the color of organization

I am so much more productive at night.  I wish I was a morning person, but I’m not and I’ve come to accept the fact that I am not.  I can get more done between 11pm & 3am than most can during an entire work day.  Especially when I’m rockin’ out to good free tunes (thanks Kate!)  The fruits of my labor?  Rearranging my bookshelf for a more aesthetically pleasing style.  We’ve got an open house this weekend and so I’m trying to dot my i’s and cross my t’s.  I thinned out quite a few of the books too.  I’m terrible at returning people’s books promptly so I have a stack of those; I have another stack to donate to our church and yet another to the library.  I also decided to pull all of my journals.  I had no idea I had such a collection (over 20).  And no more magazines.  Those can all go in storage down below.  This is what I was left with:

I also thought that people who arranged their book shelves by color were pretentious people who liked to surround themselves with books they don’t read.  However, if you are the person who has arranged these books #1. you become well acquainted with your books and #2. i do tend to remember things visually, so I know what the color of the book is that I’m looking for.  Yet again, I’m having to eat my words and step off my high horse.  I will however still reserve judgement for those people who turn their books around backwards for display. Now that truly is impractical!

But even the trees were playing along with organizing color today.  It is so beautiful in Michigan this time of year.  I’m  glad I didn’t miss it.
