The Cupboard was Bare!

Posted by Sharkey

The other day Franny and I noticed that there were many bins of dry food sitting outside the flower room.  Then we noticed that the pantry in there was empty.  It became obvious that the pantry was being relocated, but we don’t know why.  Something big must be happening and when it does, we’ll be sure to blog about it.

Francesca!  Look at all of these bins of food!  What's going on with this stuff?

I'm not sure, Sharkey, but it looks like it may have come from the pantry in the flower room.  Let's check it out.

Oh what a shame.  This reminds me of Old Mother Hubbard who went to the cupboard to get her poor dog a bone.  But when she got there, the cupboard was bare and so the poor dog had none.

It was so organized!  Every shelf is P-touched, but how will they remember what went where?

Don't worry Sharkey, I detect a system in place - Martha's favorite post-it notes with numbers on them.

I must say, Martha keeps some very interesting dry foods in that pantry.

I know what soba noodles are, but what is mugwort leaf?  Maybe it's what makes the noodles green.

The guys have arrived to move the pantry.  They know to be careful when moving furniture.  Packing blankets are a safe way to go.

Sharkey, that thing looks heavy!  I'm just going to look the other way in hopes that they don't notice me and ask me to help.

And I am going to look really, really tired so they don't ask me either!

Wow! Look at that big, empty space!  I wonder what's going there now?  I'm sure we'll find out soon enough!  Keep you posted.

    It looks to me like Martha is getting a new cabinet for the pantry area. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished.

    My mom has a jar of Grandma's mole asses in our cupboard as well I can't imagine eating a mole ass I hope she never made me anything with that ingredient. I guess it's better than Grandma's ass in the jar. I'll also make sure I never open the jar and take a sniff - YUK!!!

    Gracyn my daddy is feeling a little stronger every day thank you for asking. His lungs are in pretty bad shape thanks to cigarettes and his nasty habit. He goes to the doctor who checks his lungs on Tuesday so we'll find out more then. The good thing is that he has not smoked in a week. I told him if he does I'm going to bite him and pee on his feet so I think he is scared ;)

    Well the weekend is here and I'm really looking forward to spending lots of time with mom and dad. Mom's playing golf Saturday but promised me she'll spend quality time with us kids all day Sunday. I think we're going to bake dog treats - YUMMY!!!

    Have a nice weekend everyone.

  • hey I got some of those Mol-asses...he he

    good stuff in the pantry!

    well girls this might be my last posting of a comment, unfortunately your system just does not allow me to post easily anymore, I'm always having to write to "community for help" and it's getting old...so much work when I just don't have the time...and believe me I make time for 'the Daily Wag' read.

    I got Malware infected and believe it was the PET pop-ups from here,(could not get rid of them,) had the computer fixed and use Firefox hoping for the better.

    if it doesn't get straightened out...well, I will miss being part of this, it was my "Morning Joy"

    Love you sweet pups and the rest of the menagerie...

  • Hello Ladies,
    It looks like Mama Martha is getting even better organized with a new cupboard. If that is possible. My Mom uses that p-touch thing after seeing your Mom use it. She has everything in her studio organized. It looks like it is nice weather there for you girls. Here in Colorado we are due to get rain. I would rather have that any day than those 95 degree days.
    Zoe, I asked you a couple days ago if your Mom had made you any Italian dog biscuits yet. Because in Italy they are called Biscotti. They are hard, but really tastey. And keep taking good care of your Dad.
    Have a great weekend everyone.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • LOL - love the Mole Asses comment!

  • Hi Basil
    No she hasn't cooked me any Italian Biscotti yet maybe we'll make them Sunday. Mom was really busy when she got home between catching up at work, getting unpacked and the house in order then dad got sick I'm lucky I got fed!!! Things seem to be getting back to normal now.

    Have a good weekend.

  • I just love the way you two suddenly became "occupied" and "tired" when it was time for the heavy lifting. :wink:

    I don't know about that Grandma's Mole Asses - seems if she's putting mole asses in jars who knows what else she's up to if you ask me.

    Anyone on here also on Facebook and is a fan of Martha's? You should check out a posting from yesterday. It's a spotlight on French Bulldogs and the dog in the thumbnail is Zoe! :smile: I thought that was pretty cool.

    Everyone have a great weekend! :lol:

  • Hi there,

    I know this blog post is about Sharkey and Francesca, but I was thinking about GK earlier today. Have you heard of the panda dogs? They're all the rage in China and Japan right now. I wonder if Martha would be interested in this. Here's a link to a gallery of pictures: http://abcnews.go.com/International/slideshow/china-painted-dogs-10864603

    I think GK would be a great candidate.

    Sincerely,

    N

  • Hi Sweeties,
    I'm curious too so I'll be looking for your follow-up blog. That was pretty clever the way you fooled the movers by looking the other way and acting tired. That wouldn't work for me because I'm the only mover of things in my household! Have a nice weekend with the big guy G.K., maybe chase some squirrels!

  • Hi Girl Friends & G.K., I know how you feel about changes in anything in the house or outside for that matter. Everytime my Mom moves anything, I have to smell the area and wonder what she is doing. It always takes time to get used to 'new items' anywhere. Be glad to hear what she is going to put in that empty area. Have a great weekend and keep busy while Martha is in Montreal. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: That is really funny. My momma saw that picture of Mole Asses and nearly fell out of her chair. It's so funny, I can hardly stand it she said. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I don't know what Mole Asses are. Momma said she has a jar of it in the frig and she said she was going to put just a bit in my supper tonight. Found out she was joking. Well, funny, funny, HAHA-Hmmmp!

    Sorry I am posting so late, but momma was at the store to buy food cause it is going to be much too hot tomorrow and Sunday. She said with the humidity it will feel like 100 degrees. There she goes with the degree thing again. I don't understand it.

    Zoe - I'm glad your daddy is stronger today. You probably did scare him. Great idea, though. Another scary thought is give him some Mole Asses. Ugh!

    Time for my dinner. Happy weekend everyone. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Wow!!! My picture made it to Martha's facebook page I feel so special :)

    Mom and I were so excited to see my cute face!!!
