HERBS – THE HERB CUPBOARD

22 08 2012

HELLO

Today much of my day was spent on the phone, or trying to find papers which my Mother had put in a folder or briefcase.  My Mom is in assisted living in FLorida.  Her house is being sold and many papers to find and fax down.  She has some dementia and still thinks that she could live alone.  She refused to come north but now wishes she could.  It may happen, but for now she will stay where she has lived for the past 2 years.  Her body is accustomed to the Florida weather.  So every few months I will fly down, I send her packages of goodies every week and call her.  It’s the best I can do.  She has friends in the assisted living and a very kind staff.  When I leave I feel a sense of sadness but know that she will be taken care of.   As they say aging is not for sissies.

THE HERB CUPBOARD

THE HERB CUPBOARD

This is my Herb Cupboard.  Its full of herbs and spices, pudding mixes and things like that.  I bought the cupboard a couple of years ago at   Strawberry Fields for under $75.00.  In the beginning I didn’t like it but it suited my purpose of having all my supplies out in the open and in one place.  I do love this old house but I have to say that there is no storage space whatsoever.   Now that I have painted it a light yellow I like it a lot better.  SOme of the baskets on the wall I have made and some I have purchased in Ireland.  This is the back part of my kitchen.  Last summer I had to have it all rebuilt as the sill was rotted and the floor beams were rotted.  Pat , my neighbor did it all and it came out just right.  He added shelving about a foot from the ceiling and all my things that I don’t use everyday are there. No news on the egg front. GOOD DAY TO YOU
