Replaced 2 outlets in the house with USB wall chargers. These babies charge your phone, tablet, headset, etc. with a USB cable. No adapter is required. Also, each USB outlet pushes 2 amps, which is 2-4x more juice than most plug-ins.

Hooked up 2 Sonos Play 1 speakers for my sweetie. These speakers stream Pandora, XM, or your favorite internet radio directly from the internet via a Sonos Bridge. Your smartphone or PC acts as a remote. It's hard to believe that so much sound comes out of something so small.
Repaired the stairs and rails on the deck. It needs to be totally replaced, but we're lacking the funds this year to wave a magic wand and pay someone. I'd rather just buy a gallon of kerosene and strike a match, but my friends say that might be dangerous. My fall project will be installing a new floor, staining the wood, and firming up the rail supports with carriage bolts.
The current project is replacing the face plate on our high class Bosch dishwasher. Hey, you need at least one high class thing in a Ball home to spruce it up. This expensive piece of plastic ($75 with shipping) is weak and poorly designed. Maybe the new one will last a little longer. At that price, building a Bosch dishwasher from parts would be an estimated $100,000.

Thanks everyone for reading, and good luck with your own DIY projects. The sun is setting, my bourbon glass is empty, and I bet you can hear ice rattling.
