Doing the Dishes the Old Fashioned Way

When we moved into this house, there was a dishwasher we could buy from the previous people.

We did, and I was very happy. I have been the principal dish-washer for … a very long time!

At home, I did the dishes and my sister dressed and bathed the little ones. I don’t know how it came to be that way…maybe because I never had much patience with the little ones?

And then? when I got married, I was , of course, again the dish-washer. (My parents now have a dishwasher machine 😉 )

So, like I said, I was very happy to give the job to the machine.

He has a more normal workplace in a shed in the garden, with tools and seeds and such, but this is his pottery workplace. If you can’t find him anywhere and it’s summer, he’ll be somewhere in the garden.

If you can’t find him anywhere and it is winter,? he’s bound to be in his pottery workshop.

I love coming in there and taking a peek. There’s always something interesting to find. Or just to chat with dad while he is working on t

he wheel. Making something new. Sometimes he makes something that I really think very pretty. Then, […]
