Walking to the back door of the apartment - this is our main entrance
Our second floor apartment patio where wer can see this Beautiful tree outside our window. We can watch the squirrels flying and jumping through the trees!
Here is a wonderful surprise gift (on loan) from Brian. I just kept mentioning to Brian how much I missed my piano at home and just being able to sit down and play a hymn. So before we left Laura and Brian's house from the holiday weekend together, he set this keyboard out for me to take back to the apartment. Laura also sent this Arnold Friberg print of Christ she had found at a local secondhand store deep in the heart of Mennonite and Amish country. This print had a great story behind it too, as is this was Arnold's first concept idea of Christ appearing in the Americas to the Nephites, but he ended up painting the one we all remember with Christ descending from the sky for the Church. He painted this picture later in his life. Laura was quite surprised to find a picture of Christ appearing to the Nephites in a thrift store for only $8! She couldn't decide where to hang it, so she sent it with us to brighten up the apartment.
