I don’t “nest,” and I’m certainly not doing it today. I don’t know why the kid were giggling at me.
That container cabinet was overstuffed with useless trash and long overdue for a cleaning. Pulling everything out, getting rid of the excess, and finally adding labels will make it easier to keep organized. Now the kids will know exactly where to put Pitchers, Ice Trays, Mixing Bowls, Jars, Tools (apple peeler/slicer corer, sifter, sliding measuring cup, etc.), Vases, Containers, and empty ice cream Buckets. I just need a couple of big boxes for the stuff I’m getting rid of.
The fridge? Well, it didn’t make sense to sort through the containers in the cabinet while there were so many more containers in the fridge. I needed to have a clear idea of just how many containers we had, didn’t I? Anyway, the fridge was long overdue for some special attention too. The shelves were filthy, and I can’t remember the last time I scrubbed the gasket and screws around the handle with an old toothbrush. It looks much more appetizing now.
And you can hardly blame me for transplanting my tomatoes into our homemade earth boxes. They were outgrowing their temporary homes and it’s May – time to let them start growing in earnest so we can have fresh tomatoes soon!
Now that the tomatoes were moved out of the flower pots, it seemed like a perfect time and place to start my cucumber seeds. Why not? I really should go back out and plant some zucchini seeds too. I think I’ll do that now.
Next, if the kids will just find me a handful of screws, we’ll go hang a big double cage in the chicken coop for our mama hen and her 6 children so they won’t be total strangers to the flock when we let them loose. We can put another broody hen with some eggs in the other side of the cage. I’ve been meaning to do that all week, and it’s Friday already. I should help them put some fresh hay in the chicken coop too, since I scooped up 2 large trash bags of loose hay the last time I was at the feed store.
But even though I don’t believe in “nesting,” I really do need to check the supplies left over from our last birth so I’ll know what to order in my birth kit this time. It’s only 3 weeks until my duedate, so it’s time to start preparing.
