I so love your monthly lists. And we have a very similar month planned - all the bright outdoor bustle of May. Except for fencing ... how exciting!

I love your lists...I have often thought of making a monthly list on my blog inspired by you...Maybe I will actually do it one day...Maybe a public list will motivate me to be more organized than my private lists have been doing :-)
