November 19, 2011

First time doing our grocery shopping on our own.  We've been enough times with Elder and Sis. A. that we are basically familiar with the store and the common items that we generally buy.  Most of it can be done by looking at the pictures on the labels.  Did take the wrong turn on the way home though - we just turned around and went back the way we came until we recognized a few things and got back on track that way!!

Pres. & Sis. Charles and the Asst. Elders took off driving to Thessaloniki (about a 6 hour drive) today.  They'll be back Monday night.  It sure is quiet around here!  The Zone Leaders in Cyprus tried to call us with an order, but the connection was so bad, we ended up texting.  Still, I wasn't able to make myself understood - one is from Switzerland and the other is from Denmark. We'll try tomorrow.  We received a call from a sister in New York, trying to find out the area code for Trapeze!!!  They don't have very many phone books here and when they do, you might or might not find your name in them (this is Greece!).  Trapeze is in a beautiful area, on the coast of the Gulf of Corinth and has only around 250 residents, so it doesn't has its own area code.  We finally worked it out on the net by the "state" that it is in.  She was really happy for the help - she's serving a mission in the Manhattan Temple. Never a dull moment!
