Cabinet Clean out…

I cleaned my cabinets in the kitchen last week. That was an easy one πŸ™‚ I don`t haveΒ many and little inside them. Clean and Simple. Only the stuff I use regularly and that works for me.

Instead I spent yesterday evening struggling with my tablecloths. Not for the first time…

I had the same issue in 2009. Happy to see that only two of those are still with me.

I do find it hard to let go of things given to me by my mother or grandmother even if I know that I will never use it and I am 100% sure that no one will want them after I am gone…

I should follow my own advice and add a note to those I keep because I am third generation owning themΒ  – how else can the fourth generation know why I kept them. I am so good giving others advice about things like this πŸ™‚ And I need to find a way to store them so that they don`t keep popping up every other year.

So much easier with the crocheting I make myself…

When in need to clean – make a new one. That works too.

There is stuff I have owned for 40 years and never used so I guess it is time to let go…

(But not all because I do have an empty drawer in the kitchen maybe the availability will push me to use them…)

Todays challenge will be perfect for me – Plan a get together. It is perfect because I am working a twelve hours shift today so doing nothing at the end of the day will be good πŸ™‚

A get together – I don`t think so. This is not my favorite and I doubt this place will be happy to have guests in January…

But I will be happy to dine alone after work…

…testing fresh soup with organic vegetables. Looking forward to this.

Most of all I wanted to do nothing last night…

32331863765_3a352e4e15_b

…just thinking of everything else I would rather do. But then I was considering waking up to this Monday morning…

32211919441_e497b03e93_b

…and I pulled myself together and moved most of my shit out of the house and the rest in to storage…

I have to admit that sometimes it is hard to let go of stuff…

January Cure 2017|#Sunday

I was at work yesterday. Good to be on the inside looking out…

31480151514_0ede0c1f3b_b

Today I can hear the kids screaming with joy in the hill next door. Too bad we will move on to seven days with wind and rain.

After work I added one more batch of boxes to clean out…

32202082681_21c80df223_b

I think that this is it. There are a few boxes with glass and stuff but that easier to handle.

I moved the boxes belonging to my sister-in-law in to the room I finished earlier this week…

She is getting closer to move in to her new home. I doubt moving this stuff will be a priority for her but it is not that long before Christmas and I am sure she will need her Santa before then πŸ™‚

Before going to bed I moved all the books in to the living room and suddenly this room looked like a room again…

32062228642_8a67396239_b31944825290_faa2ded401_b

Now I am thinking – do I want to make this in to a guest room? Because letting those two adventures girls play house upstairs obviously wasn`t a good idea πŸ™‚ It might be a good idea to keep them under closer observation? Soon I will have to deal with teenagers. Oh my…

It was still snowing this morning but I was up and ready to work…

31510784723_a7ac4f928e_b

I don`t know when my book shelves will be moved here but being prepared is always a good thing and those books needed some organizing…

32171986222_6a6980ff11_b

All the food-books moves on to my sister-in-law. Food is not my thing πŸ™‚

And now I am worried about having enough space for all those books because there are more of them coming here with the shelves πŸ™‚

32321626435_b4616ec4d1_b

I am okay with living with this for some time. It is better to be prepared than to be told to be ready an hour or two in advance. My brother is a fast mover when he finally moves πŸ™‚ and he is the one with the “key” to all this moving back and forth.

Now lunch – then some cleaning up before Monday and another week filled up with work and curing…

I have no idea how I accumulate all this stuff. It`s not that long ago I purged and stored. Having the kids open every box was not helpful but who can blame them for finding those boxes intriguing πŸ™‚

Proud of the job I did Friday evening – taking five paper bags to the trash. I am sure I can let go of more of this stuff but first I will need to see how many boxes I have to store in the end. If I have storage space I am all for saving stuff.

Ready for another batch of boxes this Saturday, but firstΒ – eight hours at work πŸ™‚

A Cleaner Kitchen…

I have worked in my kitchen since the start of this cure so this weekend will be easy for me. In fact I am almost done. This is my day off work but I was up at 6am…

We only have a few hours of daylight this time of the year and with the whether we have right now that daylight is of poor quality…

But – it was just enough for me to see all the tiny spots on this shiny white kitchen…at least I hope I got them all…

I do have one drawer left to sort out and clean and the freezer.

For now I`m gona sit back and enjoy for a little while. Not so long πŸ™‚
