Up to speed with Kelly's Missions...
It's always a good day for me when I can keep up with Kelly's Missions for the Flylady zone of the week. This week we're in the kitchen -- a very good thing, after all the cooking and baking and culinary disasters and general busyness of the holidays. I'm counting this toward my Valentine countdown challenge, too, because it's always helpful to have one's kitchen nice and clean when company's here and helping with cooking, washing dishes, setting the table, etc.
Today I managed to clean my silverware drawer (the mission for yesterday) --even taking out the silverware holder, washing & drying it, etc. -- and began decluttering the pantry (today's mission was to do at least one shelf of the pantry). I actually have two pantries -- an open cabinet in my kitchen and an old freezer in the cellar for additional storage. Today I was able to declutter the entire kitchen pantry! I am very encouraged!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
