The Next Set Of Dishes

Leave a comment

I took a break from the software project this week to focus on some other projects. However, I did end up helping my dad with the next step of his clutter organizing involving our dish and cookware. My mom collected a whole lot of this stuff because she liked to cook. Unfortunately, between returning to work (partly to get out of the house since I was old enough to survive for a few hours) and getting sick she didn’t have the time to bake anymore, and her getting diabetes reduced what she could have anyway. While she did still bake, usually with my dad’s help near the end, there were a lot of stuff in the lower cabinets that hadn’t been used in years, and even some that I don’t remember ever seeing in use. So we went through it and reduced more of our clutter to just what we’d actually use.

Doing The Dishes…Cabinet

Leave a comment

This week’s project is dusting and that’s hardly interesting. However, I did so something with my dad last week while filing the book report. We used to have parties and people coming over. We weren’t party central or anything but we did celebrated birthdays and some other holidays. If not here, then we went other places and some of this week’s clutter would be used for that. Or would have been if most of what was up there was anything we used.

You know how you get plates as presents for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or Christmas that you don’t use? We had a big collection of that. Some plates were also bought thinking we’d use them and maybe we did for some gathering but there were more plates than three people, sadly now two, would ever dirty even on Thanksgiving. So last week we decided it was time to start making room in the cabinets.
