Today we have nothing on the schedule! No where to go, no one to see . . . refreshing to say the least. We do have a lot we can get done around the house, including mounds of laundry. Three sets of our bedding as a result of 2 baby barfs on our sheets and Princess getting a midnight nosebleed on Thursday. Yuck. I was once able to get all our laundry done on Tuesdays and Fridays, and I hope one day to return to that lovely state of laundry bliss. This constant always-having-a-load-to-deal-with thing makes me nuts.

Tuesday my husband and I finish up our final Family History Center directorship duties, by assisting the new directors at their first quarterly meeting. I am feeling sad about this calling coming to an end. We've been serving in the FHC for more than ten years, one or both of us, in one position or another. It has been about 5 years that we have worked together as the directors of the center. It will certainly give us more time to do our own genealogy research, which will be fun, but we will miss assisting in the direction that the FHC takes and the camaraderie we've felt with those we've worked with. As of yet, we have no official new callings, so that feels a little odd too. Not that I am complaining--everyone can use a break now and then!

My husband finished my quote database today and it is even more awesome than I anticipated! Hurray! I am so grateful for my computer tech husband and the time he spends on my less-than-technical behalf. Every time I add a quote, I'll think happy thoughts of him:

When eating a fruit, think of the person who planted the tree.

-Vietnamese saying

He also installed my new recipe software, so we'll see how it works this coming week. I tried a bunch of freeware ones and they were worse than useless, so I finally shelled out the dough to get one that is supposed to work! I wanted something that would let me search on an ingredient and give me a list of the recipes I have that will use that ingredient, and I am so excited to try this out!

Nice to "meet" you, Lara! I love your photos and hope to try that cookie recipe with the cranberries.

By the way, I love Mastercook! I entered in all my favorite recipes, then created a cookbook just of recipes to try. It's great because you can easily import those from cooking blogs and other favorite internet sites!
