New Calling, again

So, for the new YSA ward, I have, once again, been called to play the piano. this time, i also have the choice of doing organ. I am the ward Organist/Pianest, who gets to play in sacrament meeting, and also it sounds like i've been unofficially asked to play for the ward choir.

watching the storm

normally, i'm used to seeing rain from a distance.  this time, i was watching it snow on the mountians

Monday, October 25, 2010


as you can see, no it isn't much.  But, it is the first snow of the year.  Its the first "first snow" i've seen in a long time.  the last time i saw some, was in Clarksville, Tennessee.  and that was clear in 2009!  It was good to see some snow again

Salt Lake Temple

We had regional conference down at the conference center today.  I took this picture on the way back to the car.  Sorry its dark, it was rainy, but i didn't have time to change the settings, my family was leaving me and being impatient.

Making Mimi Dolls

Mimi's are Australian Spirits who live in rocks.  some are nice and help people learn to make fire, and hunt Kangaroo.  some were mean, and ate people.  I had one kid who refused to make one until i told him that they can be tricksters :).
i heard this song on the radio yesterday.  :)

Fall colors

These were found in the garden. I don't know what kind they are. But they're pretty.

culture night

i decided that if i ever have the chance to be able to learn a traditional dance of some sort, than this mexican dancing would be cool to learn.  even though i'm not even close to mexican, and i don't know a word of spanish besides "hola!"

for bonjean, this is right outside the library (yep, in magna).

yes, this carrot really is as big around as my hand.  we also pulled out about 4 others, just as big.  i don't know how it happened.

picturesque neighbourhood

this is a neighbourhood, right outside my work.  i've always thought it was such a cute little neighbourhood.  who would guess that at the intersection, its a super busy, downtown feel :)

"Road Haus"

I've long wondered what this building is.  It was there four years ago when i last worked where I work now.  it almost looks like an auto shop, but i'm honestly not sure.
and, another song for today.  sorry about so many this week.

I got a rocket for Dante and I to hopefully play with while he's off track.  It takes a couple extra items we should be able to get soon, and then go have fun with it
another song here, though when i first heard it i though "you know, it was more the farmer's son, than daughter"

Tuesday, October 5, 2010


today was somewhat of an uninspiring day, after an uninspiring converstaion in the morning with a good friend.  I did hear this song on this radio and enjoyed it.

Since I now work nights, and mom would still like me to make one meal a week, I'm learning the art of crock-potting.  I have a pile of about 20 books i'm looking for for ideas (though others would always be welcome).  tonight was the first time i tried it.  it didn't turn out too bad
