it all started in the silverware drawer

Our silverware drawer is right under the most prominently used portion of our counter. Because of that it quite often if full of not only silverware (and sundry other kitchen-y type things) but lots of crumbs, dripped jelly, spilled flour... you get the point. Yesterday I was unloading the dishwasher and reached that point of ultimate disgust- the drawer must be cleaned. As I was putting the silverware back in the drawer I just couldn't bring myself to clutter the drawer up with all the extra junk that was in there. And the next thing I knew I was cleaning out all the cabinets, looking for things we no longer used. I came up with a whole box of stuff to donate (plus a couple of bags of stuff to toss)...

Then I moved a book shelve from the the garage to the kitchen

And finally took out the 25+ year old, above stove microwave.
That was totally unplanned, but I am so glad we did it! I've been talking about taking that thing out since we moved in 4.5 years ago and it is finally done! The only problem now is that I can not get to the wood in my shed to fix up the space until we get our new windows out of the shed and into our house! Hopefully next weekend.
