Whoever said that “April showers bring May flowers” wasn’t kidding about the first part! Yesterday we got 5-7 inches of rain that I (and later, we) worked very hard to keep out of our basement. I lost two pounds (what?!) and our basement stayed dry. We’ve gotten a couple quotes for fixing our water drainage issues, but the work won’t be done for another month or so.
Today, the first of May, is a beautiful day! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the doors are wide open.
And it’s time to set some new monthly goals. These are my goals for the month of May:
- spring clean the house. As you can see from the picture above, I’m starting with the chest freezer.
- finish the kids’ bathroom makeover. This is one of my goals for the year, and my progress has stalled. I still want to paint, make new curtains, and hang some art on the walls.
- add a project gallery to the blog. I want to make it easier for you and others who stop by to find older projects that are still worth checking out.
- sew something. It’s been far too long since I sewed anything, but last night I reorganized some of my sewing supplies, and I’m eager to work on a new sewing project.
