Day Nine; Footnotes of Today and Removing the Excess

 My son purchased a metal shelving unit for me so I could get those stacks of books back safely in place. They had been stacked on my desk and in the floor since the shelving had collapsed sending them crashing to the floor. That was months ago. Now, they are finally out of the floor and in some sense of organization.


My son helped me put the shelving together this afternoon. It was a joint effort that had its moments of hilarity. Us trying to get the joints in place with joints that didn’t want to cooperate. We did finally get it all together and I cleaned up all the plastic wrapping and extra pieces. I really wasn’t looking forward to what I was facing. Finally an hour or so later, I moved the shelving into place and began putting the books into place. For the first time, I was putting the books by the same author together and the similar topics together better, than they had been. It looks much better than before.


I moved the desk around so it would fit in the space, but I’m not happy with the placement. I spoke with my son about moving it to a different location in the room. That would mean moving the dog’s bed, but I doubt they will mind much. It will still be in the room, only a few feet away. The good thing is it will be further away from the wall that is nearest the carport so it will be more difficult to hear the cats moving about at night.


I did get both desks cleaned, the clutter removed. I found a few things I had forgotten I owned.

The problem with cleaning one room, some things migrate to other rooms. I do have a few things I need to find a final home for, even if it is to send it to the landfill. If I won’t use it, if I have no current need for it, there is no reason to hold onto the items, no matter what they are.


It is the same with parts of us. Wrong thoughts- get rid of them. Wrong actions-correct our movements. Procrastination-learn to be more more timely. Realize and put into action what needs to be done. Any of the things in our life that is not needed, not important, not necessary, get rid of it. Remove the wrong, so there is room for the right and proper.


Currently, the dogs are inside, and sleeping. The inside cat is somewhere off in the house hiding. The fact I didn’t sleep well last night is catching up with me. Still, today was a good day, a productive day, a day that I can and will mark down as having been good and one that has reminded me of essential things to remember.
