Take Hubby to Lock 16 steak house in Lima for his 61st birthday.
Start the new budget and not have to rob Peter to pay Paul.
Have the money saved for Christmas.
Place order to King Arthur Flour for specialty items we are low on.
Place order to Amazon for kitchen pans needing replaced.
To have pantry fully stocked.
To have pantry inventoried to base menu on how much is there ..First note I do not start eating mainly from the pantry until Nov 1st. Just a habit from childhood most likely. Hubby's mom said that is how she did also when raising the kids.
Example I have 80 pints of pickled beets, that's at least 1 per week or 1 every 4 days (yes I can eat that much). I have 150 slices of green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes. We eat 8 slices per meal , that's 18 meals. So I can serve it every other week for 9 months or every week for 4 1/2 months. I have 10 cups of corn in freezer that is 10 meals, that's 5 months...(I have corn to process still to add to this). I want these amounts so I can use them up instead of buying something else at the store.
I want to have the bedroom winter curtains done.
I want to have to railing to the deck done. Which means I have to decide how I want it done. I know I want 4x4 posts... I just keep thinking about what I want between the posts as the deck is 3 ft off the ground and I don't want Wilbur and Rascal jumping off and getting hurt. Charlotte is still young enough to handle that jump... she jumps 5 ft high sideways as it is.I think she has springs instead of legs, must be the terrier part in her.
I want 80 % of the energy audit items completed... and that is on me as Hubby can't caulk worth crap and of course there is tons of caulking to do. LOL.
I want to wash the winter clothes and get them in drawers etc
I want to get the summer clothes in storage.
I need new tennis shoes, not want but actually need.
I want to build a closet in the laundry room.
I want to have summer curtains down, washed, dried and stored
I want to have winter curtains washed, dried and hung
I want to decorate for the fall.
I want to complete 15 things on the punch list.
I would like to make some homemade preserved lemons, roasted red bell peppers and balsamic reduction to add to the pantry.
Take scrap metal, old appliances and old trailer to junk yard which should pay for his tags for the bike and the one trailer.
All vehicles including tractor,mowers etc ready for winter
All air barriers listed in energy audit done or at least started (can't be in attics until it cools down) but the bottoms of porches can be done now.
