The Big List 3.19.23

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:

  • 20th – Spring Equinox 5:25pm EDT
  • 20th – Fred Rogers birthday (1928)
  • 23rd – Meet the Robinsons (2007)
  • 25th – The Raconteurs Consolers of the Lonely (2008)

First things first …

  • What is essential?
  • Do I need help?
  • Where can I compromise? Sometimes what is necessary are lower standards in order to have less stress.

To Do / Enjoy / Remember: The Big List

  • Switch front door wreath bow to yellow plaid
  • Car cleaned
  • Make appointment to get car serviced
  • Visit a local museum We are hoping to take the kids to the new Minecraft exhibit at the children’s museum.
  • Give yourself an internet detox day
  • Take down windows coverings, storm windows
  • Sometimes when we take the window stuff down we need to do some paint touch ups
  • Restock cleaning supplies
  • Replace dish sponge (every 2 weeks)
  • Plan something silly for April Fools
  • Do our door mats need replacing?
    • Replace with coco mats?
  • Update screensaver on the Roku
  • Write down April sports and club schedules
  • 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

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.
  • I checked out Melissa Michael’s book A Lovely Life from the library so many times! I finally bought my own copy (affiliate link)
  • During Frasier February, my annual rewatch, I wrote some lists about the show. I plan to publish those lists soon. In the meantime, I am creating a little landing page to organize them. I’ll link to it in the blog’s sidebar once I have the content up and running. Just one of those nerdy things bringing me joy! ☕️🎙️🐶

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.
