Back to work

Finally, a productive day!

I attacked the pantry and kitchen today separating out the racks and putting one outside the cubby and the other in. Now I can get to all parts of the shelves. I also threw out some decade old stuff that I have no idea why I still kept. All that meant I now have all the food on one rack and my appliances and trash bags and such on the other rack.

I can get to the stove completely now instead of trying to cook from a cattywampus position. I stored some stuff I won't be using in the oven since I won't be using it much at all. I could still use it but it won't be as efficient because there is no way to shut it all the way anymore. It needs a new bracket because the left hand side one is broken. I'm not sure where I would be able to get another one, but when I have the time, I might do a search.

I also moved the island on wheels out of the kitchen and now have it right outside the kitchen with the television on it. It has storage under it so I've got some more stuff there. I moved the table I had the tv on and put a tablecloth on it so it now replaces the card table we were using for a dining table. It's not as big but is steadier. I found it in the trash many years ago when we lived in California. It used to be a drop-leaf table but the leaves were gone. Otherwise it was in good shape. So there is more room in the living/dining room/den.

Supper tonight is roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and corn. Easy to fix but a pain to clean up.

I still have much to do tonight but hopefully Ghost Whisperer and my other shows are back on again. I probably missed stuff over the holidays but reruns will take care of that.

I love getting organised and rearranging my space. Although you do have to be in the mood for it. My mum used to say "a change is as good as a holiday!!"
Hope your weather improves soon. We always think it would be great to live in a country that snows but I'm sure it can be pretty annoying as well as beautiful. Very hot and steamy in Oz today so our fans are working overtime.
Cheers Anne
