books

Herding books on a Sunday!


The TBR pile has been herded into the corner of the bedroom and lots of books have been sent on their way, either returned to owners, left at Cafe Gloria or in the pile for my upcoming book party :-)



I sorted out my books in the living room!
Before: 341


During....


After: 294


Also today, sewed a button a shirt, did 2 lots of washing, got some groceries in and generally got ready for school tomorrow!

What is happiness?

What a wonderful life I've had. I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
Colette
(Colette G. was the pen name of the French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette)

I saw this quote on the wonderful "happiness project" blog by Gretchen and it really made me think! I need to recognise and value my wonderful life as I live it.

This quote reminds me of its flipside:
I've lived a long time and had many troubles, most of which never happened.
Mark Twain

Our brains are so powerful - we need to focus on the positive and on the here and now :-)
