If your day needs something nice and cat-related

This links to a particular Robot Hugs comic. I'm not familiar with the comic as a whole (according to the About page, some are NSFW), but this particular one make me smile. It's about someone discovering what cat purring is like for the very first time.

The bookcase cleaning project. Temporary halt, because SPIDER!

I don't do spiders.  Period.  If they are outside, I leave them alone, even the black widows.  But if they are inside, it's Raid-time. This one was almost certainly already deceased, but I had to spray first, then wait, then vacuum.  I simply don't do spiders.

 

Once that was taken care of, I began cleaning and organizing.  In the process, I found a battered copy of Barbara Michaels' House of Many Shadows, which I read for Bingo on a library digital loan because I didn't know I had the paperback.  A not-quite-so-battered copy of The Sea King's Daughter also turned up.  And a Victoria Holt title that had not been catalogued.  Plus a few other things.

 

Several other books on the back of the top shelf became library donations, because I have picked up digital editions.  I am often loath to give up my paperbacks even though I have Kindle copies, and that is just plain stupid.  If they were books I wanted multiple copies of for comparison of editions, that would be one thing.  They aren't.  In fact, they aren't anything special enough to have two copies of for any reason.  Paperback copies are going to the library!!

 

I did not make as much progress on this project as I had planned, but something is better than nothing.  The bottom shelf still needs a lot of work.  However, the motivation also prompted me to tackle some other cleaning/organizing chores that have been staring me in the face for far too long. 

 

A large pile of junk paper has been sorted and diminished by about one-half; half of what remains needs to be returned to their original file folders. I will try to get to that this afternoon.

 

A HUGE stack of small sewing projects related to art show prep has been pulled out of the corner where I stashed it a year or so ago and moved to front and center by the sewing machine.  I completed five of these little projects -- there are literally dozens of them -- this morning before the temperature in the studio made further work too uncomfortable.  My studio needs cleaning/purging/organizing every bit as desperately as the house.

 

We won't even talk about the workshop.  I think it may have spiders, too, so that's a good reason not to address it right now.

Some kitty belly for you all

 

I've been enjoying some of the recent pet photos, so I figured I'd post one of my cat. My avatar is her as a kitten. This is her today. It's a common pose of hers. If she's relaxed enough (meaning she doesn't spring up the instant I move towards her), I can pet her chest and head for a few seconds before she decides she's had enough. If her head and front legs were pointed in one direction and her hind legs in the opposite direction, I'd know it's safe to pet her belly for a while. :-)

I'm too tired for this

Aw crap. My car is dead. :-(

 

Crossing my fingers that it's just the battery.

Non-book post...

I'm going to be spending the next few hours telling folks not to panic when our glitchy printing system tells them they somehow both have money for printing and also no money for printing. I'm up to 6 people so far, let's see how long it takes to hit double digits. Siiigh. I was hoping this issue would be fixed by today.
