February 2016 | Month in Review

Hello!!! I feel sooo happy that I am finally able to blog again! I have sat down several times to do it this month, but for some reason, I never seemed to have anything to say. HOWEVER, I am back again, and I couldn't be more excited to blog today!! Since I was gone for basically all of February, I'm going to give a sort of update on what went on this month, most likely with a few other random things thrown in. I will kind of give a report card on this month's resolutions along with the update. I feel like it makes things more interesting to read. :)
Early on this month I got sick (twice!), so there was a whole lot of sleeping, reading, tea-drinking, and snuggling under blankets. I have to admit, it was nice to rest and relax, but I definitely would have enjoyed it much more if I was feeling well. *shame on you, sickness!*

Play practice, memorizing lines, and character development have been a significant part of this month as well! I am really enjoying the play this year. Being involved in a play is hands-down amazing. There is beautiful bonding with the cast, hilarious memories, and unceasing amounts of laughter during practice! (Hooray for comedies!) Our performances are only a month away, so things are going to be crazy pretty soon, but it is SO. MUCH. FUN. I just got my costume, and I am super excited about learning how to do the 1940's hairstyles, makeup, and all that fun stuff!

Thankfully, there has been a good chunk of time that I wasn't sick, and in that time, I did a good bit of experimenting in the kitchen! That was one of my resolutions, and I am really glad that I was able to fulfill it. I found some delicious ways to make sorbet and dairy-free ice cream, which was a complete WIN. It was so much fun to get into the kitchen and let my creativity loose! I love cooking.

As I mentioned before, there was a lot of time for me to do reading, and I also have amazing friends who secretly bought me Anne of Avonlea and had it shipped to my house! I was sooo surprised to get that in the mail! It had me squealing with happiness!  (Seriously, who doesn't LOVE surprise packages?!)  Since I finished the book way too early in the month, and because I knew that I would devour the entire series if I didn't take drastic measures to restrain myself, I read that lovely book all over again! I am really happy that I own the entire series now. So, so happy. (many thanks to my dad for that thrift store win!!) I am going to post my review for Anne of Avonlea very, very soon, so be looking out for it!

As far as school goes, I am learning a lot about pace. I tried to cram in order to catch up, and it just wasn't working out. When it comes to setting goals, I am very idealistic. However, I tend to crash when things don't work out like I anticipated. I did not completely catch up on everything like I wanted to, but I am blessed to be homeschooled and be able to learn at my own pace, which matters a lot more.

Something I have been working on this month is a sort of schedule or guideline for blogging. I am considering picking one day of the week as my "blogging day," and that way I will publish one post a week on a set day. I really like the idea, but I will need to do some more thinking and planning before putting it into action. 

Another thing I want to share is this video from Sadie Robertson. She made some great points about finding your confidence in God, instead of seeking it in yourself. I found it really encouraging and I hope it is the same for you. It is definitely worth taking the time to watch!

Have a lovely day!!
