This morning Elder Gowans left early to go mow our Sister's lawn since he was not able to do it yesterday. There was a light rain, but he felt very blessed that it was not pouring. Over the weeks he has been doing all the trimming by hand since she does not have a weed eater. Last week he had the young Elders come out and help him do the trim around the yard. As a result nearly all of it was complete, the only thing he needed to do today was one side of the house and along the driveway. With all the rain we have had over the past month, the ground has been very soft, so the weeds pull very easily. It only took 10 minutes or so before it was all complete. With all the trimming completed he was able to get right into the mowing. It lightly drizzled most of the time he mowed, but it kept it comfortably cool.
After the mowing was complete we got ready for the afternoon. Elder Gowans attended his 3rd chaplains' meeting and Sister Gowans went to her appointment to have some fluid shot into her knee to see if that would help jump start the knee producing its own fluid in greater abundance. It has been rather painful this evening.
Later in the afternoon we visited a member family out in Martinez. We had two more families to visit that evening in the same general location, so we stayed out there for supper and ate dinner at a Mexican diner. It was very good. Afterward we visited two more families. One of the families, the husband knew our son Jacob from dental school. He was a year behind him in school, but they had met from time-to-time. It is a small world.
