|Me and Julie|
|Julie and John at Ruby's Diner|
|Julie - we sat and talked in Balboa Park|
I did have a fun treat this week - my dear friend from high school - Julie Doolittle and her husband were here on business and we were able to spend several hours together on Thursday. We met them for hamburgers at Ruby's Diner and then Julie and I were able to catch up for a couple hours after without the men to disturb our talking!
Our little scripture study class was in our apartment again this week. I really do love it when they come here instead of us having to go out. It was nice to have the sweet spirit of the class here in our home. The group was small - only five of us but it was nice to be able to talk more intimately and answer questions better. There is a nice bond between us all in the group and I will miss these people when we are done.
|Institute forum lunch|
We were able to get away on Friday and go visit the kids at the La Jolla Institute for their Friday Forum. Each Friday the secretary there at the Institute fixes a great meal for all of the students and then they have a little spiritual meeting. It costs the kids a whopping $3 and it is the best deal in town. Sister Watts goes all out and it has alway been wonderful. She has the kids help her with the meal so that they can learn how to cook along the way. She made her own hamburger rolls, crock pot shredded pork, a wonderful grilled vegetable dish with sweet potatoes in it, a great salad, sliced apples with a dip and then a yummy fudgy dessert. It was great to interact with the students. Roger even got in a few ping pong games before we had to take off and get back to work. We miss being there with the students.

|Setting up for a wedding!|
We were hurried off at the end because they were getting ready for a wedding and needed us out of there! What a beautiful place for a wedding. You can see the chairs that they have set up for the wedding in this picture. Pretty cool huh?
|This is what I am getting next time! Butternut|
squash with grilled cheese sandwich. Yumm!
Well off and running to another week. We have some fun things tomorrow. Roger's friend from his childhood, Don and his wife Cheryl will be coming in to see their kids that live here in San Diego and we have invited them to come for dinner here and then we are going to go to a fireside. Alex Boye is in town and has been doing youth dances the last few nights and then will be giving a fireside tomorrow night. We are excited to hear him and be with the Elms.
