Happy day

This is just a quick blog wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day. I had a surprisingly good weekend. David’s brothers came to visit, but David put them to work hauling a whole lot of trash on the deck and in the shed to the dump.
While they were gone I put together a scrapbook page with 4X6 photos that I really like, so I will be sending it in to the current CK book call.
They also ended up moving their sister’s ex-husband out of his new-wife’s house. Apparently that marriage didn’t work out either. Big surprise. I am a bit taken aback that they chose to move him out, because he left to marry this chick and treated their sister very badly. But she asked them to help them, so they did.
Anyway, since they had a truck, we asked them to take us to a part of the Great Salt Lake Beach we can see from the freeway but have never been able to drive there because we didn’t have a truck.
The water was alive with brine shrimp, which made L very happy. DH and A spent a lot of time skipping rocks, or trying too, and DH nephew climbed the rocks. The brothers didn’t seem so thrilled with the excursion. But they were probably a little tuckered from moving their ex-brother-in-laws furniture up three flights of stairs.
I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Great gifts, I was taken out to dinner by my family, and I took a nap.
I was under the impression that I had to teach in church today, but when I called the RS president she told me I didn’t have to teach until next week, which was a lovely bonus gift. DH and I did have to say the prayers in Sacrament meeting, but that is a small thing, really.
Then I spent the evening watching the Survivor final. Booo! Terry so should have won it all. But I knew he was in trouble when he won the car.
I’ll be posting at some point in the future with more details about the gifts of the day.
But I must say the cloud hanging over my head most of the week has been dispelled. I love my guys.

A trip to the edge of a body of water will do that for a person - dispell the gloom. That's one of the beauties of nature - what it offers our soul. I'm so glad you were able to take a side trip. You so deserve that.

I'm glad you had a good day. Gordon cooked dinner, and I stayed home from the guilt fest at church. A great day.
