List, 2017: April Plans

Here’s the plan for April:

We’re methodically getting ready to fit out our master closet.

The closet must be well on the way to being finished and all supplies off the first floor. Every weekend we get a little closer so I’m confident we’ll at least have all the lumber moved out of the first floor by El Cinco de Mayo, the day before we’re throwing a bridal shower.

We have our favorite dishes which include tangerine chicken.

Tomorrow is our oldest son’s birthday.  I gave him the choice of my cooking at home, going to a restaurant, or ordering Chinese in.  He chose Chinese at home. My favorite choice also.

This small Irish bowl and pitcher are reminders of the humble service
of Christ.

Easter is the third Sunday of April this year. We attend a lot of services during Holy Week so we have no plans after church other than to have dinner out.

Hoping I’m not needed.

The week after Easter I have been called to jury duty.  It seems to me I get this notice a lot and never seem to meet the criteria for opting out.

The Doo Wop Project

The weekend after Easter Charlie and I have tickets to see The Doo Wop Project. They’re a group of male singers who sing classic tight harmonies.  Sounds like a fun evening.

We’ll be inviting all the ladies of the church with this simple bulletin insert.

Finally we’re getting the house ready for a bridal shower. The ladies of my choir are inviting all the women of the church to celebrate one of our own who is getting married early in June.

The closet doors open onto the master bedroom.

After that list it doesn’t seem like the closet will get finished.

What are you working on this April?

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. Keeping my fingers crossed for your closet completion. I’m just doing more of the same – cleaning out, organizing and weeding, weeding, weeding in the garden.

  2. Little by little the closet will get done. You have a busy month. Enjoy it! And remember, if you are ever on trial you will want someone like you on the jury and will pray that the good people will not all get themselves ecxused. It is an important duty.

    1. You’re very right about jury duty. M y husband enjoys it immensely. I never get myself excused on purpose but it does seem I get the notice a lot and he never gets one. Jo
