melted blue otterpops

Random, I know.

Today I discovered a melted blue otterpop balanced precariously near my African drum. It is the second melted blue otterpop I have found there this week. Curious, don't you think? As luck would have it, both times the culprit who abandoned the blue otterpops left them at a slightly upward tilt. So, due to that piece of luck (or common sense) and the magical cohesive properties of water, the blue-hued liquid sugar had stayed in the plastic.

Next time, I think I'll go for pink.

Early Thanksgiving

It's been such a nice week. I love my husband and my baby so much. Both of them have made my life nicer this week. I am so thankful for all the blessings the Lord has given me.

Weekly highlights include:
  • getting my little boy to laugh over and over again - I LOVE MY BABY'S GIGGLE
  • attending the temple together for the first time since Junior joined us - yes, this meant a babysitter - Thanks Jana!
  • getting our home more organized and less cluttered
  • setting up the crib with the cute boy sports bedding Grandma gave us - the first night was a bit rough, but last night he slept until 6:25 a.m.!!!
  • walking around the neighborhood in 55* - 65* sunshine
  • repotting my plants - the beautiful aglaeonema I saved from an untimely death a year ago is doing great
  • chatting with friends and eating yummy food at a Relief Socity get-together - Pedro is so good about watching the little guy
  • making what I call a Twix pie - basically Mrs. Pike's Boston Banoffee pie with melted chocolate on top in place of bananas - thanks for the recipe - I aspire to be as domesticly-talented as you

A prophet speaks with God then tells the truth

"Now we have a world where people are confused, if you don't believe it, go and watch the news. We can get direction all along our way, if we heed the prophets - follow what they say."

I recently read a few forums discussing marriage and whether physical intimacy before marriage is justifiable. Wow, there is a whole lot of confusion in this world.

Just for the record, I am so grateful for my personal witness of a living prophet who speaks with God then tells us what is right. I know that chastity before marriage is a divine principle. And, no matter what confusion is going on in this world, I know that God will bless those who keep His commandments.
