Everything and the Kitchen Sink


We are looking for fixtures for the new house, and decided to go to Lowe's to see some in person.  It is nice ordering on the Internet and getting things shipped, but sometimes you need to touch things to get a good idea of size, quality, etc.
We looked at lighting first, then went to the washers and dryers, then over to toilets and bathroom sinks.  After that it was on to faucets for both bathrooms and kitchen.  On the way there, we passed the displays of kitchen cabinets, set up with countertops, sinks, faucets, wallpaper and flooring.  A mom and her two sons were just leaving the area.
The younger son, probably 5 or 6 years old (I didn't see his teeth, so I was not positive) pointed to a display and said, "That's a beautiful kitchen!  I didn't know they sold kitchens here.  How do they get them out?"
I could see the mom smile slightly, trying not to laugh, as she very seriously told him, "I think they take them apart."  They passed by me not knowing that I'd heard the exchange. 
I love the idea that a kitchen could get delivered to you all set up and ready to use.  The only thing better would be if you could order it that way online and it teleported into place.

  1. Truly a great slice of life just then. Don't you love it? I also love your aside about the teeth; I understand just what you mean. It must have been fun shopping too-very exciting!

  2. Hi Donna,
    Thanks for your comments on my blog--I love seeing your name in my comments, as you are very thoughtful and reflective. We're currently on vacation in Montreal--well, I'm away from the classroom for a week and my husband is at a scientific conference--and I wanted to post something, but didn't want to tell the public that we're away from home. So I settled on these images--all from Montreal. Lots of rain here, but I'm enjoying being away from my normal territory and being out and about and enjoying this city. I would have emailed you, but couldn't find your email address--I knew this comment would find you!

    P.S. Congrats on your retirement cottage--how lucky you are!
