May Wrap-Up

Suddenly May is coming to a close.  It was a great month!  We ramped up our weekend game this month with lots of events.vw busHere is May’s list:

  • Have a Star Wars marathon.  We watched the original three, it had been so long since I’ve seen them!
  • Bus stuff (always). We didn’t work on the bus too much this month, although Kyle knocked a couple things off the list.
  • Camping / Savannah trip this month!  Well, we never made it to Savannah…
  • We’ve volunteered at a brew festival at the end of the month.  After work today, we’ll be on our way!
  • I’ve got to finish up the elderberry wine (again) and get a new batch of wine started.  Gah.  A new batch has been started, but the elderberry still needs to be bottled.
  • Plant more things in the garden / keep up with the garden.  I don’t think I planted anything else, but we’ve been eating greens, radishes and peas and watching the tomatoes get bigger and bigger.
  • Make some fun anniversary plans.  I wasn’t sure if we’d get a spot on the ferry out to Boneyard Beach, but we made it and it was a phenomenal trip – read about it here!

June is looking like a quieter month, but it’s still early.

  • There’s a concert in mid-June at the VW dealership – just a quick jaunt in the bus.
  • Piccolo Spoleto festival is going on, and I’d love to attend a couple events for that.
  • Ongoing bus work, of course.  Hopefully we can make some good progress in June.
  • As the summer months progress, it’s going to get too hot for most garden plants, so I’m going to start working on a plan for the second season – the one that starts when it cools off a bit.
  • Play around with my camera more – spend one night at the beach taking photos.  I keep trying to learn more about photography, but when it’s so sunny that I can’t see my camera screen I can’t tell how the photos are turning out so I don’t really learn anything. 
  • I’ve been thinking about starting a webcomic, so I want to draw at least ten comic panels in June for practice.

That’s about all I can think of right now.   Okay, on to photos from my month.  We spent the first weekend camping close to home.
