Not Goodwill, Greatwill!

We will now pause for a brief intermission from our regularly scheduled homage to the holidays. On the way to Bible study today with half an hour to spare it seemed silly not to zip into the Goodwill store a block from the church. Boy, am I ever glad I did! You may recall my bewilderment at the chaos resulting on Thanksgiving last week, despite the fact the kitchen is much bigger than where we lived before, with a lot more counter space. Still, trying to get a big meal together for more than two people found us running out of space early on in the process. You can probably imagine how thrilled I was to see this sturdy helper, clearly meant to come home and alleviate some of the problem.Behold!

How cool is this?

It seems to be in decent shape and just needed scrubbing once it was here.
It has a much-needed drawer,

towel racks on both sides--or maybe those are to hang pots from?--
and a removable butcher block cutting board on top. It has wheels, too. I can tell this is going to be a super useful addition to our lives. Of course, trying to get it into the car was comical in the extreme, but the employee and I managed eventually. And it was much easier to remove once I got home again. This seems highly likely to be in the running for best thrift score in the month of December. Stay tuned for updates!

Take it easy,

Wow, that DOES look like a great addition to the kitchen! But the big question remains -- what do your furry friends think??
