As many of you know, I have a pretty in depth "bucket list". My buckets have socks, soap, pasta, laundry detergent and Ham radio equipment in them. Not to mention beans, boots and bag balm. I have, however, recently experienced the great delight of barrels. Not that buckets have lost their appeal - not at all. But barrels, now there is something to really crow about! No longer do I have to stack 15 buckets of hard white wheat on the shelf, I can just fill a barrel to overflowing! That leaves by buckets to tend to supplies that require less space such as baking powder and Italian seasoning.
My wonderful Sir Knight is always thinking of me. Yesterday, he came home from work bearing gifts. Some might think flowers or candy or Chinese take-out, but no, he brought barrels!
I was so excited! Flowers wilt, candy goes straight to my hips and I have never really been that fond of Chinese take-out - but barrels! Sir Knight really knows the way to a damsel's heart.
Now comes the hard part. Do I start a powdered milk barrel or add a rice barrel? Should I fill one with Kamut? Or maybe Spelt would be better! Choices, choices. What's a girl to do?
