I don't know what to put up there. Right now it's less than half full of drink mixers, liqueurs, wine, and whiskey and spiced something. I put the cooking wine-burgundy near the front for when I cook with it. What can I put up there? What do you put on that shelf that is too high to reach without a chair?
I also put my paper towels on top of the cupboards, out of reach. Also my crock pot, an electric frying pan, wine glasses go on the top shelf, flour sifter, pressure cooker. Things that don't get used every day. Lucky for me, my 6'3 bf can reach up there for the heavy stuff, and I can hop up on the counter for the lighter stuff. I also have a little step stool for the top shelf in the cupboards, and for feeding the fish lol. I have a grabber/reached too that I never seem to use. I need a more convenient spot for it. Used to use it all the time when I lived with my parents.

I am sitting here playing on the 'puter and look at the clock. Good grief ! have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I should try to get some sleep, but I m wide awake. They are going to map my eyes tomorrow and the surgey on my left eye is June 14th. June is going to be a really busymonth fr me. Sonargrams o my stomach and neck, surgery, an who knows what else. I will get the full list tomorrow when I go to Winthrop.

I just finished making and decorating 2 dozen cupcakes to take for the last day of my pain management group. They are chocolate cake with piped peppermint buttercream and I made little mortar boards for the "students" and apples for the staff. I took pictures and as soon as I can figure how to upload from my new phone, I will post them!

It was fun to get back at it.

Now it is off to bed as it is 10:30 and 5:30 comes rather quickly! I can't believe this is the last day!

Addie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know too well the overwhelming feeling of having more than one health matter going on at once. You are a strong lady and you have family and your DC family here to encourage you. Get a good rest.

Laurie

If that were me, I'd be blaming Rocky.
