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.”

Ah, the classic, just tweaked a little.

 

How exciting is that?????

I’m gonna check into this!!

 

Go check out this post:

“‘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:

Alright, now we’re in the midst of Seven Seconds Scullery Scaffolding.         What in the world does scaffolding have to do with the Scullery??         Well, here’s my take on it.     Google defines it as “a temporary structure on the outside of a building, made usually of wooden planks and metal poles, used by workers while building, repairing, or cleaning the building.”         So, I’m taking the cleaning part, and applying it to the fridge.           Got it?      No, not that it matters to you.

So, the inside of the fridge is a fright!!

This is the top shelf.      Can you see those open cans??      Look behind the pie!

                                                            Yeah, had to trash those!

And later, I found out, thanks to PP’s discriminating taste buds, that the milk was rotten too.       Sorry, baby!       Omie didn’t mean to!

     (If you squint, can’t you see how the wire shelves look like scaffolding??)

Second shelf, the 2 dozen eggs that I bought for DD2’s birthday breakfast.       On Feb 23.      At least it was 2017!!       And at least 1 of the yogurt boxes was completely empty.      Huh.         And more open cans.        Can you say yuck!!          I thought ya could!

The 3rd shelf.        Green eggs, (I’m sure by now)   and ham.     (At least I think that’s ham, all bundled up under there.      Probably it’s green by now too.)          And that yogurt is at least 7 months old.       Another toss without opening.

slob, humor, icky shelf

Close up of ickiness.

Yay!     At least 2 cleared, if not clean, surfaces!         Oopsie!      That cantaloupe is way past it’s prime.     Unless old as the hills is prime time now.       Poor PP, never got her ‘loupe.

Why do I have 2 lemons, for goodness’ sake??         I don’t even remember buying 1!     And I sure don’t remember using it!        But, it was amusing when PP opened it, and tried to drink it!       Bless her little heart!!          Oh, since I don’t remember which one it was, guess I better ditch both then.         Probably for the best!       And sadly, that Fanta is not peach.         It’s mango.      What a nasty trick to pull!

slob, humor, rotten food

All this goodness (note the sarcasm) that I was “shelf”ishly keeping all for myself!     

slob, humor, dehydrated mandarin oranges

I’ve never seen flat mandarin oranges before…

I didn’t even bother recycling those cans.      They just all went to the trash.       I do recycle, but I have my limit!

slob, humor, empty box

The aforementioned empty box. Recycled, of course.

The mac n cheese didn’t look so, so bad, in the first pic, so I had to dump it out some.        Now you can see the true depth of the nastiness!

slob, humor, moldy can o' food

You can see the nastiness of this moldy mac n cheese, even with your eyes closed!

     Yeah, the red stuff is cranberry sauce, from Thanksgiving.       (I’m thinking about just chunking those 3, without even opening them.)       Wise move, I’m sure!

So, that took the whole 15 min.      Pulling it all out, and dumping it.       I’m still dithering about the 3 plastic containers.


But, since a sweet lady at my church just gave me new ones last Sunday, I think I can probably just let them go….


So far 3 hrs 17 min Scullery Time, plus today’s 15, equals:  3 hrs 32 min  

 House Time was 5 hrs 28 min.    Adding today’s 15 , Total House Time: 5 hrs 43 min

Wow, this scaffolding sure needs more support!

Merry March Monday Memes

Hey, here we are in March, on a Monday, being merry, (hopefully!) enjoying our memes!

Apparently this is good parenting.       Glad I’m my own boss now!!

Ice cream bars for all, I say!!

 

Faulty Faucet

That’s not supposed to look like that!!

                                                                                                                Or that:

slob, humor, faulty faucet

It’s definitely not supposed to do that!!      That is the closed position!!       Supposedly!

That looks really bad!!

This is what it’s supposed to look like!       (When it’s off!)

slob, humor faucet   (Without that broken piece in the background, of course!)

