There is an backwards L shape where the counter meets the stove top extension. A vertical line of drawers on the right hand side of the sink holds the type of things you would expect: the top drawer originally was the knife drawer. A handy location for all those odds and ends which just don’t fit into the knife block. The one below it was where I intended to house all the smaller measuring devices. On the counter reside two containers for all those stove top mixing and stirring utensils.
This evening I needed a pair of kitchen scissors or, failing that, an old knife. Opening up the drawer …
Ok, absence of scissors but presence of knives. plus an obvious accumulation of not an inconsiderable number of other items.
I started carefully fishing and pulled out some measuring cups, a tea-strainer, and three of those delightful sharp little skewers for ears of corn.
Now, even the presence of four different kinds of corkscrews doesn’t explain those corks. Since the total consumption of wine around here amounts to an occasional glass in the evening consumed by George on those nights when he is in town, I an only postulate them being dropped in the drawer or rolling off the counter when the final glass of wine has been poured from a bottle. I have a sneaking suspicion that it has taken a significant number of months to accumulate
Suppose anyone is going to be upset that I moved them all of 1 meter – into the trash?
