Love my knitting group - such a lively, fun group. We meet 2 or 3 times a week and knit and chat away!! Right now am knitting a prayer shawl for a friend who has cancer and a scarf for me, I like beading too but have not done any for a while. We do have a nice bead shop here in Pendleton - need to stop in there and get inspired.

Elaine and i have been meeting for almost 2 years now - at the Donut Shop. We have done a study of the book of Roman and have now started a study of Revelation. We have a good study outline and are excited about what God is going to teach us.

I have discovered that just logging into SparkPeople every day, reading all the inspiring blogs, and visiting the teams i belong to is not going to take off all this extra weight i continue to carry - i am going to have to actually start following all the good encouraging suggestions and do have a plan of my own.

I live in Pendleton, Oregon - in the NE corner of the state - famous for the Pendleton Roundup in September - when the town double in size. Lots of activities: the rodeo, Happy Canyon (the Indian pageant), 2 big parades, and booths all over town that have goodies to eat, beautiful articles to purchase.

Good morning Barb, hope you're fit and well.

How's the counselling going, hope the situation is resolved or at least a lot better.
I'm thinking of you emoticon

The little indian summer didn't arrive and we seem to be in the throes of the 'seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness' especially today where l can't even see the bottom of the garden!
And it's so chilly! Brrr!

My a arm's still pretty painful, not sure if the colder weather makes it ache more and l'm on medication for a sinus infection which has caused a lot of pain under my right eye...seems to be on the mend at last, it doesn't actually hurt to breathe in any more!
Apart from that feeling chipper emoticon

Good morning Barb, hope you're fit and well.

My shoulder has been playing up a bit over the last week after l got a bit ambitious and pegged the washing out myself, it's the reaching up and backwards l find difficult!
l didn't sleep so good for a couple of nights as it's painful to lie down but last might it all caught up with me and l just zonked...slept for eleven and a half hours straight...lol...l feel so much more alert today and the pain seems a little easier too!

Sorry to hear you've family trouble again, the councillor will be a big help to you, it's nice there is someone you can confide in. l know what it's like being a mother hen, please take care and look after yourself!

Thankyou for the lovely positive comments about me, l feel so much fitter and healthier (apart from my shoulder) l only wish l'd done it years ago instead of waiting until l'm older...my skin's not as elastic as it was and is beginning to sag a bit...lol...it's good job l won't be displaying it!

The weather's still dull and cloudy but the weathermen are forecasting a little indian summer beginning tomorrow, when it's supposed to hit 73 degrees, and lasting into october which will be nice if it materialises.

My friend, Ruth, turns sixty five tomorrow, she's organised a little get together for twenty five ladies which will be nice, we're all meeting up for lunch at her house...it's been catered for by another lady who is in big demand for wedding food etc so should be delicious, l'm going to enjoy myself!

Well, take care and have a wonderful day emoticon

Good morning Barb, hope all is well with you.

It's the long August Bank Holiday week-end here, they're notorious for wet weather but today is gorgeous.

We're starting to put the garden borders to bed now the flowers are going over so will be doing that this morning them might venture out for a walk, not sure as we're hoping to do that tomorrow.
The weather has been quite chilly the last few days with some good downpours too so I'm hoping it stays fine. I think I might feel the cold a bit more now I'm a bit thinner!

Had a lovely afternoon out with a friend yesterday, so nice to have a cuppa and a chat. I see you've done the same with Elaine now she's back. I tried to comment but your feed has gone back to private again. emoticon

Have a wonderful week-end emoticon
