Is this the end of the Kitchen? - Housework / Funwork 9



YES, (almost) thank goodness!


The Overhaul List for the Kitchen is almost all checked off.


The Inventory of the Kitchen is completed.

And you can all guess what was deserved at the end of all that.

                                   Yes it was
 once again


So the outcome of this month in the Kitchen is:


The drawers are all done. 
(including the "Man Drawer" which was done very quickly after the blog was posted last Friday
 - it's amazing what a blog post can accomplish!)


The cupboards are all done. 

The dishwasher is done.

The fridge is done and the freezer is done.




The last thing I did was the KITCHEN To Do List  -  all the things I thought of that needed to be repaired etc.   It was not too long a list and I used my POCKET LIST iPad app for that as usual.



Needed my glasses for this job and of course all the inventory work



However
The floor, windows, tiles,  
oven & hob and all the woodwork of the doors etc. 
                                                                              are NOT done.





So what else happened along the way?


Well here is the proof of Fred's hard work on one, just one single drawer  (compared to the other 9 which I did plus all the rest of the kitchen), yes here is the tidied 

 "Man Drawer"




He had been provided with the 3 containers previously to try to help keep some order in the drawer but it is nice to be able to see them clearly & what's in them now.


I must acknowledge that he did come and help me out with other little things along the way.
(He is tall so very handy for reaching up to the higher things whereas I am petite)


This is the before and after of my built in corner fridge 
(you can imagine how this was a wow feature along with the size of the kitchen) that made us want to buy this house.

We always have quite a few bottles of water, flavoured water, non alcoholic Muscat from Asda along with some fanta and sprite and when Fred lifted all of these out from the bottom of the fridge it really was very dirty but not for long as I got the steamer out and cleaned it.
Then each of the shelves got cleaned and sorted and everything put back in.

It is rather bare looking now however the next shopping will soon fill it up again, although I must say that it is too big for the two of us but we love how big it is when it comes to having special events.



This is the before and after of my Baking Cupboard 
(which I have always had difficulty keeping tidy)

I previously had large round containers for my floor, castor sugar and icing sugar but fell in love with Lock & Lock containers over a year ago and bought several sizes of them so had changed to the ones I have here and now that I have cleaned and sorted the cupboard they definitely fit in better.

I added a metal expanding shelf which I bought from Lakeland.  (I have two more of these waiting to be used elsewhere.)  They just help to make more use of the height.



When we decided to buy the house 3 years ago one of the first things I told Fred was that we were going to have a designated Tea & Coffee area  (yes, I know what possessed me to marry a tea drinker?).

I had spotted the corner beside the door to the Utility room while viewing the house and knew that the two cupboards above would be ideal, one for teas, coffees, sugars (yes we both take sugar), coffee filters, etc. and the other for biscuits (and yes we love chocolate biscuits). 


So that corner seemed perfect for the large coffee filter machine, the toaster, the kettle, the granite chopping board & the kitchen roll.  Then I got a metal Lazy Susan for the tea, coffee etc. that we would keep out on the worktop.
We love that corner and are happy that we started like that and still have it set up that way so I definitely had no intention of changing anything here.



NOW the big question is


Did I manage to cut down on "STUFF" and did I just move things to other rooms 
or did I THROW some things OUT?

I did 3 things
  1. Made a pile for going to the car boot sale to support the work our church does in Zimbabwe.
  2. Threw a few things out.
  3. Moved some things to the Dining Room and Utility Room (just don't ask me if I had space for these things in these two rooms please!)




Conclusion

I'm not perfect                                                             but I don't think I'm quite                                                                 


I think that I might be more like

Please do!

Who's the Bestest Boy in the World? - A Dose of Encouragement 9



Okay!  I know there is no such word as "bestest". 

 I even knew that before my spell checker 
told me so.



We have 2 boys and a girl in that order.


JONATHAN  was born 5 years after we married and was named for Jonathan in the Bible because we felt God telling us to do this as Jonathan had been the right friend for David.

DANIEL was born 2 years later (well just 2 weeks short of 2 years) and was named for Daniel in the Bible because we felt God telling us to do this on the morning shortly before he arrived.

LINDA was born 3 years and 3 months later and was not named for anyone at all, we simply only felt led to this one girl's name.



JONATHAN  means  GIFT of GOD

DANIEL  means  GOD is my JUDGE

LINDA  means  BEAUTIFUL


You could not imagine the number of times Linda has said  


"How come the boys got Bible names and I didn't?"  

but more often than that she has been happy with her name and what it means.  


