More Reflections

I learned on Thursday that I have officially passed my second CPCU test! Celebrations all around! I only have 5 more tests to take. :o

I am enjoying my genealogy work. I still have a lot to do, but I am learning more all the time. It is not only interesting in a historical sense, but every little bit I learn about an ancestor makes them come alive for me. I feel I am gradually getting to know them--they who made my life possible.

I still fight the feeling of being overwhelmed by all I need to do. I am working at taking things a step at a time and planning out what I need to do. I am also setting priorities so that my time goes to those things that are most important. It is still hard for me, but they say that practice makes perfect!

It is hot and humid here which drains my energy. Storms pop up every now and then and I worry about the wheat harvest. The farmers need dry weather for a little while to get their crops out of the field. I hope they are almost done--early June is ideal harvest time for Oklahoma.

I have been reading more nonfiction these days. I still love a good novel, story, or poem, but essays are fascinating as well. I enjoy reading about nature and politics as well as observations on life and culture.

What are you reading these days?

I will soon be reading "Dark Sky at Dawn" by L.(Laurie)C. Lewis, from the 'Free Men and Dreamers' series.

JR, I got an email from our mutual friends about those books and that the author is a member of their ward. I look forward to reading them myself.

Every now and again I get to share a choice moment while working at the temple; hope your family work bring you many of them later as you take their names to have the work done.
