Dog Days of Summer
I have been replaced as my dog's best friend by a monkey. She found the stuffed toy a few weeks ago and hasn't left it alone since. Including carrying it to my bed and getting caught snuggling with it (more than once).
In other news...
I had a great time at the singles conference in DC this weekend. Somehow I managed to only take one picture the whole weekend-
But back to the conference.
It was a lot of fun and very well-planned. There were around 5 or 6 girls for every guy. Great odds for the guys, not so much for the girls. But the singles program in the LDS Church is much more than a dating service (click the link for my Meridian Magazine column on that subject). It is meant to serve the spiritual needs of the singles as well. And for me that means the opportunity to be around other like-minded individuals who are in similar walks of life.
I loved being back around DC where it is normal to hear people talking about their upcoming moves to Baghdad and Jerusalem, a trip to China, or talking about a business trip to Egypt. And everybody has an interesting job. I miss such "normal" behavior!
I admit I did meet a few interesting guys. And I met a few TOO interesting guys, if you know what I mean. I met several lovely ladies for potential friendships as well.
All in all, a great weekend. I did bring home a little memoir of the trip as well- a yucky nasty cough. I lost my voice somewhere along the way as well. Let's hope I find it before I go off to Girls Camp next week!
Stay tuned for tomorrow's big "Brazilian Blow Out Reveal!"
I found this at the Veterans Cemetery today. Someone has placed the same kind of rock, and a penny, along with a small ribbon and flag pin, on every headstone. Any ideas what that means? What does the rock and penny mean? I debated that maybe the rock is just anchor to hold the ribbon on each stone. But seems odd too just by the way it was placed. Any ideas? #WWI #veteransmemorial #cemeteryfinds
