one day

This photo duo touches my restless soul 
in the aftermath of the previous post.
You see, one of those infamous areas 
of 'unfinished business' is the bedroom, 
which we'll get to tackle one day (after the hallway),
creating a separate study/library area in one end. 
Here's me imagining myself when it's done,
(well perhaps not in those heels :). )

Until then it's still a case of contending 
with piles of books strewn here and there
and stuffed in boxes... 

“As the hours crept by, 
the afternoon sunlight bleached 
all the books on the shelves 
to pale, gilded versions of themselves 
and warmed the paper and ink inside the covers 
so that the smell of unread words 
hung in the air.” 
― Maggie StiefvaterShiver

I lurrved that quote,
want, need, want books
from floor to ceiling,
not in boxes :)

Kiva kuulla uudesta lukijasta,

Let's keep those fingers crossed for both of us,
I'm sure it's quite a sure possibility :)
