Well Tyler and Janelle's baby is almost here. Went into labour last night so any time so the little one should be making its appearance. Mom and Dad are out there ready to make phone calls once he/she gets here. :-)
This was a great long weekend. First, Saturday, I attended the Special Assembly Day again. It was quite a bit bigger than the one I visited a few weeks ago - 700 people - so had to sit in the cafeteria. The speaker was Clayton Hansen. He was a really good speaker and I noticed he focused on Canadian experiences. That was unique because even though it is nice to know what is going on around the world - it is also nice to hear what is happening right here in Canada too. I really liked a couple points he made. One being that even though the governments of even the super power nations right now do have the best of intentions, but the reason they can't succeed is because brings in legislation to improve government laws and policies to improve life for people - the governments can't legislate peoples morals and ethics...and that is why life is deteriorating world-wide. Lots of food for thought.
Yesterday, as a massive Kingdom Hall work bee. We had a fantastic turnout of about 75% of the congregation. My raking partner was Lauren. She is studying French. And I am studying Spanish, and doing my Chinese lessons too. The company where I am studying my Spanish also gave me free Chinese lessons, so I thought "why not??" There are both language groups in the territory so why not try to learn both. Anyway, it was great that Lauren and I could work together because she was able teach me French words and phrases and I could teach her Spanish and Chinese ones. So excellent morning there, and then hung around the house doing stuff in the afternoon. And now TODAY...the actual holiday I have a laundry list of things i want to get done around here. Starting by curling this mop of hair on top of my head and then going to put all my summer stuff into storage to make room for all my over-sized winter clothing. Lots to do!
Okay, everyone have a wonderful day yourselves. Harvey and Pearl need a good scratch on the head so gotta run and get than done with too. :-) ....oh ya and that cute little cuz of theirs Otto too.
Love to all,
