Sort through boxes upon BOXES of books in the Washington garage, and begin the deliveries to the Friends of Ilwaco Library to shelve, or more likely sell to raise funds for other titles and needs. (Most of the books were beach-friendly paperbacks ideal for quick sale and fund-raising.)
Probably close to two hours sorting through the books (don't you think, Mom?) and loading them into decent boxes. A few minutes to load six of the cases into the truck, a few minutes to drive to the library and back, a few minutes to deliver to the library - and a few minutes to put the library cart back together after I inadvertently disassembled it while attempting to get over the library threshold.
The garage/rummage sale effort probably yielded some cash for the local animal shelter, but the remainder of the belongings have been hanging out in the very large garage ever since. We cleaned out the kitchen items earlier this week. And on another day went for the book sort, pack, cleanout. TODAY I merely delivered the books - and rebuilt the library's cart.
YES! Another big project that left a dent on the BIGGER project.
