The little jobs make a big difference

I write to you extremely tired again after another long but successful day  working on my new apartment. We, my grandpa and I, did so many things today, some very small, others not so much.

I have a closet!

I have a closet! Or the pieces that will become a closet when we put them together, hopefully soon. That's a big deal because up until now I had no idea where I was going to fit a closet. There was the time when we hoped to make the laundry room a part of my … Continue reading I have a closet!
