This week is all about physical labour. Monday we pulled most of the 3 rooms that are receiving carpet apart. Installation is scheduled for Thursday and Friday. Today after the end of business we will pull apart the office. For now we are sleeping on a mattress on the floor as our bed takes too long to take apart to leave until the last minute. Our house looks like a gigantic storage facility - but if it wasn't open concept this would be a whole lot more difficult.

April was an expensive month - but things are happening around the little island pad. All of the veggies are in the ground for the year. 3 different kinds of tomatoes, a dill plant, some cilantro, a sugar snap pea bed, and a couple of pots of cucumbers. The strawberries have been transplanted into pots off the ground to try and help with loss to rodents. All the cost for the strawberries was last year so this year any that are harvested are free! There are lots of flowers on them already, I think I will get a much larger strawberry crop this year. I had all the pots already, ended up buying 3 trellis pieces for the peas at the dollar store - but everything else including bamboo sticks and cages were reused from previous years.

It seems I have gotten rid of my sinus issue - I actually think I may have developed some minor allergies at this point in life as now am taking allergy meds every day and most issues have sorted themselves, I feel much better. It is beautiful when every tree/bush is in full bloom or growing new leaves but it sure does affect those with allergies.

Another lovely weather week here on Vancouver Island. Buddy is such a sun seeker, he really enjoys lying in the sunshine. It got up to 17 degrees Celcius and he asked to go out far more than usual. We are supposed to get two more days and then a full week of rain. I don't mind though as it has been tough to work when it is so beautiful outside and Buddy sits there grunting at me all day to let him out. We also need the rain, although we got a lot of snow in February, our most in 40 years we have had very little rain this winter. I do not want to see a repeat of other summers with many fires and drought.
