*searches through journal entries from the past month* Ahem. I may have momentarily forgotten what we did during March. XD
Honestly, March has been the best month of 2020. Amidst all the fear of the coronavirus and days where I collapsed on my bed and wondered, “Is it bad that being happy seems like such hard work?”, I did laugh a lot and find a lot of hope.
Beginning of March:
March got off to a rocky start and I was afraid that it would continue in that path. It ended up turning out well, though.
It was around the beginning of March that I really started to hear about the coronavirus. God has given me a lot of peace about the virus. Normally, I would have been freaking out and just avoiding all of humanity. But I’m not. That kind of peace is God and God’s hand alone. There are times when I get scared but I’m trusting God in my fears. If we get the virus, He is still God. If we die, He is still God. If our worst fear comes true, He is still God.
Middle of March:
I did a lot of school. For one of my classes, I’m reading The Iliad. I’m about two-thirds of the way through. I’ve been amazed at how well the battle scenes keep my attention, even though I’ve been reading about battle for most of the book. *nods* Now I’m wondering how I can duplicate that in my own writing….XD
It finally got nice and warm and we were able to take some nice walks. The trees are budding and the grass is growing (yay for mowing!). Everything is very spring like here.
General piece of trivia about me: I used to hate spring. I think it was mainly because of all of the storms and tornados and we didn’t always live in places that had basements. *bites nails*
I wrote a lot of blog posts. I had a sudden inspiration for blogging. I also decided to post every three days instead of once every two days. So now I have tons of future blog posts written for later. XD Every night when I’m trying to sleep, I’ll get all of these great blogging ideas (and then I wake up and can’t remember them. XD)
End of March:
We watched a lot of fun movies. 😉 It’s amazing how time flies when you’re watching interesting movies! I also got nine new books for my kindle. *smiles* (I have diverse reading interests. XD)
Yoveil was looking at a picture book and I was trying to finish a blog post.
Me: Baby, go see if we can watch a movie.
Yoveil laid down on the floor: I’m so tired. I need a rest. That was a big book.
A few seconds later, she got up and headed for the door.
Yoveil: I’m going to go ask about the movie now! And you don’t even have to do anything I want you to do!
Another fun thing that I did was to help my little brother start a WordPress blog. He’d had a blog on Blogspot for a while, but it wasn’t going anywhere, so we decided to create a blog dedicated to his favorite thing – food! XD You can find it here: https://thecookieblob.wordpress.com/
Thus ends March. 😉 🙂
What did you do this month? What are you looking forward to in April? Has spring come to you yet? What books are you reading? Do you do yard work?
