Morning, fudge, random flashes, COOKIES!

23 12 2008

So it’s morning, not much to this morning, except it’s cold and it is going to get colder!

I made fudge last night. I was dissapointed in the very delicious results. I was dissapointed because I didn’t have the solidity I was hoping for. But it is still very rich and delicious. Plus the directions don’t say how long it should sit out. LOL

I get no hits whatsoever on this blog. I should link myspaz and facehook and my livejournal here. Maybe I’ll get more people here. Instead of me.

In other news, I’ve been cleaning the kitchen, see one of the reasons I made fudge is that I was in the mood to make cookies. And I made fudge because I was tired of the marshmallow fluff sitting around and it had to be used. 

 I’m going to make grandma’s form cookies as well, because that sounds great. My dad made the cookies from his kit and I’ll laugh if they’re even close to grandma’s recipe. She got it from the Columbus Dispatch in 1964 so it involves a bunch of things that you don’t see anymore, like icing made out of egg whites and dissolving the baking soda in milk (they’re form cookies so they’re really like sweetened dough and oh so great!)

I can’t wait. TTYL!





OMG coughing up a lung

One of the primary reasons for why I haven’t cleaned in a while is sounding like I’ve been either working in a coal mine or sounding like it’s late summer and ragweed season.

I am SUFFERING from dah allergies from hell right now.

But…

I do have a clean livingroom. Maybe not ORGANIZED, but clean. I can see the floor at least. And I can feel at ease in this space. That’s good. Tomorrow will be sorting out the stuff that belongs in other parts of my apartment and finding places for the stuff I have now in this space. Then finding where I’m going to put everything else.

Then I’m doing the kitchen next. Which includes organizing all those shelves. And organizing help from someone to put up my copper. Unless I put them in this one spot… Oh nevermind They’re going in that one spot. It’s easier for me to reach anyway. I got another one of my signs up.

Yeah, I got my work ahead of me, I know. But it will be REWARDING when it is done!





Flylady-Old and Outdated

2 12 2008

Just a thought here, I was thinking about FlyLady and thinking about her organizational and cleaning system. Which I like intrinistically but also I like Julie Morgenstern. (Which btw, if someone finds her lectures, I’d love to clean to THAT she’s funny!)

The problem I had with the flylady is her main message: Don’t forget to shine your sink.

I don’t know about you. I don’t spend that much TIME in the kitchen. I maybe go in there to look at food that is in the fridge and maybe whip something up. I don’t spend all my time in there, nor do I look at it everyday. HOwever, my livingroom is a different climate entirely. This is where I spend most of my time. I think instead mine should be….

“Don’t forget to clean off the desk…” Yeah, because I do everything at this place. And cleaning and organizing it would remind me of the rest of my house.
