Clearing Clutter

Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui7. Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston

I’m entirely certain I still don’t understand the whole Feng Shui thing, but the clutter clearing concepts certainly hit home. I’m inspired to begin clearing up the clutter on my desk, in my studio, in the house, in my car, in my life. I can see where that’s going to be a long-term project. It’s hard to know where to start. Kingston makes suggestions on how to go about the clutter clearing, the most important of which (in my mind) is breaking things down into small, manageable chunks.

While I’d like to rush right home and start cleaning up there, I guess I ought to start here in the office where there is plenty of clutter. Bye bye to all the non- and semi-working computers…

Bushwhacked

Bushwhacked6. Bushwhacked by Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose

Let’s see. If you like Dubya, don’t read the book because those darn liberals are being really mean to Georgie. If you’re a darn liberal, you might not want to read the book because it will piss you off.

It pissed me off. I guess I’m a darn liberal. ;)

Vonnegut does it again

Timequake5. Timequake by Kurt Vonnegut

I got this one in a trade from fellow BookCrosser, Petaloka. Having read just about everything else Vonnegut has written, I was looking forward to Timequake. I was not at all disappointed. Typical Vonnegut, it was highly entertaining, amusing and thought-provoking. It’s an autobiography, it’s science fiction… it’s excellent!

Books, books, books

Someone, somewhere suggested keeping a list of all the books I’ve read this year. I’m off to a pathetic start because of the move, but here are the ones in my stack that I’ve already finished:

1. 3rd Degree by James Patterson and Andrew Gross
2. Dreams Made Flesh by Anne Bishop
3. The Good Sister by Diana Diamond
4. Truth or Dare by Jayne Ann Krentz

3rd DegreeDreams Made FleshThe Good SisterTruth or Dare

I’ve set a goal of reading at least 50 books this year. Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem. In fact, reading 150 or more books wouldn’t normally be a problem. But I suspect the new (100+ year old) house is going to suck up a lot of my time until we have all the “minor” stuff done (i.e., the stuff we don’t have to hire someone else to do). Still… it’s a goal.
