The kitchen in this SITAG house is lovely, but the window over the sink gives the dishwasher a dismal view. Until the sun starts creeping in. Somewhere around 3 or 4 o'clock every afternoon, the sun plays with shade and shadow with the retaining wall.
This house is built into the side of a ridge, and the sun picks out each little nook and cranny. It's one of my favorite times of each day, waiting for the sunshine to show up. (And sometimes earthquakes show up, too, but when we are in town we can check them out on Today's Earthquakes. In the wee hours of this morning, we got another little shaker!)
