Our kitchen table

I bet you never thought about your kitchen table, or have you? It is a piece of furniture that is simply there hanging around in your kitchen taking up space or used as a community meeting spot in the house.

That table is a place to sit around and enjoy a meal or celebrate something it is simply always there. Then there’s the time when we sit around the kitchen table to tell our tales of adventure or to cry our eyes out with tears of pain or sorrow our trusty table brings us together to plan our next vacation or plan our careers. The kitchen table is the center of the universe at home.
Think about it the kitchen table fits to your kitchen, it maybe modern, vintage or something you made yourself, but it is your kitchen table. It makes a statement about the people who live in your house. It endures things that no other piece of furniture in the house endures or puts up with.

The kitchen table is your desk, a place to eat, a place to sit around and watch someone cook… it is simply there. People pound their fists on the table, throw things on it or fold their laundry on it… The kitchen table is there.

Very seldom does the kitchen table change like other pieces of furniture in your house. We buy a new sofa, or dining room table, but the kitchen table stays where it is. It has found its place in the house and knows that it belongs to the house, and season for season it is there.

If a kitchen table could talk, I am sure it could tell a tale or two and maybe even surprise those who hear the tales being told. Or the secrets the table could keep and not tell anyone…(not that the table can talk, but if it could OMG!!)

But the best thing about a kitchen table could be the memories it brings back of carefree days as a child when coming home from school on a cold winter day to find a warm cup of cacao and the smell of fresh baked cookies and then surprisingly the warm cookies would appear on the table to be gobbled down…. Those are the wonderful memories of the kitchen table.

Sit at your kitchen table and enjoy it and the fond memories it brings back!!!

Winning Strategy … Not Today!

The amazing fact that there is endless information about everything nowadays and the amazing fact is; do we need it? What about playing the lottery you ask; well there seems to be a strategy that one should use as I read a while ago and if I follow those strict rules I am bound to be a winner of a tremendous amount of money….

WOW you say and is too good to be true. I think the same but that wonderful email told me differently and would give me the needed knowledge (that word I would use abstractly) to play the lottery and become a millionaire overnight! I feel rich already and haven’t even invested a cent….

Like always when my guy gets wind of anything that I think is a great opportunity to invest; say $2.00 and win millions – how can one not jump on the band wagon? Always a party pooper, but then again he may want to protect from those devious individuals out there sending those emails promising me to win millions playing the lottery.

I called around earlier to my gal friends asking them if they got the same email that I had gotten and low and behold a couple of them had… what a relief that I am not alone but then again my chances of winning millions is decreasing because of the competition from my friends… My friends knew right away when I asked, that I had the same plan as they did and refused to say more about how they were going to win the lottery. After contemplating on the subject I decided to call them up again and invite them over for coffee and of course… PRINT OUT your email or no coffee!

Well, there was a commotion at my front door when all my friends showed up with their trusty email’s in their hand.. There we gathered at the kitchen table and showed our emails to each other, and then a disappointing fact was brought to light! What you are thinking?????

There was small print at the end of the email saying that we only have to send $50.00 to them to learn how to win at the lottery. My dream of becoming a millionaire died at that second and so did that of my other gal friends too! Why does the small print written on everything take something from you and only the big print may give you something????

So, remember before you want to get rich…. Read the small print because it maybe more expensive than it’s worth!
