I am trying to be more produtive this year. I am reading a book that Danelle got me which is an LDS scripture based workbook and guide of AA's 12 step program. It helps us recognize that there are many things (not just alcohol and drugs) that are "addicting" and separate us from God. I hope that I will be able to grow closer to Heavenly Father and perhaps overcome some of my negative issues. I also set up my old computer in my room, so even though it doesn't work that great, perhaps I will write more.

I also found two items that I had started quite a while ago so I created blogs to post them and hopefully I will continue to transcribe them into the computer so I can get them posted and printed. Grandma Throckmorton's book will be a real challenge but I will try and keep at it. It has been years since I read it so I will enjoy reading it again. The Book of Mormon Journal was written between 1999 and 2006, I hope it doesn't take me 7 years to get it typed into the computer!! The links are on the right top corner of my blog.

The weather is beautiful here in Phoenix, But as usual I have not been out much in it. That is one thing I want to change about myself. I want to be more "outdoorsy" to be out walking and hiking etc. As I typed in some of grandma's journal today, she talked about how she loved the outdoors and everything about it (sun, wind, rain etc.) but that her sisters were just the opposite. I need to remind myself whose child I am, and get out there!!

I'm so excited that you are posting Grandma's book and your Book of Mormon journal. Thank you! Aimee and I have started the book as well. I hope you don't wait until it's too hot to get outside.
Love you!
