But now? Holy mackerel, you'd think Hurricane Sandy made her way to St. George. We got back late Saturday night, just in time to speak in church, teach Primary, give the lesson in Elder's Quorum, and head out to Gunlock to say goodbye to some friends.
Now I am furiously working my way through a mountain of smoky laundry while trying to pack up an entire house. Jason's back in New York until Friday and we close on the house a week from tomorrow so I'm pretty much on my own. The house is belching boxes (pardon the imagery), and I think Annika made an entire meal this afternoon out of leftover Cheerios she picked off the floor. And so, you'll have to forgive me if the blog gets put aside for a bit.
As a diversion, I thought I'd share some fun photos that I took all the way back at the beginning of September when our neighbors adopted an adorable shimapoo, Sparky.
|Karen, Annika, and Sparky. I think I already pointed out the puppy resemblance.|
|Would you believe that in the last two weeks I've had two more people tell me how Annika looked like a dog? I know that dog-lovers consider that a compliment, but I'm never quite sure how to respond.|
|Eli and Sparky.|
|Aw, such a sweet puppy. (And hypoallergenic too!)|
|Daniel and his new best friend.|
|Facing the world.|
|Daniel and Eli enjoy some male bonding time.|
|A happy day for this high school freshman, now taller than both Jason and his Mom.|
