The Big List 3.12.23

Welcome! My name is Kara. You can learn more about me and why I write this blog here.

Here is the week I hope to have:

  • 12th – Daylight Saving Time begins
  • 14th – 3.14 Pi Day
  • 17th – St. Patrick’s Day Check Costco for shepherds pie and look up the Ina Garten recipe for Irish soda bread

First things first …

  • What is essential? 
  • Do I need help?
  • Where can I compromise?

To Do / Enjoy / Remember:

  • This is a pay day week for us:
    • Budget x Paycheck
    • ATM, cash envelope stuffing
    • Add to Christmas 2023 savings
  • I’ve checked out Melissa Michael’s book A Lovely Life from the library four or five times and have decided this pay check I’m going to order my own copy (affiliate link)
  • Test smoke detectors, reset clocks when DST begins
  • Wipe out the cutlery drawer and declutter it while I’m at it
  • Launder pet bedding and their winter coats and sweaters
  • Schedule pets for vet appointments and shots
  • Clean out the refrigerator
  • Clean out the freezer
  • Clean out the pantry, shelf by shelf
  • Clean stovetop fan with hot water and Dawn dish soap
  • Shred any documents we no longer need
  • Change the letter board
  • Purchase allergy medicines and masks to prepare for Spring allergy season. Check supply of Covid home tests and their expiration dates.
  • Continue garden and patio clean up
  • Continue saving containers for seed starting
  • Catch up: anything from the last few weeks I need to finish up
  • Update the screensaver on the Roku I use family photos and switch them out weekly
  • During Frasier February, my annual rewatch, I wrote some lists about the show. I plan to publish those lists here beginning this week. In the meantime, I created a little landing page to organize them. I’ll link to it in the blog’s sidebar as well once I have the content up and running. Just one of those nerdy things bringing me joy! ☕️🎙️🐶

I plan to put up my feet and knit along to:

My current influences:

  • Martha Stewart’s monthly calendars from her magazine (no longer in print). 
  • Alison May’s Brocante Home website and online community as well as her seasonal home books.

Thank you for how kind you’ve been to this little blog of lists.

I am approaching blogging differently this time around. No pressure on me and no pressure on you. Just a basic but (I hope) truly helpful little website. Thanks for reading!

I hope you got what you needed this week, babies. And if not, I hope next week is better.
