One of the goals I had for this vacation at home time was to organize the home. So far, I’m behind. Only have accomplished the first floor, but every cabinet, drawer, closet and cubby has been scoured and organized. It is a wonderful feeling to have order again.
(The window above the kitchen sink, see blue hen on the left)
It thrilled me to no end to find out how many other people have a chicken holder in their kitchens.
One of the things I had to do was move my baking supplies to a bigger cabinet. It seems they have outgrown their previous space. I don’t seem to do as much baking in the summer, or at least lately, so very obviously as shown below, I need to get cracking before the brown sugar multiplies any further and takes over the world.
So I hit the binders again hoping to finish filing all of my magazine clippings. And by this I mean, the pages already ripped out of the magazines. This is a never-ending process. I have four years worth of Martha Stewart Living and Country Living magazines to rip apart and categorize.
Being so proud of my neat and orderly downstairs, I treated the table to some flowers.
I think the table truly appreciates it.
So at 11:00 p.m. Friday night, I have almost completed the binders. There is a small handful of clippings left to do. I am beginning to think that the baking binder may have to be split into two. What do you think? Oh and see that mug. That’s my new mug that I bought for myself on vacation at Garnett Pottery. I almost pee my pants with excitement when I go in there. The girls hate it. The mug is their River Green glaze. I had to really talk myself through the store. Bowls, crocks, vases, and even a set of canisters, all in that beautiful, earthy glaze. They are local to the area and only sell in their one small store, so whew, I am spared only a once or twice a year temptation. I didn’t know what I was going to get for myself and then remembered posting this, talking about only needing one cup and all the priceless memories that then attach to that object.
So this shot, though dark (it’s late) is a preview. Once I complete the filing tomorrow, I am going to re-shoot and post this picture. It’s going to be my first (and maybe only, who knows) contest. Want to give a little back to this lovely little community. Look for a new post tomorrow.
