From DC to Yucaipa: A City Girl Attempts Country Life

 Sister Anderson and I took care of the Palmer's animals this weekend while they went on a mini vacation. I fed the chickens, gave the horses hay and mucked their stalls, fed and played with the dogs that are half wolf, fed the cats (we don't actually see them very much. They wander to who knows where. It kind of reminds me of the stories Dad used to tell us about Bailey's adventures), fed the fish. They do have a bird. But they said he had gone a week without food before so we didn't need to worry about it. We also took a wrong turn down a dirt road one day and took some cool photos. Enjoy!

The darker horse is Sadie. Sadie is a lady. Dunny is the lighter male that Brother Palmer rides. Yes I am wearing Brother Palmer's giant cowboy boots. No I don't have makeup on. That's the country life style, right?

This is Penny. She wasn't very good at selfies....

"For God doth not walk in crooked paths,
 neither doth he turn to the right hand nor to
 the left, neither doth he vary from that which he hath said, therefore his paths are straight, and his course is one eternal round." -D&C 3:2

Well. It took me a million years to send those photos. So now I don't have time to do a weekly email....

This week we had a regional broadcast on Sunday with stakes from California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and parts of Canada. You can probably look it up on IT WAS AWESOME. Elder Hamula (he just visited our mission a couple weeks ago) conducted and gave a talk that sounded like the one he gave our mission. 

Transfers are Wednesday and we find out about them tomorrow. I feel like I will probably be staying and getting a new companion, but we will see. Zone conferences are next week. I'm looking forward to that. We also got a referral for a family, so I might have some new people to talk about this next week :) Sorry this is so short. The library is closed for Presidents' Day and our wifi here is terrible.

Love you all! It sounds like you are having wonderful missionary opportunities and that is so awesome! Keep inviting! That's all we can do.