When Jonathan was still a small baby I started to say  


"Who's the bestest boy in the world" 

and lift up his two arms above his head and say 


"Jonathan is"

It always got a smile from him and soon he was able to lift his hands by himself as soon as he would hear me say the familiar phrase.

So when Daniel was born we did exactly the same thing with him and got the same reaction of 


"Daniel is"

while Jonathan would shout 


"me too"

and eventually we had two small boys running around reacting to the phrase together. 


 Never really with any queries about how the two of them 
could both be the best.

Then when Linda arrived, we naturally had to make a slight change and say 


"Who's the bestest Girl in the World".

It was simply a little "in phrase" that was special to the five of us.

But at the same time it was something that I sort of secretly hoped would show them how much we believed in them and inspire them to believe that they were of great worth.
       
Did it work?

    Well one thing I have always been so happy about in our family is that there was never any competition between the children, they all accepted that we thought they were all the bestest in the world and they seemed to have thought that about each other too.  They are each proud and supportive of what the others have done in the past and are doing at present.

    All three are unique individuals with some very similar interests but also some very different interests and always have been.  

Jonathan is a Pastor, also working on his Phd in Theology and lives in Leeds in England at present.
Daniel is the manager of a Church/Charity based Cafe and the Sound Engineer in his church.  He is now married and living in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Linda is an aspiring writer, has written a novel (unpublished) and working on a novella but also teaching English as a foreign language in Gangneung, South Korea at the moment.

All three of them are saved, love worship music and play the guitar, as do Fred and I but it has to be admitted that the 3 guys are better on the guitar than us girls.
All three of them love babies; I know most people do but they go to the extent of having to take many pics & videos of their cousin's little boy and share them with us all.

Were we telling them the truth when we used that phrase with them for years?


Strictly speaking - possibly no!



But to us parents, YES.  

We thought of each of them as being the best because we loved each of them the same.


They were good children but probably not the best children in the whole world.
And also who are we to judge who is better than anyone else.
But this phrase meant a lot to us and to them and I do believe that it made them feel loved and happy and accepted and contented all those years ago.


At the Grand Canyon while we were living in the US over 20 years ago



Of course that phrase is not the only thing that would have led them to grow up with love and acceptance but then there are always a lot of factors in the formation of anything.


All I know is we loved them greatly and they knew they were loved and they loved us and each other.  Then later they grew to know about God and the salvation he has offered us through His Son Jesus and they each acknowledged that they needed to ask God's forgiveness and accept this gift from God.


Who inspires you?

I would like to think that if our children had been asked this question when they were young they would have included Fred & I in the answer.

If you ask me that same question today my answer would have to be, my 3 children Jonathan, Daniel & Linda for the people they have turned out to be, not dependent on us, not intimidated by others and taking a stand for God. 

What more could parents want in the lives of their children?

I am thankful to God for the husband and children He has given me.

The Trial of Dr Kate - Book Review



I would like to state here that although I did receive a free copy of the ebook this review is completely my own opinion of the book and was not written to any deadline for the publishers.




SYNOPSIS:
A doctor who can’t remember her crime. 
A reporter fighting for the story of her life. 
Two women at a crossroads in a town that never forgets. 

In the summer of 1952, Lillian Johnson was found dead in her home, slumped in the wheelchair that had become her cage due to multiple sclerosis. An overdose of barbiturate had triggered a heart attack, but the scene was not quite right. It looked as though someone other than Lillian herself had injected the fatal dose. 

Dr. Kate Marlow, Lillian’s physician and best friend, now sits in the Round Rock city jail. The only country doctor for miles, Kate cannot remember her whereabouts at the time of Lillian’s death and the small Tennessee town buzzes with judgment. 

As Dr. Kate’s trial approaches, another woman is determined to uncover the truth about the night of Lillian’s death. Memphis reporter Shenandoah Coleman grew up in Round Rock on the wrong side of the tracks, but unlike the rest of her unsavory clan, escaped her destiny. Now, back in the town she grew up in, she’ll have to turn every stone to keep Kate from a guilty verdict. 
The Trial of Dr. Kate is the second novel in a four-part series from Michael E. Glasscock III that explores the intricate social cloth of Round Rock, Tennessee. Though each story stands alone, readers who enjoyed Glasscock’s first Round Rock tale, Little Joe, will delight in the cameo appearances in this one. 






Having read the first book in this series and reviewed it on this blog, I was looking forward to the opportunity of reading this second one and thankful for the ebook copy received from the publishers to be able to read and review it; but unfortunately did not find it to be as interesting or as captivating.

