Monday Meanderings

I have to post this today because I have a friend who doesn't like to read my blog on the weekend when I talk about getting organized. She says it makes her want to work around the house on her day off. So I waited until today.

I am going to do some shopping around my house this week. Which means I'll be rearranging and reorganizing some of my areas. One thing I want to work on is the top of the kitchen cabinets.Right now it contains items I stuck up there just because I couldn't find any place for them. I thought about putting my Pyrex there, but I am starting to use it so while it would look good up there, it wouldn't be practical. Maybe I could put pieces I bought that I don't really use. I will have to think this through some more.

I hate this counter. We always have snack bowls on the counter and my recipe book basket, but it is getting too cluttered. I don't ever use that little coffee pot, The red canister is one I just picked up at a yard sale and put it there until I can decide what to do with it. But something is going to have to change on that counter. I despise how crowded it is. 

Right now, some of my Pyrex that I am starting to use is on the bottom rack of the wine rack which is at the backside of the table so you can't really see it. I need to find a new place for it. 

I do love this shelf, except for the flowers in the McCoy pitcher. I am over the spring flowers so those will have to go. I may move the pitcher somewhere else. I'll have to wait and look at it without the flowers before I decide. 

My granddaughter Shelby had her birthday party Saturday. We had a great time and I got to spend the evening with my grandchildren. I didn't get to get many pictures because it was too hectic with a game room by the party room. Plus the lighting in the party room was horrible. But I did snag a picture of the cake. 

And a picture of the birthday girl fake yawning while we were singing to her. 

And my two beautiful granddaughters, Alexis and Shelby. 

Hubby and I had a wonderful trip to Gatlinburg Friday. I love stopping at The Village. There are so many quaint shops in there. 

And no trip to Gatlinburg is complete without a visit to the Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen. Of course I had to buy some milk chocolate orange creams. 

Did I tell you our little city is getting a Pizza Hut Express right beside the Food City grocery store. This is a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing is we don't have but two pizza places in Kodak and one I don't like and the other is inconvenient to get to but their delivery time is about 90 minutes. The bad thing is the new Pizza Hut is exactly 3 minutes from my house and Pizza Hut is my favorite Pizza. I think when I order something I may need to walk and get it so I can waylay some of the calories. 

I want to leave you with a little humor this morning. This really made me chuckle.
