MVY Week 3 FF

1.  This week I worked Saturday and Tuesday.  But I'm about to embark on a 5 day stretch starting today.  The last 2 days that I've worked have been rather busy and I'm told this is the busiest weekend on the island.  Let's hope for a good 5 day stretch.  I've met some very nice people in the ED and work with some of the best people.  We all get along so well.
2.  Sunday I got 2 callings; 1 to play the piano as they haven't had anyone able to play in 5 years and the other is to teach the 6, 7, 8 year olds in Primary.  I'm excited for this calling.  I haven't taught Primary since I was 18 and graduating from High School.
3.  Sunday I had dinner with some people in my ward including my new friend Melanie.  We had dinner at her house.  She has a pool which is heated and where I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time this summer.  It was fun to sit and chat with these people outside with a cool, dry temperatures and a little wind.
4.  Mr. J can't believe that I haven't sat on the beach since I've been here, so Monday I took my new beach chair and my book to the beach.  It was so relaxing and enjoyable, but would be more enjoyable with a friend.  I stayed out max 1 1/2 hours but got a sun burn on my chest that has hurt up until yesterday.  I'll be wearing sun screen from now on.
5.  Wednesday after I went to the gym I got a call from Melanie inviting me to come swim.  There were two other ladies from the branch there with their kids too; Lisa and Leah.  I had also met them on Sunday and am sure we will all become great friends.
6.  Yesterday I went to the library and got more books, movies and cd's.  I got a few recipe books because I love a good recipe!  I was so excited to get the latest Walking book by Richard Paul Evans!  My Aunt Leslie had it in Phoenix, but I didn't have time to read it before I left.  These are always fast reads and super enjoyable.
7.  Cherries have been on sale this week, which I have enjoyed so much.  I'm a succor for any fruit, especially summer fruit!
8.  I got a new dress yesterday!  I ordered it on and got it yesterday.  It is hot pink and white chevron print and perfect for the summer!
9.  I miss Mr. J a lot.  I can't wait to see him and my family in 3 weeks!
