Let it Snow... Outside!

We’ve had a couple of days of snow and ice, and it reminded me of sanding joint compound. We had at least a quarter inch of drywall dust on our floors and on me.

I look like I’ve been caught in a storm or I have an out of control drug problem.

Just dew it…

Michael has a lot of books. I have a lot of books. Together, we will have a library.

When we moved we packed up all of our books and promptly stacked them in the garage until we were ready. I thought we were ready this weekend. We have the office painted, the desk in place and empty shelves.

After moving what seemed like hundreds of boxes (37 to be precise and we still have about 15 more in the garage), I decided to start organizing them. First, fiction and non-fiction… easy peasy. Fiction by author, non-fiction by Dewey. Decimal, of course. If it’s good enough for libraries, it’s good enough for us.

By the end of this project, I’ll never have to use a catalog system to find a book at the library, I’ll just know.
