Herself: I never got to the books at all yesterday, there were so many donations that I just pitched in and started sorting things so we could get in the back room.
WW foods for the day: Breakfast and lunch were the usuals. I did have a banana for a snack. Dinner was a Italian chicken sausage fajhita with a side of no fat beans. I weighed in just the same as the previous week and G did the dishes. Today swim, weight room, write, eat out….oh, hurrah.
Purelandmountain.com offers the latest news from Japan on days he isn’t fighting his local flora and fauna. Take a moment to watch the CNN interview, “THEY LIED TO US - Michio Kaku.” horrific news. This will be the grandaddy of all accidents, he tells us. Far, far, worse than Chernobyl.
Sounds simple doesn’t it. The picture shows one wall of books….this end is cook books, and the tall shelves at the right are non fiction. Around the corner are two more book shelves holding more fiction.
Right now I’m running a paperback book sale. One kind lady donated all…yes I said that, ALL her enthusiastically read romances. Bodice rippers my librarian and author friend Kay would say…and Kay will be in town this weekend. We had so many boxes and bags of romances….all in perfect condition, mind you, that I had to stick somewhere. I printed up a forest of signs that say, “2 Paperback Books for $1.00” and stuck them all over the store.
Yesterday I came in and faced wall to wall donations. I moved bags and sorted donations so Jay, a delightful lady in a wheel chair, could get through to the books in the back room. I sorted bags of clothes while Jay priced books.
Sometimes there are a lot of books. Then I spend an hour sorting and pricing books before Jay arrives. Get the many boxes moved out of her way and those books priced. I shelve while Jay prices. Yesterday nothing got shelved tho I straightend up the shelves. The two tall bookcases that once lived up against the left wall were sold. Somehow I had through they belonged to the shop. Nope, I’d filled them with sale books, and now the books covered the tops of one big table.
I’m committed to doing books on Wednesday. I think the small bit I do for the Cancer Society gives back for all that Terry did for me, that Janey did, that Lee did, and Gene, and Harry, and Delpha, and most of all Jo and Marion. What special people they all were, and I am grateful that I am still alive to remember and give back despite my wild life.
