I sat down on February 28 and made a list of everything I want to do room by room including the front and back yards.
Oh, my goodness -
105 items on the list divided by 31 days in March equals crossing off at least 3.4 projects each day.
I got a head start on the last day of February and I am keeping ahead of schedule - 27 items are already crossed off the list.
Some items on the list are fun - like hanging a bag of dried flowers on the front door.
Some are necessary - like organizing the bathroom shelves.
Some are easy - like buying flowers for the front door bench or
putting flowers on the back porch arch.
Some have triggered bigger changes in rooms - like shells on our bedroom armoire
which led to beach beach buckets and buoys on the Expedit and now has me planning big changes in our bedroom.
Some items involve purging - I have already taken one bag to the Goodwill, but instead of tossing this vase, I put a flower in it and dropped it off on a neighbor's porch.
Washing the windows has begun, but painting all the molding, baseboards and doors will take me most of the month - I have to paint at night so Lulu won't rub against all the freshly painted wood.
I am making time for fun things too so Monday I finally got around to making a baby quilt for a friend.
There won't be any more goals met until Saturday because tomorrow Steve and I are headed to June Mountain for a couple of days of skiing.
I might not finish the list, but already the house is looking fresher, cleaner and more organized - and that is my goal.
