Clearing out and packing

Here is the closet in the guest room that I cleared out yesterday for our house-sitter. I thought she deserved some space for her things. I hope this will be adequate. I moved stuff from this closet into the other two closets in the other two bedrooms on this floor, and also moved a few things to the basement.

I threw out a bunch of old magazines that were taking up space in my closet. I was ruthless and just tossed them all--well almost all--into the recycling bin. I did save the old needlework magazines. Old needlework patterns and ideas last longer than old decorating ideas, though when I saw the magazine cover showing ideas for blue and white decorating I almost set it aside to hang on to--before tossing it in with the rest. I was ruthless, as I said.

And here are the books, maps CD's etc. that I have chosen to take. For now. That could change when I find out how much will fit in my suitcase.

There is so much information available on-line these days, that you don't need that many guide books. I have two compact maps of Paris that I like, so am taking both. The Paris Walks book has detailed descriptions of some walks and the Rick Steve's Paris has lots of good current information about making the most of your time in Paris. We like his books a lot. And of course my Bescherelle for verbs. And my language book and 4 CD's. I'm up to lesson 68 out of 70, so will have completed the whole course by the time I leave, but I think I want to take them anyway to review.

Thanks to all of you who posted comments so far. I appreciate the interest and hope to be able to show you more inteseting pictures starting next week.

I think its finally going to work for me. lol! Im looking forward to hearing all of your adventures. Your house sitter is sure to appreciate the closet space. Much better than living out of a suitcase.
