Thursday, February 23, 2017 – Cold and Rainy, Transplanting Seedlings, Sis. Cluff, The Service Missionaries
What a difference a day makes in the weather of Illinois. Yesterday was warm and sunny and today was cold and rainy. Yesterday’s high was in the 60’s and today was in the 40’s. It’s supposed to be below freezing by tomorrow morning.
Again today Sis. Johnson and I transplanted Gomphrena seedlings from their trays to the 72 cell trays. Then we transplanted Gaillardia, followed by Dusty Miller seedlings. I think we will be doing this for quite some time to come. There is so much to do in the greenhouses to get all of the plants ready for the spring planting.
Sis. Johnson and I got to perform “George & Agatha” at tonight’s Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo show. We are getting better at it, our timing’s better with less nerves.
At tonight’s show of Rendezvous in Old Nauvoo we had a visit from our good friend, Sis. Cluff. Her official release date from the mission is tomorrow. It was good to visit with her one last time before she leaves for home. Her son Benjamin was with her at the show tonight. He has come to Nauvoo to be Sis. Cluff’s traveling companion on her trip home. All single Senior sisters are required to have a traveling companion on their trip to and from the mission field.
Also at tonight’s show were the 5 young service missionaries we occasionally get to work with at FM. It was good to have them at Rendezvous tonight, they were a good audience.
