Scriptures

We had a great home evening lesson tonight on the scriptures. Alyssa shared how she has been able to better connect with the scriptures on a daily basis and I was just thinking recently how I’m doing my daily reading, but not always getting much out of it. I tend to have a hard time focusing and I think I need to spend more time pondering after reading. Maybe if I wasn’t so rushed to get the reading done and get on with the morning it would go better. Alyssa said that she started underlining different parts in different colors. I’ve never been one much for marking things in the scriptures, but maybe I need to try this out and see what I can learn. Maybe I just need to go back to writing about what I read like I was doing at BYUI.

I worked a full day today, and didn’t even leave the office till almost 5:30. We got wrapped up in meetings and such at the end of my day. Things were kind of slow, but good. I tried to spend some time clearing out some things that had been sitting around and finding my desk again. I need to get ready to take on the extra load from Tara being gone when she leaves for Boston on Wednesday.

I got some more entries into familysearch tonight after getting through the mail and other junk. I emailed my dad to see what info he already has so I don’t spend time trying to duplicate work that has already been done. It sounds like a lot of the stuff is hard copy, so I may have to make a trip down there to see what I can find.

I talked with Geoff tonight briefly about moving in. It sounds like he is really just looking for a quiet place to crash which is what I’m looking for as well! I need to ponder on it and come up with the house rules so we are all set from the get go and get him moving in.

Well, I think I’m going to try and get some sleep early here so maybe I can get up on time tomorrow and not be so rushed for my scripture reading. Good night to all!

Wicked is Leaving LA

From the Wicked News today:

TICK TOCK! THE CLOCK OF THE TIME DRAGON SAYS THAT
THIS IS THE FINAL SUMMER FOR WICKED IN LOS ANGELES!

Yes, Fellow Ozians, the Time Dragon has brought to our attention that this is the final summer to see WICKED at the Pantages Theatre before it flies off to the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. The Los Angeles production of WICKED will play its final performance on January 11, 2009, ending its record-breaking run at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. Upon closing, the production will have played 791 performances and 12 previews. The WICKED company will then travel to San Francisco beginning performances later that month at the Orpheum Theatre.

Producer Marc Platt states, “WICKED has been one of the biggest hits in Los Angeles theatre history and we are thrilled that theatergoers here have embraced the musical and welcomed us so heartily. Our run at the Pantages has been a joy for the entire company and will place WICKED alongside only two other shows in recent memory that have successfully called Los Angeles home for an extended stay – The Lion King and The Phantom of the Opera.”
