Made a huge pan of corn chowder. I love good soup.
Visited my son's classroom and talked about being an author. The children were attentive, respectful and curious. Joe looked so proud of me that I almost choked up. It was so much fun.
Melted down twelve pounds of white chocolate and made Bountiful temple candies for my nephew's wedding dinner and reception. Congratulations Richard and Haley.
Wrote two blog postings and three letters.
Re-wrote thirty pages of my book.
Ran eight miles (not in a row and not very fast).
Watched The Amazing Race, most of Project Runway, Pioneer Woman, most of The Sing-Off and part of The X-Factor. I had to turn away during part of The X-Factor. I find the judges so nauseating that I almost threw up a little.
Gasped when it snowed. It's too early to be snowing. I want Autumn to last for three months, like it does on the calendar.
Watched Elder Holland's Priesthood session talk with my family. It made up for not being able to see him speak during the sessions I watched.
Pinned some recipes that look mouthwatering on my Pinterest Boards. If only I could make them as easily and inexpensively as I pin them.
Laughed at several golfers out my back window who lost their ball in the water and still spent way too long hunting for it in the water's edge. Sometimes I holler back there and tell them their ball went in the water. This time I just watched and laughed.
Turned the heat on. As I sat and wrote, my fingers and nose were freezing. I can layer with sweaters and jackets and hats, but I can't type with my hands in gloves and I can't see when a scarf is wrapped around my nose. I had to give in.
Felt: joyful when I got Bruce's letter, excited when Veronica got her "yes" response to Sadie's, happy when I saw Savannah's excitement about her guitar lesson, disappointed that I missed Joe's spectacular football game, thrilled when our friend Skyler went into the MTC, proud at parent/teacher conferences, annoyed when I heard about junk my husband deals with at work, and thankful every night that my family was safe and accounted for.
