Memories of the Month - Here's a great idea for wrapping up the month with a set of questions to remember how your last month with.  I love going back and reading through what happened throughout the years.

This month I was happy about: to be done with Kayleigh getting spayed. Now that her stitches out she is so happy to be able to run and play outside.

This month I was sad about: all the sadness and violence in our country right now.

This year I’m going to rate the books & movies. Here’s my rating system:

My favorite song this month was: Peace Be Still by Hope Darst

What I remember about work was: continuing to work from home even after the 2nd date of “reconsideration.” I’m still going in every 7th business day. We did get 8 students to start coming in on May 18th. We allowed swipe access for faculty and grad students as of that date.

A lesson I learned this month was: having nice outdoor furniture can really be more inviting

A friend and I: saw each other when we helped her move a hot tub!

My favorite pic that I took was:
5.3.2020_Cherokee_Ridge_South_Loop.09
This is not a great pic compositionally, but I love that this pic is taken just a short drive from my house. We are so lucky to have such beautiful places to hike and explore.

The favorite thing I cooked was: porkloins and pork chops in the Instant Pot are amazing! I plan to share recipes soon.

Drew: started working for the library systems department, but this time it’s virtually. He’s been asking since he got done with school to cook dinner. A couple weeks ago he just cooked kabobs on the grill and it was so good!

Alex was: finished his 10th grade year at home because of COVID 19.

Rob was: trying to make some changes to our wifi to help it be faster.

The thing I’ll remember most from this month was: getting my first harvest of lettuce and herbs and seeing my first tomatoes fruit. They’re still small, but they’re sprouting and growing.
