I can tell Spring is coming soon
because the woodpecker has started pecking on our chimney pipe again.
Several times a day I hear a drumming rattling noise coming from the roof...
and that sound is the best indicator
that winter is almost over and Spring is just around the corner.
That there is a very confused
woodpecker up on our roof trying to make his nest in a iron pipe.
Good luck tragically mixed up little bird...
but try not to give yourself too big a headache.
One of our chickens laid the tiniest egg this week. Can you believe this? It is the size of a quarter.
We've gotten an egg this small one time before, but it was when our hens were young. We just figured it was someone's first try at laying an egg and that is why it was small.
This time though all our ladies are experienced egg layers and so I don't know why one laid this tiny egg. Asher really wants me to make him a small fried egg out of it!
She basically wrote the post that has been floating around in my head for the last few months.
I have been reading it and loving it. It is about the women that Christ interacted with and performed miracles for when He was on the earth. I will write a full review of it sometime soon but I just had to let you know about it. I LOVE it that there are so many women bearing their testimonies of all the amazing women in the scriptures!
Also, here is a great video by the authors talking about the book. It will get you excited to read it, I promise.
General Conference starts tomorrow woo hoo, woo hoo, woo hoo!
I love General Conference.
In the comments in my last post on ideas for LDS religious holiday's someone commented that General Conference is sort of an LDS holiday. I thought that was a really good observation. I know that to me it always feels like a holiday, and I remember in college it was something that people always "went home" for to be with their family if they could. I also know that lots of families have traditional foods and activities they do on General Conference weekend... so I think it is pretty accurate to call it a religious "holiday". And really... we are a young church, give us another 2,000+ years like the Catholics, Jews and Muslims have had and we might just have some pretty good religious/historical holidays going!
I hope you take advantage of the spiritual feast and have an awesome weekend!
