Joel has been living one crazy schedule these days. It was nice to have him home to eat supper and sleep in his own bed this week. Friday night was opened and we have really not spent any time with John and Diane. Was happy their calendar was open too.
Beef Vegetable Soup and Dilly Bread
Joel made me this tray out of an old pallet.
"NEW" dessert plates to me. I got them at Good Will for.49 cents.
Just a few munchies during cards.

Today we were on a mission to find Joel's grandparents marker at the cemetery. We finally found it and then looked around Scottsdale for flowers. We put this nice arrangement together.
It was a Fond du Lac day in Phoenix. At the Brewers game we met up with our friend Paul from our former congregation who is in Arizona for vacation.
We headed to another Brewer game. We got our VIP parking and 2nd row tickets behind home plate from the member at Cross of Glory who is head of grounds crew. Joel had a JCM meeting with a pastor who was at the game. Then met someone who teaches at WLC and made another connection. They want to send students to 3rd world countries to do mission work.
Joel has a meeting tomorrow morning and then off to the airport. We hate to leave this amazing weather but we are looking forward to going home and for me to get back in my kitchen. I refuse to come home with long pants and enclosed shoes so have my sandals and caprices on.
Good Morning from Phoenix:
I have one picture from Sunday. There are no others because we headed back from Bishop CA and it was the same scenery. This was the cutest church, which was a house first, there were 6 pews on each side, there are 14 ladies, and 1 man in this congregation. The pastor and his wife have 3 boys and the average age was 70ish. Very loving people. Joel did not need a sound system while preaching here. They had a brunch/lunch for us and Joel did his presentation. Again, another group who is excited to start a JCM program.
We left at 12:30 and pulled into the hotel just before 10 a.m. We traveled 586 up and down the mountains. WOW !!!! I even drove part of the way coming down into the out skirts of LA. CRAZY!!!!!
We really don't know what time change we are on even though we are really trying to stay on central. Joel was up at 4:45 a.m. doing e-mails.
Today we are going to look for Grandpa and Grandma Harting's cemetery marker, Phil wants a flag shirt, we have a Brewer game with our VIP parking and free tickets again. Then two families from FDL are flying in today and we are having dinner with them. Then Joel talks to 2 circuits tomorrow and then early afternoon we head home.
I told Joel yesterday that I am ready to head home. It has been a great trip seeing God's creation in the West, meeting so many new people and spending time with Joel. My pictures do not even capture the beauty of those snow capped mountains.
Here is a picture of the church we were at yesterday.
