Where did January go? Here we are in February already and I feel like I completely lost the month of January. I forgot to post my January Mosaic on Monday so I will go ahead and do it now before I forget again. This was a fellow blogger’s idea who lives on the other side of the world and I thought it was a good one, a good way to commemorate a month. A century or two ago, it was common to keep journals and it was perfectly fine to enter only a sentence or two about what you did that day. This monthly mosaic goes along those lines allowing me to remember a snippet of my year. I like that idea.
I was in severe pain when January started out and it took nine days before I learned my gallbladder was in bad shape. It took another week to get in to see the surgeon and the next day I had it removed. Although I briefly agonized over the decision to remove it I am more than happy I did because the pathology report revealed it had been giving me issues for quite some time. So……….most of January was lost to recovery naps but I managed to start a pair of socks and join a stranded cowl knit along. I did a bit of weaving but only because my loom was already warped.
The highlight of the month was going to Denver to stay with my daughter three days. Since I couldn’t drive yet, hubby had to take me half-way where she picked me up and took me on to her home. I was introduced to ‘bath bombs’ on this trip and now want some more of them, bright flowers from the hubby, alpaca stitch markers from a favorite shop and going to the theatre.
Snippets of life…..
