One cannot move to China without doing a lot of sorting, selling and storing, as well as the packing. Over the past two weeks or so, I brought enough book to Half Price Books to earn about $120.00. This is a bit more than a dollar per pound, I would think. I think I’m okay with luggage. Today and tonight I sorted, organized and packed about 14 book boxes. This is near to 560 pounds. I may be storing by the pound, so knowing the weight of all I own is necessary. I hope the bathroom scale is fairly accurate! Certainly this is well more than half of weight of the moth-eaten belongings I own. I would like to depart with even more. Perhaps this will occur over the next few days. I think I can. I think I can. Tomorrow, pictures, photo albums and assorted shelf/display items.
Oh. I heard on the radio today that July in Austin area was the hottest on record: an average daytime high of 102 F. Yesterday’s (1 August) high was 107!
