Hello! Welcome to the Weekend! I hope everyone has something fun and relaxing planned! We are headed to the lake on Saturday to celebrate Elisha as he will be turning 9 years old! Everyone is so excited---it's not often that we get to take an outing like this and I just pray it will be a wonderful day for all!
For this week's Homemaking LinkUp Weekend, I'm reviving a post I wrote in 2008 when I first started blogging. I'm reposting it because there's been a new development in this lifelong dream of mine! I'll show you the post and then tell you the update!
Please feel free to link up your posts below! The theme is Homemaking---but it's very general. Just link up what you want---as many as you want---and I'll come around and visit you this week! I even plan on picking a post or two to feature so show me your stuff!
Last night my husband and I were watching the Stargate SG-1 episode where Sam's new boyfriend is teasing her about quirkiness. He makes a comment that goes something like: "as long as you don't have alphabetized bookshelves..."
My husband looked at me and grinned his "you have weird quirkinesses" smile.
You see, I not only want my bookshelves alphabetized---I want them arranged according to the Dewey Decimal System. This has been a dream of mine ever since I began collecting books in my early childhood.
People keep telling us we need a bigger place because we have a lot of kids. They're all only half way right. Yes, a bigger place is needed...but not for the kids' sake. If we were to have one more bedroom than we have now, it would not be for kids---it would be for my dream library.
All arranged as Dewey would do it.
So... Are you ready to hear the good news? My husband, in his Software Developer Geniusness, is creating a program for me so I can arrange all my books according to THE DEWEY DECIMAL SYSTEM!! Isn't that awesome?!! Ha!
I'll be able to store information for every book in our home library on my computer and search for books according to several different categories like title, author, and keyword. You might think this is a little extreme...but, what you may not know is...we have about 1,600 books in our home!! An organizational system is very much needed!
