I left the blue-handled brush in the sink for ease of locating, left the dishwasher open and sat down at the computer.

I think you can see what bothers me about this photo.
But forget about what is on the counter. Do you see that fish painting on the far wall. RePete (age 7) did that. Just gorgeous. I look at that after I look at the counter and all is right with my world.
