I FOUND A VINTAGE ROLLING LAUNDRY CART AT THE FLEA MAKRET AND AFTER MANY YEARS OF NOT USING IT I DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO MAKE USE OF IT!
Here’s a little background on my vintage laundry cart: I picked it up at a flea market about 10 years ago and have never found the right place for it. I know the most obvious way to use it is for laundry but it’s been everything from a plant stand to pillow storage. Just this week I decided to use it for what it’s intended. The large wire basket lifts off the top and I can fill it with laundry, plop it in the base, and roll it over to the line on our deck. Well what do you know it works perfectly!
It’s been primer gray all these years but I’m thinking maybe it’s time for a mini paint makeover. I’ll have to look through my spray paint and see what I can come up with. My go to is always back but I’m leaning more towards a green like I have on our kitchen island. What do you think?
After my last post it seemed to be unanimous everyone still is looking forward to reading blogs despite the virus. I’ll have to admit it may become a little less eventful, not as many pretty décor pics, but I will try and fill you in on the simple things I’m doing around the cabin to keep myself busy. I must say I’m very grateful for everything I do have and I hope spending a little time here will get your mind of our nations situation, even for just a little while.
I’m not a TV watcher but I have kept myself occupied with cooking and baking. We are going through more food with everyone being home for 3 meals a day. I’m used to only making one and then I have whatever is left over for lunch the next day.
I’ve made homemade bread, here is my easy recipe, and it’s only 4 ingredients so you shouldn’t have to make a trip to the store for anything. I also baked my hubby’s favorite cookies, oatmeal raisin. This morning I roasted a chicken, one of the meat chickens I raised, and made white chicken chili for dinner and we’ll use the rest for chicken quesadillas sometime during the week. Then I plopped the carcass, spices, and water into the Instantpot to make broth. I’m more mindful of using everything up and not wasting food right now. And of course the never ending pile of laundry that we seem to have in this house.
I know this all seems trivial but it is what my life consists of right now. I think I’ll keep an ongoing daily diary to let you all know what I’m doing with my time everyday and post it in with my regular Sunday and Wednesday post. I’d really enjoy you leaving a comment and telling me what you’re doing to keep busy. Prayers, Safety, and Good Health to all!
