Up, Up and Away AGAIN


Della and Ethel

Tommy drove me to the Airport this morning so I could catch a plane to Mesa. I was there with tons of time to spare and played games on my Ipad. The man next to me on the play was from New Mexico and we talked the whole way there. He was a Stake President so we had lots of Gospel discussions. He can't wait until he can retire and go on a mission.
Ethel picked me up and we had Quinoa soup again for lunch. Ruthie made it for us. Then we spent the evening visiting and Ethel and Della watched TV and Ruth and I worked on our computers. I am all caught up on my blog. Yeah ME!!!
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my wonderful cousins. What a blessing they are to me.

Packing Bags

Down For a Nap

I spent the day doing laundry and packing my bags. Gracie just played all day. She has me play store with her and buy all her toys for lots of money. She gives me a receipt. So funny.
She decided to put Maggie down for a nap. She made Maggie put her head on the pillow and covered her up with my cover and gave her some food from her kitchen stuff. How cute is this.
AJ got done with his training and came over and took Gracie out to the barn and kept her the rest of the day. I was able to finish up my packing and laundry.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for this little munchkin that I get to take care of. I am so blessed.

Idaho Falls Temple

 Connie and Me

 Wally's Twin

I went to the Idaho Falls Temple with Connie today. We did Initiatories  for 10 sisters so we will have them to do Endowments for. I always feel so good when I can go to the Temple. I really love my friend Connie and have tons of fun with her.
Then we went to O'Brady's for lunch. As I was sitting there I looked over and saw this man that is the twin of my nephew Wally. I told Connie that I wanted to take a picture of him so she scooted over to the edge of the seat so I could take a picture and he wouldn't know.
I came home and made Quinoa Chicken soup for dinner. I used the chicken from last night. It was easy and fun.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my friend Connie. I am so blessed to have her in my life.

Looking For A Rolling Back Pack

Austin took Gracie to preschool so I took off and headed to Idaho Falls to find a Rolling Backpack. Janna took mine to Moscow, Idaho when she went to visit Harley.  I was trying to find one. I went to Walmart, no such luck. On to Kohls, nothing, Target had one it was cute and rolling and cost $139. Not on your life was I going to spend that much.
I came home empty handed and put a chicken in my Rotisserie for dinner. It was delicious. I made steamed broccoli and rice.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful that I have my Rotisserie. It is a blessing to be able to feed my family so well.

Cleaning Cupboards

Clean Cupboards

Happy Birthday Girl

Today I started cleaning my cupboards. I got half of them done. Janna is having a cleaning lady come tomorrow so I probably won't get them finished until Friday. Then I am going to pull all the stuff off the top of my cupboards and clean it. If I can't clean it I will get rid of it. I'm on a roll.
I made reservation to fly to Mesa on Sunday. I need to go see my brother. He has been pretty sick. So I think it's time to go see him.
As I was thinking about packing and getting ready for Sunday I realized that Janna has my rolling backpack in Moscow. She went up there on Tuesday to be with Harley on her birthday. So tomorrow I will be hunting down a new backpack. 
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my Harley. She is cute and funny, sweet and a hard worker. I am blessed to have her as my Granddaughter.

Going To The Dentist

I went to the dentist today to have my teeth cleaned. It was so funny. The hygenist that was cleaning my teeth started talking about living in California. Lo and behold she lived in Acton. Her dad sold the property to the church to build the Chapel in Aqua Dulce. She knew the Miller's and Sage's. We just had the best time talking about all the Acton people. I have never had such a good time having my teeth cleaned.
I stopped at Walmart to get some groceries. I came home and Gracie helped me put everything away. She is such a good helper.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for Esther that is such a good Dentist. She is so positive and sweet.

Paying Medical Bills

I had a stack a mile high of medical bills. I made up my mind that I was going to get them done today. I got them all paid and also reconciled my checking account. What a relief to have it all done.
It took me all day.
I spent the evening doing more genealogy. I need to call tomorrow because Glenna is "forbidden" when I try to submit her ordinances to do. I did find some relatives of Johnnie Wood to do. I will just keep plugging along until I get them done.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my ability to do Genealogy. I know this work is so important and know people are waiting on us. Blessed!!
