there's nothing worse than spending lunch with a bunch of old married women and one single guy who just got engaged. he likes to ask everyone for advice on proposing, ring buying, and now it's honeymoon planning. makes me sick. and for a bit i had a crush on him. well that's gone. now i'm just plain jealous and feeling oldmaidish. especially when no one likes my honeymoon suggestions. today they said i'm too bohemian. not sure what that means. i was all for going on a cruise. how is that bohemian? he's the dork who doesn't want to spend more than 8 or 9 hundred dollars. cheapwad.

So it's a bit cold here. The ice cicles coat everything. My poor rose bushes are draped in them. Under the weight of ice they bend over.


there's gold in the northern hills of slc. at least yesterday i saw it. shining so bright in big chunks i was convinced i could touch it from my car on 7th east. after breaking at 13th south i looked again and the gold was gone. it had merely been the setting sun reflecting on the oversized windows of the oversized homes in the federal heights neighborhood. after a week of inversion and biting cold, that gold had been most inviting. too bad it was so fleeting.

Yep I had a holiday today. I would have liked to ski but i'm suffering from a cold, besides we're having subarctic temperatures lately. Instead a took a road trip to logan with my parents. My little sister lives in wellsville, a couple miles outside logan. They have 9 wards in wellsville - even have their own tabernacle. But they have no library. The post office may be the only "business" in town. Anyway, logan is just a few miles away so we went there for lunch. We dined at the coppermill. This is a photo of alicia standing in front of a sign by the entrance to the coppermill. I took the photo because one of my brother's nicknames is "rj hunt" - like on the sign. Pretty cool we thought.


it seems i haven't had a lot of good stories to share lately. nor good photos. luckily, my siblings share photos in their weekly letters. this one is so perfectly peaceful and since plewe seems to like temple shots i decided to share this one that my brother took outside my mother's kitchen window. it makes winter/snow/cold not seem so horrible.

I found this stuck to the towels in my bathroom cupboard. Where could it have come from? Very very very odd.

more niece

this cracked me up. she's learning to dress herself. apparently she could only get so far before deciding she needed a play break.

We all have them and generally throw them around to others. At least I do. So do my siblings. Well, some anyway. My brother Stephen has had more than my brother Ron has had warts - we're talking near 50. Anyway, I think I just got a new one tonight. I was talking to Mitch (short for Michener which is a variation of his real name, Marshall) and when he said goodbye he called me "Harry" - or "Hairy" - he was not specific - but I think it was the first. For many years he's called me "Sarah O'Hara" after that great TV show that starred Mr. Miagi from "Karate Kid" - what's his name? Pat something. Anyway, I think it's now morphed to just plain "Harry."


You can't tell - but it's beautiful. My house faces north so this is the best view I have (out my kitchen window) - sad for me. I went to the front porch all bundled up to watch it before realizing it was the wrong angle. I'm just happy to be up. I ate the best aotmeal, started my wash, skimmed through the ensign (being reminded that marriage is the best), and still have time to blog before heading out for some rigorous schlecking for day!

The park

While in the park the other day I came across this piece of trash - a page from some magazine. It's will smith. His head is just smiling out at all the passersby. He's a happy guy. It's just a floating piece of trash offering a bright moment to anyone who cares to notice.


Look at me. I'm watching football. It's in overtime. I'm still here. I have to get up at 5 to go to the gym before work. Who have I become? I think it's just a fluke in the space time continum (s?).
