What Did I Lose First, My Mind or my Extracts?
December 27, 2015 2:40pm CST
While I was packing to move a few months ago, I clearly remember packing up all my spices, herbs and liquid extracts in two small baskets. When I wanted to add some orange extract to a pudding I made earlier today, I went to my cupboard, pulled out all my dried herbs and spices, and realized that all my extracts were missing. I cannot for the life of me imagine where they went. Did I mistakenly discard them, or were they lost somewhere in transit? That's hard to believe, as the basket was full, and I told one of the kids who helped me move some stuff to put it on top of the pile. Now I'm wondering if it didn't get left behind during the move. So I just emailed my former landlady, and she's going to check for me. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but some of those products would be expensive to replace. So if she does find them, that'll be great! (Public Domain Image)

Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Some of those could be expensive to replace. I think I had something similar happen to me. We recently got rid of a lot of stuff due to a bug infestation. I was packing boxes and directing the kids which went out for the charity to pick up and which went to the kitchen and to keep. I think that a box with my beloved old copy of "To Kill a Mockingbird" in it went to the wrong place. Ugh!
