Tackle a front porch
Aren’t front porches wonderful? We live in an 1800’s house and one of my favorite places is the front porch. It isn’t my favorite when it is a mess though. So today we are tackling that problem. Here is a picture of our front porch, it can be really lovely.
The first step is to remove everything from the porch. In the South it isn’t a porch if it doesn’t have porch rockers.
Then you get the pressure washer and go to town! Be sure to wash everything washable, including the siding on the front of the house. Then clean the windows, the porch light, and sweep all the water off.
Then find yourself some pretty wildflowers and put them in a vase.
Next have yourself a seat, a cup of ice tea, and enjoy the view!

The project can be little or big – whatever you want.
Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done.
