Things to do.
Very little things.
Things that if I would just do them my life would be better.
Better because there is a reason these things need to be done.
Most of these pending things are just minor adjustments.
But for some reason I don't do them.
Sometimes I forget.
Sometimes I do other things.
So I've decided that this week I'm going to do the little things.
I'm hoping you won't be bored.
I'm really hoping that maybe me moving will inspire you to move too.
This is a tale of the kitchen utensil holder.
The one that was too big,
and the one that was too small.
And big or little, they were both too deep.
So I kept trying different ways to make everything fit properly.
So that my utensils could be put away quickly and easily.
And pulled out quickly and easily.
But alas, something was always happening that made this not happen.
I lived a life filled with UTENSIL STRIFE.
I don't know which is more stupid -
that this bothered me so much,
that I put up with something that bothered me so much for so long,
or that it took me so long to come up with a 5 minute solution.
I got out the ol' plaster of paris.
(this is your little special tip of the day: When you accidentally open the plaster of paris upside down, you just write the instructions right side up. Because reading upside down is no fun.)
I mixed it up right in the pitcher and let it dry.
After about three hours drying time -
well it was done.
Not too tall.
Not to fat.
Not too big.
And I now live a life free of utensil tangle.
And I'm proud as punch.
Proud as a peacock.
And happy to have that One.Little.Thing. removed from my mental list.
So tell me.
Is there One.Little.Thing you will get done this week?
Just to make me happy.
Just so I know you weren't bored.
