Eighteen weeks into 2014? Where did those months go? Holy crap. April felt like a total wash. March was consumed with my trip to Florida. February? Who even remembers back that far anymore? I think I was writing in January...
So here we are in the month of May. I still have to wrap up April, though, and get this party month* started.
The big news is that I'm writing again. I promised myself I would take May and do some kind of warped NaNo type thing. 44K words in 31 days. (44 because I'll turn 44 this month.) So far, I've written every day of May. It's early yet, but I can do this. And maybe it'll be the kick in the pants I've needed.
In home improvement stuff, the Hubs is almost done with the insulation project. That huge pile of stuff in the garage that Max was using as the world's biggest kitty-bed is down to 4 rolls of R30 unfaced, 4 bats of R30 faced 16", and 1 bat of R30 faced 24". It's nice not having to wear socks - the floors were really cold, but now they're not.
I'm working on the pea gravel project. We got 6-7 yards of pea rock piled in the driveway with the plan to put it underneath the deck and the sun room and in a perimeter around the house. Before we can put it anywhere, thought, we have to prep the space, and with Hubs wrapped up in insulation, I'm shouldering the workload on the prep. I also took this pile of flat pseudo rocks (concrete shaped into rock forms) that I found in the woods, and made a neat patterned border along the edge of the underside of the deck. I ran out of those a lot quicker than I thought, so I'm using just flat-ish rocks I have laying around. It looks quite nice, if you ask me.
What were you up to last week? Anything fun on the agenda for May?
