On with August! is officially August.
Here's how I did on my July to do list:

  • Clean out both pantries in kitchen
  • Seed and weed both the front and back lawn-Done!
  • Paint bedside tables
  • Power wash outside of all the house windows-1/2 done, it started raining and I couldn't finish :(
  • Power wash the front porch-Done!
  • Plant flowers in the planters on front porch and back deck-Done!
  • Have coffee with dear friend-Done!

    So a good portion of the list done which is not bad considering I made the list on July 25th  and only gave myself a week which actually is cut down to pretty much 3 days cause I am not gonna lie, when you don't get home from work until like 6:00pm and you still have to make dinner, visit with your family, clean up from dinner, make lunches for the next day and try and get to bed at a decent hour, there isn't much time for projects. Not during the week for this gal! Maybe I am lazy but I just don't have it to me to do much other than keeping up with the day to day stuff on weekday evenings.
    Oh and I came down with a nasty cold over the weekend as well which slowed me down. It didn't keep me in bed until yesterday. It came to full force yesterday, I was a snotty, feverish hacking mess yesterday and did not get out of bed. Nasty.

    Anyway, so sad-the bedside tables remain naked. Unpainted and neglected still. Maybe in August!
    And the pantries are still need some attention. I wil carry this over to August as well.

    And now for the August list:

    • Paint bedside tables
    • Clean out kitchen pantries
    • Continue to maintain the flowerbeds and keep them weed free
    • Clean out storage room
    • Have garage sale
    • Spend day with dear friend T helping her set up a website and blog
    • Make 3 new supper recipes
    • Finish power washing the outside of windows
    • Take Mom on a picnic
                                                         Cheers to a productive month!!!
