Needless to say, I end up with a huge stack of books around my bed... some weeks, I have to literally leap over the stack to get into bed. And not to mention, there's a whole 'nother group of books that I have purchased and are on the reading list, too.... So this is library books and purchased books that I have to leap over. Serious exercise, I tell you.
So, you can imagine that when I came home with a fresh arsenal of books tonight, I finally decided it was time for some organization.
Yes, my friends. That, up there, is maybe two months of accumulating books, library-owned or otherwise.
I decided to categorize by either series, read, reading, or unread.
Below: the series stack. And I'm seriously diggin' the Shadow Children series, so far.
Fresh from the library (mostly). To-read.
Aha! MORE books- and a couple DVDs.
So then I made lists. In my genetically ingrained doctor handwriting.
ACK! MORE BOOKS!
Can't wait to read these, either... :D
Give me about ten minutes of scrambling back and forth and making stacks and putting everything in place.....
And now! Here is what was a mass of chaos, and it now...
A mass of ordered chaos.
With a tissue box on top.
Oh yes, and apparently all the CDs I checked out were blue.
And now the highlight of the evening.....
Us Oregonians are extremely.... interesting... when it comes to weather.
We love it.
We don't get much of it.
I guess there was a commercial that made a joke out of Portlander reactions to snow: like, a single flake floated down, everyone froze for a second, and then freaked out and started scrambling around to prepare like it was a blizzard. And then.... silence. No more snow.
That's us. Half a centimeter of sticking snow, and school's canceled, everybody looks for their sleds and mitten and scarves..... compared to colder, snowier areas, we're ridiculous.
Which is why the snow this evening was such a big deal.
Yup! It snowed.... and it was sticking, too! Bonus!!
Everyone around here was ecstatic: I know because I looked at my mom's Facebook page.
**EDIT: Video will be back later**
So.... what did you lovely people do this evening??
