I moved the bookshelves

IMG_0100.JPGSo after I found this… I told them to put the books away.

So after the umpteenth time of this happening, I moved the bookshelves up the stairs to my bedroom. According to my iPhone I have climbed 25 floors today.

IMG_0105.JPGNow the books are organized by type… though not by author or some series… my husband seems to remind me. I think I’ll leave it like that so my husband has something to tease me about… other than dirty kitchen floors, dirty dishes in the sink and all the other chores that I can’t seem to get done. He’s the best. He doesn’t mention it. 🙂

What I’ve been doing

This summer so far has been lethargic, at least a little bit.  My brothers are here; they’re going to help me move.  They also helped me paint this bookshelf I got for $5 when I was working at Hobby Lobby.  I put another coat on too.  I’ve got some boxes packed.  My apartment looks like a complete wreck.

I finally got a harp for the lamp which I got at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $5ish and the lampshade at Hobby Lobby (I guess the lamp base was broken when they took it out of the box).  I’m taking Statistics this summer because I have to in order to get into the Education program, so I sit there and knit while he lectures.  It’s pretty convenient, so I don’t feel like I’m completely wasting my time.  Last year I tried to make a prayer rope, but when I got to the cross part I couldn’t figure out how to finish it, so I took a break from it, for a year.  Last Sunday I was in Mrs. M’s car and she had one on her rear-view mirror, I asked her how to do it and she told me.  So, I took out my 100 knots and started again.  It looks better this time.
