Sittin’ Poolside

Loving The Summer

at the poolToday is a lovely day to be out by the pool enjoying the sun, the light breeze and a nice glass of iced tea.  I am very much celebrating the weekend, and simply loving life today with not a care in the world.   I have been thinking of a few home improvement projects I would like to accomplish this coming fall, and am already trying to think of ways I can procrastinate my way out of doing them.  hehe.   I am the queen of procrastination.

So in efforts to keep myself accountable, I thought I would blog out my list of thing I would like to have done around the house, and then try to report on them as I get them completed over the next year.  I don’t think I will be doing everything as a DIY, so I will be hiring some of this to be done.  I know my limits, and there are some things that are best left up to the professionals.   I for sure don’t like when things appear as if they were done by an amateur.

I am not sure if I will be able to do all of these things as I know the list is already bigger than the budget, but I figure if I list them out then I can pick and choose which ones become more of a priority

On with the list….in no specific order, simply how they came to my mind

  • Clean the gutters (I need to do this before fall gets here and fills them up again)
  • Have the outside trim of the house painted
  • Replace the railing and spindles on the stairs (currently they are looking dated)
  • Paint the guest room
  • Have a new fence put in, or possibly just power wash and restain the current fence
  • Garage Floor (either stain, or put down epoxy flooring)
  • Wash all windows (inside and out)
  • Have a landscaper come in and redo the flower beds in the front of the house.
  • Have a landscaper come and redo the landscaping in the back yard.
  • Paint the front door red.   (Not sure why, but I have always wanted a red door)
  • Get new patio furniture for the pool area

red door

Ok, that is a pretty huge list already, and I know I will not be able to get most of it completed, but I am going to really set my mind to do as much as I can to save some money, and also just to see what I am made of.  I am woman hear me roar.  lol

Time to Jump In

The sun is beating down, and my iced tea is nearly gone, I think it is time to close down this blog post for now and take a dip in the pool too cool off.  If I think of more things to add to the list I will come back and update this post.  I will do my best to keep you updated with pictures and posts as I do start completing and checking these items off of my list.   Let the games begin.

Until then I you will find me in the pool.  🙂   Have a great weekend y’all!
