We accomplished a fair bit this week but much of it centered around the needs of the new missionaries' apartment here and around the needs of the Branch.
|Cool picture of the spiral staircase going up to the Elders' Apartment. Makes you dizzy just looking at it. 50 stairs to climb up to there apartment. Marble stairs at the bottom.|
Our Branch has just started publishing a weekly bulletin to keep everyone up to speed with what is going on. We bought a new multifunction printer to allow us to print this off. So Ed also had to set that up which he actually was able to do with no assistance other than the paper directions that came with it. He felt like phoning Salt Lake back and telling them how well he did.

The missionary apartment is coming along fine. We continued buying stuff for it this week. We went to look at a second hand stove on Monday. It was in a cool little neighbourhood of Charleville called Montcy St. Pierre. It used to be a separate village but got swallowed up by Charleville but still has a lot of a village charm.
|A Monastery right by the river. It was beautiful!|
The stove was great and was a good price which included delivery and installation. However the mission office would rather that we buy a new one because of warranty issues. On Friday Ed went and got one to be delivered next week. We did some cleaning and rearranging and Ed put together a bookshelf. He also took all the cardboard, styrofoam and plastic to the dump. He has always liked a good trip to the dump. Lynn stayed home cooked up a pot of black beans. They tasted delicious.
Saturday was absolutely beautiful and everyone was out walking. Our little square was packed with people enjoying the sunshine. The outdoor cafés were full with onlookers. Spring is definitely in the air.

Au revoir de la France,
Lyndi-lou and Eddie too.
