Saturday, January 14, 2017 – P’day, Rehearse “Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo,” Grocery Shopping
Every Saturday for P-day (Preparation Day) Sis. Johnson and I go grocery shopping. This morning on our way, we stopped at the Cultural Hall for a half hour and rehearsed our part of “George & Agatha” in “Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo.” We did this practice without the help of our director, Sis. Lowe. We’ve rehearsed on our own a few other times. We just wanted to sharpen our memorization and timing. I think we are doing very well.
We drove the river road on our way to Keokuk to do our grocery shopping this morning and once again there were Bald Eagles in the trees and on the ice in the river. It is an amazing sight to see so many Bald Eagles. We never tire of seeing them.
It was another very cold, overcast and dreary morning as we drove to Keokuk. When we arrived in the grocery store parking lot we weren’t aware that last Thursday’s snow was all melted and had refrozen as a sheet of black ice. As I drove toward a parking spot my car gently turned sideways and we just kind of slid for a while. It was a strange feeling to not have any control of the car. Thankfully there were no parked cars nearby. The side-slide only lasted about fifty feet and then the car straightened out and we were able to safely park the car. Every morning before we leave our home we pray for safety. And once again our prayer was answered. We are very grateful to the Lord for his protection today and every day.
