Getting it done- Summer list is over

Filed under: Plans — by Alison @ 2:44 pm

It seems that summer has ended, and I have decided to retire my summer to-do list. Some items are migrating to the fall list. But others will have to be retired. The gardening and landscaping of the backyard was not finished, and may never be 😉

We celebrated the end of summer with a great BBQ. There ended up being too many people to dance on the deck, but the cupcakes made up for it.

The summer list:

  • Replace deck
  • Replace bathroom sink
  • Fix up front door (fall)
  • Drapes for front windows and dining room (fall)
  • Fix family picture wall
  • Clean up vegetable patch
  • Plant something in vegetable patch (not going to happen)
  • Create organized craft cupboard – supplies purchased (fall)
  • Arrange child care for the fall
  • Use restaurant gift certificates
  • Book hotel for U2 concert
  • Book hotel in Montreal
  • Book hotel in Tremblant
  • Get plans drawn up for kitchen reno project – ON HOLD
  • Stain pretty new deck
  • Landscape around pretty new deck (NGTH)
  • Host BBQ/dance party

The fall list:

  • Fix up front door
  • Blinds for dining room
  • Paint kitchen
  • Replace kitchen floor
  • Purge baby gear
  • Basement landing
  • Tidy basement storage
  • Sell house

Anything exciting planned for your fall?



  1. I need to start getting things done again. Number one on my list – getting healthy. For crying out loud enough with the sick! 😉