Now whattam I gonna do????        Well, I guess you’ll have to fix it!         But I don’t wanna fix it, I wanna replace it!        Well, do that then!            But I don’t wanna do that, until I can get the purple sink installed!         Well, do that then!         But, I can’t, until I get the new cabinet, that fits the sink!        Well, do that then!          But, I can’t until I have some more money!     Remember those pesky credit cards that I ran up last year???         Yeah.           Well, sadly for me, now the piper wants his pay!

Ok, so whatta ya gonna do now then??         I suppose skipping the hand washing after flushing is NOT an option??        That would be a big N O!!            I guess you’ll have to use the hot water then.        And PP will never trust me again, if I tell her use the hot water, and it burns her hands!!        I’ve been telling her for almost 2 years to NOT use the hot!!

So, is washing your hands in the tub an option??        No, not really.       It is W A Y too far to bend down, to wash my hands, every time I go potty!!       Besides, those knobs are ridged, and faulty too, so they leak.     So, when I get them almost closed, after bath time, I don’t wanna mess!      And the ridges hurt my tender, widdle hands.         Awwwww, poor baby!

Well, I don’t know what ta tell ya.     You’ve shot down every suggestion I have.        The only other thing I can say is, Hold it till ya get to SF’s!!

NOPE!!     Not happening either!       What did people do before running water??        You mean how did they wash after coming outta the outhouse??       Yeah, how?        How do I know!!

Ok, ok, back to the drawing board.

Aha!       Hand sanitizer!       It’s not a perfect solution, but I think we can make it work.

slob, humor, green purellThere ya go!         Oh good grief!       Why would you even mention green Purell?????       Do you not know me at ALL????

(grumble, grumble)      Fine!       Picky!             slob, humor, white purell Seriously??      In the whole wide world web, you couldn’t find ANY purple sanitizer??

(grumble, grumble, grumble)           If you don’t like this one, ya can go fetch it yourself!

 

slob, humor, purple sanitizer  What’s not to like??                Groan

Okay, folks, I think we have it figured out now.       Thanks for your patience!          Potty trips may be resumed now!

The faulty faucet is on it’s way out the door, tho!

 

GF Guff

Need: slob, humor, canola spray To spray in the slob, humor, small crock pot

 Also required:slob, humor, GF brownie mix

slob, humor, purple can opener

MUST be purple. No other color will work in this recipe.

 For the slob, humor, can o' pumpkin

Then!!  The fun part begins!

slob, humor, GF brownie mix

Will it taste good???      Has to!!    It’s chocolate!!      But, will I taste the pumpkin??     Who cares!!         It’s chocolate!!       But, what if I don’t like chocolate flavored pumpkin???     Too bad, so sad!!      It’s chocolate!     Also, it’s GF, so you’ll eat it, and you’ll LIKE it!!      Got it??          Yes, ma’am.

I mixed, and mixed, and mi… JK!!      I only mixed it 2x!       But I could still see orange!!               I didn’t see you doing any mixing, so can it!     (“Can” it!      Bwahahaha!     I crack myself up!)

Anyways, so I dumped it into the crock, and put it on high for 3 hours, and went away.     Mmmmm, I could just taste all that chocolately goodness!!

After 3 hours, long, hungry hours, I came back, lifted the lid, and it wasn’t cooked!      What in the Sam Hill??      Did this stupid crock croak on me??

After a very brief investigation, the culprit was found.

slob, humor, not plugged in      Yeah, I had plugged in the toaster, not the crock.

Facepalm.

WHY, oh WHY does this always happen to me???         The cooking gene skipped me entirely!!        But!     I’m determined to persevere!

So, I made brownies in a mug, every day for 5 days!   HA!      Take that, “not a cook” me!

Whaddya mean, where’s the pix??      In my tummy!!          Who’s got time to take pix when there’s hot brownies waiting to be smothered in vanilla ice cream??

