In the Mood

Just haven't been in the mood to blog lately. Probably because I feel like I have everything and nothing to say all at the same time.

Some funny things James has said lately that I want to remember:
"Well, Heavenly Father wants you to be naked with the door open." After I stepped out of the shower and found the front door wide open.
"Mom, why is that lady in a wheelbarrow?" After noticing a woman in a wheelchair at the store.

Our lives have been pretty boring lately. I think we will know this week about THE job we have been waiting for for the last eight months.

I got most of the garden planted--corn, tomatoes, peppers (variety), green beans, and carrots. I still need to plant some pumpkins, cilantro, and basil. We'll see how it all turns out.

We also broke down and bought a trampoline. It was such a good deal we couldn't turn it down. The added entertainment for James has been nice plus it feels good knowing he's getting some exercise and enjoying the outdoors.

I am loving this weather. I wish it could be like this every day. I'm not anxious for the inevitable hot weather.

We Have Been OUT and Loving Spring!

I love these photos from the temple grounds. James has been asking me since last spring when the big flowers will be back. They're back and in full glory!
We also enjoyed a lovely hike up Table Rock. We made it about half way before we decided to head back. James loved it. He jibber-jabbered the entire hike, leading the way with his awesome stick that he found. He was totally in his element. Ruby insisted on pulling her toy dog the entire way. It was pretty funny because she would get really angry due to the dog constantly falling over on the uneven terrain.
We took a walk on the greenbelt last week just as the spectacular thunderstorm was rolling in. The sky was amazing, the lightning was fantastic, and the thunder was powerful. We made it back to the car just as the first huge drops began to fall. It was a great night.

Emily Dickinson

Spring is the Period
Express from God.
Among the other seasons
Himself abide,

But during March and April
None stir abroad
Without a cordial interview
With God.
