List Making at its Best
I’m a born list maker.
Whenever I clean out notepads from work I have to-do lists and household budgets interspersed with granting requirements and half developed curriculum. And it always seems like my goals are loftier than my abilities or my drive. Pretty much the only things that get knocked off my lists are the low-hanging fruits, like house cleaning and bill paying. The projects I have in mind never quite see the light.
Even though I don’t have a true summer vacation coming up, I do have summer to look forward to. Longer and warmer days of which to take advantage. If I can knock off 33.3% of this list I should be happy- that’s 33.3% more than what I’ve been up to lately.
Replace seat on yardsale chair
Recover wingback with this fabric from Anna Maria Horner’s drawing room collection
Finish knitting Agnes from Rowan’s Vintage Style
Make laptop bag (so I can stop carrying Regan’s backpack that is covered in Jack’s hair)
Learn to make a proper dress, skirt, and shirt (I’m infamous for taking short cuts and not following patterns)
Make curtains for the kitchen with Amy Butler’s Nigella fabric
Edited to add: I didn’t accomplish any of this. Ta daaaaa!
