Friday: horizontal

Thank you, God, for this good life, and forgive us if we do not love it enough.  Garrison Keillor

To soffit or not to soffit-that is the kitchen cabinet dilemma.  There is an awkward space between the tops of most cabinet tops and the ceiling – if that space is dry walled in, it is referred to as a soffit.  I opted for an open space, and soon learned that the more decor I put in that space, the more dirt and grunge (it is a kitchen!) it collected – making cleaning a major event.  Then I discovered wall art!  I love this expression of gratitude from the Prairie Home Companion guru, Garrison Keillor.  It was perfect to fill this long horizontal space and makes cleaning a matter of wiping the top of the cabinet clean once a month or so – whether it needs it or not. 🙂 AND it reminds me everyday, all day, that I am living a life most blessed.
