Today has been a busy day, as I've been preparing to go to a nearby town tomorrow morning to minister with puppets. When I was winding down for the evening, I was tempted to just sit down on the couch to watch a movie...veggin' out, ya know! Well, something inside of me said "NO! You have to balance out the day!" So...I thought about what one thing really bothered me a lot about my house, and my fridge came to mind! Every time I opened the door of the fridge or freezer, this is what greeted me:
I made this picture larger so you could see how gross the shelf is! It's been like this for about a week...why is it that something this easy to clean takes so long to actually get to?
Oh, yeah...we are guilty of being pop-a-holics! I've thought about starting Pop-a-holics Anonymous! Seriously...
There it is! The dreaded refrigerator!
But, after about 1/2 hour, this is the make-over:
I found 2 unused plastic shoebox containers to try to...um...contain...like items. I do think I will look for other containers that are not quite as tall, though...and I still need to label them. It's a start...
See the clean shelf!! It was VERRRYYY sticky!
I think it's time to do a little grocery shopping now. It's much easier when you can see what you have!
I do have to show one thing that my daughter thought quite disgusting...see if you can figure out what it is:
If you guessed 'cilantro', you are right! At least in it's 1st lifetime! LOL! This was the worst food item found in the fridge, though...
For the little time it took, I am very pleased! Thank you, Lord, for reminding me to keep balance in my day! If I can keep this going on a daily basis, balance, order, and peace will be a constant in my home!
I'd love to hear how you organize YOUR fridge and freezer!
