Whew! It’s been a busy May, like it is every year. In the last couple of weeks we’ve had 2 graduation parties, a birthday party, a baby shower, a garden swap event, and out of town guests (or we were the out of town guests) nearly every weekend. When we were home, it was catch-up time to get chores and errands done.
So with all this hubbub, it’s definitely time for an update of the to-do list!
Here was the project list I put up way back in…..oh, early March?
Let’s see how I did….
Homemade rain barrelGo here to get the dish. Make and put up clematis trellises – 3 of themCheck it out here.
- Master bedroom “built ins” and window treatments (bwahahahaha! I got the curtain rod up and stole the guest room curtains, does that count?)
Make compost platform/compost sifter out of mystery wooden boxThe wooden box will be going to the dump soon. It’s too decrepit to modify.
- Prime and paint porch ceiling
Repair side fence Plant veggie garden Plant 2 new clematis – one on deck, one on side fence Plant lilac and Karl Foerster
- Sow sunflower,
cuke, and squashseeds
- Nursery Trip:
Perennials: Shasta daisy, new hosta, whatever else
- Annuals: alyssum, petunias, planter fillers etc
- Plant pots (half are planted)
And the “if it works out” projects that may end up summer projects:
Revamp mom’s country bench for porchI dig my new yellow bench.
- New living room window treatments – bought the fabric!
Fix/improve guest headboardPlans have changed – there’s no longer any room for a headboard!
Not too bad The summer list is coming soon, and there are already some things to cross off!
