Watched, Read, and Listened
➛ Books: Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. – still making progress here. In case you were wondering, I did challenge myself to step outside my comfort zone in reading this year. I have mostly read fiction, and I thought it would be good to stretch (discover) some other genres.
The Creative Habit – Reading this one for the Lemon and Rasberries Book Club. It’s my second time through. I love this book.
➛ Television: Walking Dead, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bones, Elementary, Hawaii 5-0, Survivor, Person of Interest
➛ Movies: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Pawn, Ender’s Game
➛ Sort of finished the new fence. Still need to do a few sections that were waiting on the building and also install the gate.
➛ Put in a workshop (AKA Party Boy’s Happy Place)
➛ Went to lots of soccer practices and games. Chaos was selected to continue on a select team for this summer!
➛ Celebrated a friends birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. He’s 5, people! Hollywood still doesn’t like Chuck E. Oh well.
➛ Reworked the front flower bed walkway and added stone to help with drainage and weed control.
➛ Replanted new tomato plants after the first set were killed by hail and frost.
➛ Put in three new pear trees. We have been looking for a specific variety all winter and just happened across them this month.
➛ Took Party Boy to a golf lesson.
➛ Sent the girls on a church retreat.
➛ Successfully spliced a garden hose. All by myself!
Milestones, Holidays, and Special Events
➛ Found the first baby tomatoes of the season!
➛ Learned about Passover with a Seder meal
➛ Remembered Holy Week
➛ Celebrated Easter
➛ Right at the beginning of the month we had a massive hail storm! It was awful – destroyed my garden and banged up the truck really bad.
➛ The workshop is 90% done. Yay!
➛ Took the truck out to be appraised for repairs to the hail damage. So glad they opted to repair and not total it.
➛ Started a garden journal. You can read it here.
