to settle an upset stomach

use a combination of ginger ale (the ginger settles the stomach) and beef broth (the broth helps to keep you hydrated, and delivers some of the salts that could potentially be getting lost, and it just plain tastes good)
also, i've had this song going through my head all day, and wanted to share

finally finished

when I cleaned out the closet the other day, I found this unfinished in there.  I thought it had gotten lost and gone forever about 5 years ago.  I've been slowly working on it ever sense, and its finally finished
now i just have to figure out something to do with it

New Calling

Today was my first official day back in primary.  Although I had some misgivings about going back into primary (even though I saw it coming) because I was actually enjoying going to relief society, I enjoyed myself, and over all will have a good time with this calling.

Old Granny activities

Mom and Dante came home from school one day, and Dante saw me crocheting and told me I shouldn't be doing that, because its an "old Granny" thing, and I'm not an old granny :)

Jed and Danielle

One of my mission companions got married today.  It was good to see her after about a year and a half of not seeing her.  I also got to see a few other companions and sisters from my mission.  It was good to see them all.

The bus routes

For the first time since my mission, I used UTA.  It was still just as easy as i remembered it before.

I've always been facinated by mushrooms growing out of old dead trees.  It made me happier than it should have to find this just in my back yard.

Cleaning the closet

I spent most of the morning (and into the afternoon) working on cleaning the closet, and de-junking it.  it was a lot harder than i thought it would be.
Also, for your stargazing pleasure this thursday and friday nights (meaning after midnight, in the wee morning hours) is a sweet meteor shower.  fore more details on it, go here

We went to the mall today, and I had to ask "where are we?"  it was so different from what I grew up with.  It has Waterfeatures!!  it never had waterfeatures before.  D and I went and played in them a bit too, which was a lot of fun

The Jungle, AKA the Garden

I've had this song on my mind a lot the last couple days.  So maybe "home" isn't West Virginia, but I'd like a country road to take me "home"

Uno hand

My parents got a new game of Uno while on vacation this year.  This was the first hand I got dealt.  I wish we had been playing stackable draws, I could have done quite well.
