Tackle it Tuesday

Hello, This is the thing that has been on my heart to do...just for me.

My sweet husband noticed that my light was flickering and so for one of the gifts of recent he replaced the bulb for me.
I became inspired to care about my pleasure in baking.
Now that bread baking is a weekly task,
and I am noticing how disorganized my steps are this needed to be addressed.
I began by reclaiming the two drawers the one on the right had all the misc lids in it.
The one on the left held office type things and just misc junk.

One the right is now my Kitchen Aid Mixer parts.
With the large parts underneath in the box.

Lunches are now a normal daily occurrence and has been for several months. The savings is fantastic. However early morning sleep girl I am had a mixed up process. Now it will be much more stream lined and
With the Salt Box hung, the rolling pin here and both mixers a baking center is established.
The flour grist mill is on the far left. The heavy duty mixer next to it, and the canisters with needed daily supplies near. I am moving these ingredients out of the pantry.

Far left drawer begins its collected items...
Now it is ready for mixer use, and biscuit making as well as the napkins near the kitchen table.

Far right began to formNow
it has come together...
All measure, scoops, and hand made wooden mixing spoons at the ready.
Also funnels for canning, and pastry knife. I have a bit more to do here.

Below far left is all the baking pans, trays and cooling racks.

This has come together as well. The mixing bowls, rolling sheet, mixer and plastic.
Lids in large baggies separated and boxed, the kitchen aid box. and the cake pans that I do not hang up.
Above is the canning jars at my ready (they were out of reach above the refer), small plastics for lunches and recycled jars too. This is two sets of China, one is inherited and the other the china of my youth. These are serving dishes and such. Punch cups for the big punch bowl.
Upper left
Sifter (no more bending to dig it out of the other corner, measure cups (some are in the sink) and storage for the sandwiches of lunches. Tins with the cup cake papers, candles for cakes and some cake stencils, cookie cutters in the tin, and jello molds in the other big tin (they are antique, inherited). Above are the pie plates, chopping cups and the spring release pan.

no more tool drawer
He has a shop for tools!

Now in center, towels for morning lunch making, baggies (no more going back and forth to the pantry) all the decorative small cutters for pies and cakes. The cookie press and a salt shaker.

By and by these will have
Flour, sugar, brown sugar for dusting, baking powder (the jar is being washed) and soda. Yeast in the small one.
These jars have been collected over many years they are very old.
I have never been able to enjoy them like this before.

I will most likely tweak it a bit as I use it.
Less foot falls more time to play in the garden :)

You are a girl after an OCD organizer's heart.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
