What to blog about...

I'm trying to be a diligent blogger. So sometimes my entries might be fluffy and not interesting/entertaining.

So today I spoke in sacrament meeting. It was a good talk, if I do say so myself. And I do. Some great, magnificent, good-looking friends and family came to listen. That was nice of them. It's always good to look up and see familiar faces (might I add faces that aren't trying to make you laugh.... Damian). The topic I was assigned to talk about was tithing. But let's be honest, who drives 4 hours and wants to hear about tithing? So I talked about my mission.

After the block of meetings, we went to my house and ate food. Lots and lots of food. I love food. We had meatballs, and little sandwiches, and a veggie platter (lots from the garden!), and strawberry jell-o salad (the most divine food ever), and apples and caramel dip (apples from our tree), and pumpkin chocolate cookies (pumpkin from our garden), and apple crisp (also made with apples from our tree).

It was a great weekend. I feel bad for mom. She always stresses out about these things. Now she has a cold. No bueno.

Thanks for reading!

Oh look! Another random picture from my mission!

Home again, home again, jiggidy jog.

Greetings to the person (people?!) who read(s) my blog!

Guess what?

I have successfully completed my two years of service for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I served in the Washington DC North mission which covers DC and surrounding Maryland. And now I'm back in good ol' Southern Utah.

My greatest desire is to post the thousands of photos I took on my mission, but I won't.
However, you can expect some photos from my mission in future posts. The photos might be relevant. Or they might not. We'll see how it goes.

I'm excited for the adventures that lie ahead as I continue to power through LIFE. One bowl at a time.

Oh look! A random picture from the mission! Dinner at Elder & Sister Sowby's. L to R: Elder and Sister Sowby (in mirror), Sister Lewis, Elder Krugman, me, and Sister Otieno. August 2011
