Nice Saturday

A letter in the mail to my missionary.

Took a bunch of household hazardous waste from our garage cleaning last week to the transfer station.

Helped Tom a bit recovering things they had installed in the house they lost that they want to use in the place they live now.

A little bit of household chores. (not enough)

Made pig-in-a-blanket slices for the ward activity.

Great ward activity - "Proud to Be An American" Dance and Game Night. Tom DJ-ed - always a winner. People brought good refreshments. The pasta salad with chicken, cucumbers and currants or raisins was incredible. Lots of other good food, too. Good games. Good visiting. The Dance and Game Night format almost always works (as long as we have the best DJ in town!) And it so easy to do. Holly steps it up by including active group games as well as board games. And it doesn't hurt that Ruth and Tom, and also Rod and Nathalie can really dance! It is a total delight to watch them. A couple of other couples and the little kids are cute to watch, too - more for their joy and enthusiasm than for their ability and fancy steps. I like how husbands make sure they dance "The Last Dance" with their wives. Sweet. I also like how people just pitch in and help with clean-up afterward so that it goes quickly and smoothly.

And now to sleep in my comfy bed in my own home. Good stuff.

  1. I love good ward activities. There is never enough time on Sundays to socialize properly. I look forward to the socials. We haven't had one in a while again....but we are coming up on the 4th of July Annual Pancake Breakfast and Car Show. So, I won't complain too loudly. LOL.
