Plop


Today in my garden.

I'm off to visit my sister in Kent. She is expert at unpacking, discarding, and repacking. I'll come back like a pristine cupboard: no stale spices, festering yeasts, or sticky rings from last year's jam.

Sounds terrible. I rather enjoy some reuse in my cupboard. This rose from your garden however is something else. Perfect in its disorganised beauty.

Enjoy your holiday. What are sisters for, other than to transform us in some way?

The Weaver of Grass said...

Everyone needs a sister like that to go through one's excess baggage now and again. Enjoy!

Lovely photo Eryl. If you go near give my love to Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.
Why are you packing spices yeasts and jams? I'm just packing lovely bluberry jam to take to the girls and it's so heavy.

Maybe this time you'll transform your sister into a delightful mess instead.

I'm sure you'll feel better, free of the festering yeasts...

Have a lovely trip!

A pristine cupboard? Does anyone have such a thing? Surely kitchen cupboards are always full of mysterious unlabelled jars, half-consumed this and that, miscellaneous spillages, and forgotten packages long past their best-by date?

I've just discovered a burst tin in my cupboard.

Have a good trip xx

The family organizer--I hope your visit goes well.

The World According To Me said...

I hope you enjoy your visit to England's garden (I believe that's what they call Kent). Be sure to delve in her cupboards too.

Meri said...

Alas, my organizer's husband got a new job and they moved, all in a space of the time I was at a writing conference. So I've got to slog on alone (boo hoo).

Golden West said...

It can be liberating to get organized! So says one who lives in happy chaos...

Kass said...

What a metaphorically perfect post from the kitchen bitch.

Leni Qinan said...

A bit of organisation is great from time to time... especially if you don't have to do it yourself.
I hope you enjoy the days with your sister.

Beautiful rose in your garden!

Hello everyone, got home late Friday and had a busy weekend at the family paintball site. Sister visiting has got to be one of the best possible activities, better than meditation or even eating cake!

Thank you all for the lovely comments, I would reply in my usual way but am too knackered. Will do a new 'Moth' post this week, sometime. XXX

Hey: people pay good money for sticky rings.

p.s. Why is that when I look at your profile on Blogger, your site doesn't come up?

Eryl Shields said...

I've heard about those people, maybe I'm wasting a commercial opportunity.

I'll have a look at my settings because I have no idea what the answer to your question might be.
