What I Learned

What I Learned: February 2016


February is over!  It’s hard to believe, but I have to admit I’m very excited that winter is coming to an end.  My hydrangeas are already budding, and the last two days in the 70’s have me hopeful that Spring is just around the corner.

Once again, I’m joining in with Emily to share ‘What We Learned in February‘.

1. I might be the only person who didn’t enjoy reading All the Light We Cannot See.  I tried.  Really, I did, but for some reason I just couldn’t get into it.  It’s possible that sleep-deprivation has gotten the better of me.  Or maybe I just don’t have a mind for good literature.  Either way, I returned it to the library unfinished.

2.  A Chef’s Life.  Oh my, this TV show on PBS is so great!  If you like to cook and you like southern food, this show is for you.  It follows a sweet story of Vivian, a chef who was trained in NYC and then moved back to her hometown in Eastern North Carolina to open a restaurant.  Each episode focuses on a different ingredient used in southern cooking.  Bradley and I are enjoying this one. (You can watch episodes here).

3. Turning 34 was harder than I had anticipated.  But I’m learning to count every day as a gift and look for ways to begin again in my journey to know Christ.

4. Spain is beautiful.  No, I didn’t go there, but Bradley did and the pictures that he took are stunning.  Some day we’ll go back together….

5. How to draw a rose with chalk.  My sister gave me a chalkboard lettering book for Christmas (this one, in case you’re interested) and I finally sat down one afternoon a few weeks ago to check it out.  The instructions were easy to follow and I’m pretty happy with the finished product.  Isabella chose the word HOPE for this board, and I’m keeping that up through Lent.

6. My Grandparents are just as fun with my children as they were with me.  My parents brought them to town for a brief visit, and we had such a great time.  We only had the afternoon and evening together, but it was wonderful.  I’m so thankful that my children are able to know their Great-grandparents.

February was a delightful month!

    I just read and reviewed All the Light We Cannot See on my blog a month or two ago and I have to say I don’t think you missed anything by not finishing it. I think it was well written but just kind of depressing! :p
