It's Strange How Life Happens

Today I attended church in Orderville because my cousin who recently returned from his mission was speaking. Our families were really close. We grew up right next door to each other. I often say we were like one big family that lived in two houses. I have always thought of him as my little brother. I have been thinking a lot lately about the fact that he is now a return missionary. This is really going to give away my age but he was a third grader when I was a senior! The reason I remember that is because I was an Elementary aid for his class that year. I now have been thinking of girls that I could set him up with. Well he is coming to town tomorrow (Monday) and I had the great idea of making him come to my singles ward family home evening. He seems excited. Well this is where I decided it gets strange. He was in third grade when I was a senior and now he is hanging out with me in a singles ward. What?

I have been thinking a lot lately about how much I love fall! I love the smells, the temperature, and the colors. I love being able to wear my hooded sweatshirts, I have a lot of them.
I remember playing in the leaves at my grandma's house when I was little. I really don't remember them being so scratchy back then.
This isn't the greatest picture I realize but I love the colors up on the "C" mountain. I wish my camera would have taken it better.

My Dad loved pinenuts and every time I smell them roasting it reminds me of him and the fall. I love them too! He always just bought them. A couple years ago was the first time that I had gone out and gathered them myself. My step dad took my Mom and I. He took us again this last Thursday. I have to say that it is a lot of fun! I love being out in the crisp fall air. It is kind of a tedious little job picking the pinenuts off the ground, and not to mention how sore my legs are after crouching or kneeling for so long. But in the end it is worth it because the pinenuts are delicious and I didn't have to pay for them. We found a lot, as you can tell. What a wonderful time of year!

Mr. Perfect

I know you were all hoping I was announcing something but I am not. I just have yet another funny story from my nine year old nephew.
I was at my sister's house several weeks ago and I said something jokingly about how her and I never had guy issues with each other. Of course we didn't, we are eight years apart. My brother-in-law spoke up and said, "Yes you have, you are jealous because you are still looking for Mr. Perfect and she has already found him." Well I half teasingly said "If you are Mr. Perfect then I will stay single." That is when the nine year old said "I was going to say Dad, you are not really Aunt Lisa's type. You are pretty country and she is more, well city." I thought it was so funny! Number 1 I had no idea that the nine year old would even know about "type". I'm not sure I am exactly "city" but other than that he is right!
