I'm seriously tackling book organizing and weeding. So far there's two huge bags of books to give back, give away, or get rid of! I swear that by the end of the day my books will all be on shelves and at least in the rough area where they'll end up living.
Moomin and Hamish made Pokemon cards for their stuffed animals. I enjoyed watching their pokemon fight. "Wildrock, use tail whack attack!" "Ratatat, use Avalanche!" (*sound effects*) They like the idea of having cards, stats, and attacks with cool names, but they haven't grasped the idea of making a system that actually works, with rules to follow.
Now they're making each other "Mathematics books". Moomin being a bit pompous about how he "knows about tens and ones". Why "mathematics"?
I should take a break from my book organizing and play Heroscape with them, with rules! But it's so nice to have a bit of time to myself.
I have looming grant deadlines and should write about 3 book proposals, but first I need to be able to use my office, which means cleaning up all the books and papers and buying a bike lock so I can move the bikes out of there. It would also help to get the heater working in there.
