Home Improvement Time

Dh and I spent the weekend building bookshelves and putting together office cabinets. There is nothing like moving five bookshelves full of books from the first floor to the third one box at a time. I’m sore and bruised. It looks like someone slugged me in the arms. Getting new bookshelves has been a long time coming. We needed them. And bonus, this time they actually match. *g*

We’re trying to get everything arranged for the upcoming visit from the folks. They’re coming over from Scotland and we’re all heading off to Hawaii for a week. If I don’t come back, you all will know where to find me. (wg) So tempting. So very tempting.

I’m still reading slowly through the updated adult urban fantasy. So far so good, but I’m not very far into it. Fingers crossed it still continues to read well.

Picked up my new glasses today. I got dark frames. Going for a studious look. It’s so nice to be able to see again. Novel concept. Now if only my contacts would come in.

The new Ilona Andrews book finally came in. I’ve been waiting patiently for it to arrive. Are you waiting for any books to come out?

Next up for me is the Paperback Writer release, Shadowlight and Charlaine Harris’ Grave Secret.

  1. They’re coming over from Scotland and we’re all heading off to Hawaii for a week.

    Ok, I think I officially hate you…

  2. The bruises, I have them, too. But until we get around to adding another bookcase (so I can undo the doubling up), I’m all done with moving books.

    Hawaii, yay! Which island? I’d stay forever if it was me. Except for the bugs. I don’t like the bugs.

  3. Ooo, Hawaii…I hope you guys have a great time!

    I just put in a big book order, some new, some older books I haven’t read yet…

    Unwind – Neal Shusterman
    Trick of the Light – Rob Thurman
    My Soul To Take – Rachel Vincent
    Destined for an Early Grave – Jeaniene Frost
    Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins
    Doubleblind – Ann Aguirre
    Rosemary and Rue – Seanan McGuire

    Reading Skinwalker right now…took me a bit to get into it, but I’m enjoying it.

  4. I still don’t have On the Edge. Boohoo. Stalking bookstores and Walmart will continue until it is mine.

  5. Raine, *ggg*

  6. Charli, I hear you on moving books.

    We’re off to Maui. May not come back. I don’t mind the bugs. 😉

  7. Thanks V! I have Rachel’s and Seanan’s books. And I’m also reading Skinwalker. I’m a little over halfway through. I agree completely about your assessment.

  8. You have definitely been busy. I’m sure those new bookshelves are worth a few bruises.

  9. Karin, I have been and they are. 🙂
