I have been very busy racing around today and flinging myself at projects (that have an uncanny knack of dodging when I'm trying to catch them unawares).

Nevertheless, I've done a little work on the Harper's Monthlies that have been hogging my desk. I think the fixative will stay the rot on the leather. They already look 100 times better than when I pulled them out of their box (you'll have to imagine how bad they were before!). I've fixed the five in the picture below and have 9 more to work on. Some of those other nine are in seriously crummy shape, though and needing major repair (detached covers, missing spines, etc.). I'll do what I can with them, but I'm putting them off until next week since I already spent enough time with the books for one weekend. No telling how well they'll keep with the fixative, but if it saves them from evisceration for another few years, it'll have been worth it. And now I have been fussing with their sad state so much I haven't even really had a chance to look at what's in them! When the fumes clear, I'll probably put them by my bed so I can flip through them at night.

In other news, I have been working on Reconstruction's website all week and it's mostly in order, but I have so much content to post and haven't even begun! My morning and much of last night was eaten up in messing with the archive section. I'm still not satisfied with it, but it'll do for the time being. Still hoping to "launch" the website tomorrow, but it's going to be a tight squeeze.

Of course I'll never get it done if I'm here goofing on LJ.

P.S. Took that picture with my new camera. It's a Canon PowerShot A2000 IS. Not sure how I like it yet. I still need to figure out how to use all the buttons, etc.

P.P.S. I seriously need some new avatars.

Happy Sattidy all!
