When we bought and remodeled this house, I did contemplate installing a dishwasher in the kitchen I designed, but decided against it (silly me) because 1) I didn't want to give up the cabinet space, and 2) all the units seemed to be exceedingly wasteful of energy.
That man I'm married to? Papa Pea? For years now, the wonderful man has (cheerfully even) volunteered to do any and all the dirty dishes I create each Saturday and Sunday. That is one heckuva treat for me, and one I totally, absolutely, utterly appreciate.
But back to the title of this post.
To the left of our sink is where the rinsed and stacked dishes to be washed are set. See that little rectangular frame above the counter? That's where I've always kept a seasonal small picture or quilted wall hanging. From now on, only one picture will occupy that space.

Just in case you can't see the printing clearly, it says:
Truer words were never spoken, and I smile every time I look at it.
