Getting Spelt

 Going to Sugar City

Spelt From the Farm

I went to Sugar City this morning and bought 3 (50 lb) bags of Spelt. I love to go to their farm and pick it up. They grow it in Boise and move it down here to sell. I found out today that they also sell Kamut. They call it a different name but it's the same thing. I told her I would be back to get some more. It was pretty muddy so my poor car is a mess.
After I got back Connie and I went to Broulims Dairy Queen so she could get lunch and I got a blizzard and we went over the list of kids and divided it up. We were going to send our little Charley to the other class because she is just a pill. She won't sit in her chair and won't listen to her mom who is a Primary Teacher. But we decided it we didn't make her behave no one else would. I don't mind taking her out and telling her that it isn't acceptable to lay on the floor during opening exercises. So we are keeping her. Now I just need to send an email to the Primary President to let her know what we came up with.
I came home from that and make Meatballs, Rice, Vegetables and a yummy sauce to put over them. I love to make them because it is so easy to do and they are so delicious.
In between all this I did all my laundry so tomorrow I can pack my bags for Scrapping Weekend.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful that I found this farm to get my grain for my food storage. What a blessing it is to be able to get Spelt and Kamut so close. Blessing for me!!

Going To Church

Gracie and I went to church today. She finally got to meet her new teacher. She is not wanting to leave my class but I hope it gets better.
I only had 8 Sunbeams today so it was really easy to do the lesson. We learned about trees, plants, fruits and vegetables. The kids had fun with the bean bag toss. They seem to really love it and it makes them pay attention.
The Primary President told me that they were going to split our class so we wouldn't have 20 Sunbeams, only 10. Now that's manageable. Connie and I are excited and we get to split the class up ourselves.
After church I came home and sat in my chair and worked on the classes from Scrap Girls. I seem to learn a little bit each time. Little tricks of the trade.
I didn't even make dinner. Just hung out. Maddie was over so Gracie was in 7th heaven. She loves to play with her.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my Sunbeam Class. Those little one just grow on you. What a blessing to be one of their teachers.

Harley Is Going Home

 Harley is Going Home

Jari got Gracie PJ

I spent this day being lazy. I bought some classes from Scrap Girl and I started on #1. I learned a few things that I didn't know. Tomorrow it will be #2.  
Janna took Harley to the Shuttle so she could ride it to Salt Lake Airport to catch her plane to Moscow. Back to school she goes. I will miss her!!
I managed to make White Chicken Chili and Corn Bread for dinner. 
I watched Black List all day while doing this stuff. I just felt tired and sad all day. I really must get out of this mood I am in. Maybe going to Scrap Weekend next week will help.
Grateful Statement: I am grateful for my sweet Harley. She is a true blessing in my life.

Catch Up

My Computer

I spent the day working on my blog. I am caught up. WAHOO!!! Now I just need to keep it current.
Janna, AJ, Harley and Gracie went to Bob and Jari in Pocatello for dinner. So I didn't have to cook. That is good for me so I could just do whatever I wanted all day long.
I printed my primary stuff out so I could get prepared.
Grateful Statement: I am grateful for my computer. It serves me well. I am blessed.

