'Tis the Season for...
...cleaning cupboards??? I haven't done this since the last time we remodeled and moved the kitchen (had 3 different kitchens in 3 different locations of the same house over a 45 year period). What is this madness? I need the space.
Yesterday I found a little 4-cup coffee maker... actually makes 2 mugs of coffee - just my limit and addiction first thing every morning. I forgot we even had this little thing. I put away the big one until next time we have a family gathering.
If you know me you know the husband & I traditionally left town the last weekend of April when the Walleye Festival takes place and - more important - a giant rummage sale! Traffic jams all along our two lane road because of cars parked alongside the road - yes there are that many rummage sales!
I've never done rummage sales - from either end. Husband was a junk collector - never got rid of anything and even salvaged a few things from friends and family (when I wasn't looking) that he thought he could 'fix' - whether he could use it or not.
This year I will have a rummage sale during Walleye Festival! It will take me that long to clean out 49 and 11/12 years of collecting! I'm motivated to get this done... every time I want to combat this new loneliness of mine I get busy!
Today I'm feeling ... oh yes and guess what??? I found the big serving tray with cutting board that I couldn't find on Thanksgiving!!! Yeay for cleanin' out the cupboards!!!
