Worshipping our icons

12.14.15When did the kitchen become a shrine? The two covered items are those we worship, the microwave and the toaster oven. In order to keep them functioning, they must be covered with a towel when not in use. This may sound silly, but it works. We now have had the microwave for more than one year! It’s a miracle. The toaster oven is new (previous post) and therefore larger than the microwave.

The candles and vases are a nice touch, though I don’t keep the vases filled with fresh flowers as in a proper shrine. Now take a look at the opposite side of the kitchen, where the kitchen mother overlooks all the activity.


I particularly like the forest of travel mugs below her and the wine and water glasses on either side. I guess that covers everything.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
