Hello, Father.

Today we bought some curry powder. I’m going to make curry and it’s going to be great. Thought you’d want to know.

Also. We went and visited the Ski Jumps in Lake Placid. I have some great pictures, but I left my camera at the apartment. So….. you’ll probably see those when I get home. Lets be honest. But it was really cool. I felt like I was in the space levels of Halo II. Its a very similar architectural style. Lots of concrete and metal framed windows. Plus its the only bird’s eye view I’ve had in the last 2 years. It was as if I was descending on a space ship, pretty cool.

I think the Europe trip is sweet, I’m actually really jealous of Aurora’s drive. I’m impressed that she was able to save up for it and just go like that. I wish that I had been driven enough to do that. But whatever, maybe someday I’ll go.

As of right now. The last 30 days are the same as the preceding 700. Every day brings some strange new challenge. I’m expecting that the last 10 days will go by very quickly. But its all going pretty fast. We’ve managed to plan out a major event for almost every day that I have left, so its flying by. But that’s how it goes, if you’re busy, time just slips away.

It snowed this week, but the snow only stuck around for a couple days.

I’ve been thinking a lot about priorities. Right now I have the missionary priorities, which are based around the gospel, but exclude other necessities like education and employment. So I’m going to have to change my priorities, that’s a blatant fact. Its what I’m going to change them to that I’m interested in. I mean there’s the obvious, I need to go to church, live the gospel, go to school, be employed. -Those kinds of things- but figuring all the details out, how much time I want to spend and where I want to spend it, that’s tricky and that’ll have to be determined by experience.

Which is kinda cool when we step back and think about it. That’s the same reason we had to come to Earth. We knew all about the right things, but we didn’t have any experience, we had to apply the things we learned. Its really interesting to see how pattern based life is. Its all like one big spiritual Mandelbrot. And if we can recognize the patterns we can prepare ourselves for the future.

Anyways, see you soon!

Love,

Elder Siddoway
