Clump #193: Clean out refrigerator and clear out son’s room for company.
I guess it’s been a while since I cleaned out the far reaches of our refrigerator. I had to make room for the influx of holiday food.
There was a healthy debate in our house about whether this photo was too disgusting for publication. Cruella De Vil (just checked the spelling … I was guessing Deville, and realize it spells devil) would not have had to chase around 101 dalmatians for exotic fur if she had a little leftover hummus:
Greek yogurt has turned kind of a beautiful shade of sea green … okay, enough with the gross-out shots.
All cleaned out and ready for recycling:
Meanwhile, company is coming and the piles in our son’s room were still splayed about. I sent them back into his closet, and it actually looks much better. Progress! Believe me, it truly is.
And now for some eye-cleansing photos of two orchids getting watered. I did odd jobs for a good friend several years ago and one of the jobs was watering her plants. For a while I was killing her orchids, until I learned to put them in a bowl of water, allowing them to draw the water up, then let them drain in the sink for a while. Really easy.
She gave me this one as a reward:
The other one was bought for her memorial service by a dear friend when she died, who then gave it to me.
What do you know? Devil and angel in the same post.
