Good Morning! It's a balmy 18 degrees, sunny...
...and T Stands For TaDa for me today over at T-Tuesday!
Yes! I finished in the kitchen!! :) :)
My stuff came from Bed, Bath and Beyond--
the drawer dividers...
...the giant Pyrex 8-cups with lids
(am hoping for excellent soup storage)...
...another set of Pyrex glass food storage containers...
...and a wire portable shelf.
Karma loved the packaging, of course. She is sleeping underneath and inside that pile--trust me!
I forgot to take a before picture of my messiest cabinet, but here's the after. TaDa!!! (All the blue Pyrex lids are in a box in the pantry, BTW--where they are easier for me to grab and sort through the sizes.)
These two give-away bags are posthumous proof of how truly crowded and chaotic it was!
I did remember to get a before picture on the drawers. The left one is kitchen stuff and the right one is the junk drawer.
Here they are cleaned.
I know it's hard to tell--LOL! They are still jam packed...but they are so darn small! Only 9 inches wide! Everything is so small here. I will still have to carefully layer things on the right back sides of both drawers because everything fits in those spots like a jig saw puzzle--but at least things can't slide around anymore, are organized by type, and I know where everything is now. Dagan and Leah will likely be able to find things a lot easier, too. ;)
Oh, and when they were here last Dagan asked me (with a giggle) as soon as he saw the old metal cup in the middle of the carpet--I thought you were only going to use her treat ball from now on...no food dishes in the living room?
Well...I found the old metal cup when I was cleaning the kitchen and couldn't resist. I knew she'd find it interesting...just put a little bit in there...
Dagan just laughed.
I'm not going to keep it there long.
It's that time of year for Karma---will be cold for the next six months, at least. Less floor sprawling (only on sun beam mornings) and more cat bed snuggling.
Me, I am set to journal and then work on a letter this morning--with my trusty, dented thermal coffee mug. Plan to do some lingering cupboard and drawer gazing...several times...with a contented smile.
I'm due to make some machine bread and some soup. Just love fresh bread and soup this frosty time of year. So, we'll see if the leg and back are feeling cooperative today. (Did laundry yesterday, too.) If not, it will smell and taste just as good tomorrow. :)
Now I can get back to something more creative for a while! I think I hear my little art table calling to me. Wait! I also hear my craft table pining for some book binding. And inside my head I am hearing Christmas carols and...you'd better work on those Christmas cards! Goodness! I shall have to pick something soon, I guess. ;)
I hope you are feeling as satisfied today as moi. Have a good one! :):)
