Yesterday I started the fall cleaning and reorganizing.  Last time I made chocolate chip cookies I put them on the marble table to cool and I heard a cracking sound, I didn’t see anything so paid no attention to it but yesterday the crack in the marble showed up and it was a big one by now.  We had to decide if we should try to save part of it or not and decided to make a new top for the table.  When we lifted up the marble we knew we had made the right choice, there were many cracks on the underside just waiting to go.  So we are reorganizing the whole summer kitchen.  That means my studio and sewing area will also be involved with the change of storage items so this week yesterday I started in the studio boxing up all my genology papers and book research papers so they would be pack away where I can get to them when I want them again and aren’t making such a mess in there.  Today I will wash everything in there and bring some of my boxed thread down there to store.  Then I will clean and organized the sewing room and make room in there for the books that are in the summer kitchen.  I figure it will take about a week or two to get these three areas all cleaned up and organized.  So not much to report on for a while.  I will still be working on the recipes for on my neat works and if I try something good I’ll let you know.  Have a good day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
