RAISE YOUR HAND IF ....

I was gonna head to Erie (30 minutes north), but with the morning rain, I decided to stay local. Now I'm about to remove all my cookery/bake stuff from under the sink so that the area can fully dry (from the leak).

Meanwhile, I've got Bryan Adams cranked and I'm wearing my Halloween shirt. You know why? Because I love Halloween and the only shirts I have left are the ones that I love to wear, year-round.

In other news, I'm making homemade peanut butter. Well, not me, the food processor is doing all the work, but I helped.

    1. Sorry you're having a rough go, Theda. Just read your post about the trade off of things. Here's to that getting sorted.

  3. *raises hand* Me, me!

    That was my morning, although I did finally squeeze in some treadmill time and a shower. The afternoon should be busier, although I am planning to do a little reading at some point. I need to read the way I need oxygen :)

    1. Did you get your reading in? Do you ever read outside? We have a deck outside our kitchen and I sit out there on my many breaks.

      Happy Weekend.

  6. You are the best advert for decluttering I know.
    We had a pretty good day too but not on the Internet, although that would have been good as well.

    1. I really am.

      I finished clearing under the sink in two seconds. I knew everything that was there and, I stored it all on the flex station in the office. It could sit there for a month and not be in the way.

  10. I love rain. Halloween? Not celebrated here. It is just after seven here, and while I am glued to the PC, I will get things done. I think. I hope.

    1. We celebrate it for an entire season and then there are year-round things like shirts, skulls and other boogie boogie items.

      Did you enjoy your garden time?

      How's your voice today?

  11. Leaky sink bad
    Moving baking stuff away from sink good
    Another baking spot even better

    I have seen Halloween stuff everywhere already.
    Need to make a fun box for Japanese family.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

    1. Hey Girl. No food is stored under there. It's next to the oven so I store my bake pans and it works nicely.

      But once I demo my kitchen, then ANYTHING goes.

      Muwhahahaha.

  12. Wow! Homemade peanut butter sounds good! We buy Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter, which just has peanuts and salt. I imagine homemade must be even butter!
    Wow again. You got rid of 90%?! That's pretty impressive!

    1. It's so yummy!!!!!

      Thanks. The first four weeks, 80 percent left the house. The rest, shortly after and the entire process was an organic one.

      And I miss nothing.

    1. I've always worn my Halloween shirts year-round. Just makes good sense to me. But now, all those other meh shirts, they be GONE!

      Peanut butter on a bagel is fantastic. Do you have a favorite type of bagel?

  17. Cinnamon raisin, blueberry or for savory, onion.
