Either I'm Nesting, Or I'm Trying to Convince Myself That If I Nest, Then I'll Labor

In the last two days, I’ve accomplished the following:
  • Cleaned out my front porch. Meaning, emptied it, washed all surfaces, washed the furniture and cushions that go in it, vacuumed the rugs, and reassembled it.
  • Organized and vacuumed Shef’s play room.
  • Taken four bags of books and a bag of clothes to the Good Will.
  • Washed every part of my refrigerator and thrown away all old and/or questionable items.
  • Cleaned out my lazy susan and thrown away all old and/or questionable items. Also, I vacuumed the shelves and wiped them down with a wet rag. Then, I organized the contents according to the following categories: breakfast, rarely-used recipe items, canned goods, and grains.
  • Cleaned out the over-the-stove shelves where I keep all the random cooking crap like oils and vinegars and baking needs. Then, I dug out from the deep storage the containers that are supposed to hold those very baking needs and used them for the purposes which God intended.
  • And then, finally, I made Jello. Because I found some deep in the lazy susan, and I’ve never made it before. I do know the stories about the horse hoofs, and I really don’t want to talk about it.

What kind of jello?

KC said...

it was strawberry. It's especially good with whipped cream and real strawberries on top.

I thought jello was swine hooves. Am I missing some horse hoof horror story?
