This week, with some help, I made great progress on one of my brand-new goals. This one:
De-clutter my desk, bookshelves, and filing cabinets. This includes Quester’s creation of a new bookshelf in the upstairs hallway. Make the space more user-friendly so I’m more likely to use it.
Quester built an awesome new customized pine bookshelf, floor to ceiling, in the upstairs hallway, making that area a new little library nook. This also lifts the total number of bookshelves in our home to 12. Heh heh.
Here’s a picture. Note that we have yet to finish painting that whole area and doing some trim work. Yeah, maybe a bit backwards, but I needed the shelf space!
I’ve been categorizing as I go, rearranging a bunch of shelves. This new library nook is ALL fiction. It’s accompanied by a smaller shelf, now moved to the other side of the bathroom door, that used to be where the new one was. That one all young-adult fiction. I couldn’t get a good picture of it, though, because of the glare from the spotlight-style lights.
See, I’m happy as a bookworm in a new section of her home library!
And, furthermore, the new book nook is cat-approved, by Sir Percy.
I’m still in the process of categorizing a couple of other major bookshelves, including the one in my room that helped precipitate the whole project. More to come on that this week. Oh, and I weeded out some books we don’t need, duplicates and ones we didn’t feel we wanted to keep, so they’re on their way to the thrift shop to be shared with other readers.
What else have I been up to? Well, I’m now on page 155 of 213 on my read-through and note-taking for our novel. With this post, I’m up to date with blogging for the week (for the first time in forever). Yay! And I submitted a guest post to the Moon Books blog for this month. I started looking into CreateSpace for getting hard copies of Cultivating Self Love; I had another reader request for it this week, which gave me the motivation.
My wellness practices are going along swimmingly. I did yoga several times, along with my other practices. Drum practice is going well, and during today’s rehearsal I got a couple new things to be working on. I had quite a bit of outdoor time this week, it being sunny and warmer. It feels so good, and lifts my spirits and energy level.
Quite a good week, I’d say!
