Many of you have asked what is left to be done in the kitchen to have the remodeling completed. I wanted to take you on a pictorial tour with explanations (which would help me get it together also), but just couldn't get it done today.
I slept a little late because my OFF switch suddenly flipped to ON at 3:14 this morning, and I couldn't get back to sleep until almost 5. If I could have mustered up the energy, I should have gotten up then and gotten a running start on the day. Instead, I finally drifted back to sleep and didn't wake until 7:20. Arrrrgh, talk about feeling behind the whole day!
Spending most of the morning (what there was remaining of it) at my desk, and was (lo and behold!) able to find the bottom of the stacks of accumulated jetsam and flotsam . . . and the top of my desk which I hadn't seen for over two weeks.
Not great, but lots better than it was.
Then I did some financial work (situation wasn't as bad as I had thought . . . how did that happen?) and got ready to head out to town to run some long overdue errands.
Picked up Chicken Mama at her office in town at 4 and we went up to the farm together to get milk products which we both needed.
Back home to concoct pretend pizzas on tortillas (hey, we think they're good) for dinner. Did a gargantuan heap of dishes and now need to get ready for bed so I can get up at a decent time in the morning instead of being such a slug-a-bed.
I'm going to attack the start of the final (ha, wanna bet?) organization of the kitchen tomorrow. One of the first areas is the new shelf arrangement for my cookbooks. They've been living in our bedroom . . .
. . . for too long now and need to be subjected to a ruthless sorting out before going on their new shelves. Stand by for some possible give-a-ways of ones I decide I must part with. I have close to 200 of them (I know, I know) and it's been years since I've sat down and sorted them into ones I really can't live without and ones I rarely use anymore.
BUT, if it should maybe possibly be a breezy, sunny day (which is NOT forecast until next Monday --- yeesh!), I will throw open windows and paint kitchen cabinets and then go outside to polyurethane cabinet doors. One way or the other, it's gonna be a busy, productive day.
