First I must apologize once again for being so absent from my blog! It has been a busy few weeks. But today I finally got a chance to rest and relax. This weekend was General Conference (check it out at www.lds.org) and for the first time I decided to try and test my hotspot to the max. The hotspot that my cell phone generates lets me use my computer at home, but I've only used it for small quick things until now. Today I streamed live video for four hours! Luckily I have an unlimited data plan. It worked like a dream! And it was so nice to listen to the conference talks in my own living room rather than get dressed up and go to the church.
It was such a gorgeous day and the conference talks were all wonderful. During the afternoon intermission, C and I went for a Sunday drive, and we came across this little church by the side of the road. C had seen it before and wanted to show it to me. I loved it! My favorite thing about it is the golden silhouette of Jesus on the door with the word "nondenominational" written across him. And I really like the artist's attempt at symmetry with the way the words are painted on.
We also took a nice walk through the woods near Falls Lake, where we saw so many trees beginning to bud, lizards and bugs coming out of hibernation, and a bright red biplane that flew so close to us we could have shaken the pilot's hand almost. We also saw horses galloping across a meadow. So, all in all a very nice day.
