Vent the tenant's dryer out the back basement window, instead of sharing a dryer vent - Need to get Rick to do this soon.
Bring all electricity up to modern standards - Some of this has been done, but the basement is still knob and post wiring.
Various cement work: tuckpointing the back porch, fixing the back walk, and repairing the chimney cap - This is expensive stuff, left for next year.
Plant at least a couple of tomato plants this year.
Maybe a tub of mint, too.
And some parsley, and radishes, and bell pepper, and zucchini, and basil, and lettuce?
Put a nice fragrant dwarf lilac or two in the space on the east side of the front steps - Next spring.

We also replaced the gutters and downspouts, replaced the back porch roof, rekeyed the house, replaced the blinds in the library, cleaned out most of the junk from the garage, and got Jo & Adam's old vacuum cleaner too. Yay!
