June: A Month in Review
By the way this is the look you get when you ask your daughter to look far away and visionary...
Right when it came to actual goals last month, I celebrated my anniversary and that was well...it for the goals I had in mind. But, at least I got other things done.
This is NOT going as fast as I would like as my son has been high needs the last bit, but overall I am happy that I was at least able to start it and am making progress. Slow progress, but progress none the less! I also learned to appreciate electric lights a lot more as trying to work on embroidery in really dim light at midnight (we have a lot of sunlight this time of year)...it gets to your eyes!
Overall, I am happy with it as it gives me easy access with good visibility to the food storage I currently have. As soon as my husband fixes the shelves in the cabinet I'll be able to stack my fabric back in the cabinet on the middle and top shelves of the cabinet, but for now it's in stacks in the den (so, once again, the den is a mess).
3. I tended the garden. I planted more seeds when I realized that the corn wasn't going to go far this year. I planted pole beans and more peas, watched the garden grow before my eyes and am hoping to start harvesting things big time this month, including hopefully peas!
I got the flowers planted in the front bed finally, wrote off the mint plant for dead, gloried in the wonder that was the chives growing and am looking forward to harvesting those tomorrow and dehydrating them with the basil and dill I managed to harvest from the hydroponics garden this week.
4. I worked hard to make dinners not boring around here and made a real effort to make different things for dessert or snacks. I think I'm having DECENT success with that, anyway, especially considering the tightness of our income.
5. Speaking of money, I started to dial in how to live within our new means that came with the new job. It's been challenging, but we're making it! And my husband is really happy in his new job, which is worth it's weight in gold!
6. We started summer school, I finally got an appointment with a speech therapist (thank the Good Lord!), we went to the psychologist to try and work on autistic behaviors to try and make my son's life more bearable for him, and us. Progress is SLOW, but we'll get there. I have faith.
So, yeah, as month's went, I would say that June was busy, but at least I got things done during it! How about you? Get anything done worth noting in June?
