I feel a little cooked. I've been working on back-to-back projects, each of which have taken longer than they should. And on Monday, I realized that I haven't been feeling good for quite some time. I've taken the liberty of diagnosing myself with severe anemia (a problem I've had several times), and I am medicating myself with red meat, spinach, iron tablets and, well, bran. We can leave it at that. Any way you slice it, I'm plumb tired.
(Stifling a yawn) . ..moving on.
There's something that's been bugging me about my kitchen. It's not the worn linoleum floor or the tiny passageway which makes it impossible to get through if the refrigerator door is open. It's not even the low-hanging cabinet above the stove that makes you have to duck your head to see into the eating area. Or the faucet with the backward Hot and Cold.
It's the fact that every time I open my silverware drawer, I am confronted by crumbs that have fallen into the silverware tray. It just makes it look...dirty. Ugh.
I've found that an easy time to wipe out the drawer and tray is just before I unload clean silverware into it from the dishwasher. It's usually almost empty at that point. It literally takes one or two minutes to do a quick swabbing and wow! It looks incredibly clean and organized!
Today's Small Thing is to wipe out your silverware tray and/or drawer. You may not have the crumb problem I have, but a quick swipe with a damp cloth will really bring it up to Sanctuary Code.
(I just made that Code up...but "it's not really a rule, it's more like a guideline")
POINTS: 20 for wiping out the silverware drawer
"OPPORTUNITY TO LEAP AHEAD OF YOUR COMPETITION" POINTS: 10 points for each additional kitchen drawer you wipe out, up to 8 more (you can enlist help from your troops)
Max points: 100
