my back. It sees a lot of homework/craft duty, though.

  4. love the table cloth! this post would be about our butcher black in the kitchen.

    so who won? polly or lego? a nd what did you have for dinner? looks good. and what was the snack? that looks good too. give me pictures and i want details.

    1. Hee hee, you are so cute! Lego always beats Polly because the Lego men are heavily armed and looking for a fight, while Polly can never pick an outfit quickly enough to defend herself.

      Dinner was grilled salmon with a maple glaze (way more basic than it sounds), “Mrs Carl Sagan” potatoes (oven roasted chunks), rice, and…salad, I think?

      Snack is banana chocolate chip mini-muffins (Gal Smiley’s go-to food right now) and soy milk. 🙂

    I guess this is what is meant by the kitchen (table) being the heart of the home! It’s where life happens.

  6. Love it! The lowly kitchen table getting it’s 15 minutes of fame. Mine is rarely totally clear and oh so multipurpose too. I think I’ll go give it a hug.

  7. LOLOL, I could have written this post except the last shot, instead of being a nice clean ready-to-face-another-day shot at the end, there would be a little bit of everything from the day stacked and shoved to the corners, and it would only get cleared off when breakfast is served the next day.
