Winteryness again, complete with sludgy sidewalks and bitter cold wind. Now is about the time when winter wears out it's welcome entirely (as if it ever was welcome). I am, however, making good use of the snow boots I purchased so reluctantly. This week, I have lunch dates to look forward to, new summerish dresses in the mail, library orders to get out, new books to design, and maybe some new poems. I spent the weekend working on the bathroom & linen closet, which are now sparkly clean and organized. Last week, I finally managed to get the bookshelves under control somewhat (I also managed to find a couple shrink wrapped books I'm pretty sure I got at AWP 2007 and then got lost in the morass.) For someone who works in a library and can pretty much access books anytime I want, I feel like I have too many, especially novels that once read, I'll probably never pick up again. I did however, dispense of some old obsolete reference tomes, which means I have more shelf space to fill on the poetry shelf, so I'll probably be less frugal in purchasing than I have been. Which of course, only makes things worse..
