I really do hope you can get back to woking on your home. What great ideas.. and yes, bookcases in every room. I have piles of every table.
I have a tall square bookcase that fits in a niche by DD's bedroom door. It is full of all her books I have here.
I love niches and hideaway spaces tucked into invisible places... that no one else recognizes as space.
I know that the TX storage was broken into and all my dads records, my record players, and all that type of thing is gone. I have real expensive posters in frames I doubt are still there.
I now a lot of folks are in pain now for loosing their homes and family members. Life is painful - at least from my perspective.
Animals are my solace. Trees and the sky and all of nature wrap themselves around me and I do the best I can to survive mankind's brutality. That includes family and friends unfortunately. I am glad we have our DS and I am envious of you and your DH. But I have Charlie who take up as much time as a dh would. And even hogs the bed. I guess he chose Charlie to answer to. I'm sure, being a dog he hasn't a clue it means MAN. ROFLOL! Oh, the Gods have such a poignant sense of humor to answer for.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
