After too many winters like this we moved to sunny Florida and have never looked back.
I loved the article, very evocative writing. Thanks.

I'm right there with you - except your closets before you clean them are more organized than my are after they are organized! x, Carrie

In the same boat, but can't seem to find the motivation to start on the closets, or anything else. At least the sun is out today...

It was 62 degrees yesterday and about 25 right now...thus is winter in west KY.

Great minds think alike. I cleaned out the master closet day before yesterday. Haven't got the nerve to tackle the fabric closet yet...*sigh*

:You're only PRETENDING to have the blues, Kathleen! You organize closets & then WRITE about it? So industrious ...

Closets are much like grocery carts.

Everything fits real nice in the cart until you go through checkout and everything gets organized into bags. Then your groceries no longer fit in the cart and sometimes it takes two carts to get it out to the car.

That's how I feel about closets. If I started taking stuff out and organizing it, I would never be able to fit it all back in again. I'm sure if I relate my analogy to DH, he would agree that building another closet is out of the question. In fact, next time he complains about the bedroom closet, I'm going to do just that.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

Joan, what does UBER mean?

We have to empty 2 bedrooms and the closets by next Tuesday morning for the floor sanders. What a mess! I'm determined that half of it is not going back in! Would you all like surprise packages in the mail?? lol One of the rooms is my sewing/ebay/craft room/office, and it is full. I did the DIY thing and put shelves up all around the room, made work stations. Looked really cool the first week. haha

Not me. Got more orphan supplies and projects than I need, and more fabric than any human should own. Of course, Kathleen and my motto happens to be..."She who dies with the most fabric, wins"

I may take first place with children's color yarns and fabrics. I love bright colors, polka dots, daisies, turtles... My husband is going to faint when I pull all the yarn out of that room. Maybe I'll stuff it in pillow cases and he will think we have lots of pillows, teehee.

If you click on the UBER it's a link that will take you to the page that explains what it is (but it needs updating pretty bad). Here's the link too. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/hof.php

You captured the spirit of a gardener's winter, or should I say "lack of spirit," perfectly, Kathleen. A job well done. :-)

Now back to the doldrums...

Kathleen, I really enjoyed reading your article. I can certainly relate, but the "Winter blues" won't hit me for another couple weeks, when it does I'll blog about it. In the meantime I posted an article entitled The Joys of Winter. I would like to invite all of you to read it, I think that you will enjoy it. http://ozarkimages.blogspot.com . Thanks again for the article.
