Not sure what kind of interest will be earned or dividends paid, but since this Covid-19 non-sense started I've,

painted, rewired and installed all new lighting, sockets and switches in the kitchen
replaced any compromised wood, power-washed and stained the deck, rebuilt the patio fence and gate
power-washed the front and rear walkways and the rear patio
built and planted a 16' x 10' raised garden complete with two trellises and a rotating composter
planted 3 oak trees, a tulip tree, a maple tree and a redbud tree
designed a planted a hummingbird garden (day one a hummingbird showed up)
emptied the entire garage, sealed walls, installed epoxy floor and organized
installed a 25' x 10' concrete patio for my neighbor

the hallway bathroom is next and guess what is LAST.....converting the basement to a mini-man-cave (only been in this house for 15 years).

Hope there's some grace and latitude come fall.

I'm sure I'm not the only one getting stuff done around the house....what else is going on?

Beware! Brownie points have a shelf life. Mine are good for about 24 hours.

Looks about like my completed list. Of course when I "turn the lights down low" I get an instant "I'm tired and have a headache"......:bs:

Here’s the garage before (yes it’s embarrassing)








And after (there really was a floor in there)

I’m essential so no time for brownie points. Plus my wife says I shouldn’t expect a reward for taking care of things that need to be done

Hear ya. Mine gives praise to the neighbor for anything he does while harping on me for things not done yet no matter how much I've done. One thing she knows she has no control over is my hunting.

I'm with 25 here, when it comes to hunting she knows not to push that button. I nipped that in the bud on our first date and she has held up her end of the bargain for 25 yrs now.

For sure. Getting tons done around here.
PS your "so called garage" isn't really a garage but more of a storage shed LOL.
Yeah I know...we've actually had it priced out 2x in the 15-years we've been here to make it a true garage. Not sure why the original owners designed it they way they did, we just can't swing it.

Here's the garage at camp....my brothers call it the barn (lol)....just before it was finished earlier this spring.
