The Original Clean Queen Doesn't Stage a Picture Post

Today, as I was baking, Katherine called me. I looked down at her, and smiled. She was trying to get toys into my dish-washing gloves. I grabbed my camera and took a picture. So cute.
But what was that?? My baby carrier, draped over the back of the couch. I couldn't post *that* picture; everyone would see how messy things were.

I glanced around the kitchen. Oh, my! How had this happened??

The dishtowel was bedraggled,
the tupperware was sort of thrown into its place,
there was a used banana sprawled all over the fruit dish -

....even the cupboards were open.
And not *neatly* open; they were all at sixes and sevens.

What a mess. I decided that I was taking myself too seriously; that I should post the picture anyways. And for good measure, I'm posting other pictures, too; to shatter Nelleke's nice, but not altogether accurate, image of me as the original Clean Queen. You see, Nelleke?

And no, this wasn't staged.


  1. Love it Dinah, So you are human after all :-)

  2. I don't think I can ever think of you in the same way again, Dinah. =)

  3. That's what happens when you have little people. :) W

  4. Haha, Wes; most of the mess is above Katherine's reach! But yes, little people do complicate formerly tidy lives, don't they.

  5. Haha, my place looks like that *after* I clean up :o).
