What a funny spring we are having. Not just here I understand but everywhere. Even Italy is still getting drenched even though Laura saw this just a few weeks ago....
This photo was taken in ancient Rome near the Forum where all the ruins are. It is a pretty brownish/stony looking (dead) place but look what came along to add some beauty! God is good!
Friends in Utah are waking up to snow still and friends in Texas are having cloudy overcast days. The thing here is one day it is nice and then we get three days of rain. Like a little chick trying peck its way out of an egg...we are working on it. Spring will come and stay eventually!
Last weekend we went to Oakland for our semi-annual stake conference and it was gorgeous over there. These photos are especially for Dorothy, a sweet lady that is missing her home in CA after relocating when her husband passed away, eleven years ago. I know she had probably visited Temple Hill many times and would like to have a vicarious visit today.
Our church has many temples throughout the world and we are so blessed to live quite close to one. Here is what the temple looked like last weekend. The temple grounds have a big auditorium for large meetings and performances and we often meet there when our stake (10 wards or congregations) are involved in a joint meeting. The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful and sit high atop a hill so the view is magnificent on a clear day.
Looking west toward San Francisco from Temple Hill.
This one is in the inner courtyard of the temple.
When I think of retiring with my hubby
I think of days filled with this...
thinking about places like this, being alone, with no
phones ringing and no big rush to get us anywhere
special at any particular time.
I know, I know, you are smiling and shaking your head...
I'll give you the real scoop when it actually comes to pass!
A girl can dream can't she??
