Month in Review: February 2020


February was a pretty busy month!  My sister and I did a wood pallet painting class - it was Disney themed and so much fun!  Tom and I saw Birds of Prey - I think he was way more interested in it than I was, but it wasn't bad.  For Valentine's Day, Tom and I went out to lunch and also visited an axe throwing pit (I'm not sure what this says about our marriage, haha!).  He was better at it overall, BUT I got the first bullseye!  We held our annual Project Linus Make a Blanket Day and had a great turnout.  We collected over 75 blankets and made another 23 at the event!  The weather overall this month was warmer than normal, but it also rained a ton, so we couldn't really do anything outside.

How was your February?

  1. You and your sister do some fun stuff. I am not artistic, but the painting sounds great. I tried to listen to Nine Perfect Strangers, but I struggle when the narrator has an accent. I need to be totally focused, and I am usually doing something else when I listen to audiobooks. I saw some of these on your blog, but curious about how you liked some of the others.

    1. Yes, I'm lucky she lives fairly close and we can do stuff together! I sometimes struggle with narrator's accents, too, but this one was okay for me, I could actually understand her!

  7. I just realized looking at your books that I never read Nine Perfect Strangers. Yikes. How did I skip over a Liane Moriarty? I should pick that one up. Anyway, sounds like your february was a pretty good one. :) The axe throwing pit sounds fun haha. We did that once at a Renaissance fair.

    1. Hah, yeah, we've been wanting to go for awhile!

      I still have one more Liane Moriarty out there to read, The Last Anniversary.

  8. So many fun activities this month! I think it says great things about your marriage that you and your hubby went axe throwing together. I love that. Your list reminds me that I still haven't read that Liane Moriarty book yet. I'm listening to another of hers, The Husband's Secret, on audio now so maybe I'll tackle that one soon as well.

    1. Haha, we did have fun, so I guess that's good!

      I actually really enjoyed Nine Perfect Strangers, although lots of people have said it was a miss for her.

    So many books, amazing! So glad you read the latest by Louise Penny, and now we have to wait September 1st for her next one.

    1. The blankets are given to children who are ill or in need somehow, so we donate them to hospitals, homeless shelters, foster care, etc. It's a wonderful charity!

      Well, at least there's another Louise Penny to look forward to!

  14. I really like that Fairest showed the villain's side of the story, but it didn't make me like or feel sorry for her. I understand that she was neglected, physically and emotionally abused, but she ended up being way worse by far.
