Bookends and BBQ!

I’m sorry; I didn’t post/schedule any book reviews today.  Jaime and I watched a movie last night and then I threw myself into the tub then bed because I had to wake up super early to get to work at 6a.  Bad time management on my part, but I can’t turn down a movie with my hubby!

Anyways, after work I went to my grandmother’s house.  I’m at her house now, actually.  She had some scrap fabric for my book-end project that I wanted to pick up.  (More about that in a bit!)  When I got here, my Uncle Buddy, mom, and youngest brother Jackson were all at her house.  Uncle Buddy lives out of the country most of the time and out of the state the rest of the time, so we never get to see him.  He and mom were setting up Momo’s Christmas present in the living room.  Momo has a new flat TV that she’s really excited about.

They were also planning on a BBQ dinner at Momo’s since my dad is out of town and Uncle Buddy is in town.  After I sort of invited myself and asked Jaime if he would come (he’s helping his sister and can’t), I realized that I still hadn’t taken care of my site for the day.  So while they cook, I type.  And listen to YouTube.  It looks like Uncle Buddy fixed up Momo’s computer for her.  ^_^

So, bookends, you ask?

Yes, bookends.  You all know about my library project, yes?  The huge event of me completely reorganizing my library and making it look nicer than ever?  Yeah, that project.  Well, I’ve made floating bookshelves, but I don’t think I’ve posted the pictures here…  I need to get on that.  Well, in addition to my floating bookshelves, I also need bookends to prevent my books from warping.

I originally was trying to find scrap pieces of 2x4s or 4x4s that were at least six inches long, and then I thought, “hey, bricks good work, too!”  Followed by, “ooh, mom has bricks behind her shed!”

When I told Jaime that I was going get bricks from mom, he told me that we had a whole stack behind our shed!  I was in shock!  This is what happens when I don’t go outside at my own house…

Anyways, while tonight isn’t the night for pictures, I will be taking some and posting them either tomorrow or the day after along with new book reviews!  I can’t wait to show you my newly organized library with bookends!  That’s what I’ve been waiting for to update the library page, by the way – bookends.  :-)

Good night, my imaginary friends!  Sleep well and keep reading!
