Alice and I have decided the “O” word is a swear word. And we are wondering what on earth possessed us to choose the “O” word as our “word” for the year. I am sure we will never make that mistake again. We are now into August and I think it has taken me that long to get “O”rganized to get “O”rganized!
So, yesterday and today I pottered around in the kitchen, organizing the Tupperware. You know how big a job that is? Still, I am pleased that I finally took the time to do something that I have been putting off for 18 months now – filling the Tupperware spice containers:
Notice the cuppa in the middle of the mess to keep me motivated? I was clever and didn’t spill any spices in it 🙂
I had some labels already on the containers, others I had to add a label:
My handwriting is not neat and the stickers aren’t on straight, BUT I know what is in them now 🙂 When they were all full, off they went into the cupboard, which is actually a bit too small but it will have to do:
I also tackled this disaster area which had all my big Tupperware containers:
When you are doing nothing else in the kitchen, the Tupperware looks nice there and is very handy for when you are baking, etc. However, I don’t have a lot of bench space so often all sorts of junk will get dumped by everyone in front of my containers which makes it messy and hard to get at. So I cleared out a cupboard in my pantry room and put it all in there instead:
Much better I think. And the bench top now:
Also much better.
Finally the rest of the Tupperware in the cupboard:
You know what Tupperware cupboards usually look like… well I am sure mine will be back in its old state of confusion, but for now it is tidy 🙂 I just need to keep everyone out of the kitchen… and how realistic is that?!
I have had a few minutes in the sewing room in the last few days… although the kids have also partly taken over with their Graphic Arts for school – the nerve!
Oh well… move that drawing board over for my almost finished Scrappy Stars (hosted by Terry):
Hopefully I’ll get a chance to sew the pieces together tomorrow.
On the stitching front I’ve finished two of the Village blocks:
On the whole I think it’s been a pretty productive week so far 🙂 Off to see what everyone else has been up to,
