February came and went. Overall, it was a decent month. Since some of our activities have been reduced and the calendar is in a more manageable state. I’ve been able to cook more, read more, and just relax at home. Something I’ve really missed for the past few years.
I use my YouVersion Bible app a lot. This morning I am going to break out my actual Bible and maybe do a little journaling. I don’t like my penmanship. Which is why I never journal. I actually write neatly but in all block letters and it’s tiresome for my hand. LOL. I love the look of a well-used Bible though, one full of notes and the like so I am going to try to pick this up again.
I have one little scheduling conflict for Monday which I will have to figure out. Outreach conflicts with my daughter’s Sign Language class and her teacher keeps ending the class early which means I have to leave in the middle of Outreach. Thinking that maybe I should take a break from Outreach until this class is over in May.
I have to get this kid in the car for driving practice. She’s not a big fan of it. But we want her to be licensed by June. So my goal this week is more practice. She’s actually pretty good when I can get her to practice.
I finished The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley. It wasn’t what I thought it would be. I expected more of a suspense, thriller type story. It wasn’t that at all but I still enjoyed it. My review should post this week.
What do I read next? I feel like my pace slowed a bit since this last book wasn’t as much of a page turner as I expected it to be.
The Crown continues to be great. We finished Season 1. On to Season 2.
The Walking Dead opened with the dumbest episode ever and included a seriously cringy scene between Alpha and Negan. Ew. I can’t unsee that.
New Things I’ve Tried:
When I went to Lush the other day they gave me a sample of a vegan facial cleanser called Ultraplant. I really love it. It’s one of those oil based balms that melts makeup off and it smells like oranges. I love it. I am using my sample sparingly. I plan to purchase it when my sample runs out.
- Friends who write me letters.
- My pup’s little corn chip paws.
- Easy to use home hair dye.
- Trusted friends I can talk politics with.
That’s all I have. How was your week? What are you looking forward to in March? At the end of the month we are closed for Cesar Chavez day. Yay!

It’ll be easier on you when the daughter gets her license, however, that’s when you will probably worry more as well. The Hunting Party was a DNF for me- it went no where fast if I recall correctly?
Politics is stressful and I tend to just discuss it with loved ones. We did early voting for Super Tuesday and, although the hub and I voted for diff candidates, I doubt either will be the D nominee.
My reading is slow right now because I’m reading in small snatches.
Oh, politics! I’ve unfriended a few people because of them but do have some friends I can talk to about them. It’s tough in a red state!
I love the smell of citrus so your new facial stuff sounds yummy. I am so glad you are enjoying the Crown; I think it’s so well done and interesting! I think I am going to watch 1917 on Netflix after I pack for my conference.
It’s hard to talk politics these days and I, too, am thankful for trusted friends to talk with. We got our mail-in ballots, but FL votes after Super Tuesday, so we’re going to hold on to them a little longer.
Life will get A LOT easier when your daughter has her license… I remember that as being quite a milestone! Reading has been pretty lackluster for me. There’s just too much going on. We’ll see what happens in March…
I love the sound of that week where you did more things that you enjoyed. My social or commitments calendar is barely busy and yet I don’t think I’ve seen such a week in years. Still, I’m trying to tell myself that I’m part of blame by cramming my life with to-do’s. So let’s see if my brain listens (it doesn’t like an idle moment).
I used to be your daughter when my dad tried to get me to learn driving and get my license. Where I grew up, there was even less of an incentive as roads were always crowded and the public transportation was excellent. So I took a LOT longer to get that license, ha!
It’s good when you schedule calms down a bit. You get more breathing room. I suspect that your handwriting is much like my father’s — he loves block lettering.
I hope you have a great week and get back into the reading groove. I’m reading We Are Displaced, which I bought like 2 years ago and put on the shelf and never read. I’m trying to fit in new books and ones I bought based on recommendations — more so than last year.
There’s so much anger when it comes to politics that I tend to just keep my thoughts to myself.
Your daughter will probably love driving once she gets her license that it will be hard to keep her home 🙂 And you will love it too I’m sure.
Good luck to you and your daughter on the driving practice! I’m sure I was a nightmare to teach to drive, so I have all the sympathy in the world for y’all on that. I know she’ll be glad and grateful to you when she gets her license!
The Queen’s sister is good in Season 2 of the Crown, right? That’s what I recall. We are gearing up to start Season 8 of Homeland. hmm. But what to read next? Somehow I missed my library hold on Long Bright River when I was out of town recently. Grrrrr. Now I have to start over again.
