Fiona and me in the snow

happy easter!

Happy Easter to all.

Six days until I leave for Little Rock, and then Oak Ridge. I'm not looking forward to the change, but I must go for the internship, and it's just another point in my life path, and it mus be done.

Easter Sunday 2007 was a pretty relaxing, yet pretty cool day. It was about 20 this morning when I got up and left for church, brrrrr. I didn't sleep too well due to the pain medications I was taking; for some odd reason if I take pain meds before bed, it makes me tired but I have really weird and restless dreams. So I woke up about 9:00 and got ready for church which starts at 10. Church was pretty neat. We had two people give thoughts, and the rest of the service was singing or playing of some kind of instrument (cello, piano, ...).

In my church, we do what is called Home Teaching. It's basically an outreach, where each of the males have a list of church members in their area. We go every month and teach these people lessons, and generally check on them and make sure they're ok. We do this in twos. So me and my home teaching companion (Remington) put together Easter baskets with candy and some other stuff in them, for all of our Home Teaching people and delivered them after church. Some of the people that we have were at church and they were very excited and surprised to get the unexpected gift and hello. Two of the others we drove to deliver their baskets weren't there, and we were able to deliver one to someone who was home. I really like the home teaching idea, mostly because it's a great way for us to keep in touch with people. If it's done right, people get help when they need it, or they even start coming back to church.

After delivering the baskets, this afternoon, I did my favorite Sunday activity, relaxation, and then went to some friends' (The Smiths) apartment for Easter dinner. We had some tasty chicken with parmazan cheese encrusted on it, vegetables, salad, and some tasty oatmeal cake (I'm getting the recipe for it :), got to accumulate lots of recipes so I won't have to have TV dinners all the time).

Been home making phone calls this evening, and catching up with my friends. Still working on having something to do this week, and I've got a couple of leds, who knows what will happen.

I'm not sure what I'll do tomorrow, but part of it will involve making sure that Housing knows what's going on as far as me leaving and setting up the time for when I'll be leaving. And that's abou it. Do some good with what Sunday you have left.
