Wednesday Scramble

Post Name

I decided to change the name of my Wednesday post to help drag me out of my rut. For now, we'll have a Wednesday Scramble instead of Wednesday Bits and Pieces.

Tomorrow's Guest

A blogger friend who dates back to the Dani Greer online Blog Book Tour class we took in 2009 is my guest tomorrow. Stephen Tremp is stopping by on his very own virtual tour for his new release of Breakthrough, an action/adventure novel about science and wormholes and ninja-type villains. He'll be talking about his journey as a writer. If you want to check in on Stephen's tour today, he's at Karen Gowan's Coming Down the Mountain blog, talking about Promotion and Marketing.

Furniture Shopping and Books

I took a couple of hours yesterday and went shopping for stuff to make our living room useful for reading and writing and television watching and entertaining company. It was pretty exciting. I went to one of the big furniture warehouses and then walked all over the place several times, testing the chairs to make sure they fit just right, shaking the coffee tables to make certain they were sturdy. I liked the big fall sale prices, so I probably went just a bit overboard. I kept telling myself I was helping the economy as I jotted down the order number for one more item. The new stuff gets delivered on Friday.

All I have to do now if figure out what to do with the bookcases and overflowing stacks of books to tidy up the space so it's not so busy and messy. I think step one will be finding a new home for a few of the books. I have two whole days to get ready. I'm heading down now to unload all the books from the bookcases and start sorting the keepers from the giveaways. I'll be done in time to welcome Stephen to my blog tomorrow morning. :)

My wife and I just got back from Iatalia. Already can't wait to go back!

Why isn't there a way to help the economy and NOT end up going broke? I guess it's like they say, you can't spend good intentions. :0)

Patricia - I like the idea of changing the name of a post as a way to avoid a rut. Good thinking :-).

I'm happy for you that you've got a whole new look planned for your living room. When it's fixed up the way you want, I hope you'll share 'photos. Revamping is another terrific way to beat the blahs.

I look forward to Stephen's post tomorrow.

Great new title. Enjoy the revamping. A change is as good as a they say, whoever they are.

Now every time I look at the title of this post, I think about scrambled eggs and bacon. I may have to change it again...

Patricia, you crack me up. We just made some changes to our living room area and I am loving them. We're about to get rid of a huge desk in an upstairs bedroom and replace it with bookshelves. Yippee. More room for books.

Bookcases in the bedroom. Why didn't I think of that? I have one whole wall I could fill up. Yahoo!
