Mysteries – Solved and Unsolved

This time of year I like to get caught up on cleaning and organizing. After all, it’s not like I want to be outside!

I started with a couple of drawers that hadn’t been touched since we moved in almost two years and 11 months ago. After all was said and done, I was left with a couple of random items.

I’m SO glad I found THIS! This is what I’m going to be looking for a year from now. It will be the key component to some electronic device that I cannot name at this time because it’s not obvious (at least to me) what it is used for.

Then I found these…

Now, I’ve wanted to call people “knobs” before, but now I can actually hand one to them and say “Here knob!” Again, very sturdy and appear to be key in whatever their original function may be. If only I knew what that was.

Finally – I was RELIEVED to have found this. Some of you know I’ve lost a couple, and I’m sure I’ll need to find a couple more, but for now, I have one more than I had the day before, so I’m grateful.

Then it was time to move on to cleaning. I’m a bit of a masochist in that I don’t mind that the dogs are in the house. This time of year, it’s brutal though since we literally had two inches of snow yesterday, and today I have two+ acres of mud for them to track inside. Sweeping daily is a necessity because, well, they are Shepherds and that’s how we roll, unless we want to be crushed by tumbleweeds of dog hair the size of compact cars.

I was really frustrated this past week because I was trying to solve an issue. How were paw prints getting on the cupboards, the fridge freezer and the sliding glass doors? It’s not like Roman and Cane are working on Ninja tactics.

Then, I noticed a pattern…

And the mystery was solved.

  1. Lol this is exactly what hubs and I were just doing! Cleared out a bunch of stuff from the office that some was moved from the last house almost 2.5 years ago! We found SO many cords and many got pitched!

    Feels good 🙂

    Question for you… what did you use to paint your cupboards? I’m really wanting to update our cupboards to get us by some more years before we get new… also when the kids and dog are older ha!

    • We Virgos tend to do better with order!! lol
      I can’t remember the name but we got it a Home Hardware in town, so if you tell them what you are doing with it, I’m sure they’ll know. It was paint and primer all in one. I know I was not about to paint those twice! Good luck!
