Do you remember the good 'ole days of blogging when people posted photos of their view from there desks, or their bedroom window or even the view of the inside of their refrigerator? No? Well, I do. It was somewhat exciting getting to look inside some stranger's home and you didn't even have to get out of your PJs! That ability to reach across the Internet and peek into someone's life was kind of odd and exotic, at least I thought so. Then we became familiar with their cat photos, dog photos, garden shots...they were still nice, but not nearly so exotic anymore because we had started to know the writers like we knew our neighbors. Familiarity may not breed contempt, but it does breed boredom at times. Some bloggers still post photos of their meals and their shoes and their pets. Some, like me, post photos of garden harvests and food processing. Boy, that is an exciting venue for readers. (!)
Well, our weather here has been wet, wet like being in a 24 hour shower, wet like sitting in a leaky boat, wet like camping during the rainy season in South America. When weather is moldy like this I try to avoid eating vast quantities of chips and salsa, drinking too much wine, or raiding the chocolate candy jar and screaming at Congresspersons on TV. I instead pass the time re-organizing my life.
I once had a blog about the building of this house. I printed out all of the posts and then promptly deleted the blog as I felt it could be a security issue if someone nefarious stumbled across it. Anyway, if you once followed that blog, you will remember that I wanted a walk-in closet. Yes, I was no longer working and would no longer need a career wardrobe. Yes, I could sleep in and not be bumping butts with hubby as I did in our former "walk-in" closet, but I still wanted a REAL walk-in. I wanted a closet that did not smell musty, was not dark and had enough room to be organized.
Well, I got it. Wait for it.....I built a 12 foot by 10.5 foot walk-in closet. Of course, it stores bedding, gifts, boxed photos, and other junk as well as clothes. One would think with a closet this big it would be much easier to be organized...one would think. It takes about 6 to 8 months before the closet shelves become messy, too full, and things starting getting lost.
Here are some photos of the busy messy closet.
You are awful quiet out there in blogger land...! It IS neater and you will just have to take my word for it! Doesn't it give you just a little thrill to be admitted into my closet? Oh, the hole in the wall is where I dump our dirty clothes, there is a basket in the laundry room on the other side.
