Kitchen progress

My kitchen progress is slow due to some work related issues. I did manage to get rid of about 25 place settings  of dishes this week, though. I was very happy with that. I have six place settings-dinner plate, lunch plate, saucer, large bowl, dessert bowl-left. That is more than enough for one person. I haven’t missed the extras… except when I first realized I’d just given away my “starter set”-the first dishes I had when I first graduated college. That was a slightly emotional moment. Someone came and bought them all, though, and I wasn’t going to pass up the money. Especially not when I would have almost paid someone to take them!

Next is the pots and pans. Again, I have more than enough. I need to list them on Craigslist like I did the dishes. I’m not sure anyone would buy them, but I hope they would. I do use my pots and pans more than my dishes though, so I’ll have to think about that one for a little while.

Last Monday, I saw a set of Corning Ware that matches my Corelle better than the ones I had. I had a larger set, and this was smaller, so I offered to trade the people who were giving them away. They gladly agreed, so I got a newer, nearly unused set, and they got a larger, more used set. We were all happy, I think. In getting my set out, I realized two things:

1) I hadn’t used my Corning Wear in a VERY long time. They were covered in dust so thick I could write in it.

2) I had more than I thought. This Christmas I looked into getting a set of glass storage bowls in smaller sizes. I didn’t realize I had smaller Corning Wear bowls already in the cabinet. So I kept those when I gave the large set away. And once I’d thought about it, I did kind of remember buying them somewhere…

So the Corning Ware stays. I suspect the Teflon pans will almost all go–supposedly just like everything else, they can be hazardous to your health. So maybe I’ll keep a couple pieces and sell the rest. I’m not sure yet. What I NEED to do is box it all and see what I really remember and need if I can’t see it anymore. I suspect there wouldn’t be much in that box worth going to the basement for…


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
