Achhh! I got so busy with life I completely forgot to load my post today.
Spring cleaning has begun in our house, much to my husband’s chagrin. This is the time of year I start going through closets and asking “Do we really need to keep this?” At the beginning of this “season” he really does think about each item I show him. By the end, however, his eyes glaze over whenever I come near with something in my hand to show him.
As part of this annual ritual, I was going through kitchen drawers. I haven’t tackled the “junk” drawer yet. That’s usually last on my list. But I got to my pile of potholders and I have a quandary. See these pictures?
On the left is one of the lovely new potholders I bought…about 5 years ago…and have never used. Below? Good old tried and true. I’ve probably had this potholder for 20 years. Doesn’t the faded blue and rose heart date it? It’s my favorite and the first one I reach for. Food spills? No problem. Just toss it in the washer.
I’ve never used my shiny new ones and I wondering if it’s time. After all, it has been several years since I bought them. Is it time to retire old faithful?
Hmmmm. I guess I’ll have to think about it. In the meantime, the junk drawer is calling my name.
Happy Spring…Cleaning, everyone!
