30 Projects In 30 Days: Three Days Left!

No surprise, we are going right down to the wire with our 30 Projects in 30 Days task list. I have had a few people mention that they plan to use the full weekend for projects even though September 30 is on Saturday. I am on board with the idea. As far as I am concerned, this year, September has 31 days. We will start October on the 2nd. Agreed?

Because of this crazy challenge, I don’t have time a for a lot of chit chat today. I decided to go all tough love and reorder my list so I could get a better picture of just how much I have to accomplish in the next three days. The items in boldface are tasks that are complete. Items in bold and italics are things that I am working on today, as soon as I publish this post. The rest of the tasks? Well, at least there is Friday.

It would not be a #30ProjectsIn30Days post without a few pictures.

On the chalkboard wall in the kitchen, I swapped out three dead plants (again!) for fresh ones–two asparagus ferns and a snake plant. I feel like the Angel of Death when it comes to the houseplants in this room.

Remember that time, three years ago, when we put a new ceiling in S’s room? Well, Saturday, we finally put the moulding back up.

And lastly, I sewed some prototype stinky shoe inserts for my running shoes. I made them out of old socks stuffed with kitty litter. Right now, I am just testing out the idea. If it works, I will create a pattern and post a tutorial.
