It's been a long time since I have written a normal blog. I don't know why either because usually I am pretty regular about it.

This weekend we had General Conference for our church. It is a semi-annual get-together of the church where leaders are selected to speak on topics of their choice. It was amazing because I felt like the messages that were spoken, were written for me. I wish I had the transcripts here but they won't be available till Thursday. I loved that 2 or 3 I can think of, mentioned the fact that we WILL be together again with our loved ones, and that mortality is such a short time for us. It was good to hear. I have been dreaming about my dad lately. All of them have been good dreams. I wish what happened in my dreams, would have happened in real life.  I savor the memories I do have, and hope I will be able to remember more.

I love my family. I really do. I know a lot of people say that, but I really really do. I have come to appreciate them SO much more now that I have moved away from them. The saying that friends come and go, but family stays forever… has become such a real thing to me. They are the ones that constantly keep in touch; they are the ones that care about how I feel. I love that and I love them for being that way.

Life is good. The weather is ABSOLUTELY fabulous here. In fact today David and I went to the park (which is 100 yards away) and flew kites. It was amazing. I looked at the PA website (which is really cool) and it says that the fall colors have changed only 10% but by October 18th, they will fully be changed. It's already so beautiful. We'll be driving down the road and among all the green trees; there will be a tree with full out RED leaves. It's unreal sometimes. I want to take pictures but I don't have my camera yet.

I am in such a melancholy mood. David thinks I am in a bad one but I am not really. We have been having so much fun lately; I think I am just pooped.  It's so nice to be able to spend time with him because come house building time, I am not gonna see him at all. That all should be happening real soon.  

My family will be coming here in approximately 6 days. I can't wait. I really can't. They aren't going to want to leave. And I hope they don't.
