No, I don’t want another bowl of gruel, I had enough of that for breakfast (well, it was cereal), and there will be more for dinner (okay, it will be kale soup). What I want some more of is book shelves.
Yes, that’s right, though I have had shelves installed in two areas of the house, some of them shown here in a somewhat fuzzy photo, I have at least a dozen boxes of books sitting in a storeroom, and stacks and piles of the things lounging elsewhere. They need a home, and by golly I’m going to give them one, or try to. In an hour or so the fellow who built the other shelves in the house will be here to give me an estimate for more in yet a third room.
Though there is a good deal of wall space, my Wife insists on keeping enough of it clear for a bed or sofa bed in case one is ever needed, since this could be a spare bedroom / guest room. At least that’s what it would need to be if anyone came to stay who could not negotiate stairs. For now we’ll have the new book shelves, a couple of club chairs, a foot stool and a side table, to go along with the drafting table, it’s light and stool and some art supply storage in one area. I’m planning on 15 feet of shelves, 9 feet tall. That may sound like a lot of shelves, but I expect it will only hold a portion of the books needing a home. Stay tuned.
