February 15th – 21st
Happy Birthday to my Mom (her birthday was on the 15th)!
I made my mom and oldest sister each a ring. I went with my parents, my brother, and my brother’s girlfriend to Cracker Barrel for supper to celebrate my mom’s birthday.
The message from February 16th was titled, “You’re Being Influenced”. Three steps that we can take that will help guard ourselves from getting off track are; 1) Avoid The Wrong People (2 Timothy 3:1-5, Matthew 23:27-28, 1 Corinthians 15:33, & Proverbs 22:24-25), 2) Connect With The Right People (2 Timothy 3:10-11 & 1 Corinthians 11:1), & 3) Stay Close to The Scriptures (James 1:22-25 & 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
After church my parents and I went and got a few groceries then went and got a present for my next to the youngest nephew.
I helped my brother shovel the sidewalk and driveway before he left for work and then I shoveled again (since it snowed again) right before my mom got home from work. I read some.
Happy 12th Birthday to my next to the youngest nephew (his birthday was on the 18th)!
I did some laundry and went with my brother to get supper since my mom came home from work sick.
I finished reading Stranded in Paradise by Lori Copeland on February 18th. I had started reading it on February 11th. I started reading Where Courage Calls by Janette Oke on February 18th.
I went with my brother to drop some items off at the library.
It is now required that every bedroom have a smoke detector.
This is the one they put in my bedroom. Sometimes I see it in my peripheral vision and I think there is something on my ceiling that shouldn’t be there.
My parents, brother, and I went out for breakfast and then ran some errands. My parents wanted a ‘new’ computer. We went to a used computer store and they got a refurbished tower. We dropped my dad off at home after running a few errands, then my mom, brother, and I went to a few more places. I picked up a small toy for my next to the youngest nephew for his birthday. Later in the day we (my parents, brother, and I) went and got my oldest sister from work. Her husband had their vehicle. We took her to run an errand then took her home. We stopped and got something for supper then we went to my next to the oldest nephew’s band concert. After the concert we went to my older sister’s to give my next to the youngest nephew his presents for his birthday.
I took my mom to get some records that she needs for a Doctor’s appointment that she has in a week out of town. I then took her grocery shopping. I was able to find a new tablet for a reasonable price (my ereader/tablet quit working months ago). We went to a few stores looking for dish gloves for my dad. He is the one that does dishes and he wants to use gloves. Only a few places carry the extra large ones that he needs. The stores that usually do carry them didn’t have any in. We came home and I helped my mom make lasagna for supper. I also made some Banana bread in the bread machine.
February 22nd – 28th
I did some laundry. I also made my mom a red velvet cheesecake for her birthday (a week late). I fixed a zipper on a coat for my youngest nephew. I also made my older sister a ring like my oldest sister’s. I read some.

I go the recipe from this website.
February 23rd was my day to help out in Children’s Church.
After church we stopped at a grocery store to get some cereal and cough syrup. The cough syrup was for me since I have a cough and it isn’t going away. I rested in the afternoon and read some.
Still not feeling well so I rested most of the day. I read some.
The only picture I took on February 24th was this one- a picture of the neighbor’s yard with the hospital in the background. I took this picture because I thought it was weird that there wasn’t any snow in the middle of the yard.
