June To Do List and May Recap

Picture 35

In May, I got to everything on my list – but only because I purposely put just 3 things on it(!)  Hey, I’m no dummy. There’s nothing like a short list to make you feel like you accomplished something. 🙂


1. Finish fixing up the guest room. 

2. Rearrange outdoor space.

3. Take donations to the Salvation Army.

I’ve got pretty modest plans for June as well.


1. Plan potagère.

2. Weed!

3. Toss magazines older than 1 month; read them first(!)

4. Unpack everything. (I have a bad habit of leaving souvenirs and random items in bags for weeks after a trip.)

5. Find an outdoor rug.

6. Have windows cleaned. 

7. Cull dog toys.

    Everytime I come home from overseas, I have the hardest time changing my watch back to the regular time, it’s like I can’t let go of the trip or something! If your only bad habit is leaving some souvenirs in a bag, that is pretty good! I think I need to start monthly to do’s to get me on track these days!

    Brilliant…short to do list= big sense of accomplishment! I need to heed that advice. I literally have lists that refer me back to my other lists and so on and so forth! Ugh!

  3. I love to do lists! I always feel better crossing things out. I need to make mine for June..

    Lists keep me sane.

  5. YES! I think you are on the right track. It needs more texture!

    I would not survive without my “to do” list. I love being able to cross things off, its the best feeling

    I just put together my June list on my blog.

    What’s potagère by the way?

    • I’m going to pop over and have a look now! I love seeing other people’s lists. Oh, and a potagère is just a vegetable garden. It’s just more fun to say than “vegetable garden!”

  8. so pretty. all 3. i like it now but think if a change is what you are thinking then you most likely won’t be satisfied until you make some kind of change, no?

  9. ok, just realized that i commented on the wrong post. this was meant for the dining room post.

    I wish I had your dedication, I have so many magazines sitting on my shelf that I need to read and never do!

    Btw…I love the stone wall photos. Just gorgeous, you’re quite lucky 🙂

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
