Every morning we have companion scripture study at 6:45. I’m already showered and dressed in my shirt and tie. Reading the Book of Mormon is a good way to start the day. After scriptures, we pray and have breakfast—waffles with buttermilk syrup, my favorite. Then I make my sack lunch.

On Monday it was really busy at the bishops’ storehouse. We were flooded with so many patrons, the service missionaries were called up from the warehouse to serve patrons in the store. Patrons always come first—that’s what we need to remember. When patrons need to be served, we drop what we’re doing and go help them. I’m looking forward to getting certified to use the forklift. I have to take a course in Salt Lake which I’ll probably do in May.

My grandfather (I call him Papi) and I cut up some dead trees with a chain saw and loaded them in the Toyota to take to the green compost dump. It was hot and sweaty work. We came home really dirty.

On Wednesday after work I pulled weeds for a sister in our ward. It was getting dark and I was only half finished, but I scheduled a day to finish up next week.

Friday is P-day and apartment check. I passed! Papi and I went to our ward “Fathers and Sons” activity in Midway. It was held on the property of a brother in our ward who has horses. It was really fun up there.
