Saturday Duties

I made bread today because I was out. I love using Kamut. It is such a soft flour that when I mix it with Spelt and Wheat flour my bread is really light. And did I mention I love to make bread. .
I worked on my Primary lesson and played on my ipad. All in all it was a wonderful day.
AJ came over tonight to tell me that my daughter wanted me. I was in my moo moo dress and just hanging out. When I went over the Missionaries were there talking to Janna and the kids. One of them is from Gilbert, Arizona and the other one is from Safford. I said my hello's and then my goodbye's. Janna is in big trouble.
Dean called today to see how everyone was doing. It was so good to talk to him. Can't wait to see him in a week and a half.
Now it's my beddie bye time.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for the Missionaries. Bless them for being willing to leave home and family for 2 years to serve.

Walking The Farm

Back Pasture

I started walking this morning around the farm. You can see forever. So pretty and such a view to enjoy while walking. I am trying to walk 10,000 steps every day. Wish me luck...,
I finished canning all the tomatoes from last year into Spaghetti Sauce. One job down, one million to go.
Ruth was supposed to walk with me while we talked on the phone. She was too lazy she said so I walked without her.  I know I need to move more so I am going to try to do this. It is beautiful weather so I am good to go.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for this beautiful world Heavenly Father made. It is such a delight to walk and enjoy all this. I am blessed.

Canning Spaghetti Sauce

Spaghetti Sauce

I got up this morning and decided that I was going to take care of myself and eat right and walk, walk, walk. And that's just what I did. I ate only healthy foods and walked 9000 steps all around my house.
I made Spaghetti Sauce with Tomatoes that I had canned last year and bottled it for my pantry. It felt good to accomplish this task that I had been thinking about for some time. Tomorrow I am going to do more.
I also made Ribs and Baked Potatoes for dinner. I had a chicken breast with 3 whole wheat crackers.
Brother Olsen came over tonight to minister to us. He read the entire talk by President Nelson from the Priesthood session. Then he tried to call me to repentance asking me if I had a certain time set aside to go to the Temple and do my Family History. That made Tommy a little mad and he told him that he needed to do it himself and not me, that I had done genealogy for years. Poor Brother Olson. I tried to warn him not to call Tommy to repentance but I guess he didn't hear. 
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for this good and fruitful day. I prayed last night that I would be able to take care of myself better and it happened. Oh, the power of pray. Blessed!!

Play Date with Alice

Alice and Gracie

Today was a really good day. I had to do book work for Janna and it just happened that Gracie had a play date with Alice. These two played all afternoon together and had such a good time. They are so sweet to each other and they don't argue. 
I was able to finish all the stuff I needed to get done for Janna. And Gracie had such a good time with Alice. And I didn't make any dinner. I called Janna and told her to stop and get something because the kitchen was closed at my house. 
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for sweet little Alice. She is so cute and kind. Blessed to know her.

Gray Day

 My Sweet Brother

Today was a hard day. I just couldn't stay on my diet or exercise or anything. I did get Janna's book work done and made Taco's for dinner. 
Gracie hung out with me and played with her Legos and watched shows on her ipad. She is such a good kid. Never have to worry about her getting into stuff.
Shawn and Kenny sent me this picture and 2 pieces of Phyllis' Indian jewelry. How sweet is that. I love my family. I love the love we have for each other. This was such a wonderful surprise that came in the mail. I am one lucky Aunt to have such wonderful nieces and nephews.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my extended family. I am blessed that we are close.

Sunday, April 15, 2018



Today was an exceptional day. The Primary president told Connie and I that they have teachers so we can divide our class into reasonable numbers. Connie and I were elated. It is hard to teach 15 kids. By the time you get around to all of them they are crazy out of control. So next Sunday we will see who we have. I know I will miss the ones that go to the other class.
Gracie went to her class with Alice, her very best friend. She was really good.
I came home from church and did a big fat nothing. I did boil eggs in my pressure cooker for my salads. It it so fast and easy.
I watched Relative Race on the BYU channel. I really love this show. Now it's my bedtime.
Grateful Statement: So grateful for Connie and our little Sunbeams. It is truly a blessing to be one of their Sunbeam teachers.

Walmart and Cosmoprof

Gracie and Onion

I picked up my house to get it ready for the cleaning lady. Our favorite Tammy is back. Now this lady knows how to clean. After I finished that and took my shower Gracie and I headed to Idaho Falls to Cosmoprof for hair products for Janna and then to Walmart for a few groceries and some other stuff. When we came home Tammy had still not shown up. I guess she had a hair appointment and it took three hours. So she came around 4 and scrubbed my bathrooms and then went over to Janna to clean hers. 
Gracie played outside all afternoon with the kitties and riding her bike. She watched Lion Guard while I made Sausage, Eggs, Gravy and Biscuits for dinner.
I started working on deleting my pictures from the Cloud and my phone. My storage is almost full on my phone.
Connie texted me about the handouts. I printed them out for her tonight so she can pick them up tomorrow.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for this little munchkin. Heavenly Father blessed me so much when she came to live with me. I am blessed!!
