Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I don’t suppose, taking a nap, and using a whole box of lotion coated tissues counts as a tackle, does it? Too bad. That’s all I feel up to right now. stupid cold…. And I can’t even complain! When the kids had it I was heard to say several times…”It’s only a cold… You will be fine!” so…yeah….I can’t complain, or they are going to start using my own words against me!

Ok, on with the real tackle. I was going to make an apron today. that I have been wanting to do for like a month now. But I don’t think I’m up to that today. I think I will go with the spices in the kitchen that have been bugging me lately. The current arrangement is just not working. So I’ll be back later with before and after pics. Not sure when, as Melissa has a dr’s appt at 11.

Off to look up the recipe for saline nose drops……

When we rearranged the kitchen cabinets, as in moved the actual cabinets around in the kitchen, we ended up with a small cabinet with no door. This is where the cabinets went out over the counter seperating the kitchen from the dining room. I made a curtain to go over it. And have been using it as a spice cabinet. I had on of those plastic coated wire spice racks, that elevated the back rows so you could see them better. But since the opening was so small, it was hard to get to the spices in the back or side. I had to take everything out to find something. See…

So I decided to take the drawer that’s under this cabinet, which is next to the stove as the spice drawer. It had pot holders, candles, and an empty drawer organizer in it. yeah, lol the organizer was empty. lol It used to hold utensils, until I put them on the counter in a glass jar. the drawer before…

And the drawer after…

These are the cooking spices. The baking spices are in another cabinet. I did put some of the larger utensils back in the drawer. Because I had too many on the counter! I also put some hooks on the inside of the lower cabinet doors, and hung up the potholders.
So now I’m all ready to cook! maybe I will, maybe I won’t. haha I just might have the girls cook the chicken and taters tonight! sounds like a plan to me!

    Oh ((((HUGS)))) for get the tackle today, rest girl that’s what you need most! Tackling it will wait till next week!!!

    Be blessed

  4. I hope you feel better soon:( Great job on the tackle though – I would never have thought to put spices in a drawer, that’s a great solution! I have a similar problem and this would be the perfect fix.

  5. My mom uses a spice drawer and it works perfectly for her. I hope you love it too. I wanted to do a spice drawer, but we have too many “junk drawers” and not enough practical space to put stuff in.

    And when you were sick!!! Good for you girl.

    I am all stuffed up myself – but it isn’t a really bad cold like yours. Just enough to bug me and make me really tired.

  7. Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I am feeling better today. Not 100%, but better. And that’s a good thing!

    It was only a small tackle, therefore I didn’t expend that much energy! But at least I did something yesterday!

    I think the spice drawer will work out well. The only cooking I did yesterday was helping Hannah make lunch. And I did use spices out of the drawer. :)
