First Day of the New Year

What did we do on the first day of the year?  We just took a day at home today.  We have been been doing the laundry and cleaning.  We took time to so some small tasks at home and enjoyed just sleeping in this morning.  We needed to find some small laundry bags for student to put small items in when they wash in the washing machines at the Barlow.  We couldn't find them at WalMart the other day.  So we jumped on the metro and headed to Columbia Heights were we teach on Wednesdays.  They have a Target.  Sure enough they had them.  Then we decided to take an adventure.  We figured out a new bus route that we have never taken before and went over to the Safeway by us. One the way to the bus stop we walked right through the middle of a drug sale.  We just kept on walking but we saw the exchange. Safeway had shrimp on sale this weekend.  They have these huge shrimp and they will steam them and spice them for you.  Elder Anthony also wanted a crab dip and crackers.  We ended up doing a little shopping and jumping on our regular bus back home.  That adventure took the majority of the afternoon but we ate a pound of shrimp for dinner tonight cooked to perfection. Elder Anthony even got in a little football watching today.
