Month in Review: February 2013

Another month has come and gone...and as this is posted, I will be well into the first day of the MS Challenge Walk - a 50 mile walk to support those living with MS. Once the walk is over, I am hoping to resume my regular workout routine - walking everyday (just not crazy distances!) and yoga 2-3 times a week. I'm hopeful that the warm weather will be here soon as the dog loves going out for long walks!

I'm still getting in a fair amount of crocheting - I finished the blanket for my niece Keegan, who I will finally get to meet at the end of March (they live in London and will be coming home for a visit). My brother and his wife found out they are having a girl in June, so my sister-in-law and I picked out the colors for their blanket. I love making these blankets...there's just something about having a handmade keepsake.

Here are my reading stats for February!

  1. You had a great reading month! I didn't read as many as I'd hoped. I put up a post of my Feb reads too.

  2. great month! I'm wondering: are you crocheting and reading at the same time? I knew someone who did that. I would thing it's even easier with ebooks.
    here is my February wrap-up:

  3. Hope your MS walk goes well! I have The House Girl and plan to read it this month. You had a very good reading month!
