NOVEMBER

This has been quite a year. I had such plans to get my life under control - church involvement, craft projects, weight, and others. And, they my oldest son was diagnosed with terminal cancer - and everything fell by the way. He is now living with me and another son in a very small 2 bedroom apartment. And, being with him takes most of my time.

This has been quite a year. I had such plans to get my life under control - church involvement, craft projects, weight, and others. And, they my oldest son was diagnosed with terminal cancer - and everything fell by the way. He is now living with me and another son in a very small 2 bedroom apartment. And, being with him takes most of my time.

I am still enjoying my knitting - meet a couple of times a week with fellow knitters - such a fun group. Have knit socks for Christmas for all the girls in my family - and now have a couple other projects i am working on.

Have been meeting with a friend every Tuesday morning for over a year for Bible study. We spent a year in the book of Romans and are now looking at the names of God. Not going very fast, but we are not in a hurry. The study we are using is from Dr. Ralph Wilson at joyfulheartl.com. He is an amazing man - pastor, teacher, and a pioneer in internet marketing. And his Bible studies are so good!!

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.

Have been overweight for way too long!! This year had planned to focus on one main goal a month, but somehow life just went sour!! But there is still some year left - not a whole lot - but enough to get my life back on track!!

Good morning Barb, I hope you're fit and well.
I saw you'll be gardening, I've been doing the same. Not too much as I'm still working on my arm but the exercise helps it a lot if I don't overdo it.
I've also began sewing again, making a sampler for Joseph for his christening. I'm not doing a lot at a time as it makes my arm ache but it's slowly coming along.

The weather is beautiful today, sunny with a gentle breeze but we have had an overnight frost so it's still too early to put out any bedding plants. I've grown a lot of busy lizzies, lobelia and french marigolds for my tubs and they're beginning to flower now. They're already planted up in their tubs and I'm hardening them off through the days but they're back in the greenhouse for the nights. Another couple of weeks and they should be fine to stay outside.

Hope you have a wonderful day emoticon

Thankyou for the congratulations Barb, things seem to be humming along quite nicely now, I'm determined to keep it off which is why I've given all my clothes away!

The little sewing machine so reminded me of my grandma, she used to sit in the corner of the front room and the machine would practical whirr away itself she was so skilled. I used to love watching her and when she'd finished the machine would fold in on itself and become a table with the machine hidden away inside...thought that was very clever when I was small...lol..
I hope you get yours working again, I've just been looking at mine, it's not a treadle but it's a very old singer with a bullet shaped cotton bobbin. My youngest son broke the little cotton threader catch off it when he was small and I can't find another one, all the more up-to-date ones have a little round shuttle so sadly it's not usable!
I think I might check out ebay, you never know what you'll find on there!
