Accomplishments?


What projects or work around the house did you get done this summer?

It doesn't have to be something around the house. Did you do something you always wanted to do or, as they call it, mark something off your bucket list?

This summer, unfortunately, I had a lot of free time so I become a fixer-upper, fanatic for doing things right and starting more that I can get done before the seasons limit activities. The good thing is that I have a better idea of what to do and not to do next summer.

I already learned there is no end to potential interior projects and things they grow into.

Didn't get any "stitches" - no broken bones - didn't "FUBAR" anything -
(at least, not to the point that I couldn't fix it!)
Good Summer!

Moved into a new house, built a bed frame from scratch, painted a couple of rooms... now we get to go back to work on the trailer. Hopefully this will be our year to finish it.

Accomplishments?


Built a new backyard fence, planted too many tomatoes, finished restoring our first floor wooden storm windows, took down a dying tree in the front yard, took down a nasty old sheet metal shed and planted grass in its footprint (and it actually grew!), and of course painted painted painted. Still painting.

Still to do: rebuild my mom's back fence. Should go quick...I hope.
