Why is Life Cold?
i actually have a very happy life. i just saw this graphic one day and got an inspiration for another blog.
why not write about the stuff that makes life cold? from the huge, catastrophic, life-altering events to the seemingly trivial, little incidents
that rub you the wrong way. it doesn't have to be a personal experience, it can be something observed.
on writing these down, my intent is to learn to appreciate life more and have a better handle on things when life throws you a curve ball. i want whoever
will read this to contemplate, not get depressed. hopefully, you'll share with me your experiences as well so we can learn from each other.
This past weekend, I finally was able to finish (or at least tackle the big part of) organizing my closet. We decided to convert one of the bedrooms in our house to 1/3 my closet, the rest an extension of the master's bathroom. Since our house is very old and needs a lot of work, we have been tackling about two projects per year. Last year it was replacing all the windows and the re-stucco-ing of the whole exterior. This year is building my closet and remodelling the master's bathroom.
I was hesitating on posting this, since it's such a personal space, but I'm really proud of my husband who did 90% of the work (I just installed the shoe racks, assembled the drawers, and provided the clothes, hee hee). So, welcome to my closet! My very green closet...

finally finished the shoe racks!
my favorite fixture - the light
time to fill in with stuff, starting with the short hang...
then the drawers...
then the double hang...
and finally the shoe wall (best part of it? there's room for more!)
Hmmm, it looked better when it was empty. I still need to do a lot of work, like buy hangers and get rid of some more clothes. But I'm happy I can actually see my clothes now.
