Kitchen Counter Woes...



I put and old SD card in my camera and found one photo on it. the above photo from ......are you ready ???    2011.....




No idea why I took this photo , but added red arrows so you can see what hubby does to my kitchen counter which causes me much WOE...


I took the below photos yesterday to show what it is supposed to look like.
I
 really don't want the pills there because I hate looking at them, but if they are not in plain sight I forget our pills. 

Note to myself... do a post on Senior Memory... ha ha ho ho how will I remember this.


Now if only those counter tops were Marble.... sigh......and the cabinets were not white and the kitchen was not from 1989....

We are the same way about forgetting medicine. It has to be in plain sight and even then, we have trouble taking it!!!
Your counters are so shiny, clean and pretty.
John likes to keep his things out...like his fav coffee mug, etc. drives me nuts. If not for me, he would never wash the mug!

I didn't understand all of the computer talk.

First off, in the post below this, I like the 1st one better. Cute kid you were!! Sweet.

As for the counter top, I know just what you mean. I can have it all cleaned off and by the time the day ends, it's back to being cluttered! Love the bust!!

you can try retrieving your images from the SD card/s through ZAR recovery program. It's free to install and works pretty good.

My counter is rarely neat. I like my stuff out. You would probably be freaked out. Try formatting the card in the camera you are going to use it with rather than with your computer.

Mersad said...

I know you think the kitchen is old, because you are used to it so much, but I think that it really looks nice. The white adds a clean look, and grey and white is a very elegant combination!

Deb said...

I like your Kitchen...my counter top is always a mess...it is clear for like 5 minutes...oh well...we do live in our house..great photos...

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Men!!! I was just in the kitchen and right where my husband was fixing his tomatoes last night was a ton of salt on the counter. I've told him before that he needs to put on his reading glasses to see the mess he leaves. Your kitchen looks neat and tidy......

OH DO I AGREE I LOVE A CLUTTER FREE COUNTER AREA SOMETIMES THINGS JUST APPEAR ON OURS TOO BUT IT DOES MAKE FOR DIFFICULTY COOKING. I ALSO LEAVE MY PILL CONTAINER ON THE COUNTER IN THE AM. I DRINK MY COFFEE IN THE MORNING AND SEVERAL OF MY VITAMINS LIKE CALCIUM ARE NOT ABSORBED AS WELL WITH COFFEE SO I TAKE THEM AT LUNCH.
HUGS c

You are much too much of a neat-freak to me... You wouldn't like my house. It's not TOO cluttered --but we make things convenient to find ---and we know it's just ours to look at.. ha ha I do admire you for keeping it so neat... Please come and clean my house!!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

I like white cupboards.Maybe because I don't have them.Fun pictures.

Gail said...

I like your kitchen.

Not showing you mine!

George said...

Your counter (in the bottom pictures) look very much like ours, which I guess makes sense since our house is from that era as well.

Betsy has a husband who also clutters up her counters.

Montanagirl said...

My weekly pill dispenser sits on the counter as well. I just don't remember to take them all otherwise. I like your kitchen, and all the countertop space.

Miss Debbie said...

I know what you mean about "stuff" on counters. My Hubby puts it there, too...and then I out it up!! :-) Funny...I want "white" cabinets!!

Rose said...

I actually like your kitchen...love the white....and have no desire for marble.

Rose said...

My counters are always a mess...I used to did not have half the cabinet space and they were neater.

photowannabe said...

It looks pretty spiffy to me.
My counters seem to be a catch all for things. I put things away and the next time I turn around things are all over it again.
There are only two of us...why or why??

DawnTreader said...

Even with the woe, I'd say you've got one clean kitchen!

Rebecca said...

I seem to always be cleaning off the counter tops. In one day they seem to be like magnets collecting things.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Your kitchen is super tidy...mine? not so much! But I do know what you mean about the hubs leaving their things on the counters. It makes me crazy!

Ann said...

Your kitchen is so clean. Mine isn't even close to looking that spotless.
I would love a kitchen makeover. Come to think of it I would love to do a total remodel to my entire house

A Quiet Corner said...

LOL about the memory and pills...I have to remind the Pres every night, who clutters and gets the counters all crumbs constantly!!!!...:)JP

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my GOSH are you kidding? Your kitchen is beautiful. Just beautiful. And it is so clean and so neat - you should see mine - well no - you should not see mine. lol sandie

LC said...

Ditto Mersad.

SquirrelQueen said...

My kitchen is even older, I suspect it was last remodeled in the late seventies. I want white cabinets!

You don't have much on your counters but I have even less. My cats would love to play with those pill bottles and they would have Neptune on the floor in no time. And they are of course not allowed on the counter tops. MOL!!!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I think your kitchen looks fresh and clean and neat! And I just read the other day that marble counter tops were going out of style. If you can believe what you read.

Catherine said...

Your kitchen looks nice and bright to me! I have white cupboards too. They used to have brass knobs. A few years ago I changed all the knobs to silver. It looks like a new kitchen!

Happy weekend Sandra!

Eva Ason said...

Betty Manousos said...

wow, your kitchen looks so pretty! tidy and clean as well. love it!!
i'm purple jealous.
lol!

Susannah said...

I think your kitchen looks very nice...not dated at all! I'll say one thing...it sure is very clean. That is what I like....a clean kitchen and I try to keep the clutter out of there. Your yellow pill tops looked like a bouquet of flowers when I first looked at the picture. Is that a bust of Bob?.....with the full hair and the beard?

Dee said...

I will change kitchens...mine is a generic 10 year old apartment kitchen...but thankful it serves it purpose. When Max is here...our counter is piled up...:( If company comes I sweep everything into a basket.

Debbie said...

i think it is a pretty kitchen, well maintained!! we built our home in 1984, my cabinets and couter tops are the orginal and i think they look amazing!!