The characters were not as well developed and although there were relationships being formed throughout the novel this book did not seem to be as full of story and life as it's predecessor.  Cameo appearances were mentioned in the synopsis but I can only remember one.  As for the reporter "fighting for the story of her life"; well we hardly hear of her writing the story and things are really made very easy for her to gain access to everyone in the town for info on her story of the trial and very little mention is made of the other story she is writing.

Having received the book free I did finish it but there were several breaks away from it.  The ending was disappointing as it seemed to be rushed and then the added epilogue gave the impression that the author had felt that whole thing needed some closure.  

I actually was not that interested in what would have happened to the characters after the book ended because of not having felt the closeness to the characters that I had in the first story.

I would love to know if you agreed or disagreed with my view of this one.

Why We Worship 8






I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"


 This week  Malachi 3 v 6  brings us the reason to focus on
                  






This means that God is UNCHANGING



He never changes in His being (who He is) or in the promises He makes.

We can change from year to year or from day to day but God does not.


This gives us great stability and we know that we can depend on Him 
at all times 
and 
       in all circumstances.    


 I am thankful that I serve an unchanging God, are you?

How long can you be Happy? #100HappyDays Week 1


This week, on Tuesday, my niece and my daughter both decided to do the





CHALLENGE




When I saw this I immediately thought of an incident on Sunday evening coming home from church and how that could have changed our lives forever. But by God's Grace it was something we were very thankful and happy about.


        On Sunday evening we were driving home on the same road on which we travel twice every Sunday to go from our home in Banbridge to the church we attend in Lurgan. The drive takes 20/25 mins depending on traffice but on Sunday evenings there is normally very little traffic on that road.


        One part of the road has a few quite significant dips so that as you drive up towards one of these you have no real view ahead and the road is clearly signed to tell drivers about this in advance. So as we drove along in the dark around 8.30pm and came to the slight brow of a hill before one of these dips we suddenly saw several lights of cars coming towards us but as well as this we saw a set of lights coming towards us on our side of the road.


       This is a country road with a very narrow footpath and hedges or walls etc. so usually no room to manoeuvre. A large lorry (truck for my American friends) was trying to overtake 3 or 4 cars and was still on the wrong side of the road; he had obviously ignored the signs about the dips in the road and also the road markings which clearly showed that no overtaking was allowed on that stretch of road.


        The only thing my husband Fred could do was to swerve in to the side of the road as the lorry tried to cut back into his proper side in front of the lead car. Up until then there had been no break in the narrow footpath but at the exact place that we had to cut in there was a gap in the footpath and in the hedge because there was an entrance to something there.

Just enough room for our car to get in out of the way as the lorry skimmed past us.


Obviously God had brought us to the right spot at the right time and saved our lives.




This was a big thing in our lives that day that caused us to be happy about the outcome, but it also makes me think of the other smaller things everyday that we sometimes forget to be happy about.

This event was to do with us being thankful to God because of his hand of protection but so many other times we forget to be thankful for the things that make us happy so I thought I would join in on this challenge to recognize something each day which made me happy and not stop there but to thank God for that thing He has provided in my life.




 The Challenge

is to take a picture of something that makes you happy each day for 100 days and post it on facebook or twitter or google plus, etc. 

I have chosen to put it on Facebook each day but also each Saturday I will do an update for the week on my blog.



1. TUESDAY

I was happy that one of my blog posts was featured in the Tuesdays with a Twist Blog Hop


2. WEDNESDAY

My smile coffee mug made me happy (the coffee too)


3. THURSDAY

Leftovers from Wednesday night's dinner meant no dinner to make tonight.


4. FRIDAY

I was happy and contented because it was Friday

5. SATURDAY

I was happy to have been able to help someone with somethings that I used to have to ask others to help me with.


Isn't that nice that she acknowledged the help, she didn't need to do that, but thank you's are always appreciated.



 I had to say thank you myself last night when my husband sorted out the
 "Man Drawer" in the kitchen & of course his actions had made me very happy

The "Man Drawer" - Housework / Funwork 8


Only one drawer remains to be cleaned,                                                                       sorted and inventoried in the Kitchen.                                        


                      This drawer is the "Man Drawer"


Why is this drawer not done yet?
                           Because it is the responsibility of the man of the house and he is procrastinating.


What is the "Man Drawer"
                           This is the drawer that practically every house has.   
The drawer that contains all the things a man needs to have on hand even if they will never be used again.
The one about which the wife will say

"What are you keeping those things for?"


Now I did not make this term up myself.
It is the brain child of a very well known British Comedian called Michael McIntyre and if you have not seen this take a little break now and watch the short sketch below.





                        Okay I decided it was
                                                   while I watched the video yet again.

