Saturday, December 17, 2016 – Clean Stake Center, Clean Home, Snow
Bright and early we completed our assignment to clean the Stake Center. Our Zone has the assignment all month and we’ve enjoyed the opportunity and the blessings that come with it.
When we got home it was more cleaning for Sis. Johnson and I. Tomorrow evening we are hosting our District meeting and dinner so we have to get our home ship-shape for the guests. In addition to the cleaning, Sis. Johnson made one of those Christmas centerpieces I mentioned yesterday. This one will sit in the middle of our dining table for the District dinner.
We were glad we did our shopping in Keokuk, IA yesterday. There hasn’t been much snow but there has been enough sleet and rain/snow mix that the roads are a little slippery. It’s been nice to actually have a “Day Off” and not have anywhere to go. Today has been a wonderful, relaxing day. We needed it.
I did have to make one quick trip to the Nauvoo Market for some items we will need for tomorrow’s District dinner. The market is only 3 blocks from our house so I didn’t have any difficulty with the ice on the roads. One of the things I needed to buy was “Deicing Salt” for our sidewalk. Being a desert dweller my whole life, this is the first time I’ve had to purchase deicing salt. Chalk up another new experience for our Nauvoo Mission.
