Gofita replied to MikeUtah's discussion Mixed drinks for beginners in the group Alcohol for Beginners

Love Sundays

Posted on October 11, 2010 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Sundays are soooo nice now. I can relax and spend time with the family and go and do things. Since we live in Utah, everything is pretty open and not very busy! I spend my reading time on freshening up on my Mormon history, Bible history, and secular history. It was a great day!