Ain’t it enough that I adapted quickly to the non-cooked mess, and made brownies in a mug, without having to photograph every step too??

Oh ok, babies, here’s a pic for ya whiners.

slob, humor, ice cream

(Whaddya mean, where’s the GF brownie???       I done tole you- in ma belly!!)

Happy now??        No??        Awww, sorry.       Go have an ice cream bar, and cheer up!

I sure am!!    (Happy, that is.)    I can now make instant, well ok, almost instant brownies, (2 and 1/2 minutes) any time!!          YAY!!!

Doing my happy, GF brownie in a mug dance!!

slob, humor, happy dance   (Stop action style!)

Paper Purgathon- Prep

Today I’m gonna totally cheat, and count this for both the Purgathon series,

slob, humor, challenge

and the Seven Seconds Scullery series, because it’s paper purging, in the kitchen.                Is that cheating??            Multi-tasking?         Or just wise time management??

Here’s the hot spot for today.  

slob, humor, prep purge slob, humor, prep purge

15 minutes on the timer, GO!

slob, humor, bath bombs     Since these were right on top, I picked them up first.    Now, a dilemma.      My mentor, Dana, sez take stuff to where it belongs, right now!    But, I’m lazy, soooo I doan wanna do that!!       (But, she totally has a good reason for it.      It eliminates making a bigger mess.)         So, do I listen to her, and do it the right Dana way, or make a pile, and take all the like things together later?        To my surprise, I decided to listen for once, and took them to the bathroom right away.

slob, humor, bath bombs in bathroom      But wait a minute!!        Why did you have bath bombs on your microwave to begin with??          Well, because DD1 made them in a craft class, on her birthday, and she doesn’t have a bath tub.       That still doesn’t explain the “on the microwave” part.        Because it’s right by the door, duh!        She may or may not have inherited a dab bit of my lazy bones.

Next!

Extra pill box, that I gave to Mama, and boomeranged right back.         And in the donate box it went!       YAY- me!!

PP’s day care papers.       (Sometimes those people worry me.      Look at how close in size the “small” and “large” ovals are!!         Besides they’ve spelt her name 4 or 5 different (Wrong) ways now.      And completely re-named PPJr.       Happily, DD1 likes the new name, and is calling her that now, as a nickname!       Poor girl is gonna be so confused….)   Hung on the walls in her room.

I need to learn some new discipline techniques!       Dealing with a strong willed child isn’t easy!          But, it was easy to know right where the book went!

slob, humor, recycling       Confession- I did NOT take these straight to recycling.    I waited till I was going out the door.       I only go up or down my outside steps ONE time!     (at the time, at least.)

Grandmama gave PP the bracelet.        Considering it’s giraffes, I was shocked she let go of it!         Banished to a shelf in girls’ room.       The pink bone(?) thingy, file 13, don’t pass go.

slob, humor, mid process   Mid process.


slob, humor, papers, pix    Pile o’ papers moved to recliner, to sort later.     I know, I know, I disobeyed Dana’s rule.       (Have I ever mentioned I’m a rule rebel??)

                The “fine china” went in the cupboard.

Aha!      So THAT’s where that was hiding!!

slob, humor, free frostys tag!!

FREE Jr Frostys for a year! Yeah, baby!!

By this time, the 15 minutes were up.      Here’s the end results.      (Except I did take the Christmas stuff to its bin, when I went out the door finally.)

slob, humor, end results

And the reason the roach motels are still there:  I knew it would be an long, involved process, setting them up, and replacing all the full ones, with these new ones.       So, just better to leave it for another day.


I’m as happy as can be with the way that spot looks!!         Now, the REAL work begins, of keeping it clear like that!!!        (It’s such a handy spot to set stuff down, just inside the door!!) 

So that’s 15 more minutes added to the SS Scullery.     Total so far: 2 hours, 40 minutes.
