10 Tasks in 10 Days Challenge

 Cha Cha at Sit, Relax and Read is challenging us to complete 10 tasks in 10 days. Make a list of about 20 things you’d would like to get done and then have a goal for 10 of them to be done in 10 days. On  Friday, June 24th,  I will meet you at Cha Cha’s who is having a link party and share The Glade’s list with the blogging world.  Here it is:

  1. Scrape, prime and paint cottage trim

Ten Tasks


Author: Jo

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
