I am sure everyone is sick of the “Nemo” news, Facebook posts, Tweets, blog posts, and the like. But, I thought, “What the heck. I’ll jump on the train and share too.” [Actually, it’s just an excuse to write about accomplishing a project I have put off for a while.]
I was supposed to be working today. But, I work for the kind of people that won’t put their employees in danger in hopes of some minimal profit. So, I had a lazy morning watching Sons of Anarchy…and the wind creating some cool snow drifts. None of these cars is mine. So, I can look at them and think, “Cool!” [Side note: On Thursday, all you would have seen in this picture is pavement and brown grass.]
I decided that today would be the day that I would, finally, tackle my To Be Read shelves.
I posted this picture here earlier this week. After hitting “publish”, I immediately felt regret. I wondered how many calls would be made to the producers of Hoarders. What would people think? [Normally, I am not really concerned with what people think. So, this was a weird thought for me]
About ten years ago, I got very interested in collecting sports memorabilia and had two large book cases which displayed all of this junk. I rarely went into the room where it was displayed. I didn’t follow the players any longer — most of them probably aren’t even playing now. Basically, I have moved on.
So, I put my mover hat on and emptied the shelves, dragged the bookcase into the living room and refilled the shelves with books — and my “book adaptation” DVDs. Here’s the finished project.
I am pretty happy with the results — and a lot less worried about what people might think.
A blizzard-bound mission accomplished!
