I remember when we used to go looking for a farm, and we would drive past farm houses for hours. As we drove along, I would often comment "If those folks painted that house it would look so great", or "I wonder why they don't fix that fence? It would look so much better if they did".
If only I knew then what I know now!
The "TO DO" list is never done. At last count, our To Do list had 57 items on it, everything from fixing fencing, building chicken coops, and repairing the cattle barn roof to such sundry items as finally finding the time to dehead my tulips! It seems that every time I turn around, another "To Do" pops up.
And so you begin to prioritize. Certain items go on "next years" list, some items go on the "winter list" and you begin to tackle the items that need doing immediately.
The trouble is that between us, we often have differing opinions of what can wait, and what can't. I don't understand why it is that the man cave garage needs to be cleaned out immediately, but then again - since it is said man that is doing most of the work I suppose I should let him put that one top of the list.
