Moving "My Precious"
It has been in a place of honor on my kitchen counter even though I have very little counter space. But I have been baking less and less since there are just two of us (and both have to watch our sugar intake). The real truth became apparent when I didn't bake much at all over the Holidays.
So one of my organizing projects for January was to do some switching around in the kitchen. It meant a few canisters had to be moved to the garage pantry shelves but otherwise the change was easier than I expected.
The Professional size mixer along with the blender were moved to the refurbished sewing machine table which used to hold canisters and a few other items.
Ummm... you know one cooks a lot with onions when they deserve their own space... but I digress.
The kitchen counter now has about twice as much work space. My husband was delighted except he moved the knives to the right of the Keurig. Fine with me... I am very pleased with the change, too. Even if it is further evidence of an empty nest.
Oh, it wasn't until I enlarged the above picture that I realized there was a flash of fur in the background. That deck table was moved into the family room to make space for the pipe repairs in the garage. It became Victoria's favorite place to look outside when it is too cold to open a window in my study.... so we left it there. Is she spoiled or what? ;)
