Another month has come and gone, so I’m checking in with the progress of my little self-imposed reading challenge. Can you believe it’s almost March already?
I am disappointed to report that I didn’t read any classics this month. Review books simply overwhelmed me, along with my book club pick for the month, there was no time. So as much as I’d like to get back to reading Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen after I finish my current read, I’ve decided to commit myself to reading a classic next, probably in a couple of days. The question is – what classic to read next? I honestly cannot make up my mind.
Why not put it to vote?
Here are the classics that I read in January for anyone interested, it was a glorious month of Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery!
Have you read any classics this month?
Outside my window: It’s a fairly pretty day, sunny with a high of 32 predicted. Tomorrow we have a predicted high of 39 and this makes me probably a little too giddy. I cannot believe that February is nearly over, March beginning tomorrow and then before we know it, it will be Spring, April, my son will turn 5 years old and *knock on wood* we’ll be buying our first house! I cannot wait!
This weekend: was fairly low key, a lot of lounging around the apartment coloring and playing with toys, though we did go to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese for one of the little girls across the hall. Those girls are such little sweeties and it was nice to see them again, as it’s been a crazy couple weeks and we’ve had less play dates lately than usual. I’m hoping this week we’ll get back into the swing of things with stomach bugs well out of the way!
We also: finally went for a walk yesterday before dinner. It was glorious and while I wouldn’t call it warm weather, it was finally bearable and the breeze and fresh air felt wonderful, along with the great feeling of finally getting a workout in my favorite way – good old fashioned walking. We walked about 1.5 miles and plan to continue to do so daily, barring any horrific weather.
I’m reading: Friendship Bread by Darien Gee and starting to like it a lot more. After the initial shock of realization about the tragedy described in the book (one character is suffering from the death of her son 5 years before the book begins) I decided that I really needed to finish the book so that I could get to the “happy ending” and I have to say it gets easier to read about as you go and the story is worth it. I’m about 2/3rds through and enjoying it a lot.

One last pictures to share before I go: I now have two kids interested in photography. This cute toy camera has been getting a lot of bumps and bangs and love thumps from both children lately. Soon I’ll be posting 365 pictures by them!
