Ready To Go

A nineteenth-century housekeeping practice still makes sense. After herself washed and then dried the glasses, silver and good china in two dishpans set on oilcloth on the dining table itself, it was customary simply to set the table for breakfast and leave it overnight, ready for a head start the next day. Dry glasses with a lint-free linen towel.

I wash dishes in the kitchen, but it eases the burden of morning fog to have most of the morning organized when I stumble downstairs -30-
