Hi everyone! It’s been a busy week. We’ve had three rounds of company that we thoroughly enjoyed for three days of the week. We are getting very good at playing card and board games with people.
I’ve been baking and cleaning. Plus we’ve been decluttering, listing items online, and selling them.
I’ve also been preparing my bullet journal for the next few months. I don’t think I’ll have much time in April or May, so I’m setting it up ahead of time. I also am setting up March now. I’m keeping it very simple. The one exception I made was to color the heart design above from an adult coloring book, to tape over a major mistake in my journal. It’s my one soul creative endeavor this past week.
We revised our plan for moving to extend our time preparing for the move by a month. We decided that our weather was just too cold to do work in March on the house, and particularly the outside of the house. So we are currently planning to have the house up for sale by May 21st. We’ll see if we meet the revised deadline.
Why May 21st? It’s the beginning of a week long festival that draws thousands of people to our neighborhood on foot and by car. It would be nice to have a “For Sale” sign on the front lawn during that time.
Hubby is busy patching walls at the moment. The walls were fine until we had the house leveled before we had the kitchen renovated in 2014. Since then fine cracks have appeared in the plaster walls in different places. So there is need for some repair work and painting. Hubby thinks he can do it all. I’m a bit nervous about him doing it in a timely fashion, but I know he’ll do an excellent job of it. If push comes to shove, we’ll call in help to finish up.
We also have a front entry to finish off, and floors to refinish. That’s the inside. Not sure what to do about the outside. We’d like to replace one fence, and redo 75 year old parging on the outside of the foundation, but don’t know if there will be time.
Our weekend plans are to go to a party, and check out the church annual meeting. And sell more stuff. 🙂 Talk to you all next week! 🙂
