Thirteen things I will do this summer.
2. Replace the metal porch railing with white vinyl fencing.
4. Gravel one flower bed and mulch another.
5. Get the carpet in the family room cleaned.
11. Paint the neglected, faded shutters on the house.
12. Read the 5 books from this list that I haven't yet read.
It is so very satisfying to cross things off a list, isn't it? I am MUY excited to share pics from item #3. I have a couple more finishing touches to do, then I will post all about the dining room makeover.
I am working on reading the books from #12. I will get those done for sure, it's just a matter of getting the books finished. Just about the only reading time I have is right before bed and I often fall asleep before I get much reading done! Then I get sidetracked with other books. I am getting ready to start Blood Orange by Drusilla Campbell, then I will read The Dive from Clausen's Pier by Ann Packer.
Getting my daughter off the paci was one of the biggest accomplishments to date. She was a paci addict so going cold turkey was scary, but it worked. She hasn't asked for it in several days. I am glad that is over and done with. (And for all of you wondering, I did throw them all out just last week. Not a paci is left in the house...that I know of!)
I think I will work on item #11 this week. I am not going to get real involved and take the shutters down. I will just slap a fresh coat of paint on them and call it done.
The other items...eh. We'll see if they get finished. The most important ones (to me) have been done so I am happy.
How about you? Is there one thing you are hoping to get done this summer?
