It's a beautiful sunny day here with low humidity. We turned the A/C off and opened the doors and windows. It's wonderful!
Take a look at this vertical book shelf unit.
We love books!
Not only do I love to read but so does my Hubby.
When you have as many books as we do you need some way of keeping track of your inventory. Several years ago we purchased a scanner inventory computer program, called IntelliScanner. We found it's a great way to organize our books and movies. So far we have inventoried all of our DVDs. But....not all of our books. We have collected hundreds
thousands of books over the 37 years we have been married. I do enter any new books we have purchased into our inventory program but we have no idea how many books we have at this moment. Someday I hope to get all of them scanned and entered. Recently, after cleaning out our upstairs paperback library, we took about 800 science fiction paperback books to Good Will. I organized all the remaining paperback books and now we can see what we have at a glance. But that's just one area where we have books stored.
I love this vertical book shelving...and the turquoise color too. If I get rid of the high stool we have in our kitchen I could put one of these up and put my cookbooks on it. It's one of those decorating thoughts I have that I haven't acted on yet. I think I've seen a similar unit at Ikea. Heck, it would be easy just to make one from scratch I bet.
Other news...our old GE dishwasher (15 plus years) wasn't working properly so we had a fancy new stainless steel one (Kitchen Aid) installed today by Lowe's. This is the second appliance we have bought and had installed by Lowe's and we are very happy with their service. Just our opinion - we aren't being paid to say this. We have never had such a quiet dishwasher...we can barely tell it is running.
Next week we take our travel van back to the RV dealership to have the toilet replaced. It's a brand new unit so the work is under warranty. We'll both have to drive up and leave the van for the work overnight. I wish the dealership was closer - it's an hour and 1/2 to two hour drive up there - but it is what it is.
We have campground reservations to go to a little 4 day rally just for small travel vans (i.e., RVs categorized as "Bs") like ours at Hershey, PA during the Hershey RV Show in the middle of September. At this rate that will be our first overnight trip in the van.
That's all the news here at Teacup Lane. Hope you are having a lovely day too.
