I'm not going to say a word about how I can't believe August is over and September is starting. Not one word. ; )
Here are your September to-do's though:
*clean out the gutters
*remove dead tree/shrub limbs
*lubricate any squeaky doors/windows
*plant your fall mums
*aerate the grass
*flip your mattress/wash ALL the bedding
*clean the windows
*if you are thinking Christmas gifts at all, begin making/buying
Not too bad this month! Pretty do-able. : ) Again, if you have children/grandchildren, let them help with age-appropriate things.
It's been a pretty good day. Any day where I can look back and see SOME progress is a pretty good day:
*three loads of laundry - my husband did the ironing
*spent the whole morning in the kitchen - cleaning off open shelves, going through stuff in the cupboards (giving a few things away). I also lined the outer edge of each shelf with washi tape:
picked this up at Hobby Lobby - kind of a vintage feel to it. : )
*cleaned off appliances that are out
*washed the rugs
*re-writing recipes into a notebook that lies flat:
I like notebooks so much better than cards - I want to stain this up as I use each recipe like our grandmas and moms did. Then it can also be passed along to whoever might like it. : )
*I then washed my makeup and hair brushes:
something I don't do often enough!
*then, lastly, I started a fleece blanket to give away.
That leads me up to now. Supper will be leftovers from last night which means no cooking just heating everything up and tossing a salad to go with it. Yea!
I hope this finds you doing well and enjoying taking care of your homes. Thank you for dropping by and hope to see you soon. God bless.
