January 2023 Randoms

๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฑ John's graduation is coming up fast. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I thought this was so cute!

This is from an article in Best Friends magazine, a really good animal organization in Utah that I've donated to for years. Kristina is a longtime online friend of mine through our blogs and Facebook, and it was neat to see her featured in this article! 

So cute!

I wear these L.L.Bean slippers around the house in the cold-weather months. I like them a lot, but it drives me crazy that the wool on the right one flips up like that no matter what I do!

Interesting things that I found in John's car. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
I was especially intrigued by the ovulation predictor test(!?!). It turns out that these were joke gifts from a Christmas exchange he did with friends. One of the girls got him the test and some lipstick. Ha ha, real funny, and way to startle the heck out of your friend's mom! (P.S. John in his innocence thought it was a pregnancy test. I don't think he remembered or even knew what ovulation was! ๐Ÿ˜‚)  

Two of my cousins' kids (so my first cousins once removed) are in this picture. 

I made some warm turmeric milk for the first time, and it was tastier than I expected it to be. Turmeric is so good for you!

The storm to which this notification referred turned out to be a total flop. We got nothing from it!

Sam at his annual check-up before the doctor came in. He's growing well (we think he's going to turn out to be quite tall), but he'll always be my baby!

I taught a lesson to my Primary class about Jesus being baptized and about baptism itself. I love teaching Primary, and my class of 5-6 year-old girls is so sweet.

AI and ChatGPT suddenly burst onto the scene last month. Literally within a matter of days, for one editing job I received information about how to crack down on AI possibly being used by lesson writers in their writing (a big no-no), and for another editing job, I found out that AI is proving to be hugely helpful for them in their business model. For me it was a really interesting contrast, and it showed some of the pros and cons of AI right off the bat. (For the record, I don't think it's going to turn out to be a very good thing.)
P.S. This snippet mentions my alma mater (Penn, not Wharton).


Archaeological finds like these are the coolest! And I think they're good historical evidence of the truth of The Book of Mormon
