Can You Find It?

Brian and I have had this ongoing discussion about peelers. Nothing seems to be fantastic. We've talked and shopped and talked and shopped literally for years to find a good one. We never actually bought one until we flew home for the funeral in April. Finally. It's ridiculous to be so slow but we were. But of course then we were super excited about it. It felt sharp enough to do a great job for the standard Zufelt dishes of mashed potato and carrot but also for canning so peaches, apples, tomatoes and the like.

The kids were so excited about our return home and all of the treasures we bought that they wanted to help unload everything. We gave them random items and instructed them where they were to be put away.

Jacob was handed the peeler and instructed that it was to go in the bottom drawer in the kitchen. We only have one set of drawers so it should e super easy. Yet the next day I tried to to use it and couldn't find it. I searched and searched. How frustrating! After all these years it was finally purchased and now missing before its inaugural run. For weeks we looked all over the kitchen in all the dish drawers and shelves. Eventually I gave up. Assuming it had been delivered to the trash can instead of the drawer I put it on the USA shopping list again so we could go get another one.

Today I happened upon it. It was in under the sink mixed among the dish scrubbers and dishwasher soap and bottle washing thinga a ma jiggies. It's neon green. Why we didn't see it weeks ago I guess we can chalk up to the fact that Gina prefers to hand wash all the dishes so she doesn't ever use the dish washer soap and didn't know what we were missing anyway. Good thing I ran the dishwasher this weekend or we may have never found it!
