Awesome Day!

It was an awesome day today. I should have been decorating and cleaning the house for Christmas but I was having too much fun designing another project for UStamp with Dawn and Friends. It really turned out cute. Only one problem ... I set the project on the couch and ran to the store for a few minutes and when I came home, Dieter had destroyed the nylon flower that I had made and attached to the project, as well as eaten three of the pearls that were in the center of the flower. Holy Cow ... he's never done that before. I was certainly surprised. Oh well ... when he goes poop in the morning, hopefully he'll have a few pearls with it. Eewww ... that was gross! Sorry!

Cleaning the temple last night was one of the neatest experiences I've had. We dusted and vacuumed everything. There was a cleaning crew of about 20 in our group. We finished at midnight and got home around 12:45 a.m. and got to bed at 2:00 a.m. I was too wound up to sleep so worked on a cross word puzzle, read, and watched The Celtic Women sing on TV. Man, are they ever good! They're coming to Utah in May, I think, and I want to go hear them perform. I'd never heard of them until last night while watching a PBS show. Beautiful girls with beautiful voices and harmony.

It was such a beautiful sunny day today, but oh so very cold. I'm talking bone chillin' cold. I've got to decorate my porch tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to being out in the cold. I've got the heating pad on and tucked in my bed to warm up the covers while Lynn's away. Well, time for bed. Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite!

That nasty little dog/brother! You probably laughed and said, "Oh Dieter!! You're so silly!" :)

I remember when I was really really little and you were on a temple cleaning crew. You came home and told us all about it and how special/peaceful it was. I've never forgotten how I felt when you were telling us. Very warm. Thanks, Mom. Love you! And that stinker dog, too.

Hi Linda - I'm a member of UStamp and I loved your frosted container projects; they were beautiful! Also, I'm starting a new blog and i had a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. For the past 3 years I've been caring for my paralyzed mother and elder father and I'm hoping that this blog will help me deal with bad days. Since you care for your parents, I figured you'd understand. I couldn't find your email address, so my email address is: Thanks in advance for your help! Maria.
