January 2021 started with our whole province in a lock down and ended with our province in an even stricter lock down. Yay?!?
1 - Friday -- We had a fun brunch with mimosas for all, watched the movie Soul on Disney+, and I walked over 12km (7.5 miles).
2 - Saturday -- I baked buns and we went for a winter walk to the library and ran into a few people on the path.
3 - Sunday -- We cleaned up all the Christmas and Channukah things, watched a few Hallmark movies, and did some shoveling.
4 - Monday -- I got to work in the school and it was so quiet -- only four people in the whole building.
5 - Tuesday -- This was one of the busier days I've worked and I felt like I was two tasks behind all day long.
6 - Wednesday -- I watched the news for basically seven hours straight trying to take in what I was seeing and what had happened.
7 - Thursday -- We had our first take out and family game night and it was pretty fun. (More sentences: Also, the province announced that our kids would continue remote learning for two more weeks. Ugh.)
