It’s May! Sure, it’s still chilly and we’ve had lots (and lots) of rain but still . . . MAY. I’m ready to welcome this new month in 3 ways.
- The Spiritual Rebels class that I’m part of has a different topic for each month and for May the topic is Intuition and the Body. We’re going to be focusing on loving and trusting our bodies and busting the things we’ve been taught by the beauty, diet and medical industry. I’m really excited for this topic and I’m hoping it will help me to not only embrace how I look but also use the tools I have at my disposal to feel stronger and more confident.
- Gardening! All of the work we did last spring on our front bed (with thanks again to the fabulous Kym for the design help and advice) is paying off – everything is coming up and growing. That also includes plenty of weeds and moss (one side of this faces north) but it’s so nice to be building on what we did last year and not starting from scratch. One thing we are starting new is building another raised bed. This one is going to be for cut flowers only, no vegetables, and I’m so excited about it because I have wanted a cut flower garden for a long, long time. I took a class last month to get me started and I’ve got a whole tray of zinnias, cosmos, calendulas, and sunflowers that are going to be ready to be hardened off and then planted outside by the end of the month!
- Outdoor living! Last weekend we borrowed Sean’s power washer and Dale power washed the house as well as the deck. He’ll be putting down a fresh coat of stain this weekend (I hope) and then the furniture will be out and we’ll be spending as much time as possible outside. Plus we will have a full season with our pergola and I cannot wait to (finally) host a dinner party under the pergola lights. I love when our outdoor living areas are usable, it’s like doubling the size of our house.
What’s making you happen about the month of May?
