A couple days ago I caught this plane landing in the pre-dawn.
A few minutes later the cloudless sky was turning clear blue.
I've been back in my morning routine of rotating between online stuff and the books, journaling, and letter writing. And now a couple of the audio talk series have started up again (they run 60-90 minutes) so mornings pass quickly and I am often still at it in the afternoon with my necessary breaks. (Nothing ruins your day faster than a screaming body--LOL!)
Wednesday afternoon Karma was lying about as I was journaling...
...when we heard a knock at the door.
Always startling because I normally have to buzz people in.
The black steel shelves arrived!!
(The other clear plastic set is due via UPS next Tuesday.)
These two boxes...
...were inside of this really big box...
...that Karma had to immediately check out.
So excited to see these!!
I know this bookcase shelf will have to be lowered when the extra shelves are sanded and arrive from Leah...
...but, of course, I couldn't resist removing all the paper from the sagging cardboard magazine holders and starting to sort!
Well, and I couldn't resist shoving Karma's cat bed inside of the really big box, either--LOL!
So, I puttered about with paper the past two afternoons.
Got this far.
Have this whole big stack of card stock to properly sort and match up all the colors for the last six shelves...
...while Karma sleeps in her new favorite spot.
Anything new, you know. ;)
My Dad is scheduled for his hip replacement surgery on Monday the 19th. :):)
I will probably take today off from sorting paper. This humidity makes my bones talk. Been wonderfully cool during the night (40-50s) and hot during the days (mid-80s). I absolutely can't resist having the windows open all night. Fall is my very, very favorite time of year. But this humidity sucks! For example, when I got up this morning a little after 7am (yes, I am on really normal morning hours--tada!) it was 54 degrees and 90% humidity. So, I hobble about--especially for those first few hours--but I am dang well not going to miss these awesome fall nights. Who knows how long they will last? Will we have a nice long fall as I am praying for? Or will we be shoveling snow in short order? With the crazy weather we've had this year all over the country--the world--I'm not taking any chances. ;)
So with the 40+ degree swings every day up here I am running the AC in the afternoons and snuggled under my quilt during the chilly nights--ROFL! This time of year if you leave the house you have to wear layers you can remove and reclaim as the day goes on. Feels like fall is here. Even if it is a little too hot during the day yet for our normal fall.
Prayers and good thoughts for everyone out east dealing with the current flooding and the aftermath of Irene. Hope it is a decent weekend for everybody. Sorry that some of us need some better days! I would be honored if I could ever be somebody's rainbow.....
