rebuild front porch
remove bees from front porch column
new roof on both porches
repair main roof
repair/replace gutters
paint house
weatherize addition and basement
cut enough firewood to last through next winter
line chimney
fix enough fence for us to get a bred milk cow next spring
clean out haunted chicken house and make sure it's in good enough shape to use as shelter for the cow when necessary
rock driveway (and the casbah)
clean up trash and get a big brush burn done - (last on list since ground can be frozen when we do this)

Get Bees

change the opening for the old basement garage into wall with exterior bulkhead door and storm shelter
prepare fence and housing for bred sow to be purchased spring of 2011

finish junk cleanup


  1. I knew that one was from Chad before I ever got to the bottom as the mention of heat and electricity for chickens would not have been mentioned:)

  2. You make me dizzy thinking about your list, and that makes me think about mine, and now my head REALLY hurts.

    No really, that is an awesome, ambitious list. But, you can do it!
