The scene at right indicates a house in chaos, indeed. The room where the books live is being painted (walls, trim and built-in shelving). It's a big job, and so the books have sought safe harbour under the stairs (in alphabetized stacks, of course). So far I've not had to dig through in search of anything, though something will come up over the next few days, inevitably. The very best thing about the redec being that I'll be able to post a picture of my library afterwards, which I haven't done up until now because it was horrible.

This weekend was brilliant. We had four (4!) parties to attend, and were hosted marvelously, had such a wonderful time with friends. Today's was even in suburbia, and we got to swim in a pool-- such a treat. I'm now reading Marilynne Robinson's new novel Home, about to curl up somewhere comfortable and read the very end. If this book is something you've been waiting for, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
