1. The first item on the list was to remodel the upstairs bathroom. We had no idea it would take us almost the whole year, but I can now proudly check that off the list.
Let's revisit the old bathroom again:
2. Strip the wallpaper and paint the adjacent bedroom and hallway.
Well, almost. We hope to finish that today. Or maybe tomorrow. I'll let you decide if that counts.
3, 4, and 5. Repair the hole in the kitchen ceiling, add recessed lighting, and add moulding above the kitchen cabinets. Done, done, and done.
It might not have been fair to list those as three separate projects, but I'm glad I did, because it gets us over the half-way mark.
6, 7, and 8 involved
9. Dig another small vegetable bed:
Check! This is where we grew most of our tomatoes this year, which unfortunately succumbed to late blight. Next summer we're going to try squash and cucumbers and hope we have better luck. All in all, we were happy with the space we created.
And, 10 was to build a stone walkway to the front door, which will also be added to the 2013 list, and we'll see if we get to it.
It was a pretty good year, I'll say, and I'm looking forward to the challenges of the next one.
Wishing you all a safe and happy new year!
