I have been MIA from the Buzz a lot lately. I miss all of you.
As we prepare to move, I have been busy - packing, sorting and getting rid of 'stuff'. We are only moving about 1/2 a mile away. That however makes no difference when it comes to packing and sorting.
Our new house is one story and about half the size of this house.
Logic says - only half the stuff will fit.
I have trouble wrapping my head around this fact.
Yesterday was my last day cooking for clients for a while - I need to take a break to get settled into my new kitchen. While I am looking forward to getting acquainted with my new oven - it is hard to say good-bye to
my old turf.
What a mixed bag of emotion this is.
One of the major benefits to all this was organizing & culling through my pantry staples.
I gave away some things and organized and labeled the rest.
I plan to load the tubs into the my car.
Drive them over to the new house and straight into the pantry.
The spices revealed 3 jars of celery salt and numerous other duplicates.
At least now I know exactly what I have.
Ready or not - here we go.
Wish me luck!
I will be back once the dust settles.
Saturday October 1st.
A Little update.
This is the front of our new home.
What a surprise to arrive today - after talking to the tenant and he assured us he would be out and the house cleaned and ready to go Oct. 1st.
There was a car in the driveway - hmmm - but nobody was home.
So we let ourselves in and ......
They still have stuff all over the house!
This is standing in the breakfast nook looking toward the front door.
The dining room is the room to the front left.
The Living room is to your right. (can't see it in this pic.)
My second big surprise was the size of the refrigerator opening!
The width is not quite 3 ft but the depth is only 24 inches.
My refrigerator is too big for this spot -
A partial view of what will be my kitchen & pantry.
Once they get their stuff out!
So much for using this week to set up shop in my new kitchen!
We are changing the locks Monday morning at 10 AM -
I hope they have their act in gear by then.
Update: Tuesday October 4th
What a BIG 12 hour day.
My cookbooks have a new home.
Looks like I have room for a few more!
My Mixers seem to like their new home.
I kicked a$$ today - all the spices are in place, most of the glasses.
I can't even begin to tell you all that we got done. :)
Come Monday morning - just 6 days - all the movers will have to do is move the heavy stuff & the furniture.
I hope it all fits. :)
