But anyways, I thought I'd do a quick posts of our month-in-review.
So. . .what happened in February?
--Well, it started out nice and warm! We've had weather in the 60s and 70s most of the month, which was awesome! Dad took us to one of the state parks that's about thirty minutes away and we spent the first Saturday of the month hiking. I think (if I remember correctly) that we walked a total of seven miles. Toward the end it got harder because both my little brothers wanted to be carried.
|Everyone who went on the hike. One of my sister stayed home with mom, convinced that hiking was the worst possible way to spend a Saturday.|
--I read a total of eight books, and around 2,395 pages. Which, after reading twenty books in January, made me feel like I had hardly read at all. But I learned that sometimes it's best to cut back on reading to be able to focus on more important things. :)
--I got my story back from the last person who beta-read it for me! Which was sorta exciting and fun, sorta oh-there-is-so-much-that-needs-work.
--Because of that, I spent most of my free time editing. Guys, I don't know how it's possible to edit 75K+ manuscripts. Mine is a novella, around 40K words, and it drove me nuts. If you have a novel-length story you're working on, then you have my utmost respect. Because editing is hard work, and you're awesome. (I mean that sincerely)
--A very dear friend sent me a bag of chocolates to help me with editing. Seriously, that made my whole day. Chocolate makes editing so much more bearable, as do dear friends who encourage you!
--I watched Return to the Hiding Place!! Okay, I know I already went on and on about this in the last post, but seriously! It deserved to be mentioned again. And we're watching at again tonight, so I'm excited!!
--I made two or three library trips. Which was awesome! :D The only thing awesome-r then a library trip is going to their used book-sale section, and getting 2 series by your FAVORITE authors for a total of $1.50. The paperbacks are $0.25 each book, and I got six books in almost brand-new condition. I may or may not have felt like skipping through the library with them in my hands. (Just for the record, I didn't. I stayed very quiet and respectful until I got outside. ;))
And there you have it. That was pretty much what I did this past month. Nothing too exciting, but I was blessed and God is good. All the time.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a blessed weekend! I'll be spending most of my day finishing editing, and then tomorrow we have some fun outings planned.
