Warning: potential bad post
However, it could be really great.
I have a lot to get done today and I'm hoping that writing it all down will keep me going.
You know the whole accountability thing...
Starting at 8:32.
Put the trash out.
Proud moment - took a large garbage bag to the basement and filled it with things I had been saving since I might use them one day. Put it out with the garbage. Whew!
Put load of wash in the dryer. Washed another.
Fed the cats.
Completed step 1 of cleaning (very long story) 8 cast iron skillets so they can be seasoned today while Mr. Quirky is out of town. He doesn't like the smell. Imagine that.
Emptied the dishwasher.
Cleaned the sticky label stuff off the metal brackets I am using on some shelves I am making for the kitchen. Fingernail polish remover didn't work. Vegetable oil did. Makes me wonder if I should have vegetable oil in my kitchen cabinets.
Removed the last bits of my 6 month old pedicure with the polish remover.
Put wash in dryer, put load in washer.
Completed step 2 of cleaning (very long story) 27 cast iron skillets so they can be seasoned today while Mr. Quirky is out of town. He doesn't like the smell. Imagine that.
Cleared a box of paint off of the dining table - put into messy basement.
Wondered if I should have a goal of clearing off the table today;
Painted my toenails. Big accomplishment.
Completed step 3 of cleaning (very long story) 246 cast iron skillets so they can be seasoned today while Mr. Quirky is out of town. He doesn't like the smell. Imagine that.
That took a long time.
Set skillets to soak in vinegar.
Tried to find the blog that had the info for the skillet seasoning technique I am going to use for the cast iron.
Laid out a paint sheet to spray paint the metal brackets for the kitchen shelves.
Dumped Christmas glitter that was carefully collected into the paint sheet all over my freshly painted toenails.
Spray painted metal brackets.
Oiled cast iron and put it in oven for 1st seasoning.
Seasoning cast iron stinks.
Cleaned up mess from cleaning cast iron. It is messy and spatters everywhere.
Washed kitchen cabinets and fronts of appliances.
Realized that I need to touch up kitchen cabinet paint.
Swept and steamed kitchen floor
Cut the boards for the kitchen shelves.
Repainted metal brackets.
Mr Quirky called and asked me to pick him up an hour earlier than I had scheduled.
Stuck my hand in the oven to feel if the skillets had cooled. Put my whole hand on the burning pan.
Realize I'm an idiot.
I've only gotten one round of seasoning done. At least 6 are required.
Mr. Quirky is going to be all out of sorts.
Pick up Mr. Quirky at the airport.
Go to dinner.
It's 8:49 and I'm going to spend the rest of the evening watching basketball.
And smelling roasting cast iron.
If you are actually reading this post, I thank you. Having this cast iron almost finished is a gargantuan accomplishment for me.
Believe it or not I started cleaning them over a year ago.
Or was it two?
