We have been trying to declutter, so my project for today was to process the latest batch of paperbacks and books-on-tape I got at the library booksale. By process, I mean that I wipe all the books down and iron them a little because I like my books to feel clean and not sticky. That only took a little while, and now I have a whole set of Sue Grafton mysteries and a set of Dick Francis books-on-tape. I also found a place to put the jam I made over the weekend and went out and bought a bunch of black cardboard storage boxes. I still have lots of binders and papers from the estate settling for the time being, and I figure they will look less tacky stored in black boxes tucked in a corner than the various printed xerox boxes they are in now. I hope they will, anyway.
The embroidery machine came back from the shop but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I have plans, though. This afternoon I am busy making a cake for the spouse's office, mostly because it is Valentine's Day tomorrow and I got some cool sprinkles at Walmart to put on the frosting. I'll have to go back in a few weeks and see if they have some St. Patrick's sprinkles. Sometimes I make cupcakes for the office, but today I don't feel like frosting three dozen little cakes, so a sheet cake it is. I should also make the spouse some Valentine's choco chip cookies. But maybe I'll watch a movie instead.
