How Many "Projects" Do You Have Left In You?

My husband and I are in the get-up-and-build mode right now. We have just about finished our kitchen and are moving on to our Arizona room. We invited some friends in to see how we were doing and as they left I had the thought that on the day we die, there will be a project in the offing. Our children will be left holding the hammer!

Front Porch is completed and we enjoy it so much.
Exterior looks much the same as it did when we bought it.
Unfortunately, the Saguaro tipped over soon after we moved into it.
We moved three park models down about 7 years ago (I think). We now live on the corner across from the pickleball and tennis courts. The little doll house was built in the 1970s and naturally needed some work to restore it to it's former glory. But, like the good golfers that we are, we put it off for several years. There were other things we wanted to do. But now, we have noticed what a wreck it is needs to be done. I suppose that comes of sitting in the house when the weather is cool and it has been cool this winter.

I think that we are so lucky that we love to create and change things. At this time in our life it is a gift that we are grateful for each and every day. It is what keeps us healthy and reasonably young.

So how many projects or books or volunteer options do you have lined up?  Remember, they keep you alive and happy.

Have a wonderful day!



  1. I'm sure I will leave many an unfinished manuscript in my wake! Your projects are turning out great, Barbara.

    1. Kathleen, I think my children will find us one day dead with a hammer in our hands and a big hole in the wall. What a way to go! :)


Leave your thoughts...I am interested.
