About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribble and Scrambles - Oh My!

I filled my new bookshelves. I mean I filled them. I don't have a clue how many books I have, but the space for new books is limited at best.

It leaves me pondering where I used to keep them all.

The really scary thing is this picture was taken after I unloaded large bags at my local and church libraries.

The books pictured on my shelves are the ones I want to read, have started to read or have finished and will go back to revisit.

Ha. To think that I thought my hubby was going overboard. Nope. He just knows me pretty well.

I suppose there are worse collections to have. This way I can at least pretend to be intelligent. If I pose neer the theology and study helps section anyway.

Lily peeks from the steps. Kind of creepy if you ask me.

I am having the "what am I going to do with all these books?" dilemna. Maybe I need some shelves like yours. Especially since I now have books rolling in for my little girl!

Oh!! I want a set!! Does your husband travel? ;-)

We just purchased what I considered to be a large bookshelf and filled it almost immediately! I had the same thought..."where were these books to start with?" We have a HUGE book problem at our house! Guess one day we'll be living in a library!

Your shelves are beautiful!!!

You are a blessed woman:) It's funny this obsession with paper and ink...
Creepy? It's adorable. I have two of them staring me down all the time:)

Kim, my husband does travel and brings me with him especially if you live by the ocean and have balmy days. Do let me know if you offer those perks!!!

And I guess I spoke for all of you with my book hunger eh what?

And I am very blessed. If it would make y'all feel better I could post some pictures of my ongoing construction.
