I tried take two on the blueberry muffins this morning. I cooked them at a lower temperature and checked on them every few minutes. The bottoms were still a bit overdone and the tops weren’t toasty yet, so I need to work on calibrating this oven definitely.
Church went well. David and I got some home teaching assignments fixed, so I feel like we are making progress there slowly but surely. Austin had a great talk today on testimonies. He shared some great stories to illustrate points from his mission. I really need to start taking notes or something because I can never seem to remember many of the details – or maybe I’m just too tired by this time of night.
Sister Dowden made some great french fries tonight. I’m sure the seasoning helped, but she did a great job frying nonetheless.
President Clegg touched on this during his instruction today (5th Sunday) and it was also the topic for branch prayer tonight. We talked about appropriate things to do on the Sabbath. The short answer is still whatever brings you closer to the Lord. This is one of those things that you must take in stages. I think a good answer to the question of if something should be acceptable to do on Sunday is it depends on what you would do with that time instead of the activity. If turning off the TV means you’re going to spend more time with friends and family, then yes. If the TV is keeping you from getting into bigger trouble then go for it. I keep thinking that I want to develop more missionary or activation type things to do on Sunday to better use my time, but seem to always fall short of implementation.
Carla made me go and get my camera at branch prayer tonight and then it seemed to be the night for people to talk about cameras. President Clegg is apparently looking to buy into the good stuff and Noelle seemed interested as well. PC also told the Skagg’s that I’m getting married in two weeks. This is news to me and I’m somewhat interested in who the unlucky lady is. He was talking about one of his nephews getting married last week, then a niece this next week and then he said Scott was getting married the following week. I figured he was referring to some other Scott, but learned quickly that he wasn’t. I guess we’ll see how this arranged marriage thing works.
