03 March 2016
The month of March is so welcomed. I have been hoping for a weather change and warmer days. So far no snow and the days are longer and warmer. We have had one horrific hail storm and heavy rain but no snow. (A tornado alert came with the storm).
The trees are budding out and we have one daffodil bloomed out. The tulips are all up and ready for business.
I have had my “night” game camera out getting photos of the local night life. Raccoon, bunnies, and deer eating off the lawn are all captured on my camera. I am hoping for skunks and opossum to frequent the back door of our apartment.
Dawn has a birthday this month and we have celebrated by going to “Women of Ireland” in Fairfield on St. Patrick’s day. It was a great performance of song, dance and aerobatics. We also had a wonderful meal at a Turkish restaurant.
Our group activities this month has included Bro. Wright, author of a book on the symbols of the temple. It was well done. We are looking forward to hearing from Reid Moon on rare church books.
Another guest speaker we are privileged to here is Susan Easton Black Durrant. She is a BYU professor of church history who is married to George Durrant and spends time here collecting information on church history. She is an outstanding speaker and very enjoyable to listen to.
We are starting to jog outside in the mornings if it is not too cold. If it is freezing we jog at Motley Gym.
We spent Easter Sunday in Galesburg and after church had dinner with the Dobsons. They have been very nice to us and we stay with them on occasion.
The geese are starting to pair up and we are seeing more and more game in the mornings. Hopefully it will become spring soon.
