This morning we went to Hanford to do apartment inspection for the two companionships there. The elders did well. The zone leaders did not. The only thing we can figure is that the zone leaders have so many additional responsibilities that they don’t have time to clean their apartments. They almost always have the worst apartment in the zone.
Sister Fanning made a grocery list and menu. We went shopping at the commissary on base. We found some large Toblerone candy bars that were left over from Valentine’s Day. The regular price was $2.99, and they were on sale for $1. Sister Fanning bought a bunch. It is one of her favorite candies.
Sister Fanning took a nap because she had not slept well last night.
We went to the Ward Spaghetti Dinner and Cake Auction. The food was just the standard – salad, spaghetti, rolls, and cookies. However, it is the main fundraiser for girl’s camp. The girls and their leaders made some fantastic cakes. Some were bid on, purchased, and then donated back to be sold again. The cake that Sister Fanning wanted (a six-layer Boston Cream Pie) went for $150. We were not able to get a cake because they were all too expensive. They also had people bid on cream pies that they would use to hit selected people in the face – one of the elders, the Bishop, and one of his counselors. The Ward members bought three cakes and gave them to the elders. They gave us a cake. We took it to a military family who lives in Lemoore. They had three additional children staying with them for a week, and were not able to come. They deserved a treat more than we did.
We got home late.
Cakes and more cakes. And yes, one cake has maple frosting with bacon.
