Another week just whizzed by
Monday, 30 Jan - We spent some time teaching in the morning and then worked on catching up with other things the rest of the day. Margaret went shopping for Aboriginal fabric to make a table runner, which she will be making on 4 Feb. FHE was conducted by Bishop Akroyd and we reviewed the Pacific Area plan for 2017 - strengthening our faith in Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ.

Oh my, another month down. Time is really flying by. We went to Costco in the morning to get Mike's hearing aids adjusted. Then back to the meeting house for lessons and teaching.
Thursday, 2 Feb
We went to Costello's and picked up our opal rings today. Pictures to follow. Mike has to take his ring back for a minor adjustment. Mike also had to go to the bank to wrestle with the people there on a matter for the ward as part of his counselor assignment. Mike lost the wrestle.

Margaret's ring. 3 white opals inlaid in gold. Solid back to help the light reflect back out the opal; hence, giving the blue & green colors.

More window cleaning - the ones they could not get to last Saturday. Also had to get a key made for one of the Elder's flats since they lost a key.
