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.

Barb, thanks for stopping by. Has been pretty hot lately so I headed for the Coast along the Hwy 101 with a destination for Alameda, CA.. I met some old buddies of mine I was in the Navy with at my old ship, USS Hornet that is now a museum. Brought back a lot of memories. Temperature did not get over 70 degrees

Hi Barb,
Hope you have a good morning with Elaine.

The weather is weird, sort of hot and humid but also spells of hot, brilliant sunshine or heavy showers with thunder & lightening, you get wet through if you get caught in one!
Some places were flooded yesterday but we've had our new pipes in the village streets after last year's flooding so it didn't affect us.

I haven't had a nap after getting up so early so l expect to sleep well, though it's now almost 8.30pm and l don't feel tired at all. It feels a bit cooler tonight so that might help.

DH and l are having a day out tomorrow, not sure where we're hoping yet, it's supposed to be warm and sunny, l'm hoping it won't rain but not be too hot either.

I'd love that Barb emoticon

The calf was lovely, only a few hours old. There were five more which were three days old and two at five days, they looked huge compared to the new one emoticon
