Alright. I'm ready to move onto April. It's my birthday month. I tend to get pretty excited about it, even if I have to wait until the end to have my bday celebration.
The weeks leading up to Easter tend to be a bit hectic for a pastors' family. And of course, the way to ensure that you never ever catch up on anything is to have spring break the week after Easter. We didn't go anywhere exotic, but D had a few playdates and we spent a lot of time relaxing.
What I Read/Reviewed:
I reviewed eight books this month. 1 was a memoir, 1 was a poetry collection, and the rest were fiction. Two were library books, five were for review, and one was calling to me from my own bookshelves.
The Only Ones Flight of Dreams The Tsar of Love and Techno
The Hours Count The Gone-Away World Nimona
Felicity Making It Home
A favorite for this month? Honestly, it was an embarrassment of riches. Read The Only Ones. And Flight of Dreams and The Tsar of Love and Techno. Also The Gone-Away World. And add Making It Home if you are one of the humans with little people running around at your house.
Favorite posts from this month:
I had a blast writing a "Day in the Life" post for Trish's event. Some people wrote about their days at work, others wrote about retirement or being home with kids, but it was so much fun to read each one and get a little glimpse into the days of other bloggers.
What I've Been Watching:
We have a lot of tv shows in rotation - Quantico, Jane the Virgin, The Good Wife, New Girl, Sleepy Hollow, Agents of Shield. I'm probably forgetting a few.
I also watched The Last Five Years a few weeks ago and really liked it. I wasn't sure I would enjoy it because I am a big fan of the original cast album with Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott. But Jeremy Jordan and Anna Kendrick did a great job and I think the movie format was able to make some scenes fuller than they could be onstage with a cast of two.
What I've Been Listening To:
The Last Five Years, because I watched the movie. A fair amount of Hamilton, as usual. Also some Into the Woods. Gungor and Audrey Assad are frequent visitors to my phone or computer as well.
