Country Kitchen II
Well, it's still Sunday here, anyway, even if it's past midnight on the east coast! ;) This was a busy week and I stayed busy till Thursday. Then I hit a brick wall. I'm adjusting to a new medicine. A little over a week ago, I increased the dosage and was doing fine . . . until Thursday. Until this morning, I had felt sick since Thursday. Today I've been better, but I've also eaten better - which goes a long way with this medication. With a settled tummy, my motivation has returned and I hope to keep up the energy this week.
I did get some work done in the kitchen. I think I mentioned in my last post that I was cleaning the oven. So my kitchen work last week was to clean the cabinet fronts, the backsplash, and the counters; the entire stove, including the oven (yay!); and the small appliances and canisters. I threw the round carousel I keep utensils in into the dishwasher one day too. So the kitchen looks pretty good, even though I didn't get everything on my list done.
This week is the main bathroom and one other room; for me that's the upstairs landing and hallway.
I've been reading a book recommended by Debbie from Homemaking Dreams. She has been reading Don Aslett's How to Have a 48-Hour Day and talking about it on her blog. I ordered it from my library and have been really enjoying it. The gist of it is . . . work. Stay busy. No amount of thinking and talking about getting things done will get things done. It's very motivating. If you can find it somewhere, it's a good, helpful read. I will never have the energy Mr. Aslett has, but his energy motivates me. Thanks, Debbie, for introducing me to it!
