Methinks I have alot of books!




Busy, busy weekend rummaging through papers and books and anything else in the basement. While our basement is partially finished, I have been trying to organize my "stuff" in my office area and books was one of them. I got a new large, oak bookcase about a month ago for a good deal and I found that I have more books on gynecology than I ever knew. The good part is I can find them now!!!!

I also put my laptop there and still, still found a box full of very old cross stitching patterns, floss, etc.
After I get all the mountains of paper work off the floor this week, I'll take a pic of the whole area.
Body Guard's "office" is on the other side of the stairway and it's totally not picture taking material at this time! LOL

I definitely got in my exercise today doing laundry and toting papers and books up and down 3 flights of stairs.




Still a mess, but working......




I have 5 bookcases. And they will be full. The good thing about getting the extra large one is that now I'm organizing them by area. I have the most important children's books I treasured reading to my kids on one bookcase now, 2 large ones for GYN/Legal consultant issues, references, and then one smaller one for books of comfort, like Jane Austen and C.S. Lewis.  So far the GYN is winning. ;)

My desk which has been unused now for awhile is now usable and half is cleaned off. Still getting there.
I have a sofa on the other side and a flat screen TV in this "area of the basement" I call my office, where my quiet time is spent too.
This is how I spent my Sunday, organizing papers and books. I hope to get back to stitching soon.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right?
This week has definitely made me start organizing my books and papers and finding a place to write besides wherever in the house.

Hope your Sunday was restful!


The old Singer box to the left will be moved to a roomier place. I have kept alot of my disks in this. I've had it for many years. As an introvert, books are a true love for me. If I'm not stitching, I'm reading.

Thank you for all the comments and participation in the Giveaway. I do appreciate reading them alot!

  1. WOW! Impressive collection of books you have there. I think at one time I had over 1000 books myself, but that has dwindled down considerably (moving around a lot will do that). Now, most of my books are scholarly type books I have used in Undergrad studies and now in Graduate school. Now, if I can only be patient on the upcoming Janet Evanovich releases (3 in the next few months), LOL!

  2. One of the moms in my homeschool group has over 3,000 books! Can you imagine having to come up with shelving for that many? I have two shelves worth and that's enough for me thanks. :) Hope things with the identity theft clears up as quickly as it can be. My cousin has had that happen to her twice!!

  3. Lovely bookcases for your treasured tomes. But if you think that a lot of books you ain't seen nothin'. I swear there isn't a room in my house that doesn't have a book case or two or a huge stack of books. :) Including one room we call the library which has one wall with 9 foot books shelves that I built nyself. :) Oh and they are filled, double rowed and over flowing. LOL
