My husband and I divide dinner responsibilities this way: I cook, he cleans. It’s a terrific arrangement. And he keeps our lives exciting with his gravity-defying, nail-biter towers of clean dishes. Anyone else worried about that white mixing bowl in the front?
Next up in my list of Thanksgiving favorites is “Thanksgiving is Here!” by Diane Goode
This is a story of a large family gathering. I think it appeals to me because it’s all a bit...chaotic. 😂 And that’s one of the things I love most about gathering with my husbands family for dinners and holidays! He’s the oldest of 6 so an immediate family gathering includes 14 adults & 6 kids when all is said and done.
I LOVE it.
All of it.
The illustrations & story in this book capture it well.
And, I was particular in choosing the dishes shot from the inside. Growing up, my Grandpa Braun (moms side) was adamant that once the ladies were done cooking the men would wash & dry the dishes. What fun to discover such a familiar memory in these pages!

Our happy little flower child helping out with the dishes! 🌻🌸🌼.
Our tiny house on wheels doesn't have a dishwasher like most other RVs. When we first started our adventure, we thought it would be a hard adjustment hand washing everything for a family of 5! We were truly surprised that it hasn't been more of a "chore" cleaning up after meals. We usually do dishes right after each meal so the dishes never pile up and keep our tiny space from feeling cluttered. It's been a nice adjustment and it is even better now that we have little helpers! 😁
My view as I wash the dishes. I'm repeating this verse to myself as I listen to "You Make Me Brave" by @bethelworship
on repeat. (Stop what you're doing, and go listen to it now!) Some days can be discouraging, I'm choosing to believe truth today.
What encourages you on the hard days?
To my loving nephew thank you for helping me...Ganyan ka ka addict sa games🤣🤣🤣 #washingdishes
