The 10 in 10 challenge: Day 8

Day 8 was not as productive as the weekend, but a few things were finished. My mom actually replaced my dead pansies in the pots on the front porch for me. She had a few extra that weren’t going to end up in her garden, so she brought them over and planted them for me! What an awesome mom, huh?

The only other thing that happened was donating those three random books in the back of my car. I took them into a thrift shop on my way from school to work. Easy peasy.

Here’s how I’m doing after 8 days:

1. Steam & hang other living room curtain
2. Pick up photo from Target & hang in gallery wall frame
3. Hang picture collage frame near master bedroom
4. Edge back lawn
5. Pull weeds in garden near street
6. Pull weeds in garden near neighbors
7. Pull weeds in garden near house
8. Pull weeds in garden near carport
9. Organize coupons
10. Replace dead pansies with impatiens (front garden & pots on front porch)
11. Hang closet doors
12. Organize spare room
13. Clean up carport (rocks, grass, furniture pieces)
14. Replace dead marigolds in back yard with living ones
15. Move wedding arch wood pieces to back yard
16. Paint bathroom vanity
17. Organize bathroom vanity

18. Paint dining chairs
19. Paint dining table
20. Pull/dig up weeds in backyard
21. Donate the three random textbooks in the back of my car
22. Clean up/paint antique chalkboard easel

23. Apply for Win, Lose, or Blog season 5
24. Clean up small antique window
25. Clean up large antique window
26. Decorate on top of china hutch
27. Paint frames & hang up
28. Take carpet remnants from basement stairs & put in garbage
29. Find a mirror to hang in hallway
30. Finish gallery wall
31. Get rid of dirt pile in driveway
32. Paint front door red
33. Bring grill over from Wrights’ house
34. Move tall dresser to my parents’ house
35. Replace hardware on vanity
36. Hang a towel rack/ring on wall in bathroom
37. Replace the remaining door knobs (bathroom, spare room, office, master closet)
38. Add curtains to master bedroom windows
39. Build/sand/paint a bookshelf from reclaimed drawers
40. Hang photos in hallway

22 1/2 tasks down in a week! I doubt much will be accomplished in the last two days of this challenge. It’s just too darned hot to do anything outside by the time I’m off work, and we don’t have the finances to do most of the rest of everything. The only thing I can really do is replace the vanity hardware and finish the gallery wall with scrapbook paper. We will see how thing go!

Thanks for reading!
