I was just scattered yesterday probably because I was trying to do too much at once. One of my many bad habits. I did get some of the things done and I am happy about it but several important things got way laid.
|Here is the medicine, measuring cup, and Tupperware cupboard before I cleaned it out.|
|Here it is clean.||I threw away 1/2 of a 13 gallon trash can of expired medicine. I mean things from 2009. Now I have extra room and I also have room for my cooking bowls.|
|My dish cupboard which is a china cabinet to the dining room and a pass through vanity.|
|Now I put all the extra glasses in the china cabinet and put my small appliances that I use all the time, Rice cooker and crock pot up where they belong. I also have room for something else.|
|My corner of shame.||Appliances that I had not put away mostly because I could not lift my arms at all for the last month.|
|Everything put away! I have not cleaned the floors yet.|
Another view into living room. There is a pocket door here. This little cabinet used to hold the telephone. The basket still holds the phone books, address books, paper and pens. This cupboard used to hold a days bread baking for our family when they lived in Sweden. Three shelves with net over the openings to keep out vermin and let the bread breath. I now store all my cook books here. The butter Churn also is from the old homestead.
|Add I also cleaned out the china cabinet drawers. Napkins and Chinese food, nori mats. Paper plates and party supplies, garbage bags and dog and cat things. I wish I had taken before pictures.|
|I moved the ice tongs to behind the potato basket as they stuck out under the china cabinet like a dead limb. I need to get a better container for my upstairs wheat storage. This Ziggy's bucket is so attractive.|
The problem was I made such a mess upstairs that I in full ADD mode did not take a very important medication, I did not go pay the house payment or make a deposit. I did not pick up my prescriptions which I needed last night, I did not get the 2 bridesmaid dresses that were due first thing this morning done until after we cleaned the bank. So I was up until midnight sewing.
Result, I am very sore and stiff today and behind in the shop. Because I was out of meds I did not fall asleep until 2 a.m. and the first fitting was at 8 a.m. and I had to shower so I was up at 7.a.m. I have a headache and I am sleepy. One of the bridesmaid dresses still does not fit in the shoulders and I have to redo it. &&^%$#. So today no cleaning. But I will go run those errands. I also started the laundry which I can do while I sew.
Out My Window: We are giving away one of our chickens and our rooster. It is beautiful and perfect today. I hope to get sewing done and get some time in the yard this evening.
Have a great and productive day!
