In a new kitchen

At the best of times, it is almost always a challenge whenever anyone has to get used to a new kitchen. For a blind person like me, it is even more difficult.

I need to learn my way around my new kitchen. I need to ensure that I can find my appliances: stove, microwave, fridge, and toaster oven. I need to be able to find the various cupboards and to be able to locate what I seek: plates, bowls, cups and saucers. I need to be able to find my cutlery and kitchen towels, and of course! My tins and cans, boxes and packages, and let me not forget my pots and pans, dishes and more. I also need to find my way around my counter tops.

I tackle my new kitchen in a methodical way. First I identify what I need in order to be functional then I make sure that my cupboards and drawers are all organized in an orderly manner so that I can find what I need. All in a day's work.
