I don't know how many loads of laundry I did today, but it was a lot. Many of our clothes from this weekend weren't really dirty, but they were damp. We had gotten caught in a couple of downpours in Tacoma. The last one, Sunday afternoon after the Bull Riding, was a doozy. We were drenched by the time we got from the Tacoma Dome to the car in the parking lot!

It was nice today! We had sunshine most of the day and it got up to 72 degrees. I went out to hang a new bag of nyjer seed in the tree in my bare feet! After the winter we've had, I'll take it!

I spent some time sorting, discarding and filing the mail we had picked up at Daughter Mary Mae's last week. I added up the parcels and wrote a check for the first 1/2 property taxes that are due the end of April. I got caught up with the homework for tomorrow's Bible Study and spent some time reviewing the lesson I'm going to teach Sunday.

Then I settled in to re-read Daughter Dawn and Todd's missives from Bolivia from back in 1990. They were in one of the old files I found when I was cleaning out the study at the church. Shortly after they finished college, they had gone as Mennonite Central Committee volunteers to work as Ag Specialists in Bolivia, where they lived and worked for six years. What memories re-reading their letters home brought back!
