A little Spring cleaning

Filed under: Uncategorized — coffeegirl88 @ 6:39 pm

My Spring cleaning fit seems to be coming in small waves this year.  I just went through my box o’ electronic crap and tossed power cords to things I no longer own.  There were audio cables that went to . . . who the hell knows.  There’s the charger for my first mp3 player that’s well leaking (yeah I really need to dispose of this soon). 

I sorted clothing patterns and odd scrap of garment fabric about three weeks ago, tossed a big bag of that.  Did you know that NO ONE takes clothing patterns as a donation?  Yeah, I called around to some schools and community groups and you’d think I’d asked them to take the rotting corpse of squirrel or something the way they reacted. 

I’ve decided my birthday present this year is going to be a big o’ box of ebooks.  Yeah, funny huh?  Anyway I’ve gone through my to be read pile (non Harlequin books) and sorted them out by which were available via ebooks.  Those are set aside and will be sent off to the library once they start taking donations again.  The big used book sale is this weekend.  First time in a couple of years I haven’t gone, but I didn’t even think about it until sometime late yesterday.  The biggest thing I was always looking for were old Harlequin Blazes.  Most of the back list is available digitally now so eventually my stockpile will be replaced.  Eventually I’ll have the entire catalog of Blazes on my eReader.

How’s the writing going you ask?  Heh.  I’ve stalled a little, mostly because of the distractions of the “oh shiny” whatever it is at the moment.  Later, once it cools off a little I’ll dive back into the work and try to make a dent in my weekly page goal.


  1. As soon as this WIP is edited, I have plans for some massive spring cleaning. Guess it’ll be summer by then…

  2. I really want to clean as I know clean house=easier to write, but the writing is going well and I don’t want to upset the balance. Or at least that’s what I tell myself… 🙂

  3. I’m thinking some of this is to clean up the space around me so I have fewer distractions from the writing.

    Of course it’s been down right muggy around here this week which makes doing anything harder than it really should.
