just an update

This weekend was great.

FRIDAY

we were able to get those elusive couch and loveseat, you guessed it from craigslist.com. Nice leather country blue and the couch reclines on each end. I guess the name is namebrand. Which I really don't know much about Natuzzi. . . like Mark says "I'm going to lay on the Natuzzi and take a snoozie." It is so nice. And a steal of a price. Just very pleasing to the eye, and comfortable!

SATURDAY

It usually goes by way, way to fast. We woke up kinda late and went to the farmers market just down the street, for some much needed fresh produce, since we don't have mom and dad's garden. We got a few things that were experimental. Like a banana squash that is larger than Sarah, a big sucker, but the "farmer" said you just cut off what you are going to use saran wrap the end and it will store all winter. We got an Armenian cucumber, it was very large also. We sampled it and tasted like a cucumber, so I bought one of those. There again BIG. about the size of my arm. Then corn, good 'ol corn, gave some to our neighbors, they told us about the market, and also have shared a pleanty with us. And a box of mix and match fruit like peaches, pluots, pears, apples, and the like for 10.00! That was a steal! And I know this last one you are going to laugh, but we bought some zuchhini. Just a few mind you, but they were CHEAP, and we are hankering for a little BBQ zuchini. Came home and ate produce. I put some squash and potatoes in the crockpot for Sunday dinner, well needless to say we loved the banana squash and potatoes there wasn't enough for dinner.

Cleaned out the van, man it was GROSS, traveling and etc. in it was yucky. Filled er up with gas, and went to Costco to get some essentials.

Came home, cut Mark's hair, since he has a dress code that says he needs hair above his ears. He was kinda shocked when he went to get his ID and there was a guy with a scruffy face that they wouldn't take his picture. Realized he needed to read what he was suppose to uphold. (Like he's a rebel and doesn't dress appropriately)

Went to the mall to see where Mark has a display to sell his custom knives and also to be the "knife sharpener" for the store. He had to learn how to sharpen a samuri sword. . . hmmm, I was amazed, no time and it was sharp.

SUNDAY

We went to regional conf. where Pres. Monson, and Elder. Wirthlin spoke, I loved every minute of Elder Wirthlin's talk. I really feel like I can just keep trudging forward. I really related to his talk.

Pres. Monson talked kinda off the cuff. It was so different hearing him be carasmatic and funny. We were definately NOT at general conf.

Took naps, and then went to the provo temple. Man, I love our Spokane temple, but there is a difference in the bigger temples. It is just amazing how much different a fountain makes. There were a lot of people doing the same thing we were, taking picts. of the beautiful grounds. You know the MTC is right there and there were missionaries doing their picture taking. It was interesting.

Us as a family are doing as well as could be expected. I don't wish to be where we were a week ago, but still would much rather be in Spokane. so, we are adjusting ok. We are going throught the motions in some cases, but getting to spend a whole lot of time together as a family which I LOVE!!!

Check in with you later.

How totally awesome amy, thanks for sharing. Sounds like you're having many wonderful experiences. I took a snoozie on our floor-zie yesterday and I don't think it was the same.
