moving the books

The challenge I’ve discovered from moving our books

  • is not the number of boxes
  • is not the weight of each box (even a small one)
  • is not the dust (erm.. oops)
  • is not that we don’t have our library renovated yet so there are no bookshelves

No, the challenge I’ve discovered is that since most of our books have been double or even triple shelved for years I’m rediscovering tons of books I didn’t remember we owned and I’m pretty distracted by all the new temptations.

Ok, all of that and I have spent all my spare time today spinning on my new spindle and not writing. (for the record, all that spare time amounted to 10 whole minutes)

I have a review I’m drafting on Cat Bordhi‘s awesome new book, Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters. It may be ready on Wednesday but I may hold it until next Monday so I can really dig into her method. In short: I love Cat’s brain. I would love to one day take a class with her. She’s awesome.

Speaking of awesome, go pre-order Abby’s new book, Respect The Spindle: Spin Infinite Yarns With One Amazing Tool or her new drafting DVD. I’m waiting until after a certain event at the end of this month to order a signed copy (if possible).

  1. I know the feeling. I cleaned the tea cabinet yesterday and all of a sudden needed to “try” at least half a dozen forgotten teas!

  2. Double-and-triple-shelving is the norm at chez Teabird. I’m at the point where I have no idea what’s back there. Pretty weird for a cataloger, eh?
