Organizing Cd's and Books are next!

Every once in a while a blog I read, turns on the light in my brain, that's a great topic to write about. I was so inspired by Bloomin' Workshop, where I read an interesting bit about a bookshelf and some of her favorite books. So, I thought I would show some of the disorganized bookshelf that soon won't be-disorganized that is. When I rearrange the bookshelf, I'll tell of my favorite books on my shelf.

I noticed when I was posting about the Kentucky State Fair, there were several blogs that wrote about their own state fairs and I don't know if I was the first to write about it or not, but, it appeared a lot of quilters share the passions, for quilting, books and their state fairs.

I've lately been nesting and recently was stuck in Costco while waiting for my tires to be fixed. These are a couple of things I came home with: A media shelf, which I'm still filling with CD's I'm downloading into my PC and will soon burn a back up of some of them so I can play them in the car, without the possibility of losing the original. I'm sure I'll fill this shelf up with many CD's still to store-off the floor. I think I'll get a shelf in the closet and fill it up next.

I also bought a chair for sewing. You really want to invest in a good chair with lumbar support and a lift so you can sit at the proper height while sewing.

Along with these items, I also got lots of groceries, enough to feed an army-cause that's the way it's sold there. The produce is the best at Costco, I think the perishables as a whole are the best.

Well, need to finish up my organizing, CD's and books.

Make it a Great Day!

Organizing and Waterfront Wednesday today.

What is it in us that makes us need to organize sometimes. It just feels good and best of all, doesn't cost a thing. I really am a nester. I like to organize and rearrange furniture. It makes me feel good. I don't know why, it just does. Yesterday I was stuck at Costco for an hour while I waited to have my tires rotated and balanced. Warning: never be stuck in store when nesting. I left after getting tires done for free but bought $440.00 for organizing. Now the work doesn't cost a thing but, my oh my, what beautiful shelves I have for my CD's. Yes, I think I'm one of the last people in the world that still buys the CD's, cause I think the artist deserves to be heard in whole.

Like reading a book, I like to give the author a chance and read into it, before I give up. The same is true with a CD. I think the group or artist has attempted to create a cohesive work. I imagine it's late hours spent deciding just where a particular song should be heard on a record. In case some of you don't remember what a record is, in "the old days" music was put on a vinyl record and played on a turn table. Most music people still refer to records and their music but, it is now recorded on a compact disc or CD. I suppose in the end, CD's will become obsolete because people don't want to spend the money on a whole CD when it's only one song they really want. Thus the gargantuan success of Itunes. Genius Steve Jobs.

The list

We quilters have our lists of UFO's, WIP's, etc., but, does everyone have the other list?

On my other list is:

Travel to Minnesota and stay in a cabin on a lake and listen to the loons.

Go on another Carribean Cruise

Go to NYC during Christmas time to see the window displays

Visit San Francisco

See the Red woods in California

Go to Hawaii

Visit Seattle

Stay in Philadelphia and study more historical sights

I'm sure this list will be added to as time goes by and blogs don't cost anything, cause then we'd have to choose between quilting, travel or blogs...hmmmm...

Good Day!
