2020: March wrap-up

MARCH 2020 WRAP-UP

Amazing how the world has changed since my February wrap-up!
I hope you are all doing well and keeping safe.

Actually, life is still about the same for me, as I work from home, teaching French, and this keeps me really busy these days, with among others, two of my students preparing two different and very demanding exams.

The only major change is Church. We closed our Church on March 14, so besides our usual home prayers, we are watching services from a monastery through livestreaming videos. We have also organized some Skype Conferences for our parishioners, and also social hour, just to chat together.
Last time we left home was basically on March 11, so we are doing good so far.

The above and many phone calls, skype sessions, and emails with many people, parishioners, friends, and family members, have kept me super busy.
Hence so little activity on this blog for a while. I apologize for those who have left comments, and that I haven’t approved yet. I haven’t visited many other blogs recently either. And now I am a few reviews behind.
Some days, I’m too exhausted to read in the evening. So my pace has slowed down a bit.

ūüďö¬†So here are the titles I read in March:

7 books:
6 in print 
=  with 1,139 pages, an average of 36 pages/day
1 in audio
= 2H44
, an average of 5 minutes

5 in nonfiction:

  1. Theological Territories: a David Bentley Hart Digest, by David Bentley Hart – ebook, for review. See notes (to be continued, upcoming review)

  3. The Book of Numbers –¬†audiobook
  4. Civil Disobedience, by Henry David Thoreau –¬†ebook
  5. Le petit livre de la vie r√©ussie, by Anselm Gr√ľn – for review

2 in mystery:

  1. Hi Emma, I understand the situation. Pretty much all the same here. I suppose it is a good thing to stay in close touch with those who mean the most to us. We should probably do that anyway. I just wanted to check in and say hello. Glad you are well.

  2. Keeping busy and productive is the best thing (besides staying home) for your health now, so I’m glad you are doing well! We are maintaining here too and I’m making my days fly by with reading, exercising, connecting to online friends every day, chores, cooking, and trying new recipes if I have the ingredients or equivalents. We are in sad need of groceries and right now have a slot for Wed which I hope won’t be cancelled like last week’s was.
