    The Fall to do list is:

    Start the 2021 batch of vanilla extract
    Pull out duvet and extra blankets
    Pull out winter clothing
    Clear out 3 boxes from the storage unit
    Organize the fabric scrap bags (literally 2 Trader Joe's bags full of fabric scraps)
    Distribute knitted hats, scarves, mittens, and socks to people who need them
    Minimize snark at the Apartment building's annual meeting
    Continue the book cull
    Find the ice scraper

    Probably other stuff I'm forgetting

    The 2021 batch of vanilla extract is doing it's thing, I'm using the costco gluten free vodka I picked up for $12/bottle during vacation.

    Still deciding how I want to organize scraps.

    The benches and their companion tables are stained! DH and I worked on this together with our new paint sprayer, which cuts the actual painting time down incredibly. So glad to be able to check this one off the list!

    Nice, hana. I've never made my own vanilla, but have received some as a gift - wonderful stuff!

    Congrats, rosa! I believe you had posted about procrastinating about that job. Glad you got it finished.

    Touched up the paint in the hardware for the cabinets.

    Attended another Board of Health meeting.

    This weekend I expect to finish cutting down plants for winter.

    Here is my progress on my list:

    Make last trip to parents' house and go through the whole house with knowledge this is my last chance.
    Done

    Go visit my grandson.
    Done

    Finish sanding and repainting side of the house.
    Husband paid someone who did it, looks great

    Make a workable budget for two scenarios--this house and new house.
    not started

    Complete accounting to house repairs etc on this house as will need to pay taxes on any profit if we sell it.
    not started

    There was more on there--am teaching four classes, so I guess I'm doing that one. It's too early to think much about Christmas and I won't do that until December, which is winter in my book.
