The date was lots of fun, junking in Salt Lake with Grandma, where we hit four different thrift stores ...
I worked on Wednesday and Thursday, and Dad worked on getting an application into the State Historic Society for a tax rebate for putting on a new roof, which we will be having done this summer. This is a picture that he sent in to them
Also, on Thursday, Dad stopped by and saw Grandpa, who looks like he thinks he's pirate in this picture. Actually Dad said he was quite subdued that day.
On Friday I spent more time painting furniture, and finished up a green wood rocking bench I had found last week at D.I. Its turned out super cute.
Then on Saturday I was off to work. Dad worked around the house, painting the window frame of the kitchen window in our new accent color, which will match the new black roof we are putting on..
That afternoon he had the priesthood leadership meeting for our Stake Conference, then there was a dinner for the High Council and their wives ... I worked until 6, but managed to get there at 6:20, just as they finished up serving ... wearing a dress to work helped. Then we attended the adult session of our conference, sitting by Trevor and Nell's friends the Bartholomews, who we enjoyed chatting with. We normally go with the Kews, but Steve blew out his knee this week. Getting old really stinks.
After dinner I finally cleared the dining room mantel of its Easter decor and put up some bright chintzware that will look good until I decide to do something patriotic in the summer. So that was our slow week. I did get to read a book I enjoyed ... and of course Stake Conference is always good, so again the high light for me was my Grandma date on Monday. I am thinking I am going to start doing these regularly, starting with grands that are 3 and a half or four. That means I can have a highlight every Monday!
P.S., it was fun to see a video on Face Book of Reagan walking!! Now we just have to wait for MeKenna ... :-)
