Beautiful sunny day yesterday!
A windows-wide-open day and Miss Karma was at her post.
Her "don't bother me" look.
I started on the other side of the pantry during the night.
Got it all emptied out.
This side was much easier to empty for me--items much lighter and smaller. Then I started cleaning and organizing and kept working sessions during the night and all morning. I got this far--TaDa!!!
I was reorganizing jars (sizes for storage of some items) and then had to clean off the remnants of old labels.
Saw a lot of this spray bottle--hehe! I'd spray and leave. Come back and scrape. Then ran the dishwasher for a couple of loads.
This was as far as I had gotten by noon.
That was all she wrote for me for the day.
I met Caroline in my robe! That has only happened a couple of times. She put all the jars up on the top shelf, scrubbed down the pantry floor, wiped down the silver garbage can, and put it back in the pantry for me. Even went down and got my mail for me. I didn't have the trash ready or anything, but she pulled out and took what was in the big silver can for me. Even put in a new bag for me. Grateful. I couldn't hardly move anymore yesterday. She's such a sweetheart! :)
I was in bed not too long after Caroline left. After I got up tonight (first time in days that I have gone to bed and woke up on a different day--hehe!) I finished up with putting the few things back on the pantry floor. Oh--Caroline had even wheeled my trusty little green cart in yesterday, too.
I still have more things to return to the pantry on these shelves, but everything looks so nice and clean--and organized! I can find everything again! Ahhh!
When you glance at the pantry--it looks just the same. You'd never know I have spent six days on it so far--hehe!
I still have to go thru everything on right side of the art table, but that's all that's left--and it can sit there for a good long while and not bother me at all--hehe! I'm done in for a while.
A lot of my old Tupperware containers can be given away. (Funny--some of these I bought when Dagan was a toddler!!) I've been getting rid of what used to be a massive amount of Tupperware little by little over the past few moves--hehe! Just going to keep a few of them. I have been using glass for leftovers lately--and glass jars for the storage of my staples, as you can tell, for decades. But the large Tupperware containers I have on the floor of the pantry--priceless! Nothing better to store flour and rice, etc. I'll probably never get rid of those large ones. :)
Dagan and Leah are going to stop by tonight. I've made it around the clock enough to stay awake, too! We're probably just going to visit more than anything. I am useless, anyways--and they know it--hehe! ;)
Speaking of useless. I'm going to go lean back in my comfy chair (Karma is sleeping between my legs) and watch Psych (from Caroline). I don't think I am going to be up to moving much at all for a few days. I am proud of myself, tho--only the one extra pain pill! Still just taking the one half pill before I go to bed. So far, anyways--been tolerating pretty well. Pride goeth before the fall, tho, and all that...don't want to be too cocky--hehe! :)
Happy Wednesday!! :):)