Johnnie's Obituary

With his loving family at his side, Johnnie Lee Keith died in the early morning Saturday, March 3, 2018, at the home of his son in Lakeside. He was 80 years old. Johnnie was born Tuesday, March 16, 1937, in Bernalillo, N.M. to the late Walter Lee Keith and Beulah Petersen Keith.
As a toddler, Johnnie moved to Arizona with his family. He was a graduated member of Snowflake High School's - class of 1954. On September 9, 1955, Johnnie married his sweet bride, Phyllis Wahl, in the Mesa Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Together, they raised two wonderful children, who were each the "lights of their eyes." Sadly, Phyllis died in October 2014, only a month after celebrating their 59th wedding anniversary. For the remainder of his life, Johnnie found a great deal of peace knowing that theirs was a marriage that would last throughout the eternities; even, breaking the bands of death.
In the late '60s, Johnnie, and his brothers-in-law, Bob and Steve Wahl, formed KW Logging. They ran a successful logging company for many, many years. Work was Johnnie's hobby and he taught his family, by example, the value of hard work. His incredible work ethic served him well throughout his life; as he was always able to provide a loving and comfortable home to his family. It has been said that "Johnnie hauled more logs than any other logger in the entire Southwest." He hauled his last load of logs at the age of 78.
Johnnie always possessed a positive attitude and was a true friend to all. He lived by the motto that, "Every day’s a good day!" and recited it daily to his family. He was a man who loved his Lord and sought to serve Him throughout his life. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many capacities of the Church in Arizona and New Mexico; including a calling as the Cibecue Branch President. One of his favorite callings in the Church was that of serving as a Stake Clerk for several years. He knew just about every member of his stake on a first name basis. He was a great example to his family and community in showing them how to experience the joy of serving others. Johnnie was a faithful home teacher throughout his life and even had the opportunity to complete his home teaching assignment, for the last time, in February of this year. He truly loved others and always believed that "When in the service of (his) fellow beings, he was only in the service of God."
He is survived by his son, Kenny (Shawn) Keith of Lakeside; daughter Julene (Mark) Muder of Show Low; sister Janice (Tom) Ingram of Rigby, Idaho; four grandchildren: Chris (Kaylee) Muder of Show Low, Shelly (Nic) Finch of St. Johns, Brian Muder of Phoenix; Danny (Allyse) Keith of Gilbert; eight great-grandchildren: Brooklee Finch, Brinley Finch, Rylie Muder, Kinlee King, Kinadee King, Kannon Keith, Kardon Keith and Tyler Muder.
Along with his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by his three brothers: Lester Eugene Keith, Larry Gene Keith and Alfred "Poley" Keith.
The public viewing and friends calling will be from 6-8 p.m. Friday, March 9, at Owens Livingston Mortuary - White Mountain Chapel, 320 N. 9th Street in Show Low. Funeral services will begin 10 a.m. Saturday, March 10, 2018 at the Love Lake Chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 700 E. Love Lake Road in Taylor, where additional visitation will begin one hour prior. The concluding service and interment will immediately follow at the Pinedale Cemetery in Pinedale, where he will be laid to rest alongside his forever sweetheart, Phyllis.
The Keith and Muder families are thankful for all of the expressions of sympathy and are especially grateful for all of the prayers offered up on their behalf. They also extend a special "thank you" to the caring and competent staff of Hospice Compassus who took such loving and gentle care of Johnnie for the last weeks of his life. Their dedication to their father and grandfather will always be remembered.
Today Shelley posted Johnnie's Obituary. It made me sad. I can't believe he is gone. I will try tomorrow to get it posted on this blog.
Gracie and I went to Idaho Falls to the Preparedness Store and pick up some Kamut for Kathy, Ruth and me.
Then we went to CosmoProf to get a little hair dryer and a brush for Gracie's hair. I needed a really small hair dryer for traveling.
Now it's time to go home and pack.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for the Gospel in my life. It is the very center of my being. It makes me happy and keeps me grounded.

Family Pictures

 Science Fun


 Bailee Ready for Family Pictures

Gracie May

I spent the day catching up on my blog and sorting pictures and putting them in file folders. I need to be better about doing this everyday. 
Gracie went to a Science place to do hands on projects. Amy and her kids came and picked Gracie up this morning to take her. She really had so much fun. She loves doing things with Amy and her kids. She has learned so much going to preschool at Amy's.
Janna took the family do take family pictures. I can't wait to see them. It was a fantastic day and very relaxing. I didn't even think about dinner.
Harley took the kitten's from the barn to get fixed and now they are in my laundry room in a crate recuperating. 
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for the ability I have to keep this blog and print it out to become my journal. Blessed!!

Relief Society Birthday Celebration

 Gracie's New Boots

 Gracie at Broulim's

 Snow, Snow, Snow

Connie and Kathy

Gracie and I went to Broulim's today to get a few groceries and find something easy for dinner. I am going to the Relief Society Birthday Celebration and I am picking up a lady I visit teach and my team teacher Connie. It was really good and all about finding joy in our everyday life. Pretty good.
They served Hawaiian Hay Stacks. They were really good.
We had a pretty snow storm before I left with huge flakes. It was so pretty. It stopped before I left but after we were ready to go to the car it came back. We were covered in snowflakes. I love this kind of snow.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for Relief Society. What a wonderful program that Heavenly Father has created for me.
