Living Hand To Mouth

So, you have to feed 40 missionaries (hungry missionaries) at our monthly Zone Leaders Council dinner. You have to make a presentation to them about staying healthy while working in the sun (in Spanish), you have to travel to Ibarreta and then Apostoles two straight weekends for a District Conference (where you have to speak during the meeting in Spanish) and you have your other everyday activities, too.

What do you do with your "spare time?"

Well, if you are Diane Heyman, you relate the five health tips for surviving the sun and heat to your five fingers (agua, sombrero, bloqueador del sol, repelente de insectos y pañuelo) and then you have the Zone Leaders promise to share the information that you present to them with their fellow missionaries by offering them one of these if they will do so...

(the flesh color of the sugar cookies is a peach glaze Diane made from scratch...notice the individual bags they are in...Diane said that just like in real life, no two hands were identical!"

I know she only has 24 hours a day like the rest of us but I can't figure out how she gets it all done. It is all I can do to keep up with her. I do know what fuels here though...reactions like this...

As Curtis once said, "Mom's language of love is cooking!"

  2. They turned out perfect! Mmmm. Sounds yummy.

  3. That woman has some kind of super power. I don't know how she does it either. She's amazing!

  4. I bet she was wearing her rainboots while she baked!! You are AMAZING Diane!!
