My original plan for today had been to travel two hours to Abingdon, Virginia to explore the annual Highland Arts Festival. But last night, after the three hour weekly shopping trip my joints ached so much and I was so tired, I knew that a trip requiring substantial walking was out of the question for today. Instead I will reschedule the trip for next week -- an appointment I had next week got rescheduled for September, so I have more time next week. The thing about RA is that you can live a full life, you just have to recognize your limitations and work with them.
This turned out to be a fortuitous decision, as the thunderstorms and rain that was predicted for last night has extended well into the afternoon today, and would have made walking around among craft booths in an open grassy area a bit dicey.
Since I had cleared the decks of "paid employment" as John likes to call it, instead I turned my attention to a household project -- cleaning up and reorganizing bookshelves. While I have the books off the shelves, I've decided get really anal and enter all the information on each book into an Excel spreadsheet. John had already done this for a couple thousand books stored in his study, but the few thousand in my study, the living room and family room have yet to get that treatment. Once complete I will no longer have to run all over the house trying to figure out whether or not I still have a book and where it might be.
