Monday Memories ~On This Date

 
January 29, 2013
It was perhaps the coldest day of that winter, five years ago.
We had received word that my mother had fallen and  broken her hip.
Because she was 92 years old and had heart problems, 
she was considered a high risk patient,
so was transfered to the hospital in Grand Forks.

It was cold in Aberdeen, but even colder in Grand Forks.

Not knowing how long I would be gone, 
I prepared several lessons for the substitute teacher.

January 29, 2012
Fitness for Life students were studying proteins
and learned the art of making a homemade breakfast burrito.

January 29, 2014
This was the year I had broken both of my wrists.
On this day, 
I had received the clearance to leave my soft splints at home.

To celebrate, hubby bought a new watch for me.
I had not worn a watch or a bracelet for nearly four months!

January 29, 2015
I enjoyed making a crockpot of soup for my knitting club.

Hubby had a new bag for his cymbal hardware,
and Callie needed to break it in.

Boston received that record snowfall.
Emily and Jake were coping with that mess.

January 29, 2016
Everyone needs some extra motivation 
to get through the long month of January.

We enjoyed some Friday Night Jazz at the Brass Kettle.
This was before their big rennovation.
 .
January 29, 2017
We took a break from our Saturday errands
and enjoyed some appetizers at Mavericks.
These are their delicious Moo Shu Egg Rolls

January 29, 2018
I was up at 5:30 this morning.
This was the view of the moon from our patio.
The official Super Blue Blood Moon Happening is not until the 31st.

Today, I eavesdropped on this conversation.
I told them that their secrets were safe with me.

I hope you had a marvelous Monday!

Take care,
~Natalie
