Started off by putting up books I have reviewed on PaperBackBookSwap.com. Love that site. As much as I read and am sent books there are still those I want that are not here as of yet. So I troll PBBS for them. Also I list the books I have reviewed but are not in my keeper shelf. (Hint: Authors all signed books are always kept!) This is a great way to keep from having too many yet getting what I really want. Currently I am waiting on another Jerome Charyn book, Citizen Sidel. It is a continuation of Blue Eyes that I had told you about! I also packaged up 6 of the books I listed today to mail out. Did not take 5 minutes from listing them to having notices popping up for request. What a great mail out I will have tomorrow.
Next I had JDL (aka College Girl) help me rearrange the office. Dear Hubby has always wanted a piano to tinkle away on. Lucky us, we were offered one from a friend for FREE! Yes, you heard me right. So we needed to make room for it in our home. I am going to add it to our office/private suite. Moved around 4 bookcases (unloading and reloading), file cabinet, storage boxes, chairs and wooden cabinets. But over all we made room and have a space cleared for the piano. Dear Hubby will be ever so pleased. Now he just has to have the guys help him pick it up and move it in!
I also did the usual dishes, laundry, sweeping, mopping and all that comes with daily house work. Dogs cared for and lunch served. Thankfully I have my ever trusty helper, JDL, here for now. I know it will not be long though. She has had 3 job offers in the area and is taking up two of them. So it will be a work-a-day world for her in no time at all. Actually she just walked in and told me she starts one job tomorrow morning. Yippee! I know these are not the jobs she wants but are able to help her start getting those first steps on getting out on her own.

Also I had this pop up in my mail today. I knew you would want to look it over and hopefully try them out. You know that I am a big Disney Movie fan and BRAVE now opening in less than a month (June 22nd) I wanted to share some delicious Scottish recipes in the theme of the film!
