Spring to-do List, Part 1

  • cull old shoes that don't even fit any kids here from overflowing entry closet
  • nature walk with kids
  • knit something
  • remove turtlenecks and various warm long sleeve shirts from too-small closets of often overheating children who will not need such clothing for at least 3 or 4 months
  • set up pool for kids
  • knit something
  • remove too-small clothes from speed-growing teenage son's overstuffed dresser drawers so he can actually put away the clothes that do fit this week
  • take kids hiking
  • knit something
  • clear years' worth of collected junk/stuff from junk/stuff room downstairs, throw most of it away, store leftovers in attic to be thrown away 10 years from now- that room is needed for children to make way for a new addition this fall...
  • explore a new park with kids
  • knit something else
  • plan garden, buy seeds, locate tools like rakes and hoes
  • drawing/sketching outside with kids


  • knit something
  • dream about getting chickens
  • read a classic book out on a blanket in the sun with kids
  • knit something more
  • go through pantry, eat or throw food nearing or past expiration date, restock pantry
  • bird watching with kids
  • knit something
  • clean some windows
  • try a new cookie recipe
  • knit something new

  • plan summer field trips
  • have fun with kids
  • knit some more...

If you notice a week pass with no blog activity, assume that I'm working on my list!

Happy knitting-

ali

That sounds like a perfectly lovely list. Great pictures too, although.... the finger painting one scares me just a little bit...

That could be my list. My oldest only has 2 pair of shorts that fit...all the rest need to be boxed up for the younger brother. Just keeping the right size clothes in the drawers could be a full time job here with their growing. =0)

And I'd like to get some knitting done.

Hmmm the list seems so familiar. Have a great time outside now that Mother Nature has finally decided that we can have spring.
