This weekend is general Conference. I have a tradition that has carried over my whole adult life. I do my deep or spring cleaning during conference. I know some sit and watch closely. I cannot sit that long. So I clean as I listen. Closets, out with winter clothes, in with spring (yes even if it snowing). I wash walls, clean drawers, every inch of my bedroom and kitchen. They have asked us to contribute more this year to Deseret Industries than usual so I will be less finicky about what I keep. There are so many more in need now. I can dig deeper and part with clothes, coats and shoes and miscellaneous things. I love my spring and fall cleaning combined with Conference tradition. I look forward to it. And you never know if you will find a secret stash of chocolate.
Yesterday I got a call asking if I would allow the above picture to be broadcast in General Conference during Elder Bednars talk. I spent some time on campus with my laptop getting the best version to send down to SLC. They do not know if it will be used for sure but it is the one they requested so we will see. If the resolution is not high enough they will not be able to use it. I think I am ready to upgrade my camera. They need one at the office so I will donate my D40 there. I love that camera. I am going to take a Digital Photography followed by Photo shop class in May at BYUI. Now the question is which camera to get. I love the one I have, the new D40's have moved up from 6 to 8 mega pixels. I do not want to get one too big to travel with.
One more weather update. It is still snowing like crazy here.
