Goals for February

As we enter February, my goals for this year are progressing, not as fast as I like, but winter months force me indoors to remodel the inside.

The bottom part of the dining room gets painted this month and maybe some special touches, such as molding.

Living room baseboards get painted this month. Next month, the living room walls gets painted. I painted this entire house and thought maybe the living room needs new paint. These walls were painted 12 years ago... yes they need a fresh coat of paint.

I sewed this pillow but need to finish the duvet cover for my daughter's condominium.

Spring cleaning continues with all the walls and baseboards get vacuumed and washed. The copper cookie cutters need polishing.

We are having a couple of dinner parties and a "man" shower for our future son-in-law. Invites, favors and a fun time needs to be planned for the end of the month. Wedding planning is going well but I am a little panicked. However, I know we have a plan and need to work the plan. My daughter and I have dedicated one afternoon a week to the wedding and we have been working down the list.

Have you made a plan for the month? Where are you on your New Year's Resolutions?
