May 2018 – Passive Income Update
May 2018 – Passive Income Update
Hey! It’s that time of the month again. Time to tally all the totals and see how we are progressing.
May isn’t exactly over but I have received all our dividend payments and other sources of passive income for the month. This month has just flew by. Work is just insane. I have been working 60 plus hours a week 6 days a week (Saturday is normally a half day) This is a big reason for my lack of posts currently.
I just finished getting our vegetable garden all setup with the drip line system. Feels good to get that done as the side of our house was a huge mess, this cleans it up more and got to love fresh vegetables! I planted a bunch of Tomato’s and cherry Tomato’s, green peppers, red peppers, some herbs, cucumber’s, bean’s and for the first time we are going to try watermelon’s. I’m looking forward to seeing how those turn out.
The weather has been very nice, and we really hit it off this year with a bunch of the neighbour’s. Its great to have a group of friends so close. Beer’s are always flowing, pool parties and fire’s tend to be constant. The kid’s all get along which is a massive bonus.
Summer is all about camping, we love to go for the weekends. We haven’t went yet but got 2 trips booked and debating setting up another. Anyways let’s see how the progress is going….

This was the first month Emera and Proctor & Gamble paid me. Very nice! 4 More dividend increases! Man do I ever love dividend investing….. Solar was a little lower than last month because of the ice storm but overall another great month. I’m really looking forward to seeing what June will bring in total.
