Finished Product...

My ward Relief Society had an activity on Thursday night to put together these temple pictures. We didn't have a Salt Lake Temple picture in our house yet & hadn't found one we really loved. So I signed up and now we have a beautiful temple on our wall.

The long story:
The church activity was only supposed to take 2 hours tops. I didn't get home till around 11pm. There was a lot of sitting around & waiting for things to dry or staple guns to become available, etc. As I was retouching the paint, I saw that the top edge showed part of the particle board margin. That would not do at all. I ended up taking all the staples out of the backing yesterday & had Brian help me restaple & hang the picture.

Luckily, it was worth all the effort. It is so nice to have this symbol in our home. This will help remind us of the eternal perspective & what this life is really all about.

What Happened to Spring?

I think it's officially time to break down, pack the car, and head to the beach! I'm done with this stuff. I have 2 new pairs of capris that have not been thoroughly broken into yet, but I have nowhere to go! Sad. I guess this weather does make my pathophysiology & pharmacology class easier to focus on. If the weather were nice, I'd be outta here with Lily in tow. (Last Friday we escaped on an afternoon excursion. The fresh air was exhilarating!)

Until the Easter Bunny brings us some good weather, this is the general feeling around our house.
