spread a blanket on the living room floor and celebrated Phil's birthday on Saturday. We did not work on the house. We rested!
Phil also finished the pantry shelves. They are super sturdy. Once they were all in place I screwed a 2 x 4 flat to the top of the canned goods shelf. This will provide for a little height for the those cans in the rear of the shelf. Make things easier to find. And then I repainted everything. Once dry--and I could hardly wait for that--I began unpacking boxes and loading the shelves. Between Phil's kitchen, my kitchen at Falfurrias and the makeshift kitchen we have here, I found lots and lots of dupes. I have enough poultry seasoning to season all the chicken on "Chicken Run". Won't need to buy any of that for awhile either. We will not be buying pork and beans for a while or pasta. Some things that we use a lot, we just have a lot of. And easily, one half of one of these long shelves is taken up by spices. So, I have decided to build a spice rack so I can free up the shelf space and see the spices. But it is nice to have everything in one place where it can be seen, sorted and used easily.
