I’m in the final hours of preparation for the Central Valley Antiquarian Book Fair, as evidenced by the pictures below:
Most days, I clean all of my book work off the dining room table around 3:00 p.m., when it’s time for Tom and Huck to get home from school. Then they can sit at the table and eat snacks and study. Then we can eat dinner at the table. Having to clean up my mess every day forces me to stay organized.
Today it’s the day before a book fair. It’s also the day Tom has a two-hour soccer practice and Huck has an art lesson. It’s now 6:15 p.m. and I’m nowhere near done preparing for this fair because I keep leaving the house to drive kids around to their various activities. Between the boxes covering the living room floor and the books covering the dining room table, it looks like we’ll have to dine out tonight. Not a bad end to a very busy day.
See you at the fair!
