an unexpected kind of pretty
I spend a lot of time at this kitchen sink of mine, and usually don't give it much thought. However, it recently captured my attention as it was looking rather neglected and uninviting. Really, it had become downright unfriendly! This hardworking sink of mine just really needed a good scrubbing.
The dirty dishes were washed and set on a towel to dry.
I scrubbed away with baking soda, vinegar, and steel wool to rid the corners of that calcified hard water which always seems to build up.
And somehow, having this sparkling sink made me notice the simple beauty of a pear core I had cut in fours to share with the goats.
There's a certain unexpected kind of pretty in these everyday, ordinary things - a pear core, a clean sink - very simple and pretty basic. Unadorned. That's the best kind of pretty, after all.
