And the winner is...

A few days ago I posted a photo and a memory game-type challenge. Props to Mark for coming closest by identifying the two thermometers which didn't belong in the kitchen, a lab thermometer —useful for various science fair projects— and an aquarium thermometer, I was wondering where that went....

I'm still putting stuff back in the new kitchen, this evening it was a bin of food from the dry-goods cabinet. I have a whole row of boxes of stuff to get rid of because the average "best by" date is January 2006. Tomorrow: the spice cabinet.

I'd like to have a kitchen warming party when it's done but that might be a while because my painter is booked until November unless it rains when he has outside jobs scheduled, then he can fit us in. At least it's a functional kitchen without paint, I just don't have a functional livingroom, it still looks like a yard sale in there.

Sheesh.

Anne, I'd say have a small-to-medium sized party to celebrate the kitchen: invite those people who truly appreciate your cooking:-)

Then when everything is done, have the big party...
But don't miss out on the kitchen party: celebrate the kitchen!

Michele would say the same thing, or something different...

If you really really trust your friends you could have a paint party and bypass the painter altogether. attylfws. No, wait. That goes in the box below.

I think for us, as long as the kitchen is functioning, we can manage the rest of the chaos. [famous last words!]
Cheers

Thumbs up to breadbox'es idea and John's. Or party while you are having your close friends help paint. Oh, wait. That might result in a bad paint job, huh?

I do my best painting after a few beers... well at least I think so? :-)

Now you just need to find birth control for the clutter. You'd be rich if you could figure out how to keep that stuff from breeding in those pretty new cabinets and drawers.

I'm trying to weed out the stuff I haven't used in a while and only put back the "good" stuff. It might be time for a yardsale.

Junque anyone?
