Sorting

A nice moment of total control in this uncertain world
No covid
Blogger playing up
No rules
No work
No people with their mouths open like naked baby birds 
It’s Raining hard outside
And I am ordering my kitchen cabinets 
One by one

Bliss

  6. Feels good to have things organized, doesn't it! I just did all my CDs and DVDs. For a brief shining moment, everything is in its proper place!

  7. Last time I saw a picture of your kitchen it looked perfect so why the hell are you ordering new cabinets? You must have money to burn!

  8. I read it as John was ordering the inside of the cabinets, mind you my first thought was the same as yours YP.

  9. YP ......Ordering = To Put in order.

    Although blog posts showing the insides of peoples cupboards leave me cold.

    YP Cold = uninterested

    1. Thanks for the language lesson Sue. I admit I am a bit thick.

      Delete
    2. "Thick" as in "wide"? :)?

    3. Not me. I love seeing what's in people's cupboards. Also what's in their fridges, and what's stuck to their fridges with magnets. -Kate

    4. Apologies sue, it does sound incredibly boring
      But I never claimed to be interesting 24/7

    5. I LOVE seeing the inside of peoples cupboards.

      It's like walking along the road at dusk when people have their house lights on but their curtains still open, and you can surreptitiously peep inside as you pass.

      Snippets of other lives are fascinating.

  11. organization is such a wonderful thing. if i could only make myself do it more often. i wish we had your rain. this has been the driest 5 months in history.

  12. I wouldn't mind a nice hard afternoon rain.

  13. You could hire yourself out on your days off John - all looks spick and span - any money earned would go towards Scotch Eggs galore.

  14. A bit of organising makes a lot of things feel better, and makes coping possible!

    2. It makes things easier GZ
      I WASTE SO MUCH TIME searching for stuff ....

  15. And there is only you to mess it up, switch it up, or keep it just as is. True bliss, indeed.

    What a perfect and satisfying day plan for a very rainy day! Do you have music playing or are you just listening to the sounds of rain and snoozing dogs? I assume that Albert is a very quiet sleeper but I could be mistaken.

    Hugs!

  17. I had to enlarge the picture to see what those cans were. Of course, pet food.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Nice day of contentment.

  19. I love the rain and the dogs seem to enjoy snoozing after their busy morning.I don't feel lazy that I should be outside gardening as it's raining here too but refuse to look inside my cupboards-check and recheck your measurements John-it would be very irritating to get it wrong x

  20. Such a satisfying feeling when everything is in order!

    1. It is......I found lots of “ lost” stuff
      Re stocked the emergency cupboard, and everything is neat! How satisfying

  21. I read it as buying/ ordering new cabinets too, then realised John meant organizing. Odd language blip. I wonder who the naked baby bird folks are---his hospice clients? Sad. Anyway the neat shelves would give me the heebie jeebies, I'm glad I have quilting and blogging and walking to do instead.

    2. Possibly-In the kitchen Dusting ready for the new cabinets and whilst John is measuring he can't catch the ruler in the drawstring waist of his joggers or bib of his newly aquired dungarees x

  23. One of the best things about morning on a day off is doing exactly what one pleases. I'm having a slow one, myself. Past 11 and still in my housecoat. Tsk. (Not really. Who's the boss of me? ME!). Love to you. -Kate

    1. The last room in the cottage to sort out

  25. New kitchen cabinets? How wonderful! That is on my list to do but I have to be able to handle the cost first. Always an issue. I will live vicariously through your new cabinets!

    1. Oops, I think I misunderstood? You already have new cabinets don't you and you are organizing them? Well that can be fun too!

    2. Three in bags of out of date food , unwanted dishes, rubbish and the like, my work is done!

  26. Organizing kitchen cabinets is a job well done. The surprise finds and out of date items fill the trash bucket quickly. A fresh start, with newly realized space, will be good.

  27. If it is a deep cupboard, you can buy the shelves as pull outs. We did.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds like a blissful, satisfying day. I have a kitchen cupboard to empty and reorganize. Waiting for a rainy day.

  29. My granddaughter did this for me in a fit of Pandemic Lock Down Boredom and my Pantry and Cupboards look fabulous now and I can find everything and am careful not to mess up her organization!
