January is such a month of organization....
it's a relief it's over!
But I'm a HUGE list keeper...
and that does fall into organizational obsessions....
BFF Virginia and I went to an estate sale on this past New Year's Eve.
One of the books I found there was a book filled with pages of listings of books the woman who had lived there had read. I'm sure there was an earlier list...but I couldn't find it. But above is a glimpse. She wrote detailed critiques (I think she was a librarian).
I loved this find - because - yes, I used to do the same.
Only my lists do not reflect any literary education.... I either liked it or I didn't!!! ha!
I reached a place a few years ago where I was mostly reading non-fiction and I stopped keeping the list. I think I need to get back to it. One day someone at my estate sale will be so happy to have it. Right?
and then there is the list of quilts and other sewing projects I made... Once I got into paper art.... well, you know that is IMPOSSIBLE to list!
And there are things in this sewing list that I do NOT remember making.
I can't believe I made a vest for my mother!!!!
And where is it?
Did I find it in her stuff when we were cleaning out and wonder where she got that tacky thing?
