My Friend Dyanne Must Have Prompted This

So, in her Ten Things of Thankful post this weekend, my friend Dyanne mentioned that one of the children in her preschool class announced during circle time that she (the child, though I assume it applied to Dyanne, too) was wearing underwear.  Dyanne later asked her blog readers, "What are you thankful for this week? How's your hair? Wearing underwear?"

I answered that my hair was in need of a cut, and yes, I was wearing underwear.  Dyanne responded with another question:
Always good to know underwear status of my friends.
Am I the only one who ever wondered about this?!

Well, Dyanne, this is your lucky day.  I really don't remember ever before having a conversation with my friends about my underwear, but apparently you aren't the only one wondering about underwear status.  

Today this church-produced video came out, explaining about the underwear I wear:

Well, Dyanne, there you have it.  You probably didn't expect me to have a video to explain my underwear status.  Quite frankly, I didn't expect to, either, but when I saw that this video came out the same weekend you posed your questions, I just had to use it!  

Thankful thought:  Thanks for underwear, and friends with questions.  


  1. I didn't know this. Thanks for the lesson. Good to know that I'm not the only one who wonders about the most silly details and how others feel about something...
    I do like my underwear though - always black by the way - and my hair is a mess right now, but just not in the mood to do something about it.

    1. Well, underwear is not exactly a common topic of conversation, but since Dyanne asked, and the video had just been published, I thought I'd share. :-)

  2. What a fabulous video! The church is really being open and candid for the world. What a blessing to see another part of the Hastening of the Work.

    1. I agree that the video did a good job of explaining about garments and temple clothing.

  3. Kristi -- that was so interesting. I had heard of the Morman undergarments but now I feel educated. :) I think anything that serves as a daily reminder of God and call to holiness is certainly a good thing. Thanks for sharing.

    1. You're welcome; I'm glad you feel educated now. :-) Wearing the garment does help me remember God daily.

  4. Funny how that all worked out. :)

  5. Who knew that statement by a 3 year old would lead to such a fascinating lesson! I had read once about the undergarments, but I never really knew what was meant until now. Thank you for sharing the video! It was really interesting! You always do such a good job explaining your religion and your faith, and I love learning from you.

    And now I know you will always be able to answer "yes" to the question, "Are you wearing underwear?" :)

    1. I could hardly believe that video would come out the same weekend you posed the underwear statement. Your preschool student has no idea what a conversation she has started!

      Glad you enjoyed the religion lesson. And you're right, with very few exceptions--like swimming--I will always be able to answer "yes" to that question.

  6. I had now idea - that is really fascinating, Kristi. Thanks for sharing that bit of information.

    1. It doesn't usually come up in conversation--unless it's an election year and Mitt Romney is running. :-)

Conversations are so much nicer when more than one person does the talking. :-) Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts; I'd love to hear from you!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
