Yep, here it is – last post of may.. Granted, I always say that, but I STILL cannot wrap my head around another month being over.. 😳 daamn, where is 2018 going ?? seems like everything pass us by so quickly ..
Before hopping over to my habit tracker for this month, I have done some modifications in my early pages that I would like to show you !
I’m not sure if you recall, but only the bottom shelf was here originally; having a
useless wishlist over it.
Doing so good in my Goodreads challenge of 12 books (now 8/12 !!) I figured I would need another one if I were to keep reading two or even three books a month!
Also touched my 2018’s goal page; I now have only two left to check ! The 12 books read, and to get my driver’s liscence.. *aherm* which I shall get to as soon I get the money, now that winter is (hopefully) over.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s see my Habit tracker!
Granted it still has place for amelioration; I actually did way better than last month’s! Apart of that one time I never returned my comments (please, forgive me !!) I ended up returning thoses in a more timely manner and bloghopped more often aswell !! Last month’s was more dragging,.. And the “X”s are less than last month’s too !
I definately improved walking the weeins, and ended up brushing their teeth/creamed their paw pads about every two days. Of course it’s not the *best* yet, but it’s better than just sporadically !
May’s events ;
~ Following last month’s incident with Kafei, I returned to the vet on the 1st; and i’m glad to say she said everything had healed as it should had and nothing (like absess and stuff) was under his skin, so that’s good! While I was there, I opted to vaccine him a little earlier, rather than having to go back in a month; as it would had ended up costing more if I were to come back.. so now he’s good and only missing his Lyme vaccine, as they were out of stock- which shall arrive sometime this month.
As per what did it … We’re thinking an eagle as we saw one roaming around our house; but however, I cannot explain why he only had a wound on one side of his body only AND only one .. you’d think an eagle’s foot would had left atleast 3holes, no ?
~ I did a guest post on “The ELL Experience”, being the ELL of the month; Which related to my very own experience as an english second language learner. If you had missed it, the post is right here.
~ One of my wish came true ! For 19 years of my life, dad had wore this special gold watch with an apple inside the cadran; and he decided to give it to me ! Which was a huge thing for me in itself, as he’s away quite often for his work; so it was like a part of him was with me.
But what makes it more special, is the story behind it; His name and the year 2000 is engraved on the back.
There were a contest, in which the produce department’s chiefs were to win a watch IF they made a nice display and double the last year’s selling number. The trick; there was only one of thoses watches to be won in my area, the maritimes (which is 4 provinces, btw). Dad WANTED this watch, so he did everything in his will to get it; and he did !! He said we wore this watch for 19years, and upon looking at it, was reminded how you can achieve anything you want – If you have enough will powers. Him passing it to me was his way to tell me the same; If you work hard to follow what you wanna get, anything is possible. He also added how he was proud of the woman i’ve become, which I was honestly sobbing at this point, as my dad isn’t the kind to say things like this aloud; but is good at writting it.
~ I finished reading three books this month !! How cool is that ?! 😄
~ On the 23rd, my Sheik turned 3years old !! Just like her brother’s however, I was working that day aswell; so we didn’t took any chances and did a photoshoot and got her her “cake” two days early. Here’s one of them;
~ Would you believe it, we had frost warnings ; a couple of times this month. Even on day where it was 20°C in daytime … and my native town actually got SNOW on Sheik’s birthday ;-; up to 3cms Ithink ..
Love giving of the month;

Onto planning June ! ;
As I have like four of sparkly pens, I decided I was to do all my pages one color, and then switch to a different color each month. Also, on my weekly pages, I was tired of highlighting my lines so eh xD imma let that go.
Spaced out my calender properly this month, ahah! Also decided to add a little doodle and a quote, because why not.
Habit tracker looking the same .. but same color as my calender and planned for all my square to fit, this time ahah. I’m bad at mesuring, apparently.. xD
Once again.. I didn’t calculated something properly *aherm* .. So I had an extra page and needed to add something else. Since I went to a NetGalley requesting spree, and was receiving quite alot of review request, I decided to have a dead line’s page !! So I can make sure I cover everything in a timely manner and not forget anything, like we know I can do often xD
Lastly, My blog planning ! As always, I’ve planned some squares for all Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays of the month; also each two saturdays for the lasts int. blogger meme for me to fill in what I wanna schedule for which date. I also provided an area for what’s in my drafts and what/when are my additionnal posts as per usual, but I ALSO added what post idea I got that month, so I can go back and look what ideas I got when, and also as my page at the beggining is pretty crowded now 😂 Additionnally; As the page for what I got tagged in/which of my posts got showcased where was a success in may, I also put it back in !
I’m not gonna show you what my weekly spread looks like, as it’s mainly the same; square bronze colored blocks with how much work hours I had per week, with the only exception that the squares no longer have blue highlighter around it.
What do you think of my modifications ? What are your “must” have pages that you do every month?
