This is a trying time. Trying to get things back to normal. Trying to get my kitchen and pantry reorganized. Nothing seems to be where it should be. Various containers are stacked any which way and the shelves where they belong are full of other things and I don’t recall exactly why I put them there instead of where they belong. It must have made sense at the time but at present it just seems to be a jumble.
I know all this stuff fit on the shelves neatly before I began pulling out containers of ingredients. I haven’t added any new containers so they all ought to fit comfortably on the shelves but for the past few days I have just been staring at them, on my forays into the pantry, and wondering how I am going to get everything reorganized where there seems to be no empty spaces.
This is the way the pantry looks at present:
All those containers stacked on the floor belong in those shelves behind them. They came out of there and have to go back. Otherwise I will never be able to find anything.
At least the cart that transports the mixers still has a place to fit although one of the rollers has caught on something on the floor – I hate cork flooring!
The other cart holds my extra oven (also another mixer that usually sits on the other cart but it is easier to move without that extra weight.
I know that I am procrastinating and everything will get done once I actually begin work on it but I am being rather lazy at the moment. A bit of a let down following the holidays and all the activities of baking and etc.
We had snow night before last, 4 to 5 inches in my yard but almost all of it was gone by the end of the day yesterday. I still have a few patches on the north side of the house where the sun doesn’t reach but that should be gone tomorrow when it warms up a bit more.
There were the usual problems on the Grapevine and in the Cajon pass, as well as on the 14, but not as bad as it was a couple of years ago and certainly not as bad as we had the El Niño year when the roads were closed for a couple of days.
I know people from back east and up north think we are strange for having so much trouble with such a small amount of snow but when people are not used to those driving conditions, it can be scary, and dangerous.
Aston did some exploring in the snow – gingerly.
He shows what he thinks about this stuff.
And after we came back inside and he had his feet warm and dry.
