a week ago, i went visiting teaching, and my partner is a photographer, and took some pictures. this family (of the little girl i'm holding - who wears cute little girl glasses) is moving soon... the ward is very sad:
WE GOT FURNITURE!!!... which you know, because it's yours. THANK YOU thank you THANK you!!! we have never been more comfortable in our lives! and now, our living room is my favorite - a beautiful burnt orange and gold. i love even just looking at it.
that night, we all lounged and watched about four movies together:
margie can't decide which couch to pick as her spot because she loves all the furniture too much. she's doing really well being gentle on the furniture too.
phineas is in love with the orange loveseats and hiding underneath the big couch - just like our old cats used to do:
everybody enjoys a comfy nap now!
here's an awesome photo of me and jon; i don't know what happened to his face; maybe he had a disease that day:
and this was a day when i ate a big burrito. i look so fat!

yesterday, to spoil us both for father's day, jon practiced his Iron Chef gourmet skills... he boiled rice in chicken stock, marinated shrimp in an asian barbeque sauce he made up, grilled the shrimp on metal skewers over our gas stove, made little hearts out of the rice, topped with the shrimp, drizzled with the sauce reduction, and lightened it all up with cucumber shreds around the edges. it was sooooooooooooooooooooo delicious:
later, he made, from scratch, organic/free-trade hot-lava brownies (perfect gooey brownies with melty pieces of chocolate chunks in the middle oozing out heavenly).
he still insults himself that he can't cook or bake.
i beg to differ.
Hope you have fun in Mississippi! say "hey" to everyone for me!
