I’m going through my kitchen and figuring out what to keep and what must go and what I need to get. Yeah, there are some things I need. Mollie’s doing the same thing, so we’re swapping ideas which is always tricky for us because we are complete opposites. But there are some things we agree on, like tossing worn out cookie sheets (those things get used for everything) in favor of new, insulated ones, and–this one was surprising–heavy duty #20 cookie scoops. And of course some things we probably wouldn’t agree on, like the cherry measuring spoons I needed because my measuring spoons have had it and because they”ll look so great hanging on the edge of my shelves.
Everything else, however, must go unless it is useful, beautiful, in good shape, and essential to my wellbeing. Or on a really high shelf where it’s not going to get in my way. There are some things like my NYC taxi and Betty Boop cookie jars that stay. (My three-foot tall Betty Boop statue, however, is in the garage.)
So how did your work week go? I got my lavender planted, so that was something.
