May has been a very productive month. We did a lot of work in the yard and on the house. Using the pole saw and chainsaw, we were able to cut a lot of limbs that were in the way. Then we used the pressure washer and washed the back of the house and deck. We were exercising on a regular basis also.

2. Finish my national park blanket. - complete!
