|Diane puzzled over scripture study|
Diane's Relief Society activity for the month was on Comfort Foods, which included demonstrations for Chicken Casserole, Spaghetti Sauce (by Andrea), and of course Chocolate Lava Cake. When it's too cold to walk you might as well eat in comfort.
Phyllis, one of our ward members, gives a neighborhood luncheon each month so nonmembers of the church can get to know members. Diane was the honored guest this month and was given a flower (Paper Whites). It had nice white blossoms on tall stems, so tall it kept falling over. Once the blooms faded she cut the stems off and will save the bulbs for planting.
Diane decided she needed to work on a project each month. This month was her JOY project made out of painted (and papered) wood). It will be nice for next Christmas.

Alyssa turned 11-years-old this month (Jan 16th). She's growing up fast, but is still in primary. She wanted an apple pie (instead of a birthday cake) so Paul was able to eat it.
