Clean Towel Wednesday and Alphabetizing the Spices


My husband just came in and excitedly said, “I’ve changed the towels tonight.”

No response while I hovered over my computer.

“You know tomorrow is Clean Towel Wednesday, right?”

Oh, that’s right. We celebrate different holidays these days.

I had my own moment today, as well.

“I’m going to alphabetize the spice cabinet,” I announced after dinner.

And that’s what I did.

We have too much time on our hands.

This is only about half of the spice jars
Yes, I did start the alphabet at the bottom because all our favorites start with C. (My husband insists the peanut butter stays here too!)

  1. How funny! We do have to look a little harder these days to have something to celebrate. It is amazing how much the little things give us such joy now.


  2. Does he consider peanut butter a spice? I would never bother to alphabetize my spices because I know my husband wouldn’t be able to keep with the scheme. I do envy the cupboard though!


    1. Good question. I am not sure he considers it a spice, as much as it has been a marriage-long habit of keeping it close and convenient. He is a peanut butter guy, so he probably didn’t want to switch his habit of going right there to get it.He did let me move it up a shelf though.

      Really, who knows if I will even be able to keep up with this scheme! It’s part of my #geniushourathome project with my students! Thanks for stopping by.


  3. Love it! I hear that some teachers (who teach at private schools here in the U.S.) are having classes all day online with their students – especially at the High School level. I don’t know if my back or my head could do that. We have always had “clean sheet Mondays,” and “clean towel Tuesday and Fridays.” 😉


    1. Joy, that is crazy, isn’t it? I think spending too much time on line is not good for teachers or students. One of my best lessons this week was spending an hour on the phone with a little guy who was getting lost in his assignments. We caught up in a big way in just one hour. I was his transcriber, and he told me to written assignments. I wrote down his words, and now he is ready to go to the next step with our genius hour project.
