this is the quilt i’ll be making (although i’ll be doing a different version but essentially the squares are the same).
work: Today, I was a commuter in the Salt Lake Valley. Oi! Going to the Sandy Clinic was such a great experience! I’m so grateful for the opportunity to observe so many awesome clinician’s during my “training” period. There are so many things I am excited to incorporate into my own practice as an SLP.
learning: Today also marked me doing the URLEND+AE program “official.” I’m really excited, a little nervous to embark on this 2 year post-grad fellowship but it will be so good. Its amazing all the people I’ve just happened to meet to make this happen, and who will help to make it a success!
family: Tonight the parents went out on a date, aw. So it was me and C and C for the evening. LB wanted to ‘finish her own stuff’ (aka making necklaces, because she is the most thoughtful kind soul ever), Craig was watching wagon train, and I was…doing nothing (my brain is reaching its capacity, i swear). Well, then I hear someone go outside and soon, there was Christin with Ruby all leashed up, knocking on my window, ready for a walk. So off the three of us go…Christin in one hand, Ruby in the other. I’m sure we were quite the sight, and we got some great looks (story of my life). And I just relished in every moment. For so long I thought living at home was so bad, but it is so good! I get to come home to this! And so, tonight as we walked, I really felt like it was one of those ‘perfect moments’ to be filed away into the permanent happy thoughts file in my brain. (And Ruby is the best dog ever! Story of the dog not on a leash, dog comes running up, Ruby of course, got her mohawk, but as soon as I said, “Rubes” she twirled in a circle, and came and sat at my foot, still attentive on the runaway dog, but sitting and being obedient. High praise for the pup!)
talent development: i may have signed up for a quilt square group. yes that means that starting next month, every second saturday i will be at sew and save, taking in my made up square and getting the pieces for a new square to have done by the next second saturday. thankfully i have the best mom and neighbor to teach me the tricks.
gospel studies: i’ve been stuck on the same chapter and verse all week. I start the chapter over again, only to end up at the same place, pondering and pondering and pondering.
“I will give away all my sins to know thee…” (Book of Mormon, Alma)
right? It just makes me think, reflect, and ponder change and repentance. Intentional change. Intentional repentance.
mission: President 2 got home earlier this month. Roadtrip this weekend to his homecoming with fellow sisters. I’m super excited about it! As I talked to one of my companions the other night, I couldn’t help but think about how I am so grateful for the experience of a mission for a million different reasons.
