This cold is hanging around like a bad smell!

All that is really wrong with me now is a small cold, ears which are full and feeling awful tired and fuzzy headed.  Anyhow, rather than going to bed and napping; as all that does is make me not sleep at night, I am keeping busy.

Called the kitchen cabinet guys and they are going to pick up the uppers and the pantry this coming Monday, so I decided the take everything out of the cabinets in preparation for dh to remove them.

This is the kitchen table before I started:
This is the kitchen table after I emptied all the cabinets.
The one good thing with all of this is I got to see what was in my cupboards and have a bit of a clear out.  However one of these days I would love to have a clear kitchen table!  Do you have somewhere in your house that is your dumping ground?

The weather turned out to be nice with a warm wind blowing on Wednesday, so I ended up cutting some grass/running over leaves.  Made sure I had my flaps down hat on to cover up my ears, but it was a gorgeous day to be outside.

I am having a running around day today (Thursday) so looking forward to having a day out of the house.

Ours tends to be the dining room table. But I have a 24 hour rule now. If its still there in 24 hours I hide it and don't tell them where it is..heheheh

You are lucky to have such a large table to put your cupboard stuff on. That's a good size kitchen, I like how there are windows on each side and the wainscotting. The dumping ground my house starts with a small pile beside my chair in the front room then starts spreading to more piles beside the others to keep them organized.

My family is "horizontal surface challenged" here....meaning every horizontal surface eventually gets covered with crap!
Hate.
It.

By next Fall though only 2 of us will be here covering all surfaces(and 1 of those will be me!lol)so maybe then I can get a handle on this affliction. lol

Go figure Jane blames Chris for the dumping ground! I have a full size sewing room. Need i say more? boy you are really getting a lot done there.

I've had that blasted bug driving me crazy since about the 23 of Sept. I picked it up in Peterborough when my Da died. As my niece the kindergarten teacher says "Peterborough is a constant cesspool of illness"....yah,.
I've been trying to sort out my cupboards too. There are WAY too many pieces of crockery cluttering up the shelves, but I know the minute I send that box off to Value Village, I'll be right back there looking for a replacement!

I don't know why it is, but since the girls left home, our dining table has gradually got till it catches everything and is hardly ever clear. I really need to get out of that habit.
