- Survive. Actually, thrive. I know I’ll survive. I did - both. I had a great time this month, and I don't feel like I was ever overly stressed. Which leads right into the next goal:
- Be realistic about stress.
- Spend a night in the garden. Maybe plant some things. Enjoy the sunshine and the dirt. I did all these things too. Actually, I spent two nights in the garden, and got the whole thing planted up with Amish tomatoes and peppers
- I’ve got a budget that I haven’t been doing too well at. Goal for May: stay within ten percent of my budget. Better yet: under budget. I still need to do some accounting before I make the final call on this one, but so far things are looking pretty good.
- Blog once a week. Despite being sans-internet at home, this one is accomplished. My life is ridiculously different now. I no longer waste time online. Sure, there the occasional facebook bout, but I never manage to spend more than ten minutes on facebook anymore. It's weird. More or less, I check facebook and a few news stories at lunch, and that's practically the extent of my time online at home.
So, May was like the busiest month of my life. I feel like I'm still recovering. And, let's face it, summer isn't a time for working goals, it's a time for hanging out with friends and getting the boat out. So let's make the June goals something appealing.
- Get the boat out. Not just mine. I'm lookin' at you, Baneys and Boonzaaijers.
- Eat something from the garden. Yeah, it will probably just be some spinach or arugula, but it's a start.
- Farmers market? Does the farmers market start this month?! Farmers market! It's coming back, I'm excited, and I will be in attendance at some point this month.
- Read a book. Read TWO books.
- Go camping. I actually squeezed some camping into May. I should write a post about May.
- Find a campfire and go enjoy it. This campfire must be unrelated from the camping trip.
- Start some rhubarb wine. That's right, people, it's wine season again.
