Over the last few weeks, we have chronicled the move, and it has sometimes been easy while other times it has been hard. I think that it’s always a little bit hard when trying to decide what things to keep and what things to part with and what things to keep. It’s also hard trying to organize yourself and assimilate with the systems of others. I think we have done a pretty good job over the last few weeks of starting to put things together. Last weekend, we tackled trying to actually get a few things put away in the space where all my craft supplies and business goodies are stored so it was the bookshelves turn to get put together.
Before the bookshelf was looking pretty lonely but as you’ll see in a minute, it wasn’t for lack of books. I’m a bit of a cookbook collector to say the least so it was easy to fill up this space with cookbooks between the two of us. The other two shelves are easily set up for the rest of our book collection. I don’t read many physical books though as it takes me FOREVER and a day to finish one. That has to do with my dyslexia I think, but I have the kindle to solve most of that problem. I’ve also picked up Audible for my now longer commute to work. I finished Labor Day by Joyce Maynard in my audible and oh boy was I in tears by the end. That’s something for another time though.
As you can see, we can’t quite fill up the bookshelf with our cookbook collection, but we’ve already got our eye on a few more. There are a few at Disneyland that have a collection of Disney recipes, and I of course always want the Southern Living Annuals. I’m not a fan of collecting magazines throughout the year to gather dust, but I am a fan of the recipes held within. This is why my mom always gives the annuals each year so I can practice my cooking skills more and more. I suppose you’ll probably see a few of these in the coming months. In the meantime, I hope you look forward to next weeks changes in the house and organization. Note the cookbooks are organized by type.
