The Book on the bookshelf

Just finished reading this book and very interesting - especially to a bookaholic like me! As he was ending up and talking about his bookshelves, I was thinking I only had the 2.. then thought of there, and there and!

So I took some pics and thought this would be a good blog post.

Don't mind the mess!

This was the main place I was thinking and you see how it is overflowing and going onto the cupboard next to it!

THis is a stack beside that case.

Even a shelf in my daughters room!

A cupboard in the kitchen, closed and open. See the double rows??

Another bookshelf in the living room-a little neater.

And beside my chair - the ones that have to be read next.

And this doesn't include the PILE of library books to go through too.

I know, crazy. But what would life be without books?

Obama is here!!

These are from the Tv of course. Probably as close as I'm gonna get. I thought of going to Ottawa -it's only a couple hours... but it looks like there are TONS there and they probably will only see the cars go by. So I sit in my WARM house out of the snow and get to see all the action on my TV!

Pretty cool!

My Valentines present..

Aren't they pretty! Total surprise and they are a perennial too. Whenever I see the ground again, I can maybe plant it outside.

Should be in about 3 months.

That makes me want to throw up.


At least its sunny today!

A corner in my room...

Just a random shot I took while shooting other things. Saw the shot in my viewfinder and snap!

We are getting rain - oh YEAH! Love it. Get rid of the 3 feet of snow in my yard.

Have a good day!
