We have had a couple days of cold December rains, the kind of wet that just cuts through you even when you are inside with bread baking and tripping over a kitty determined to sleep in the middle of the floor. Today the rain is to end and the temperatures plummet.
Christopher will be staying here tonight so I've promised both the guys homemade chicken soup. I am so glad I defrosted a whole chicken a few days ago. It now resides in a hot oven, sitting on a bed of frozen onions, celery, and carrots (a good thing to have frozen as I am out of fresh celery and carrots).
After an hour in the oven, it will all be transferred to the stock pot on its' way to become a healthy meal after the sun sets. I can hardly wait... In the meantime, I am going to attempt to get caught up with e-mails today in between laundry and other necessary items on the gotta do list.
As promised, here are a few more peeks into my bookshelves... this time the living room (sorry for the flash!). My two large bookshelves there used to reside on corresponding sides of a fireplace in a former home. Now they are rather overpowering in the small living room but that is okay... decorating with books is always welcome here.
|The blue books are my collection of Anne Morrow Lindbergh diaries, which I plan to re-read this winter.|
|Carolee, you are in between Colson and Friedman!|
My books are not exactly in perfect order but for the most part... there is a pattern. Sometimes they are mixed up just due to the size of book a shelf can hold. I hope this incomplete glimpse into the living room shelves is fun for you! I love seeing people's bookshelves.

While my books have been collected since I was a teenager, many of them were purchased at library sales for a dollar or less. A few were found third party through Amazon for very inexpensive prices (like the Anne Morrow Lindbergh diaries).
Some older books were gifts from friends who knew I'd take very good care of them. I love old books.
