Guess who will never be the Elder's Quorum President again? (Shon has been Elder's Quorum President 3 times, in 3 different wards.)
That's right, Shon's a High Priest. He is the new first counselor in the Chermside Ward Bishopric. Our Bishop is awesome. He's also been bishop for 7 years. . .
We live in paradise. It is heavenly. Most of the time. But we definitely have our moments - the kind that make you say, "can I go home now?" It just gets a little awkward being a good little Mormon mother of 5 in this society.
For instance: yesterday I got a text from a couple mums at Churchie asking if we could all meet at my house to plan car pooling and have a coffee. I called her back. Um . . . you can come over, but we don't drink coffee. "That's ok, she says, we'll just have tea" and hung up. I later explained that we're LDS. We don't drink, nope, not even Coke - except for medicinal purposes :-). In the mean time, we had a nice cup of vanilla mint herbal tea and some lovely lavender cup cakes (did you know lavender tastes good?! It does!)
They look pretty. My new best friend, Vanilla Pod, made them for me. (Vanilla Pod is an awesome pastry shop near my house.)
Here's my new tea pot.
Banks in Australia close at 4. That stinks.