Now that you know what is contained in the man drawer .....
     batteries (are these new or used? is a question frequently heard)
     keys (what is this one for?)
     old phones
     4 tape measures (yes 4, but why more than one is required in one place I don't understand)
     foreign currency (in our case that could be many different currencies as Fred has travelled extensively with his work)
     etc. etc.

.....You can understand why it needs to be sorted and more frequently than once a year but the men are very reluctant to allow us to speak of the drawer let alone touch anything in the drawer.
     Fred, who is quite a laid back and contented man will get rather vocal when I mention this drawer.

(If you did not watch the video above, you really should go back now and do so, it is so funny)


All of the other drawers are ticked off the list.

Last week I was left with the contents of one of the drawers all over my kitchen table to be sorted and placed back in the clean drawer and this has now been done and it is so tidy and easy to find all the items now.  The larger and less often used items are in the bottom drawer of this unit all easy to get when needed.


Second Drawer After

The other drawer which took me more time to work at is the odds and ends, stationary type drawer that is just beside the little corner where we have the letter rack and the stand for my ipad and the notepad.
You know the

"this is where we throw all our receipts, business cards, post and whatever is in our hands when we come in from the car" area, mentioned in "Is it Fun Yet? - Housework/Funwork 3"

This drawer looked like this




Now some of my drawers are very small drawers which sit under narrow cupboards so they were not too time consuming.

One of these had very little in it, just basically the key to the electric box a torch and Electricity leaflet so I moved the instruction leaflets and take-out leaflets from the other drawer into this one and it still is not too cluttered up.



Then after getting a long narrow portioned tray and two other plastic containers I sorted out my drawer so that it now looks like this



Maybe we should call this one the Wife Drawer or the Woman Drawer!
It does have things in it that Fred would probably ask me


"What are you keep those things for?"



Some of the cupboards are finished and a few still to go so the Kitchen Overhaul and Inventory is going reasonably well but looks like a busy week for the last week of the month.



I have also gone through the rest of the months and here is the complete 

Yearly Housework & Organising Schedule 
























No doubt in the coming weeks & months there will be things that I suddenly remember should have been included here and are not in my Monthly/Weekly/Daily Schedule either so I will have to add those in later and perhaps I may also decide to change some things from one month to another.


Do you think I can get Fred to tackle that "MAN Drawer"?



Don't forget you can catch up with the rest of the series via the tab at the top of the blog or signup to receive the notification of each post via email.

Another Coffee Mug! - A Dose of Encouragement 8



Many years ago while we were living in America (1992-95) I bought some mugs to have to give as gifts to friends who I thought might need some encouragement. 


They had a picture of a cute little bear with the words


 “Smile! Cause God thinks you’re special and so do I”

                                                                                                  printed on them. 


When we came back to Northern Ireland I had only 
3 left, 
and shortly after that only 
one.  

That was when I decided that I was going to keep the last one for myself because sometimes I need encouragement too.

I brought it out of its box and thought about where to put it.  

You see in the unit in our lounge we had some mugs which the boys had got at the Boy’s Brigade over several years, another from Wales with our daughter Linda’s name on it, one with a picture of Peter Rabbit our son was given as a baby, and others that my husband Fred has accumulated from working trips abroad.  These are all deemed to be too good or too impractical to actually be used so they are treated as ornaments. 



I could have made a space there for this mug but somehow 
that didn’t seem quite right. 

Then I decided that if the mug was to be an encouragement to me, I should see it often and the best way to do that would be to use it regularly. 

So that is what I have done.  

It is now 2014, and I still have this mug.


It really is nice to make my coffee in this mug and smile 
when I look at the words on it.

Some may think it strange but it brings me a lot of joy to use this mug not only for the message it reminds me of but for the memories of the good friends I had to whom I gave the rest of the mugs. 



          Then one day I was in a girl’s home when she showed me some bibles which she was very proud to have.  She told me the story associated with each bible, why they were important to her and how she liked to keep them in very good condition, even though one of them was more than 150 years old.  

The problem was, each of these bibles was wrapped carefully in a plastic bag and put away only to be brought out occasionally for someone else to hear the stories.  


This was the only way for her to keep them clean and in good condition.  

I found it very sad to think that even though this girl held fond memories of the people she had got these bibles from or the places from which she had received them, and had a special high regard for these as old books; she didn’t read them and she didn’t make use of them so she couldn’t be encouraged by the words within or come to know the joy of meeting the Saviour they offered her.  


It was like my mug. 


If I had kept it ‘good’ I would not have got the enjoyment and encouragement from it that I have got by using it regularly; 


and would I smile and remember that I’m special to God?



I am thankful that my special mug has lasted so long and I am thankful that it brings such good memories and encouragement and joy to me.
Do you have something that does this for you?

