What I did.................

It took me about an hour to achieve this.......what is this?  A clean work surface........something I haven't seen for a long time.  If you want to see the other side of the cabinet or want info about it go to this post.
I spent another hour going through all of the stuff on the cutting table.  It isn't cleaned off by any means but I can cut something there now.  There is a leaf folded down so if I need more space I can raise that.

I also made another batch of fudge and some English toffee squares.  I have company coming today, a reader of my blog  who visits me every year at this time when she is traveling through my area of the country.
