This first day of vacation was very un-vacationlike. I got up early and went outside to work for a few hours on the patio . . .

and then went to church, where I am known as my parents’ “bow tie son.” During sacrament meeting we heard a substantively strong but presentationally weak talk about happiness, followed by a substantively weak but presentationally strong talk about the “tender mercies” of the Lord. Also, for the first time ever, I actually plugged my ears in the middle of sacrament meeting in an effort to block out the noise and chaos of unruly little children.
I ditched out of church after sacrament meeting to keep working — the theory being that I might as well work while my parents are otherwise engaged and thereby free myself up later in the day when they’d be free. I worked quickly and got quite a bit done by the time they were home.
After that, it was time for dinner and Lady’s birthday party. I put away the computer and enjoyed the celebrations and the Davis chocolate frosting. Mmm.
