Life is Busy

Life has gotten so busy that I have started to have to make lists of things that need to be done each day. And then I generally am not able to get everything done on the list, so the next day's list becomes longer as a result. Here are a few of the things I have been up to the past week or so.

  • Writing a report on seniors and Medicare for my job. Boring, but great since work has been meager lately (like all year long).
  • Doing a ton of book marketing stuff. I am trying to learn how to use Photoshop Elements to make some of the marketing materials. I made an invitation and next up is to make a little logo/slogan thing that says, "Truth well taught."
  • In Primary we have been preparing for our Sacrament Program this Sunday. I am praying it goes well, but am nervous about it.
  • Yesterday I got my hair colored (thanks Becky!) and now I need to get it cut. I am so running behind on getting a photo taken for Christmas cards. I need to have Ashley find a time to fit us in...
  • I bought some logs for our fireplace. So glad it is getting cool enough for fires. I love the ones that last three to four hours and don't make too much smoke. I lit the first one Monday night, but am trying not to go too overboard with the fires. I am waiting until Sunday to light fire #2.
  • And finally, I finished the Angel Moroni section on my manuscript. I went a bit overboard and drew 5 of them (I included one above; what do you think?). Somehow I found this part extra interesting, so I couldn't help myself. I can always edit some out if I need to do so.

I hope life is keep you busy, but not so busy you can't keep up. What has been keeping you busy lately?

Scripture of the Day: D&C 89:11-12


  1. You are such a talented artist. I had no idea.
    My last post pretty much sums up what's been keeping me busy.
    Does life ever slow down?

  2. Good luck with the primary program, I'm sure it will be great. I realized after we did ours how nice it is to be done! Kind of different feelings about it when so much of it depends on you, still a lot of fun though. And I love the angel Moroni, you did a fabulous job.

  3. Hello Rebecca,
    I have been performing and extensive study on the Moroni Statues.
    I write you to inquire about the name of the Moroni you have sketched.
    The title of the file suggests it as being one of Karl Quilter's however the young scrolled angel of which there only 5 I have found as being LaVar Wallgren's from this source, ( Perhaps you could shed some light on this in helping my research.
