As I was exploring Cash and Carry the other day I noticed they had the seaweed wrappers (sushinori) used in sushi and I was inspired to give it a try. Fortunately, I had watched my daughter (Sarah) make California rolls once so I had somewhat of an idea. There were also concise instructions on the package of sushinori. My first effort turned out very lame, but subsequent rolls were passable. I'm sure its obvious which plate is the first and which plate is the last.
I've been busy at work filtering beeswax and making candles. I really enjoy making candles but I've about made enough to do me for another year. I think I have enough dipped tapers to last us into April or May. Lately I've been trying to crank out beeswax nativity sets. They look really nice, but a few of the figures are a challenge to get right. I've poured a lot of Wyoming donkeys and cows as Quentin calls them. Those are ones missing part or all of their ears due to frostbite. Its taken a bit of practice to learn how to get them out of the molds without breaking of part of an ear or two.
Tomorrow marks my second full week serving in the bishopric. The biggest lifestyle change has been the need to manage and schedule my time better. The service is rewarding, but I'd rather serve somewhere that doesn't involve being in charge of so much stuff. I really can't complain. They left me alone in Primary and scouts for about eight years. I still get to participate in scouting now, just in a different capacity.
