Look what I found!

This year I had a goal to read all of my Relief Society Lessons before our class on Sunday. I want to be able to participate in the lesson. And I know there is not enough time to cover everything in the lesson, so I didn't want to miss out on some of it. But good intentions don't really give me enough time to do everything I want to do. I only was able to get a few of the lessons read before class. But then I discovered the solution! So I thought I'd share it with you. I found on the website that they have our lesson manual available in all kinds of formats for us to use. Lessons I used the MP3 format and listened to the lesson while I did my work at home! So now I plan on keeping up with my "reading" while I am doing dishes or laundry. An I a genius or what!

I think I can probably do that with my scripture "reading" at times too. All the scriptures are available in audio form too. Scriptures and other Publications I suppose if I owned an Ipod I could put them on that too.

I know for me, reading the actual book is way better than just hearing it while I am working. So I still will do my best to make time for actual scripture study. But in the meantime, I can listen to the scriptures, and my lessons on my way too busy times at home.

A Weekend Badly Needed

Happy Independence Day everyone. It's one of my favorite holidays. And who doesn't like fireworks? I just love them. Sometimes we can just sit on our roof and watch them from one end of the valley to the other. Travis and I are going to go and see fireworks tomorrow night.

I don't really have a lot to say right now. I am excited to make some goat's milk soap this weekend! Bryan's friend has goats. They gave me a whole gallon of fresh goat milk! It's home in the freezer getting all ready for me to make a beautiful batch of creamy bubbly fun when I finally get a minute. I'm thinking of Oatmeal and Honey soap. Mmmmm. Or maybe a nice Sandalwood soap.
