Anyway, it's time for the March review post! I was planning on posting it tomorrow, but then I realized that tomorrow was the first of April. So you get the post today!
March ended up being busy, but not super busy. School work, reading, all that normal stuff. The weather was beyond beautiful! Long drives out in the country with a good book are awesome! It's been so pretty out. But. . .surprise! On Resurrection morning, we woke up to...
Yep, that's right. We had snow on Easter. That was the first time that it has happened here in Kansas since 1925. And back then there was only an inch and a half. On Sunday we got almost four inches of snow. Thankfully it melted pretty quickly and we had a beautiful afternoon. We spent Easter Sunday with our cousins in MN! They drove down and spent the day with us, which was a lot of fun!
After the mid-day meal, we sat around a talked for and while, then our aunt and uncle took us all out to see Miracles from Heaven, which was so much fun! And the movie was a lot better then I had expected. :)
Also in March. . . we celebrated my sisters Faith's 15th birthday! Ahh!! I can't believe she's that old already. Well, it's not old, but she's always been my little sister, so it seems old. ;)
She and I share a room, so we're pretty close. This is one nice picture that got taken once we had the camera. The rest were allll goofy. ;) Don't trust us with a camera. The results will be. . .crazy? Yeah, that's a good word.
I actually got a good amount of reading done this month! I finished eleven books, which isn't as many as I'd normally like to read in a month, but with school and all, I think it was a good number. ;)
Books I read this month were. . .
Songbird under a German Moon by Tricia Goyer
True Devotion by Dee Henderson
If He lives by Sarah Holman
Distorted Glass by Sarah Holman
Sweet Sanctuary by Kim Vogel Sawyer
The Negotiator by Dee Henderson
Resistance by Jaye L. Knight
Red Velvet by Sandra Byrd
Wings of a Dream by Anne Mateer
Where do I Start? An Overview of Indie publishing by Jaye L. Knight
The Grand Weaver by Ravi Zacharias
So all together I read 2,763 pages! I'm hoping I can read more in April, but I still have quite a bit of school to catch up on, so we'll see!
Uhhh, writing? My poor stories got so neglected this month. I think all I wrote was the resurrection retelling, and all together that was about 1,600 words. Editing went better, though! I went through and edited the first 20,000 words of the story I wrote during NaNo last year. Augh, it was a mess! It still is, but hopefully the beginning is a little, umm, less of a mess? xD
This is a subject I usually don't post on in my end-of-the-month-post, but there were so many amazing posts this month I decided I just had to recommend a couple for y'all. ;)
Technically this wasn't posted this month, but Emily referenced to it in her Easter post, so I think it counts. I've read this short story 3 times now, and something new stands out to me each time. It's really super good. So go read it. ;)
Because we all write chapters, right? I basically just adored this post. Abi's posts are always so good, but this one was just amazing!
From my Heart Faith just has such a beautiful writing style, and the things she shared in this post were just so meaningful.
I really love this song, and this was such a beautiful rendition of it.
I'm always looking for good biographies, but it can be hard to find some good ones. Jonathan posted about five that he's enjoyed, and I'm looking forward to reading the ones he listed!
And. . .I think that's all for this post. I'm definitely looking forward to April! So far we don't have too much planned except attending the TPA conference here in Wichita next weekend. Which I am sooooo excited about! Anybody else planning on attending??? ;)
