Day 13 – Rest

  This is going to be a shorter entry today. Diana and Jaden both have colds. We did not attend church as a result and just rested all day. I did some work in the backyard and cleaned up the garage a little bit. It was not because I had to or it was on…

Day 5 – New Challenges

My weekend started out with a bike ride with Dave, a friend of mine who lives in Bakersfield. We were going to leave my house by 630 AM, drive up to Springville, and ride on one of my circuits I have there. We didn’t leave till a little past 7 AM due to road construction…

Moving In

This weekend was spent getting the guest room changed out with Diana’s furniture. We started by moving some of the wedding gifts into their appropriate places, i.e. dishes went into the kitchen. After some reorganizing and cleaning, we were then able to put the room back together. The bed was placed in the center of…
