Woot! had a good sale on these, and we jumped on it.  This is something I've been wanting to get for quite a while, and am now super excited to have one :)

a couple weeks back, I posted a picture of the street, where they were taking down all the houses. Instead of building apartments like we thought they were supposed to be doing, they covered it all in grass.  We are kind of confused about why.

I felt pretty good getting 51 completes tonight, in about almost 5 hours, (total time was 4:40), and wanted to share it. This is one of the best competes/hour that I've ended with on this project.

Empire Builder

This is a new game we've started playing at Game night every Sunday. Its kind of fun. I've been told it is like Ticket to Ride (though I've never played it, so I have no idea). You build train tracks, and take shipments from certain places to different places and get paid for it.

This is looking up the hill to the temple in Rexburg. Normally, you can see it just fine. today? barely see it. This is from all the smoke in the air.

This windsock has been nearly horizontal to the ground almost all day.

Back at it

Our ward organist has moved. this leaves two of us in the ward who can play the organ. The other girl who had been playing is on a trip these next two weeks, which means I get to go back at it. My carefully guarded secret that I could play (I really didn't want to be stuck back at the organ for another long while) is now out in the open.

This cute little guy kept running around while I was waiting outside for Drew to join me for lunch

No Sidewalk

More of the construction happening around Rexburg, and specifically around our house. I don't know if you can see the construction stuff at the top of the street, but that's how far this sidewalk isn't there any more. It took out our normal route to campus, so we get to go on a more roundabout route now.

Jury Duty

I had jury duty today. I had been even chosen to be one of the first initial jurors. Unfortunately, after all the questions, one of the attorneys decided that he didn't like me, and I didn't get to stay for the whole thing. I was kind of disappointed. It would have been a free day off work for an interesting cause.

New Plant

The Relief Society came by and gave the girls plants (I guess, i was at work when it happened). This is great timing, as the plant we had had shriveled up and died.

I went out with some old bread and fed the (already really fat and overfed) ducks today. I really liked how this one looked, all mottled brown.

This waterfall had a couple of different terraces. 
It was by the campsite we were staying at.

My family was close by, so we joined them for one night of camping.

Local Traffic only

The road here is completely gone, and the machines seem to be taking up the whole road. I feel sorry for the residents who live on this street, and wonder how they can get cars in and out, since the machinery does seem to take up the whole road. but no wonder our air is so dusty, what with all the construction going on EVERY where!
