Sunday, August 14, 2022: Church / made brownies / Melissa called / FHE at M&M’s
KENSINGTON, Maryland — President Russell M. Nelson and his counselors in the First Presidency, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring, participated in the rededication of the renovated Washington D.C. Temple on Sunday, Aug. 14.
Picked up Bette for Church. Speakers were youngest Dahl girl, the Roger Dupaix and Jeanne Bostwick . . . all spoke on “repentance.” The subject was meaningful for me because I had just reprimanded myself for forgetting how to be more reverent during sacrament meeting . . . I was totally distracted watching the young deacons passing the sacrament with seemingly no sense of method or direction.
Sister Fletcher directed our discussion of Elder Soares’s Conference talk. It is a meaningful talk about our establishing awe of our Savior.
As soon as I got home, I changed out of my church clothes and made a batch of brownies to take to FHE. Mark & Angie picked me up at 5:00. What wonderful gathering! There was a spirit of comraderie and fun! Present were /Angie, Mark, Dallin & Clara, Lauren & Chad (hey, where was Levi?), Matt & Mary, Emma, Adam, Sam, Gabe, Noah. Asley & Tanner Tew with Carson, Lily and Ambrie, John & Aubrey, Oliver, Lincoln, Nixon, Stephanie, Kevin & Janell, Rylan, Asher, Tyce, Lana, Mark & Chanelle, Coco, Rush!!! Andy was in Alaska, Camie was In St. George with Damon checking in for his freshman year at Dixie – Utah Tech?
Dinner was taco/taco salad – my brownie were yummy and eaten but Janell had made wo delicious cakes – Kentucky butter cake with whipped cream and berries and a scrumptious coconut cake!
We watched the beautiful video made at Ashley’s wedding. Kids played outside – made-up game “walking down the street.” Boys still are able to have fun anywhere!!!
Emma engaged me in a confidential conversation about love and religion. It was lengthy and sincere. I was touched by her willingness to share her thoughts with me. She and Logan have re-kindled their romance after a year and a half.
Steph asked me to be Lily’s “companion” tomorrow until Steph returns after school. I was excited to have the opportunity!
Monday, August 15, 2022I must coninue tomorrow!

Saturday, August 13, 2022: Happy 43rd Birthday, Aubrey!
I had very little on my to-do-list today and fulfilled that goal admirably!!!!! Comfy day. . . . made Aubrey’s card, watched TV (went from Newsmax, Extraordinary Attorney Woo, It’s Okay to Not be Okay Death in Paradise, Vera, Broadchurch).
Steph made herself available to be Lily’s companion and then helped Angela organize school plans, too.

Friday, August 12, 2022: YEA! My driver’s license has been renewed!
I kept busy throughout the morning, then left for the Driver License Department at 2:30, giving me 50 minutes to get there by my 3:20 appointment. The lights were in my favor the entire distance, so I was way early. But I parked and went in with just 2 people in the line in front of me. I was finished and back in my car at 3:00 and stepping into my house at 3:30. My new photo is hideous and the signature is atrocious!!! Oh, well. I was happy to have it all behind me.
Cindy Simmons called and we had a fun visit – she caught Covid in July and is just now feeling better. We’ll find a time for our next temple date soon.
