while doing dishes

At the end of a weekend. . .
the dishes are done. . .
with a lemon loaf on the counter.
I didn't really plan to post a picture of dishwashing . .
but then when the picture was taken. . .
I thought the simple task seemed quite lovely.
Next Monday is Valentines!
Start celebrating with someone sweet today!
I've  got my heart pans ready. . .
now I just need a "little" help.

We're all excited over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
We're having a cookbook giveaway today. .
so off you go to see Kathy's Soft Brown Bread.

all for now . .


  1. I love the new blog look :)
    That is the most romantic dishwashing picture I've ever seen....

  2. With that photo you might change peoples' minds about dishwashing and its potential for romance!
    I've been over to MGCC already this morning, so I know what that bread looks like!....and I've pre-ordered a copy of the book, so if I don't win, I'll still be a happy cook!

  3. Washing dishes by candlelight while wearing heels...you can make anything look appealing!

    I'm watching the count...over at MGCC. Lot's of traffic today! How exciting.

  4. These are the kinds of homey scenes that warm and comfort. I love them! Thanks for the head's up...off to MGCC.

  5. Love those suds glowing in the light like that!

  6. Your new blog look is perfect! It creates the most warm, cozy, inviting, and beautiful ambience. I love it!!!!

  7. Your photo is beautiful and almost makes me look forward to doing the dishes tonight :).

  8. Somethings' missing...Somehow I think I have seen that photo before...Did someone crop it???
    Smiling all day with you and your hearts.

  9. I gasped......then I saw your kitchen suds and knew all was just fine. dishes by candlelight......it is Valentines day soon. Why not make it a month! Love the new look on your blog.

  10. Lovely new look on your blog, Lovella! I am afraid to change mine :)

    I actually like to wash dishes ..as long as my husband helps me dry them and put them away. We are a good team!

    I always enjoy visiting MGCC --today's bread looked so good!

  11. Love the romantic looking kitchen there! Can't quite see those heels ...

  12. Capturing an everyday moment is a wonderful idea!
    Such a soft glow from the candle.
    I especially admire the fabric heart hanging from the cabinet's knob.

  13. Oh Lovella - so coy - I'm smiling because I know the rest of the story.
    I love the changes to your blog. Very nice.
