Saturday, May, already.

School ends in just about 2 more school weeks. Summer is here (we're now over 100 every day.) Going to be too hot to run daily soon enough. Dogs are swimming every day again.

We had our nice two weeks off from hockey, but have tryouts starting the 15th. Midgets. I don't know when Kyle grew up and became a midget. That's the final step in youth hockey. Become a midget and when you're done with that, you're done.

Thanks to the hockey playoffs, my knitting has become prolific! I am working on slippers for Ron (new target completion date - Father's Day,) my wrap cardigan in orange cotton, and a Mustang team color scarf in the hopes that Kyle will make the team next season.

Ron spent his entire vacation working on our front yard. It's quite beautiful. He built a courtyard off our patio, complete with a fire pit. It's a nice place to sit and enjoy the currently comfortable evenings in front of a fire. We planted two new trees - an ornamental plum and a little leaf ash. 5 new potato bushes with pretty purple flowers. He built an amazing walkway to my front door and lined it with blue salvia, which hopefully will tolerate the brutal summers (the garden lady said they would.) My early Mother's Day gift was a lovely fountain. Pictures coming.
