Yesterday was the roller coaster day.

I made lunch for the high-school seniors (one of my favorite activities).

Then, I thought I was going to die--you know the feeling. Bathed in a cold sweat, praying you could just throw up, so you do, then you feel better? (This is definitely NOT one of my favorite activities.)

Then, a phone call from my hubby darling. "People" were coming to deliver my birthday present.
Nothing can get you out of a flu-like stupor faster than "Special Delivery."
I've looked and looked for a cabinet with glass that would fit this strange dimension in my kitchen.
And I finally found it! And Brad ordered it for my birthday. This birthday just keeps going and getting better!
Not only does its 48 1/2" fit perfectly inside this 50 1/4" space, but those gorgeous beveled glass doors? They LOCK, my friend, they LOCK. So it's perfectly safe to leave all my white servingware down within Hyrum's grasp.
I spent the rest of the afternoon rearranging and wiping out cupboards, organizing and decorating to my little heart's content. Ahhhhh. It's like a long bath. Soothing and relaxing. Organizing is definitely one of my favorite activities.

Special organizing hint: The vertical inserts used to hold lids? Also can be used to organize servingware and pie plates. Like this:Easier to get to. Easier to use.
And I'm NOT diabetic for the next ten weeks. What could be better?
Maybe a good night's sleep. But I'm not complaining!

Off to rearrange the last cupboard affected by the giant shuffle of 2009!


  1. Wow, it's the birthday that keeps on giving. That is really a nice piece o' furniture.


    PS. I hope you are feeling much better today!

  2. I never realized you were an organization freak. Living with me must have driven you crazy! :P

  3. Yeah!! That is so beautiful.
    I hope you are feeling better, and hooray for no diabetes! :)

  4. I love that cabinet, and the white dishes look fabulous in there. And it locks? How did you get so lucky? See, I told you a good 3rd thing would happen yesterday...this might have been different than what I predicted, but there's still time for that too!

  5. That cabinet is gorgeous! What a perfect gift. I wish you could teach me how to organize. I am not good at it. I am glad that you are not diabetic! I love good news!

  6. Ahhhh, now it makes more sense. You have been almost constantly on my mind for days!! Thank you for your comment...really, THANK YOU!
    And, LOVE to you too my sweet friend.

  7. P.S. Thanks, Jen, for the completely thorough and very helpful comment (mini-post, heehee) about blog makeovers. Makes me really glad that I asked you!

    You are a good friend!!
