 I'm facing a painting and cleaning project in the basement, and the need to mow the lawn. I got the overgrown part of the lawn in the very back done by raising the mower to it's highest level, but there is more to finish probably tomorrow. Later tonight I'll see about cleaning up a bit, and painting the first layer on at least some of the walls in the basement. The ceiling appears good enough to not need a second coat but I reserve the right to do touchup if I spot something while working down there. 

I figure there are four walls in the tv room, two additional walls in the kids play niche (one wall goes int the rest of the tv room), and several surfaces in the landing at the bottom of the stairs plus the stairwell itself. The tv room is first, then the landing, then the stairwell. I'll paint the part of the tv room that gets tiled on the floor first, and work my way back. The wall overlapping the kids play niche may have to wait until I can clear out more stuff so it gets done all at once, right now the niche is still packed with 2 futons and a load of crap.

Part of my garden is overgrown with grass, and in bad need of a weedeater. I'll worry about that when I actually mow. The heat (even though it's better now) makes me really not want to mow, and today's mowing was accompanied by much yelling at the kids who were either trying to leave the backyard for various reasons, or throwing stuff into the neighbors yard. I think tomorrow is soon enough to finish the mowing.
I'm so looking forward to the basement being done, its much cooler down there than up here.

It's cooler here today, so I'm taking a page from your book and cleaning, too.
Pure inspiration.
