Sunday projects

In addition to laundry, cleaning and normal maintenance, I tackled two projects I've been putting off for a while:

Project 1: Unlace, wash, dry and relace my running shoes. (Two pairs were used in the Mud Run -- Tucker and I wear the same size -- and the others just needed washing. Also, I don't have 4 active pairs of running shoes. Two pair probably have too many miles on them, but I can't bear to part with them!)

Project 2: Tear the pantry apart to find the source of the tiny moths that have been making a home there over the last few weeks. (The "Leslie Lane" sign was stolen for me by some high school friends, and I've treasured it ever since. And I LOVE our pantry!)

Love all the shoes!

Don't forget to check all the flour, oats, meal foods you have.

I'm with you about the pantry thing...I love mine too ;)

More than likely your moths are coming from some grain product that has gone rancid. whole grains? oatmeal? flour? cornmeal? rice? cereal? I have used food grade diatomaceous earth sprinkled in my grains. I also when I buy any grain product, I put it in the freezer to kill any eggs that are already in the flour. You can take all your flours and put them in the freezer for 3 days. This should kill any eggs in the flour. You cannot see these.

Colette -- Thanks for the suggestions!

Julianne and Matt -- Thanks!

Dee -- I so appreciate your detailed ideas. Turns out the moths were in the (drum roll, please) EGG REPLACER stuff from Bob's Red Mill. Somehow that seems ironic.
