Busy week, Kitchen deep clean, Giveaway: Monday Blog Post

Our wedding. Such goofs.

Newest News:

Newest news is that I’m busy this week! LOL! I know. Everyone is busy. But I have something or two somethings going on every single day. I’m retired. I shouldn’t have that many appointments. But I do, so there we are. I hope your week is suitably busy and not stressing you out. What’s on tap? My book festival meeting and a neighborhood ladies lunch on Monday. Tuesday is the town Chamber of Commerce luncheon which I’m attending as the chamber is bringing back the guy from Google to teach business people how to use the app. There’s also the Girls Night Out group meeting at happy hour. Can’t miss that. Wednesday brings the Arizona Professional Writer’s state officer’s meeting. I’m the Membership Chair and the President of the Rim Country Chapter. That will end up being an all day event because it’s being held in Phoenix. Thursday is the Gila Community College board meeting and I’m now on that board. The evening is Bunko and it’s at my house. I started cleaning last week. The cupboards were a disaster and I’ve tossed a lot of stuff out. So that makes me feel good. I have a meeting with the venue where the book festival is going to be held on Friday morning. After that, it’s our Anniversary on Sunday. Forty-five years. Whew! I’ll try to keep up!

Above I mentioned that I decided to do a deep clean of the kitchen this last week. It was long overdue. It’s amazing how junk builds up in the cabinets. Lot’s of stuff has hit the storage area for a yard sale. Lots of other stuff went directly into the trash. Hubby has been an awesome help. Otherwise we’d still be doing the tops of the cabinets. I still have the bottom cabinets to do but there’s not so much stuff down there to be moved, cabinets washed, the stuff put back. And again, I’ll have my eyes peeled for pots, pans, etc., that can be tossed!
