May, here and gone

It’s been exactly a month since I last posted.  I got sick a month ago and I thought I just needed a few days to recuperate.  Then it was a week.  Then it was two weeks.  And here we are at the end of May.  And I think I’m sick again.  =(  Maybe it’s just a 24 hour bug.  Fingers crossed.

This past month has been really quiet around here… since I was recuperating and all.  I did manage to convince KT to install a much-needed new toilet.  SO happy about that.  The old one came with the house and it rocked.  Yea, back and forth.  And it was constantly running.

We (Really, it was just KT) tore down the old shed in the backyard and battled an infestation of spiders! EEEKK!  He’s prepping the area to build us a new shed.  I’ll post some progress pictures when I get it off the camera.

We added two fruit trees to our container garden.  My mom got the trees from my aunt who, from what it sounds like, has a hobby of rooting branches from her existing trees to make new trees.  So now we have a pear tree and a guava tree.  I’ll try to do an update on our garden later this week.  It’s really flourishing.

This past weekend was the most productive weekend for me this month.  I was feeling like I was finally getting my energy back (then I woke up this morning with a sore throat, a cough, and a runny nose), and the rain in the forecast never came.  I was ready to finally take off the patio covers and bring some life back to our outdoor living space.  I figured out the next step for the hole in the bathroom wall.  I resumed spring cleaning.  I even gave Monster and Sugar a bath. And they were so well-behaved it made me proud.

Hopefully June will be a fun, creative, productive, healthy month.
