Well, it’s after Memorial Day which means SUMMER! And, some projects to do around the house. Inspired by BFF Mandy, here’s what we want to accomplish this summer. Unlike her list, ours is tailored for the slackers that we are. Trust me, just getting even half of this list done will be incredible.
-reshape flower bed and add a few nice perennials
-new bench (ours is rotting)
-add a bed around the new mailbox
-clean out areas along the fence and force honeysuckle into submission
-cut down dead pine tree
-fix up shed with some paint and a new door handle/lock
-find some inexpensive furniture (this one’s iffy…)
-rewire electric and cable wiring for new set-up
-plan and begin built-in shelves and cabinets around fireplace
The lower level really is a huge project so I expect that will run into the fall as well once we start painting and looking at furniture. I also see small projects popping up like framing and hanging the artwork for over the bed and replacing things here and there. Also, our “office” is a disaster. The path we had created to get to the closet no longer exists. Something must be done about that mess…
We also have some items on the list that aren’t house related…We both plan to ride a 100-mile “century” ride at the end of July and I’m seriously considering a duathlon in August. We also have a much-needed beach vacation with the whole family in August (what a way to celebrate my birthday, right?)
Other than that, you can find me at the pool. The best part of summer.
