Disorder annoys my spirit. Except for my computer desk...which doesn't count. But in the rest of the house I like order. I like knowing where something can be found first time. I like knowing where something should be put away. It just makes life easy when things are in order.
Some time back I became disenchanted with my knife drawer. My daughter had gifted me with a wood knife holder and I had placed it in the drawer to safely hold my Sudoku knives which have very, very, very sharp blades. (Sudoku knives are not to be confused with Sudoku puzzles. Just thought I'd mention that.) Please read my post script at the bottom of the page.
Here are the contents of my knife drawer, laid out on the countertop. Who needs so many knives?
It took me all of ten minutes to toss some of the clutter, rearrange the rest, and put it all back together again.
Did I say I dislike disorder? I love "order"! (And now the wood knife holder does its intended job well!)
P.S. No household with accident-prone children should ever have a Sudoku knife.
(Major confession added later...a kind reader very gently pointed out that the knife is a SANtoku. The puzzle is SUdoku. I had googled but google pointed me to a website where the writer also ERRED in calling the knife by its wrong name. I am embarrassed. *silly grin on my face*)
