AHH! June is over already?? Half the year is over!?!? I guess that means that half the things on my list should be crossed off. Well, let’s see…
Honestly, I don’t have much excitement to report for June so I’m not going to follow my typical format. I uploaded a ton of photos to Snapfish, we hosted a fun couple, we’ve lived here a year and have zero pictures on the walls, I rocked my cleaning checklist for about 1 day, blah blah blah…
I felt disappointed last month with my accomplishments because I was focusing so much on summer things. After some encouragement from some readers (I love you, guys!!) I’ve come up with an addition to my Insane List of Goals for the summer.
Insane Goals Summer Edition
(Since we are one month into summer & I wrote this list a couple weeks ago, some of these things have been accomplished and are already crossed off.)
Buy New Pool for Grace & Throw Out Old One
Refinish Patio Furniture – I have a table & chair set that needs sanded and refinished.
Clean Out Gutters
Add a Clothesline – I’m so sad our new house doesn’t have one already and it seems frugally foolish not to!
Weed & Mulch Flower Beds – The weeding will certainly happen (and has been happening for weeks and weeks and weeks), but we may not mulch in order to save money. I might go insane from the weeds though. Time will tell.
Plant More Shade Loving Flowers – Again this may or may not happen.
Dig Up Unwanted Plants – We have daffodils that never bloomed, bleeding hearts laying across the sidewalk and peonies growing in awkward spots. They all need to go.
Read 2 Books Each Month – This goal is for the adult summer reading program. I get one entry into a drawing for each book I read over the summer. In June I started 2 books, but haven’t finished them.
Try to “Preserve the Harvest” – I’m extremly thankful to have a good friend, Emily, who wants to do some of this crazy domestic stuff with me. We have a quite the list of things we want to accomplish:
- Rhubarb Jam
- Strawberry Jam
- Freeze Strawberries
- Freeze Blueberries
- Try New Zucchini Recipes
- Peach Jam
- Can Peaches
- Pizza Sauce
So there is my list. Maybe I should change the name of my blog to “Rebekah’s Never Ending Lists.”
What advice do you have for me? A book to add to my reading list? Your favorite zucchini recipe? Tips on natural weed killers? How to cure my obsessive list making???
