Ongoing projects for this week -> great closets purge of 2016, finish organizing/cleaning small guest room, finish cleaning other two walls of garage, get back patio/deck area ready for spring
For those of you who don't remember - take a look at my March list and my progress on it.

March To-Do List

1. Pick up 10,000 sticks in yard from winter ice, snow, and storms. (If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll note this a recurring theme...) I mean, I've done 3/4 of this, so I'm counting it as finished.

2. Rake out leftover leaves from front landscape beds. (Yeah, some of the leaves fell late out front, and I never worry about the leaves in the backyard. I just consider them a natural mulch - lol.) This only counts in the front yard, just fyi.

3. Cut down all miniature trees currently growing in landscape beds. (Whew - maple trees are the worst for sending out little sprouts.) Um, yeah, this is why I can barely walk this week from sore muscles.

4.  Get all limbs off of the roof. (I'm not sure how to do this since I don't own a ladder and don't plan to actually get on the roof myself. Maybe borrow a leaf blower? Or an extension for my broom? Or hope for a really windy day? Hmm...)  Nope - no clue how to proceed with this. Guess I'll just hope for a big storm to blow them off the roof.

5. Have someone investigate bird family potentially living in my chimney. (Has anyone else had that happen? What is involved? I can hear them sometimes, and it's freaking me out. Who do you hire to do that, a chimney sweep? Are chimney sweeps even a thing? I can't get the whole Mary Poppins thing out of my head now...thanks.) Nope, haven't heard them in a while. Maybe that means they left. Or they're dead. I guess I'll know for sure in a few weeks if my chimney and living room start to smell. Ay yi yi!


I'll check back in and let you know how these grand plans went. What do you have planned for spring break, if you're lucky enough to get one? If not, what spring projects or plans have you made for the evenings and weekends when you aren't working? I'd love to know I'm not the only one with a lengthy to-do list. :)

  1. Hmmmm. I like how you are making/recording your "to due" list on your blog. Good way to help keep accountable.
