Day Two...The Search Goes ON

More progress on looking for the missing CD. As you can see by the picture my bookshelves are now neat and reasonably tidy. I even filled two grocery bags with papers and old catalogs to throw out. After moving into this home four years ago I find that I still am purging out stuff that moved with me.

Cleaner bookshelves   

Well, after cleaning my bookshelves, I happened to be walking by my husband's bookshelves in the other room.  There on the top shelf were two CD cases. Hmmm, I wondered. I opened one up and started rifling through it. And there I guessed CD. How did it get there? Well, I admit I had lent him one of my CDs associated with the missing one a few weeks ago. I must have given that  one along with it. fault! Anyways I'm glad to have the mystery solved and a cleaner bookcase to boot. And now to find the top of my desk....

And You Ask "Why Are You Cleaning Your Studio"?

I'm sure it's happened more than once to you. I know it's happened to me. Losing something that is. Somewhere in the house. A special CD given to me by a friend is suddenly missing. Can it be replaced? Yes, it can. But a friend who is very dear to me gave this CD to me. What can I say but that I want it back. No, I don't have teenagers in the house who might have inadvertently picked it up thinking it was theirs. I don't have a dog so it hasn't been chewed up and spit out. My hubby and I don't have the same taste in CDs so he didn't take it. I checked my CD rack 3 times, my box of instructional CDs, the 2 CD players in the house...not there. So the next thing is to clean my studio where I last saw it. I had projects all over the room so, first of all , get those picked up and put away. Okay, there is still some stuff on the floor where I threw it but I'm picking that up next.

Sidetracked: Started cleaning up the book case...a whole bag of reference clippings ready to throw out next garbage day. One half of the bookcase is straightened...Wow! more room to juggle books around. Now I won't have to stuff them to get them back into the bookcase.

Okay back to the cleaning.

  Or I could just quilt. The saga continues!
