Getting back to normal

Yesterday was a pretty good day. The reason? Well, things are coming together in our home. I MADE dinner last night. It wasn't a frozen meal, it wasn't anything that I had bought already done. I made it. It was so nice. And I made guacamole. My guacamole is just so yummy. It's like you can't stop eating it.

Yesterday I found some really pretty flowers at Walmart that were super cheap. It's just nice to have fresh flowers in your house. I would have taken a picture, but my camera is currently unavailable. (ok, it's really lost somewhere, but, I'm sure I'll find it once I get more things put away in here.)

Last week, an old missionary friend contacted me and said that he would be in the area, and of course I said he could come by. I haven't seen him since he came to my wedding reception or when I went to his sisters. He stayed for about two hours. We looked through my mission scrapbook, laughed about old stories, and caught up. I almost felt 9 years younger.:)

And, the big thing that happened yesterday, was that a neighbor came to our door with treats!!! This lady lives two doors down, and she saw us come home from church on Sunday. And, she is actually in our ward! I've never seen her at church, from what I can remember, but like I mentioned before, this ward is so so huge, you could live here for a year and not be able to get to know everyone. The really exciting thing is that she has a trampoline. Yay!!!! Andrew was so excited to be invited over to jump he could hardly stand it! So, today we're going to our neighbors house to jump. Andrew just asked if we could have lunch for breakfast so that we could go over to our friends house sooner.:) Sadly, it just doesn't work that way.

And, the sun was out yesterday. And a little bit warm. Having the sun out always does good things for me. Although it's killing our grass. It actually hasn't really rained for a few weeks. And I keep forgetting to buy a sprinkler. Sigh. Must get that done today. As a kid, my dad would spend hours outside watering our grass. I always wondered why. Well, one reason is that there was 8 of us in a very small house, and things got a little crazy in there sometimes. Another reason is that he just likes having a nice looking lawn. Which is what we're trying to accomplish, but we'll see how well that goes. Neither Matt or I are big on yard work. But we're trying!

I also started making Christmas presents last night. We'll see what the finished product looks like.

So, a pretty good day. And the sun is out this morning. It's looking like it'll be another good one. Yay!!

I sure miss our huge trampoline. And camping out on it at night.

We haven't had fresh flowers for a while...I forget what simple joy they can bring!

And yeah for sunshine!
