My Summer Projects

by Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett / L.L. Bartlett

Every summer I think I'm going to get a LOT done.

HA!

Well, I still have high hopes for this summer.  And if you think about it, it won't REALLY be summer for another 17 days, so I'm good, right?

Revamping the living room, painting my office and the enclosed porch.  Building some shelves (or at least revamping the ones I've already got to make them look more "cottagy" (which means rip off the backs and put in white beadboard)). I've got to paint the molding in the bathroom, too.

Oh, and I need to finish a book that's a little behind AND a short story that's nearly done but I can't seem to figure out the end.  Plus I'm working on two other writing projects I'd like to have done by the fall. (And can I squeeze in some time to stop and smell the roses somewhere, too?)

My summer is pretty well booked.

What projects have you got on your to-do list ... and is there any possibility you'll get them all done?
