What I did

I have many many household projects that need to be finished this year (or that I want to finish this year just to get the damn things done), so in order to keep track (and make it seem like I’ve accomplished something) I am keeping this list:

  • swept out cobwebs from side door
  • cleaned out shed
  • moved garden boxes
  • planted spring seeds (Feb 28, 2016)
  • moved cement blocks for outside shower
  • removed old window dressings
  • spring clearing of front yard
  • removed old hardware from outside of house that no longer works
  • replanted jasmine plants from side of house to backyard
  • replanted porterweed to back fence
  • planted avocado tree (started from seed, so still very small)
  • emptied rain barrels (put water into garden boxes for spring plantings) to move them to side of house
  • put old hardware in storage up in attic
  • removed old cable wiring from house and sent to recycler
  • removed small fencing around plants (not needed and I want the plants to keep growing. It leaves so little for me to mow and weed with plants there instead of grass.)
  • donated misc bedding items to Goodwill, stored the rest in hall closet
  • removed shelving and brackets from other room
  • planted lantanas and watered EVERYTHING
  • trimmed away dead leaves and branches from plants
  • edged yard
  • put down newspaper and mulch to cover weeds
  • removed excess ferns and MIL tongue plants and replanted in neighbors yard (they need it)
  • pulled all weeds from backyard (what a pain in the ass)
  • raked up leaves and dead grass to use as mulch
  • repositioned rain barrels and used extra blocks to build up garden box
  • moved small orange tree from front to back yard
  • replanted other lantanas
  • repainted large bath
  • patched all holes in small bedroom and closet and repainted both
  • moved items from closet to make space in other closet
  • installed new base moulding in small bedroom, closet, and 2nd closet in my bedroom
  • installed new outlets and covers for small bedroom. These are the fancy kind with usb outlets in them.
