You think we’re done with turkey? Not yet.
We have really enjoyed having turkey in the refrigerator ready to eat whenever we are ready. So, Justin made another one! He brined it over night again, stuffed it with aromatics and it cooked for four and half hours yesterday, filling our home with yummy smells once again!
I didn’t workout yesterday. Instead, I got an early start to the day and cleaned our closet! I wish I would have been brave enough to take a before picture, but let me just tell you…you couldn’t see the floor! And the dresser at the end of our closet was piled high!
I should probably explain the sign that is so huge it can actually sit on the shelves on each each of the closet! When I left my 8-5 job almost 9 years ago, they threw a surprise going away party for me and made this sign that everyone signed. I was so appreciative and loved it so much, I kept it. I think I can let it go now.
So, I took a close up picture and will be putting it out with the trash this week.
We need a new closet arrangement pretty bad but for now, we are working with the canvas bins you see on the shelves. (don’t you just want to straighten those hangers…it’s all I can look at now)
They work really great for pants, shorts, swim suits, sports bras and sweaters and then the dresser hold all our under garments.
At the other end of the closet I hung my purses and scarves. I need to grab some more command hooks for purses because I still have several sitting in a pile and I don’t think I should be hanging them three deep on those command hooks!
I love this over the door organizer I bought form OpenSky.com. I wanted to give you the link but it’s already sold out. Here it is at Amazon.com. I paid $22 for it, so it’s too bad that it’s not at OpenSky any more!
I still have some work to do in there but I am feeling much better about our closet. We have a couple of bags of stuff for goodwill too.
It took me pretty much all day to clean that closet! Justin and I went through everything in there and did the whole keep, donate or trash thing.
My next organizing groove needs to be getting my yarn situation under control. It’s a mess!
Besides cleaning our closet, I ate the following meals:
Meal #1: Egg whites and gluten free toast
Meal #2, 3 and 4: Turkey Pot pie. Evidently I was in a Pot Pie kind of mood. I think it’s the cold temps in Kansas City have me going for warm food.
I snacked on some turkey in the late afternoon but didn’t have a good meal for dinner. My sister, Autumn, and I went over to my Uncle’s where my Mom and Stepdad were because they were thinking it would be Grandpa’s last night.
I was pretty tired by the time we got home and went to bed pretty early.
