Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – March 2018

Posted on by

The beginning of March was wet. Lots and lots of rain. We had two days early in the month where it hit 70’s and I spent that time outside checking on my garden and enjoying the warmer weather. Then more rain came, but finally the last week in March it stoped and we had weather in the high 60’s to low 70’s with sun. Yes, I love the sun and when it’s out I’m outside working on the blog, reading, or writing reviews. I’ve got a lot of flowers in my garden and our bird feeder is seeing a lot of birds. It’s lovely. We have two Mountain Blue Jay’s that come around along with some smaller birds I think Finches. We also spent those nice days after school at the park and of course Saphira went with us.

  1. You have some very pretty flowers. I don’t have any up yet. We had 4 inches of snow on Monday. I’m hoping spring arrives soon.

    • Thank’s for visiting, Aj. I hear that many are still barred in snow =/ that’s the nice thing about CA I don’t have to deal with snow and my flowers bloom year round. I did get a lot in. More then I expected, but also through in several re-reads well listens for the first time on my favorites. ^_^

  7. You read a lot of my favorites this month, and you’ve picked up a lot that look really, really good. I was doing strictly my review TBR, but I decided to stick a few of the books I had from my favorite series that I needed to catch up on. I loved the Ella Summers series. I’ll be watching for your reviews on those!

    • The newest book 6 just came out for Ella Summers. I can’t wait to dive into that one. ^_^ Ya, I through in a bunch of my favorites, so I don’t get to burned out with reviews. It was a nice month, better then I thought it would be. Thank’s for visiting.
