I have a full day today. It began at 5:00 a.m. with my first cup of coffee then on to my emails and answering comments on my blogs. The Flylady Zone this week is the Kitchen and boy do I have my work cut out for me 😦
I have errands to run….go to Michaels for more Glossy Accents to work on more of the big project I have going on at my OTHER BLOG – Message In A Fold. Joe and I have some errands to run that are work related also.
FIRST I have to tackle that deplorable counter. My 15 minutes today is dedicated to this nasty bit of business.
You probably remember this fright from a previous post I did in search of my can opener.
I got cracking on this mess and I did find homes for everything that didn’t need to be on this counter. Some went in the trash, other items went in the pantry (that is another mess for another day), some went through the shredder, and other items were taken to my craft room where they belonged.
I took a few extra minutes to give a good wipe to the upper and lower cabinets since I had the cleaning rag in my hand.
Now that the counter is clear of clutter, my next dilemma was leave the can opener on the counter or stash it away somewhere. I had to ask this question of myself. How often does it get used? Answer. Not very often. I don’t cook much from a can so having the can opener on the counter is not necessary. Next question. Where do I put it. Aha!
I’ll put it in the cupboards just above the stove. My reasoning is that it will be close at hand when I do need it and I don’t use that cupboard space anyway because it is hard to reach stuff in their without a step stool.
Upon opening the doors…look what I found. The spare pitcher I’ve been hunting for. I knew I had bought one several years ago….or at least I thought I had bought one.
I am counting on you guys to jog my memory when I next ask the question “Where is my can opener?”
