Other Than Reading...
This week was sort of a busy one. I met with the realtor who will be listing my house to make some beginning plans. I met with a painter who is going to neutralize the colors in my house to make it more appealing to potential buyers.
A friend and I got together Friday evening to start dividing stuff into four piles - take, rummage sale, donate, or trash. We got through two closets. We'll be meeting the next few Friday evenings to continue sorting stuff. Next week -- my office!
I have to have my books packed and the bookshelves loose from the walls before the painter comes in. He and my realtor will be picking the colors since I don't care what color the walls are once I'm gone. I'm hoping to have him come and paint the beginning of May so that I have time to organize and box. I really don't want my things to sit in boxes for months either. I need to contact movers and get them set up to move my stuff around the 8th of June.
My realtor wants me to have flyers to hand out during my rummage sale May 19 - 20 in case anyone who comes might be interested in buying the place. Plans are now that no showings will happen until after May 20 to give me a chance to unclutter.
Read Last Week
Gone Without A Trace by Mary Torjussen was a creepy psychological thriller with a very unreliable narrator. It kept me on the edge of my seat. My review will be posted on April 6.
The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick is the latest by this prolific author. She has changed time periods and settings from her usual. This one is set in 1930s California. The characters and story were great. My review will be posted on May 4.
Alice & the Assassin by R. J. Koreto. This historical mystery stars a seventeen-year-old Alice Roosevelt and her Secret Service officer. It will be released on April 11.
This week will also be filled with April releases from my review stack.
