Is Spring Here to Stay?

Wow!! The weather was outstanding yesterday! We had clear blue sky (which is very rare in Germany) and it reached 60 degrees. And to top it off, it was Saturday, so I could actually enjoy the warmth. Yes, a long walk around base was calling my name.  During my walk, I was thinking about the weather has such a big affect on my mood.  The warmth just does something for my soul.  I can hardly wait for Spring, Summer, and Fall to get here.
Later that afternoon, I attended the baptisms ofTaylor Dalke and Sarah Peterson, both children in our ward. These children have been anxiously awaiting their daddy's to come from Afghanistan for a two week break so they could get baptized.

Afterwards, I ran to Schwandorf to a flea market with a good friend, Janeen Nance. It had been going on for 3 hours before we got there. So by the time we arrived, they were starting to put things away for the day. I've never been a person to shop at yard sales because I never find anything, and today was no different. But maybe it was because things were very picked over by the time we got there. However, I had a great time learning some of the tricks of the trade from Janeen.  I also learned that if I want to buy some real crystal or hand blown glass, this is the place to find them for a very good deal. 



  1. I've been wanting to check out the flea markets. Good to know that I should arrive early. :)

  2. I agree that the weather can totally change your mood. We had a nice day here on Saturday as well and it made us all happy. I hope you are doing great! Tell Jared hello. and have a wonderful day!
