April 2014 Compendium

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

Fun Stuff

➛ 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

The Everyday

➛ 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.