 I believe you are special to God too.  Do you?

Why We Worship 7


I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"


One of the things about God that we may find hard to understand and perhaps never understand fully, but just have to accept that it is true,
 is that 

God 

always has existed 
and 
always will exist

So today I'm thinking about worshipping God because 



We were born and we will die and that is the cycle of life that we understand 
but we are not like God.


He has always existed in the same way: fully and completely as God.


So we must cry





Have you grasped the  "who was and is and is to come" ?

Do you worship Him even though you may not fully understand Him?

The Kitchen! - Housework / Funwork 7


Maybe I should have entitled this


"The DREADED Kitchen!"

because that is usually how I feel about cleaning and sorting it out mainly because it just entails so much.

Well really the first thing that had to be done was...

                            ...Oh come on now if you have read any of the other posts in this series you have got to know what is coming next

MAKE A LIST

So out comes the iPad again (really it never leaves my side anyway) and into that Todo list app I love and told you about in  Housework / Funwork 5 - Did I do Well?

POCKETS LIST App

Title of list   OVERHAUL - KITCHEN 

This is the list of all the things I need to do in order to completely springclean the kitchen.

Unfortunately this was going to be a much longer list than the one for the Ensuite (only 11 tasks)  and the one for the Master Bedroom (15 tasks) and some of these tasks in the kitchen are going to be big jobs.




Now something else was needed while I was having to concentrate to compile this list.

                                          Yes it was 
                         love this time.


Okay I got the list done and although it sort of depressed me at first to see the extent of this list at least I could now use the list to decide which things to do each day and and have a good sense of how much was getting done.

Because this list is so long and cannot be shown on one screen on the app I will give a shorter adaptation of it here


KITCHEN  OVERHAUL
  • Each of the Wall cupboards starting from one end and going round to other end
  • Each of the Bottom cupboards in same way
  • Each of the 5 single drawers in same way
  • Each of the 4 drawers in The drawer unit
  • Fridge
  • Fridge Freezer
  • Dishwasher
  • Fronts of all drawers and cupboards plus Top and bottom trims of wood
  • Table & Chairs
  • Oven & Hob
  • Window
  • Wall Tiles
  • Floor
  • Rest of woodwork
  • Suite in sitting area
  • Unit in sitting area
  • Lights
  • Walls
  • Wall Decorations
  • Objects on Worktops
  • Woorktops



KITCHEN INVENTORY

It is best to do the inventory at the same time as the overhaul so the ABFINDIT app was now set up for the kitchen as well .      

AB  FINDIT App

STARTING THE KITCHEN OVERHAUL

I decided to start with the drawers as I felt they would mostly be the simplest areas and I would feel a sense of accomplishment quickly with each of these.


Indeed all of the single drawers are small and not used for things that would make them get very dirty so they were quickly emptied, cleaned and the contents washed and dried and returned to the drawers.

The set of drawers was a bigger job.

The Top Drawer was the one that was in best order because it contained the everyday cutlery and some extra knives and all of this was organised in a blue cutlery insert which fits the drawer perfectly.
All I had to do was take everything out and put it in the dishwasher, wash out the cutlery insert and then replace everything just leaving a few things to go into a different drawer.

Top Drawer


The Third Drawer was easy enough  -   just sorting through all the Tea towels & Dish cloths to see which to keep and which to relegate to Utility Room as cleaning cloths. 
Then getting them washed and back into the drawer.

The Bottom Drawer was a bit more time consuming.
I moved out the placemats and coasters to the Dining Room (these are extra ones as I keep the ones used everyday on the table in a rack.  Kept the new pot holders and oven gloves that are in reserve in the drawer and used the rest of the space for the larger and seldom used items from the second drawer.

The Second Drawer was the main problem.

I think this explains it all
Second Drawer  -  BEFORE

Yes it really was brimming over like this and some things actually fell out at the back as I lifted the drawer out.  You can hardly see that there are grey plastic containers of different sizes which all fit together snugly in the drawer and should hold everything neatly but don't at the moment.

I had decided to rearrange some of the content from this drawer into the bottom drawer so that we would be able to find what we wanted straight away instead of having to rummage through the drawer every time.  But that means that the extra tablemats and coasters in the bottom drawer will have to move to the Dining Room (ah well I'll slip them into one of the dresser cupboards and then sort it all out when it comes the month for the Dining Room).

So everything was taken out of the second drawer, washed, dried, sorted and left sitting on the table arranged in piles of the same type of things and .....
           
       ..... well that's where it sat overnight and still is as I write this but it will be back into the drawer latter today,  I promise Fred.
