Getting My Books in Order

This whole lockdown has been pretty strange. Not only are we getting sick of being in the house, we’re in front of our computer screens nonstop, with walking breaks stretched throughout the day to keep us sane. I thank goodness each day for the park/farm up the street and the odd little jobs we’ve been doing, in addition to watching Game of Thrones from the beginning all the way through with our kids (they had not seen my favorite all-time show before) as diversions from work. It’s truly been a whirlwind.

One of the projects I decided to undertake was rearranging my bookshelves in both my office and piano room. Both projects had been on my mind, and as my favorite social media is Instagram and there are a lot of great pictures of bookshelves being shared, I was inspired. The office bookshelf above is organized by color. It took me a couple of weeks on and off, and the one in the piano room (below) I conquered this past Saturday morning.

There are a couple of other bookshelves I’d like to tackle as well in the house, and I’ll get to those once the grading for the semester is done. After that, there are some other projects that loom…and I’m looking forward to getting them in order as well.

What projects have you tackled during quarantine that you’ve been wanting to complete? Have you used this time to attack anything on your “to do” list?

    I finally finished cleaning out our upstairs storage area. My husband and boys helped me over Mother’s Day weekend! It was fun going through all of the memories in those boxes! Now the third floor bedroom is ready to have a closet and bathroom added!
