9 July 2012
so ive heard it is really hot everywhere, but on our way to the library our car thermometer hit 113. making july 9th 2012 the hottest day of my life. at least its not humid and i dont have to ride my bike :)
lots happened this week! first and foremost, i finally finished the book of mormon! it is highlighted out the wazoo and it is great. hopefully i never lose that thing! my current plan is to read one page a day from the BoM and then work thru the New testament and really highlighting that up. when i finish the new testament i will power through the remaining pages of the Bom and if all goes as planed i'll have finished both by the end of the year :) the scriptures are an incredible gift and the more we read them the more useful they are! obviously :P
friday morning i woke up and my knee was hurting, like there would be a big bruise there in a few days. well, there isn't a bruise but it sure did something! throughout the day on friday my knee just got bigger and bigger! like really big! and it hurt! soooo, we went to a knee dr in the ward and he gave me a prescription for an antibiotic and told my to come to his office in the morning and he would drain my knee. well by morning, thanks to a bunch of advil, the swelling had gone down enough we didnt have to drain it (we were kinda disappointed, we were looking forward to seeing it get drained lol) anyway, im not sure why my knee swelled up, i cant remember hurting it at all. its still pretty swollen and pink, so im still taking the antibiotic and the advil, but i think its getting better.
i hiked up a mountain today without too much trouble. we all hiked up lone mountain today and studied our scriptures and sang hymns at the top, it was cool! then we climbed down, made breakfast, and played games. i played ladder ball/lasso golf. its not as fun as corn hole, but still pretty fun. i do miss corn hole! and football! *sigh*
and then work here is getting better! we're definitely on our way up :) elder parker is keeping me on track
my new favorite verse for the week is one the elder parker and i keep repeating over and over again. its psalms 118:24 "today is the day which the Lord has made, and we will rejoice and be glad in it" :)
i like it a lot! whatever is going on, its what we have, and its a gift! so lets rejoice in it :)
have a wonderful week :)
