On Nov 9 we went to Aunt Karen's for games and a cook out. The afternoon started out with Brigham changing light bulbs so we could see to play.
We played Phase 10 for a while, but there were too many people, so I spent a few hands coaching some of the younger kids & eating my dinner. Besides playing and eating, there was chatting and visiting as always.
On Saturday Oct 26 I took the opportunity to go to Mesa for the day. My 1st stop was the Mesa Temple to get Temple Ready Cards to get Dad's temple work done. After I left the temple I headed over to Latter Day Cottage Books for a book signing. Carolyn Adams Hanchett introduced her new book THE BLOG PART 2. (I have read it since that day and highly recommend it- a review will be on my other blog soon.)
I had a good time visiting with Carolyn for a couple of hours.
The other author there was Jacque Wick author of A TO Z COOKBOOK FOR KIDS. She set up outside so she wasn't as readily available to chat with. All in all it was a fun afternoon.
On Oct 8 Changing Hands Bookstore hosted a book signing with Ann Romney, for her new book The Romney Family Table. It was a different kind of book signing than I have ever been too. There were long lines, and a ticket was required to be in the line. Mrs. Romney spent about 20 seconds signing each book and talking to each person. I'm used to less organized book signings where you walk in and visit.
Despite the differences it was a fun experience to meet Ann Romney,
Welcome to my blog. The thoughts and opinions here are strictly my own.My parents signed me up for my 1st book club before I was born. I have always loved books and reading.The 1st LDS Fiction I read was Added Upon by Nephi Anderson when I was 10. At the time it was the very best LDS Fiction had to offer. It has greatly improved over the past few years. I read as much as I can in my spare time.I grew up in Massachusetts, went to High School at Algonquin Regional High School, and college at Utah State University.I have lived in Michigan, Massachusetts & Utah.I currently live in Phoenix, AZ where I work full time as a Patient Care Advocate, and I make ties to order in my spare time.If you see a tie you would like to order, or need something special for an occasion contact me at Primarymary2@gmail.com. Please keep in mind, I made all of my ties in cotton, and have to be tied. They can be made in many different sizes up to Adult, but please check for fabric availability.
