Music Monday! Afternoons & Coffeespoons

'Times when the day is like a play by Sartre
When it seems a book burning's in perfect order'...
 
Brilliant lyrics to a great song by The Crash Test Dummies.
 
 
A song based on a poem by T.S. Eliot, and a song I though was fitting for today. 
 
As I sit and stare at the boxes in the basement, living room, and piles of stuff throughout the house, at least I have this peppy tune to make light of the situation.

I am prepping for a yard sale, compiling piles of our things that we no longer need or want. Add to that about 20 boxes of books just picked up at an auction, and I wholeheartedly agree with the lyrics posted at the beginning. A book burning may just be a good idea!
A few of the boxes
But no, these were bought in the hopes of re-selling to make a wee bit of money to actually help us in our move. The reality is that this is a task I am quite overwhelmed with. I love books, but this is ridiculous! 

'Too much of a good thing can be taxing', as Mae West said.
A few more of the boxes
If I had the time, it would be great to sort through, scan some, and read others, If I had time to wear pajamas in the daytime, and measure afternoons with coffee spoons, I would do just that. 
But, sadly, that luxury seems so far off.
And even  more of the boxes
Back to pricing, sorting, and gearing up for a humungous yard sale, with GREAT DEALS on some very interesting and hard to find books! 

I hope people show up.
