Visions of May

As days are getting longer, so have my lists of things to do. We have started this season with the attitude of "Get rid of it, Fix it, Use it" for everything in our house. It is going to be a long process, but it has begun with 10 garbage bags of clothes and linens being dropped of to Volunteers of America. They are close, convenient and my favorite local thrift store. (Hubby told us we can't buy back our things if we see them there...LOL) We have cleaned out about half of the garage and Hubby even suggested painting it one color instead of the 4 random colors it is now. I think he may be getting into the groove of this project! My garden is going by the wayside this year for a few reasons, give the soil a break and let it rejuvenate itself, my time is being utilized in other places around our home, and the major one is a badminton net was found in a closet corner and magically appeared in the middle of the garden outline while I was at the grocery one Saturday morning. One other part of my summer will be having an informal Bible and book study from here with the young women that like to come over and hang out with my daughter. 
So, with no further ado, here are some visions of my last month or so...  

Spray painting is good for the soul...

Volunteer lettuce, randomly poking it's head out...  

 More spray painting, I really love spray paint!

 Moved the blueberries and made them a nice new bed...

 Homemade weedkiller working after just 3 hours!

 Our first outside dinner of the season...

 Grilled pineapple on charcoal is the best!

 Smooth homemade pasta sauce courtesy of my new blender... 

 2 lap blankets finished...


 A backyard waiting for fun!

Blessings and Happy June!
