Hello Everybuddy!

Let me start by thanking all of you for your kind and thoughtful comments on our first post back! They all gladdened my heart after being down for a long time.

Now that I am feeling better, I have lots to do here.  Starting out with the kitchen cabinets and
here is where I wish I were highly organized  . . .but unfortunately that's not the case for me.  I think  I would need at least three clutter fairies to do what I need to do.  Did you know that a girl from Japan has written a book called How to Tidy Up (or something like that) and it is #1 on the New York Times best seller list.  That's another thing that made me happy, knowing there are SO MANY of us out there who need help.

So, today (another chilly one here in Minniesnowda) is my day in the kitchen  and I hope I can pitch about 100 pounds of junque and organize the keepers.

Wish me luck, won't you?

Cheers and hugs,

Jo, along with Stella and Zkhat who both go right back to bed after breakfast.  At least they are not underfoot!


  1. Good luck in the kitchen cleaning. Have a marvellous Monday and stay warm and safe.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. laughing at your lackluster helpers. i know that feeling with my 4 pups. good luck!

  3. Don't stay at it TOO long.... you might develop a case of winter time...CABINET Fever...

  4. I'm wondering how many of the folk who bought the 'How to Tidy Up' book did so as an excellent alternative to actually clearing out the cupboards….
    Best of luck with the kitchen Jo!
    Cheers, Gail.

  5. Have fun in the kitchen, but don't take on too much at once. Just do one cabinet or one drawer at a time and then take a break:)

    Stay warm.

  6. I'm sure that you're THRILLED that you feel good enough to take on projects like decluttering the kitchen. But, I'll echo the OP Pack - take it easy! You have as long as you want to declutter.

    Just so you know our dirty little secret - we need to read that book!!!!!!!!!

  7. Hey - Welcome back! I've been wondering what happened to you. Hope you are okay. How did the quilt project turn out of my school photo? Would love to see a photo of it.
