Housewifey Things

I had today off. 

This morning SM decided to head over to Fayetteville to do some business.  He'd be gone all day.

He asked me what I was going to do today.

" know.  Housewifey things."

The day was overcast with mid 40's and rain due this evening.  Not inspired to do anything outside.  So after he left, I did the usual vacuuming, bathrooms cleaning and laundry. 

When SM took off, he left the TV on.  I usually don't watch TV until the evening but as I scrolled to see what was on, I saw that BBCA had The Tudors on all day.  Hmmmm...a mini-marathon.  Royal romping and drama.  Right up my alley.

I kept my eye on the antics of Henry VIII pretty much all day.  (Love the set and the costumes.)

And ate my way through most of a half gallon of Bryers Mint Chocolate Chip.

Hormonal?  You decide.

But I did manage to get something constructive done.  I attacked the kitchen.

I think most of us periodically go through a search and destroy mission.  If I'm planning on canning and doing some "storing" up, I'd better see what I had, what should be tossed, and make room for my future yummy canned goods.

My laundry room is right off my kitchen.  There's a small pantry in there too.  I wasn't too keen on storing food above the washer and dryer so I flip flopped my pots and pans and mixers and blenders into that cabinet.

Also SM's vast collection of various alcohol.  Party at my house anyone?

End result?  I've got a lot of room to grow. 

Now we'll see if I can find anything when I need it.


  1. The Tudors are still on here! I'm teaching a granddaughter to sew and canning navy beans while I watch! I have the granddaughter in the front 1/2 of the house so she can't hear the Royal going ons!

  2. We all need a good purge now and again. Just stay away from to much of that booze or it will be the wrong kind of purge.

  3. I found a "better" place to store some things, but had to change back. After 3 years of it being in the "old" place, I couldn't find stuff when I needed it.
    Love having a good old purge once in awhile-it's amazing how the stuff builds up!

  4. Good job, Tami! I need to do some purging myself, but not in the kitchen. Our storage room needs some serious going through. I don't even know what's in there anymore!
