The week beginning 24 August 09

Most of Monday was spent inspecting the elder's apartments. We've just taken on this assignment and have four apartments to inspect. Each different but all have a similar feel to those we took care of in Malawi, Africa - there is just something special about a missionary apartment.

On Tuesday night (8/25/09) we went over to Halifax with Elder & Sister Tait to see an updated version of "Jack and The Beanstalk" put on by a theater company called Shakespeare by the Sea. The location was Point Pleasant Park, ('A' on the map) once the location of several artillery batteries and 18th century fortifications. The play was located at one of the old artillery sites (the Cambridge Battery) as can be seen in one of the photos. Jack was a 'boy' of 25 still living with his mom. The story develops rather humorously and instead of the golden harp, Jack steals the GOLDEN ?? which is actually a long acronym for a stock market ticker-tape machine that spews out the future market conditions. We were no more than 6 to 10 feet from the actors which made it all the more enjoyable. See also SBTS. Watch the slideshow:

Wednesday: Another wonderful day in the Temple. After returning home we went grocery shopping and bought some pizzas for the elders whom we had over for dinner.

Thursday was a beautiful sunshiny day. We took a walk in the woods looking for berries. Most weren't quite ready for picking but we managed about a pound.


  1. it sounds like a perfect night. I love the seating. How much easier is that to store? I love stuff like that

  2. It looks lik a good time was had by all. I'm glad you are having fun. The seating looks comfortable and weather proof. :)
