Plan for the Weekend

It’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow so I’m going to start my to-do list tonight.

I need to find a place for this shelf unit. Maybe the basement.

    13.  Paint bedroom doors.

    The master bathroom door has a small hitch when opening it that needs to be adjusted. Then it needs some paint.

If I can execute half of the list I’ll be extremely happy.

Are you working or taking it easy this weekend?

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.

  1. My cable wire snapped off yesterday late afternoon. No tv, internet or phone – cell doesn’t work well in the house. New lifestyle for a day or two. Good luck with your list.

  2. That’s a list for one day? I’d be happy if I even got one of those things done! Maybe that’s why our projects take so long. 🙂 I need to keep painting trim, but it’s raining here, too, so we’re going to the Seattle Art Museum to see the Yves St. Laurent exhibit.
