I haven’t made a monthly to-do list since spring. (We actually have accomplished everything on the May List except finishing the master closet and, sad to say, going to the gym.) The cooler weather and clear days are an encouragement to make a big push before the end-of the-year holidays are upon us.
First we’re going to see if we can get the bed frame for the master bedroom cut down and refinished.
We even received an email from Chad with some helpful suggestions. While all this is fresh in my mind I’d like to get started on this project. (And finish it, of course.)
While the bed is pulled away from the wall to mount it on its frame we should install the baseboard trim that is still blocking our upstairs hallway.
Since we’re concentrating on projects in the master suite I’d like to stain the doors to the closet much like the ones in the conservatory.
An ongoing project that I’m up against every October is planning and learning music, especially Christmas music, to teach my choir.
No entertaining planned for October.
At the end of the month Charlie, Sug, and I have a day-trip to the Statue of Liberty planned.
Our tickets are for the crown so we need to be in good physical shape to make the climb.
Bringing two large plastic hanging bags from the attic I was able to clear up a big pile of clothes that hadn’t been worn in over 20 years. In addition to old coats and handmade baby clothes there were more children’s Halloween costumes.
I plan to photograph and list all costumes on Craigslist before the 10th of the month.
And I want to get rid of our old computer. I’ve been dragging my feet because I had wanted to save some of the photos on it.
It’s been plugged in for years without being used or hardly used. We have a new set-up now so it is time for this relic to go.
In a separate subject under outsourcing I’d like to hire Sug’s contractor to install window trim on 3 interior windows in the house.
Two round windows and the window in the master closet are trickier than we think we can manage ourselves.
The most important improvement is that I’m heading back (once again) to the gym beginning Monday morning.
The key will be consistency.
That’s a monthful for sure.
Is October your turn-around month?? Or do you wait for January?
