All month long I put off cleaning out these two drawers in the kitchen because I was sure it would take forever. Funny, since these drawers were part of the inspiration for participating in this month.
I first cleaned and organized these drawers during the first William Morris Project two years ago. I haven’t cleaned them since, and two things have happened since then. One: life. Cooking and stuff. Two: Mikey and Nico now prepare their own snacks. Not all the time, but often enough for the drawers to see some abuse. I don’t say anything, though, because it’s a great help to me and they love preparing their snacks. They feel so mature and so important, especially when I ask them to make me something, too. I limit my requests to when I’m feeling strong of stomach or sure of the outcome. One time Mikey made a celery and cheddar salad. My God.
I don’t think this took me 10 minutes. I didn’t have to throw anything away. It was just a matter of placing things where they belong. Some things are in the dishwasher (like the rest of my measuring cups) but there wasn’t anything there that I don’t use or shouldn’t be there. It was a great way to end this series.
BECAUSE THIS SERIES IS OVER.
They were simple and easy little things, but I’m still glad to be done. Thanks for taking the ride along with me again this year. I need to now catch up on book club, a few posts I’ve been dying to write, and other general nonsense.
