Cannes boats

Here’s the view from my hotel window in Cannes, France one day in 2002.  I wouldn’t mind having one of them there yachits.  Part of my famous Machinery series.

Lonely day.  LRN1 left for Young Women camp this morning.  LRN2 and I are here all alone tonight.  How sad.  We had a nice dinner of beanie weenies (don’t laugh – they were tasty) and went swimming  and jacuzzifying for home evening.  Then we came inside, got changed, and had a nice big bowl of ice cream.  Now we’re fiddling around with our computers.  So were lonely but having a fairly nice time.  We sincerely hope LRN4’s having a great time too.

The weekend was enjoyable, but a bust as far as my to-do list was concerned.  I did get the pond filter cleaned and my talk written, but that was about it.  Went to six hours of church (two wards – the one where I spoke and my own) and made two home teaching visits and went to dance instruction and the youth dance on Saturday evening and stayed incredible busy otherwise.  No complaints.  I think I’ll have plenty of time to do my hobby stuff this coming weekend, it being an off Friday and all.

LRN2’s been keeping himself busy with drawing today.  I’m really looking forward to seeing his website come up.  We still need to work on getting it ready.  Maybe Friday!

Got some work done today.  We all received an email from our program manager this afternoon, informing us that we were going to be receiving a monetary reward for the missile shootdown event we achieved in February either this week or next.  He of course didn’t mention how much, so now I’m dying to know.  LRN2 thinks it’ll be ten million dollars.  I doubt it some, but I’d certainly accept it.  I’m thinking more like a few hundred bucks, about half of which will be withheld in taxes.  I’ll either buy something pretty for myself (a couple of books, maybe – or even an iPhone 4 if it’s enough money!) or use it to pay bills.  Probably should do the latter.  Might not, though.

Heard from LRN1 this afternoon, as usual.  He’s doing pretty well – still struggling with the companion relationship a bit.  He’s doing his best and I’m positive things will work together for his good.  This is great experience and it sounds like he’s having the time of his life.

And it’s way past bedtime already.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife employment opportunity: fire-watching gorilla!

See you tomorrow.

    Again, a “Why?!” question: Why was that man dressed as a gorilla?

    Ours is not to reason why. Neither is his, apparently.
