Happy birthday!

Sorry to send you wishes late!

Word for April: Plant
Not much of April left, but

I want to do this goal too.

I have the following to plant:

Vegetable Garden
  1. Tomato starts
  2. Zucchini seeds
  3. Basil starts (will need a cloche)
    (I already have chard and rhubarb growing in the veg garden)
Container Gardens
  1. Nasturtiums
  2. Something I got at the nursery – now I can’t remember what it’s called! It needs to be repotted.
  3. Ivy Geraniums
Flower Garden
  1. Daphne – I saw these all over Japan and fell in love. This will go where I used to have those nasty true geraniums that Charles pulled out thinking that they were buttercups :-)

New, New plan

First draft of the plan

First, in R’s room:

  • Sell or give away R’s desk (lower priority – can just be moved out for now)
  • Move all R’s books off her bookshelves to the basement
  • Re-install closet doors (lower priority)
  • R’s dresser emptied and contents moved to the basement

Then, in the basement:

  • Toys and games out of the storage closet
  • Purchase some means of clothing hang-up and storage for storage closet and install
  • R’s dresser and closet items then go into this, and also into the dresser where my athletic where currently resides
  • R’s books from her bookshelf go on the bookcase downstairs
  • Bed is made up

Then, back to R’s room:

  • My athletic wear into R’s dresser; I may move some other items in there too, freeing up some closet/dresser space in our bedroom
  • The long table I am using as a desk goes upstairs
  • Clear out one of the metal filing cabinets that is in the bonus room – contents reviewed, purged, and remainder stored in another way
  • Ideally, paint the metal filing cabinet, but this is a lower priority—then bring upstairs
  • Put in the metal filing cabinet and R’s old bookshelves my papers and items, purged and organized
