After the announcement in Relief Society about gooseberries in the kitchen for the taking, we decided to try them out. We had the elders to dinner that afternoon, so we made a gooseberry pie for that occasion. Unfortunately my pie crust was as hard as a rock, but they were good sports! I had visions of making gooseberry jam the next day, but thought better of it when the “heat wave” hit! This image confirmed that I made the right choice!
Speaking of fools, we fit the description later in the week. On Thursday, we had some appointments in Cirencester, 30 minutes from Stroud. We read Nephi, chapter 1 in the Book of Mormon with a sweet investigator. She told us that there is a monument, with the name Nephi on it, near the Roman amphitheater just a few blocks over. We had a half hour to kill before our next appointment, so we decided to go have a look. She really had us going! We looked all over and found nothing at all on the monument! 🙂 (I don’t think she meant to make fools of us–she is really humble and sweet! We did get a kick out of the experience though!))
