I spent the day taking down Christmas decorations and putting them all away. Started with the outside lights on the railing as soon as I came back from walking. Didn't even make it inside the door first before they were all down. I stepped on a couple of lights and broke them and couldn't get the tiny lights out to replace them so I threw the whole strand right in the garbage. They were very inexpensive anyway and I bought a whole slew of them and had some that I didn't even use this year.
With the tree down and decorations put away, I then vacuumed and dusted and got things looking back to normal. While dusting off the book shelves I decided to rearrange all my books. I had them in alphabetical order in groups of fiction, nonfiction, and children. I mixed them all up together and then put them in alphabetical order. I still have my collection of Bobbsey Twins, Nancy Drew and Honeybunch separate though. I gathered up all my books that I have yet to read and put them all together. I'm really going to try hard to get a lot of them read this year. I just did a quick count and there are 76 of them. That is a crazy number of books to have that haven't been read yet!!! That is one book more than my goal to read for the entire year. I'll be lucky if I read a quarter of them because I'll be at the library most every week too!!
So that's what kept my busy so far today. Now, I'm ready to have a sit down, read a bit until it's time to get supper started.
Hope all is well in your part of the world!
A smile from me to you.
If you want beauty in your life,
you simply have to go outdoors
from time to time.
