New World Order

The maid has now performed her quarterly re-arrangement of the kitchen shelves. This time, the guiding principle seems to have been Materials From Which Containers Are Made, so now all the things in glass bottles (cumin seeds, gin, dog's eardrops) are mixed together in one section, while plastics (drain cleaner, cayenne pepper, squeezy bear-shaped honey dispenser) are in another, paper (cookbooks, packages of yeast, toaster-oven user's manual) in another, etc. Completely unnecessary, borderline insane, but, in its own way, kind of impressive.

What I actually find equally impressive is that you still have your toaster oven user's guide.....

Well, it's only two weeks old, and seems like a massive fire hazard, so it made sense to hold onto it for a while.

We've got 2 Uzbek girls I call in if we've got company coming. They're great for (my) moral support & motivation, since I work *with* them. But indeed, there are always numerous things that we find relocated (sometimes weeks) after they've been here. Both are really good people, so I don't mind paying them the high rate these folks get around here.

Glad the cat's okay ~ !
