SS Scullery Scrapings, Scobblelotcher – todays’s scullery scrapings.

Are we done yet??           Seriously!!           I’m tired of this!         Don’t worry, they are too!     Thanks a whole heaping lot!

Okay, we’re still on the dining room table, sigh.       We left it looking like this.

slob, humor, less mess

Looking good! Right??

15 minutes, and I had worked these wonders:

Folded down 1 side of table!!      Swept that part of floor!      Deposited sweepings in trash!!

   Had emptied the chairs!!            Found a long lost sock!

Recycled empty boxes!!!!         (Boy, will Sweet Friend be mad!!      Empty boxes are almost sacred to him!      They are NOT to be thrown out until that item has gone into the trash!)

slob, humor, almost empty table

Almost empty, now!

That was 1 busy 15 minutes!!     Just gotta hang up pic in girls’ room, and decide where to put the craft box.       If I time that last part, it will take nearly 24 hours, all by itself!      I need ideas of where to stash it!!        Please help!

At least I’m almost done with the table, now!       Right??


Scullery time, after today: 4 hr 17 min

Total House Time after Today: 6 hr 28 min

When I hit the 7 hour mark, can  I just shout “Done!”   and leave it??

Toilegami Town

 

My friend, Molly, from Shallow Reflections has taken up a new hobby!!      It sounds so enticing, I just might try it too!!

“Learning a new skill: We researched ‘hotel toilet paper-folding’ and realized there are many variations besides the simple ‘V’ shape. Did you know there is an art called ‘toilet paper origami’ AKA ‘toilegami?’ By reviewing photos and YouTube videos we were able to learn a new skill while simultaneously creating the illusion of a spotless hotel bathroom.”

slob, humor, V pleated fold

Ah, the classic, just tweaked a little.

 

How exciting is that?????

I’m gonna check into this!!

 

Go check out this post:

https://paper-crafts.knoji.com/how-to-amuse-your-guests-with-toilegami/

“‘Toilegami’ actually is the origami-style folding of toilet paper. Toilet paper origami is practiced in many hotels worldwide. You can also amuse and greet your guests with this amazing origami style. This post offers enough online resources to start making basic toilet origami folds. Learn some basic and interesting facts about toilegami and start folding toilet paper to have fun.”

One of the fun facts:

  • The Tickle Pink Inn, a motel in Carmel Highlands, California, folds the ends of its toilet paper into fan-like designs, mirroring the folds of its bathroom washcloths.

 

 

 

Not the Tickle Pink Inn, even tho it is pink:

slob, humor, toilegami

Isn’t that the most gorgeous tp rose you’re ever seen in your life??

 

Toilet paper folding or toilegami has attracted the attention of observers within the hotel industry and beyond it.”

I’m 5 hrs, 43 minutes in, and I’m still stuck between Days 1 & 2!      Yikes!

I know I’m probably confusing you, by working on the dining table, then the refridge, now back to the table.        Please bear with me!        (PS, just remember, I finally did Komplish Kim’s kwilt!!)

Back to what we’re doing.

slob, humor, messy glittery, gluey mess

Try, try again.

Believe it or not, I spent the first 13 min scraping glitter, and glue off the table.        You might have the mistaken notion that cleaning is not technically de-cluttering.          Just think about it, I’m getting rid of unwanted, unnecessary, and unusable stuff, tiny as it is!     Sounds like de-cluttering to me!

And just so you know, a blunt tip popsicle stick is NOT the most helpful tool, for scraping g & g.

slob, humor, cleaning with popsicle stick

Sticking it to the table.

Duh!        Besides, God created thumbnails first!

slob, humor, cleaning

Swishy, swashy

Clean table-  aahhhh!            So satisfying!          

slob, humor, nice clean table

Niiiice!

I even got rid of those hearts!         (Remember how I just ignored them last time?       Cookie Chaos Calmed.)        

It’s looking so good, I went ahead and restarted the timer!      

Resurrection Sunday fancy:  Well, it is coming up….

slob, humor, girls' pretty headband

So pretty in pink!

Now, if only I could convince either of the girls to wear it!        They are both firm believers that bare (head) is better!

More Christmas:       Shock, shock, NOT!

slob, humor, Christmas still!!

Still in the clutches of Christmas….

More stuff….

Put it away.

And lookee here.    What happens when you wear your glasses on the back of your head, then accidentally tilt backwards, just a little…

slob, humor, glasses in tank

It could happen to anyone, right??                        [crickets ]                        Surely I’m not the only one who’s ever had it happen, am I??              [louder crickets]

At least they didn’t fall into the business end!!          SO.VERY.THANKFUL!!

thankful face

Back to the table:  it looks lots better.         And now you can really tell I’m making a dent in it!

slob, humor, less mess

Looking good! Right??

Well, maybe ya can’t tell, but I am!!

Adding today’s 30= 4 hrs 2 min

Total  House Time Thus Far: 6 hrs 13 min               Since it’s almost 7 hours, I’m nearly done, right???

Patrick’s Page

This was my St Patrick’s Day post from 2015.        Wearing O’ the Green.

So, this year I thought I’d research it a tiny bit more.         Here’s what I learned.

From the website: http://www.christianitytoday.com/history/2008/august/real-st-patrick.html

slob, humor, St Patrick

The “Real St. Patrick”

“Patrick isn’t really a Saint with a capital S, having never been officially canonized by Rome. And Patrick couldn’t have driven the snakes out of Ireland because there were never any snakes there to begin with.”

“Though he was not solely responsible for converting the island, Patrick was quite successful. He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”

 

But, he DID use the shamrock to explain the Trinity, right??

Well, according to this website, no.     It was all just legends.

http://catholichotdish.com/the-pastors-page/saint-patrick-the-shamrock-and-the-trinity/

“There are several popular legends about how St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the mystery of the Trinity.”

Being as how I wasn’t there, I am not gonna argue the point.      I do think it’s a great illustration!

Alright, now on to my St Patrick’s Day stuff.           You already saw my mantel.

slob, humor, St Pat's Day shelf   From Seven Seconds Scullery Scape.

Now, here’s my porch door, outside.   

slob, humor, door shamrocks             slob, humor, door shamrocks  Porch door inside.

   

                                  Front door, outside.                       Front door, inside.                                              

And I also put one on Vanronica’s window, PP’s side.    And immediately she said “Wheah’s baby _____(PPJr)’s??”         Bless her heart, for being so sweet to her baby sister!!         (Now, I gotta go take one down off the mantel, and tape it to the baby’s side!!)                                   

  Here’s some funny stuff I saw at the store.

I want these tights!!     Of course, I’d have to wear them on my arms…..                                       And the white fuzzy things are leg warmers!!!     LOL

Ok, so that’s all the green I got going on today.
