Sometimes Meryl will come to my desk and either play with my hair or give me a massage (especially when she wants me to do something for her, so she'll massage and I'll show her what I'm doing as I answer her question). Joan was jealous, so Meryl gave her a massage, too. She's a good friend.

It was SO cold and windy when I left work. Mom had gone home earlier so she could be ready to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical at the new Eccles Theatre, that meant I wasn't downstairs pulling her car up to her building for her, so I walked around on Temple Square to witness the tumultuous effects of the wind on the fountain water before it got too cold and I had to go in.

Joan decided to join our drink run! She usually goes before either Gen or I arrive at work.

Dresden wanted me to take his shoes off, which I did. Then he wanted me to take his socks off, which I did. Then he wanted me to roll his pant legs up, which I did. Then I reminded him that we were going to have ice cream for dessert. Here he is jumping up and down in excitement in his cute little bare feet and rolled up pants.

I went to Tianna's house so she could teach me how to use a silhouette, and also so she could show me what paper piece quilting looks like. I totally am ready to get into both! We ended up making two thank you cards, one for each girl. Kessa did her own, and I helped Abby put glue on the flowers and then she stuck them on.

Mom is TSM's office. I heard another new-to-me story about how President Hunter was the first to use the teleprompter, and in the middle of his talk, it shut off. He didn't have a backup copy, so he had to wait until it was working again. Ever since that event, even though it's never gone off again, every apostle who has spoken in Conference always carries a hard copy of his talk in his pocket.

Jenny called me when I was already at work saying she had an emergency dentist appointment (her filling fell out), and could I please come watch Dresden. I was all over that so fast! Dresden and I played cars, pretended to call people, pretended to drink lots and lots of milk, pretended to take naps (including tucking in nearby toy cars and stuffed animals), and, most of all, ran literal circles around the house.

Camille told us she couldn't join our drink run, but then we ran into her and Lori going over for a drink as we were heading back. Busted!

My practice block so I could see how stitches looked and then another attempt at binding -- which went way better than the first. It definitely helped my sewing confidence!

Since I'm terrified of using Jenny's table runner for my first try in machine quilting and binding, I decided to spend the weekend making a DIFFERENT table runner to practice on. I learned a few things, the binding didn't go as well as hoped, but at least now I feel way more confident in the process!

The morning drink run to the pharmacy is now just a thing Gen and I always do. I told her I wanted a picture of her adding flavor shots since for awhile, she would pump them and the liquid would go EVERYWHERE. It was hilarious. But she has perfected the system so it no longer does that.

Mom was speaking in her stake Relief Society meeting tonight, so I accompanied (drove) her. I love listening to her speak. I even heard some new stories I'd not heard before.

Finished table runner! Though it won't do any good as I'm not seeing Jenny tonight. I told her the top was done and I was going to do the bottom, and she told me to not finish it, but, instead, make it double-sided with a fall/Thanksgiving runner on the other side, so that's happening next.

Mom, Dad, and I attended the kids' Primary program. This one will be Ziggy's last!

Jenny's table runner is looking so cute! But will likely not actually be done in time for Halloween.

I was driving to the fabric store to get fabric to finish a table runner for Jenny when I noticed, at a stoplight, an entire field filled with Canadian geese. Horrible monster birds :)

Driving home from St. George. Uncle Dave told us to swing by his house to grab some squash, which we did. The squash was the same size as the kids!

Watching Finding Nemo between swimming, four-wheeling, "hiking" (just walking around rocks), and napping. His little hands under his chin kill me!

Another UEA weekend in Sand Hollow. Ziggy was trying to teach Dresden how to sneak up on people to scare them, so he was whispering secret strategies in Dresden's ear. The planning didn't go well :)

It was dark enough and I was to work early enough to catch the warm glow of lights in the CAB as they reflected off the fountain water.

Today is going well. I decided I wanted to eat breakfast on the floor in front of the space heater. That plan did not work out so much.

Giselle wanted to watch videos on YouTube, and ended up seeing one where someone played with dolls and made them talk to each other. I didn't actually watch it because it sounded stupid (and I was playing with Dresden), but Dad, Ziggy, and Jenny were all sucked in. For an embarrassingly long time.

Camille and I went for a walk, and she pointed out this marker is her dad's favorite spot because, "It's the center of the city, when it was first settled, and the center of where the word of God goes forth to all the world. It's from that point that God speaks to His children." She convinced me. I now love this city marker, too.

Gen and I got pulled over to the Conference Center to be extras in a training video. We basically walked down the Conference Center stairs a million times while a drone flew over filming us.

Gen, Camille, and I are now doing gummy walks -- where we get a bag of gummy candy, walk around Temple Square, and just talk about whatever.

Sarah, D'Nell, and I were supposed to go to a crafting class, but it got cancelled because of a tornado (because apparently that's a thing that can happen). Instead, they came to my house and we did the crafts ourselves. It's the best of all worlds, we had fun, we ate lots of treats, and we got a cute craft out of it!

President and Sister Elmer are in Salt Lake for Temple President Training. They wanted to have lunch with me! I haven't seen them in so long, it was great to catch up.

My favorite part of Halloween is pulling out the ornaments Brittney and Jenny's kids made me. I realized I've switched out my lamp this year because the bats no longer show through the lamp shade, I had to tape them on the outside. Still cute!

I drove to Provo so Allie and I could have dinner and go to The 39 Steps. She's one of my favorite theater friends! Actually, she's one my favorite people in general.

I stopped by Jenny's house to drop some stuff off that she needed/wanted. I got to play with Ziggy (who had finished his homework) and Dresden (who obviously doesn't have homework), while Giselle had to do her reading. She kept contorting into the weirdest positions. It was so cute!
