Summer Project List

The list is long.

Too long.

(But not as long as that at Young House Love. Yeesh!)

At this point in every cure, all the plans that I have made--and the projects I expected myself to do--sit, mocking me. Some of them are still on the list from past cures. It really is time to do something about it!

One thing I did do this week--TA DA! and before I even had a chance to put it on this list. It waited patiently all winter, too--

Can you tell?
Sorry about that nasty before shot.
Hmm. A shovel and a broom, though seasonal, may not be the best of decor at the front door!

Now, to get on a ladder and do the trim on that roof line.

wow that is a lot of projects! I can't wait to see the results, and I have to say I'm jealous because I can't even formulate a list of projects in my head despite the fact there are lots of areas of the house that need work...

Oh my! Your summer to-do list looks like mine. I hope you get most, if not all of it done.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Come back anytime and become a follower!

Your list is impressive! I'll be cheering for you as you whittle away at it, and eagerly awaiting the results!

(I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't quite get to everything in this Cure!)

The trim around the door looks great, and the shovel and broom could symbolize the industry with which you'll be tackling projects this summer... ... ... *grin*
