No pictures this time. Just some thoughts. I am sitting here looking out my window to watch spring time arrive finally. The wind is blowing though, but that is a normal spring time thing here in southeast Idaho. Some clouds in the sky and maybe a thought of rain. But it would just be a thought, nothing serious. No matter how much moisture we get, we can always use more. This country is called a high mountain desert. And at times, it is dry like the desert. Temps have really warmed up and that sure is nice after all the cold that we had so far this year.

This last Sunday I did something that I have never done before. I got up before the whole church and spoke for a few seconds. For Sacrament Meeting, the bishop changed it some. Instead of speakers, after the Sacrament, we were to request our favorite hymns, with the reason we like it and then everyone would sing the hymn. Well, I just happened to be the last one. Although I have lots of favorite hymns, I finally settled on Battle Hymn of the Republic. Now you ask why that one. Well, it was written during a dark time in our history and it helped with moral. And at this dark time in our history, I see it as hope that things will get better.

It definitely wasn't easy getting up to speak, but I did it.

I have this feeling that our summer is gonna be HOT and long. Don't like it that way, but it is shaping up to be that way. So I have come up with an idea. And hopefully I can stick to it. We have such a nice deck and pretty yard, I may spend more time out there in the evenings after it cools down. Now that I have wi-fi in the house, I could carry my laptop out doors and do some things out there on the computer. Would be better than sitting here in the house. Will see how it pans out.

More later.
