Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty average. Aside from having the occasional play date, it was pretty much the normal activities. Yesterday Paul did go to a video games/electronics convention with friends and had a pretty great time while Joseph and I held down the fort. We did notice that the momma bird from last spring has come back to inspect her nest (glad I was too lazy to remove it). I had no idea she’d be back, but Paul said that Phoebies are one of the types that will often come back to previous nests. It would be cool to have more baby birds this spring. The “yummy food adventures” has to do with a couple of new recipes that I tried out this past week. I’ve found quite a few repeatable recipes (meaning we like the food enough to make it again) in my new cookbook and consequently we’ve been having some pretty yummy food. Oh, and Paul took the Honda to a local mechanic (he lives in our neighborhood and has a shop nearby) to try and figure out why it was so smelly…lo and behold, the gas tank was cracked, so that will be getting replaced and we’ll no longer have a smelly car and garage…yay!
The Weekly Weather: We had a few cold days which have been followed by some downright warm ones. Today’s high (as well as tomorrow’s) is supposed to be in the 80s. I guess Mother Nature forgot that it’s winter. Though, it won’t stay like this for long. We’re supposed to have another front coming through that will cool it down again.
What Paul’s Been Up To: Other than work and school, not too much. One big thing is that he was released from the Sunday School presidency and was called to be the Assistant Scout Master for our ward’s scout troop.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’m back in the swing with students, visiting teaching stuff is choo-chooing along as usual, and I’ve started choir practice back up.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: TONS of imaginative play, playing with friends, and showing that he’s got quite the brain in his noggin. The other day, he asked if he could play Paul’s old DS. I told him he could play it for as long as I was in the shower. Without missing a beat, he told me to make sure I took a really, really long shower. Little smartie-pants!
