Going Grocery Shopping

Ethel and her magnets around her ankles.

Heading for Arizona

 Every thing is so green.

 Jacob's Lake

I left early and headed for Utah. Everyone else went home to Utah. It was a good drive. I took a slight wrong turn and ended up taking the alternate 86. But it was beautiful drive and this was at the top of the mountains I was in. I had to take a potty break and they had bathrooms. Yay!
I proceeded on to Flagstaff and then down to Gilbert. I was glad to get to Ethel's house. It was good to see my cousin.
Grateful Statement: I was so thankful for God's beautiful creations. All the was through these mountain roads I thought how beautiful they were.

Beautiful Sabbath

We went to church in St George and Sacrament was wonderful. Good speakers and the Spirit was strong. I love to go to other wards. It's always the same plan just with different people.
We came home from church and heated up leftovers. We really eat good when we do these weekends.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for these friends of mine that go to church with me. We share so much of the same beliefs. It's so comfortable to be with her.

Scrapping in St. George

 Judy never gets out of work.

 Here's our scrapping table.

Group Picture. (That doesn't look at all like me)

Judy and I arrived Safe and sound. We had fun talking and talking and talking. We have been friends for a long time. She is so sweet.
Gerri and Heather were the next to show up. Then Lori and Heidi came and finally Megan and Cali. I love this bunch of ladies. We have so much fun. Pages to come to prove that I did do something.

Going to Utah to Pick up Judy

 Rest Stop

 My favorite place to stop.

I love the little stream that runs through it.

I got up and finished packing for my three week vacation. I am so excited to get to St. George to scrap. I am going to Dean and Amie's to spend the night and then it's on St. George with Judy.
It was a wonderful drive and I had a great time just driving along listening to music.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for the protection I recieve from Heavenly Father in all my travels. I know He loves me and knows me. What a blessing to have that knowledge.

Kathy, Kristen and Kids are Here

Camden and Gracie had so much fun on the Tramp.

 It's a Winco train if Aiden is around.

 Here we  are Celebrating Austin's Birthday.

Gracie is helping Austin open his present.

Kathy came to visit and stayed a week. We had tons of fun shopping, talking and just having fun. Gracie loved having Camden to play with. 
Kristen is a diabetic and she went low. I had never seen someone go into convulsions from low sugar. Kathy gave her a shot and she was better after about 1/2 hour. She has had this since she was a teenager. I feel bad that she had to cope with this all the time.
I really enjoyed being with Kathy. We always are so comfortable with each other.
Grateful Statement: I am so grateful for my best friend. Heavenly Father was so kind to put her in my life. We are truly soulmates.

Doctor Visits

I got up and fasted so I could get blood work done and my meds. The doctor gave me 3 months for a prescription so I won't run out again. He didn't want to do a blood test until I have been back on my meds for 6 weeks. So I will be going back.
Then I had Harley watch Gracie so I could go to the Cardiologist with Tommy. He seems to be doing well. They want to increase the Heart medication but if they do his blood pressure may go too low so they are working with his meds to get a bigger dose. What a merry go round this is.
I came home and started making Taco Soup. I made a big batch for the Grace House and a small batch for us.
I also canned my 25 lbs of rice and put it in my storage. I love these Case Lot Sales.
Grateful Statement: I am so glad for food storage. It brings me peace to know I am somewhat prepared. I am blessed!

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 ...
