Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – March 2018

 

 

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.

Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – Feb. 2018

 

February has come and gone. The weather in California where I live has been mostly sun and in the mid 50’s, but we had one week of 70 degree weather for 5 days strait. It was so nice that I spent the time outside reading, working on the blog, and gardening. I bought some hanging planters and planted them. I also bought Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food and have been using it as instructed once a week. My plants haven’t looked this good in a while. My rosebush I didn’t think it would make it, it didn’t do well last year, but with the help of the plant food, it’s come back to life along with other plants in my garden.

 

 

 

Besides my garden I’ve got birds visiting daily. I’ve got a Mountain Blue Jay. Haven’t caught a picture of him, but he’s nice and have several other birds that stop by the bird feeder we put in last year.

 

 

What else have we been up too. We do soccer year round and my boy loves it. Kindergarten Celebrated their 100 days this month and they went on their first field trip. Unfortunately my son missed the field trip since he was sick. They sent home a notice on Friday of possible strep throat, that weekend my son got sick (no signs of strep throat), but he had a fever and coughing all weekend. Then Monday the field trip day and he’s still coughing, so I kept him home.

 

 

I participate in several hops throughout the year and also I offer up surprise giveaways. Here are the winners of this months giveaways.
