May 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. I made some really good progress this month during my creative diet.

The Creative Habit – Reading this one for the Lemon and Raspberry Book Club. It’s my second time through. I love this book.

➛ Television: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bones, Elementary, Hawaii 5-0, Survivor, Person of Interest, Blue Bloods, Scandal (started this one on Netflix and am hooked!), Breaking Bad (all of it – binge watching), Warehouse 13

➛ Movies: X-Men: Days of Future Past (so good), Maleficient (so good), Saving Mr. Banks (so good), Getaway (meh)

Fun Stuff

➛ Installed the gate and have the fence 95% complete. Just lack the one section connecting the workshop to the house.

➛ Started harvesting from the garden. So far we have gotten LOTS of onions – Put 10-1/2 cups of diced onions in the freezer and have 18 more to dice waiting in the fridge. Also put 3 quarts of squash in the freezer – and that’s just what we haven’t eaten!

➛ Chaos started his select team soccer practice.

➛ Bought a blow-up pool for the back yard. The real thing has to wait a while longer…

➛ Hosted a Mother’s Day lunch for all the family

➛ Put in sod and a flower bed in front of the workshop

➛ Replaced a photinia and 2 lantana that didn’t survive the winter

➛ Put in a garden fence/trellis for the tomatoes. All by myself!

➛ Prepped and edged the gravel driveway to the workshop.

➛ Enjoyed really wonderful weather!

Milestones, Holidays, and Special Events

➛ Finished the school year – the girls each have at least one subject that they’ll work on over the summer.

➛ Celebrated Hollywood’s birthday!

➛ Celebrated Mother’s Day!

➛ Watched a wonderful presentation by Critterman – Chaos was in heaven!

The Everyday

➛ Weeding the garden daily and harvesting too!

➛ Finally go the girls into swim practices that are at the same time – and earlier in the day!

➛ Got the truck looked at by a body shop (for hail damage) and got an appointment to get that work done.

➛ Started trying to make 10,000 steps per day. Debating a fitbit. Using a Nutribullet.
