Enregistrer Welcome to the last and final Stacking the Shelves post of the year. A post in which I'm not actually stacking anything. I did get a few books this week, but not much. As I said in last week's STS over at Reading Reality, my mother went into hospice last Thursday. She passed away on Xmas Day, and her funeral was Wednesday. It was a blustery 6 degrees in Cincinnati that day. I had to borrow one of her coats to have something halfway warm enough to wear at her graveside ceremony. Which felt more than a bit weird, but it still smelled like her perfume and that was surprisingly comforting.

We're finally home, but it seems that I brought a case of food poisoning home with me along with everything we cleaned out of her apartment. I'm toast. Which doesn't mean that you shouldn't add a link to your Stacking the Shelves post in the linky below.

Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings and a safe New Year's to you and yours.

Her house full of books also contains her husband, also in the library biz, and two cats who really run the place.

  4. Marlene, I am so sorry for your loss. My mother passed away five years ago of lung cancer, so I have some idea of how hard this must be. Take good care of yourself.
