I feel good about Saturday. Regular chores were done, and also three extra jobs. I put up a hanging pole in the basement to assist with clothes drying (no photo), sorted through a closet (though much of what was in there is now just in piles that still need to be dealt with), and Lloyd tackled the kitchen cupboards. He sorted and tossed, while I stood around shuffling the boxes and cans back and forth, looking like I was helping but really not.

Now it looks like we don't have any food.

How was your Saturday?

    Your cabinets look so nice. I should do a clean out like that. My problem is that I buy stuff for recipes, but then I don’t use it again. What do you do with half a box of bread crumbs? Stir them into your coffee?

      Exactly. Lloyd did a weird thing this time. Instead of saying, “Why do we have Junket? What is this for?” and then rolling his eyes when I say, “It’s to make cheese from scratch,” he didn’t bat an eye. I would have expected him to make fun of me and throw it out. Instead, he made a box of ‘Weird Stuff I Don’t Understand But I’d Better Not Throw It Out Or She’ll Just Buy It Again’.

      I was so impressed.

        A box of Weird Stuff is genius! I think I may have to make one of those myself. Great job you two!

        Yesterday I took my dog to the vet, got a Christmas tree, did some Christmas shopping & went to see the Christmas lights in a part of Balto. City. I started decorating my house too, so it’s a disaster right now. Total opposite of yours!
