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,
How are you feeling this morning? Better I hope emoticon

Well, I managed to get this on the right page this time...lol...I couldn't believe it when I'd finished yesterday!
This morning is weigh-in at my Slimming World class so, hopefully, another couple of pounds will have disappeared...if it has I'll have hit the 100lb lost mark...we'll see!

The weather is glorious again, hot and sunny.
After class I'm going to Leah's until David can pick me up about teatime so it's going to be a lovely day in more ways than one emoticon

Hope you have a wonderful day too, take care emoticon

Aww! Thanks for the yarn Barb, I'm sure it will come in very handy.
I really enjoyed kneelers, I did go in for an hour a couple of weeks back, just for a natter but today I did the whole morning and managed quite nicely with the sewing too. I'm a bit achey across the shoulders this afternoon but nothing I can't handle. I only use one arm to sew, I can't work from underneath and on top together...lol...no co-ordination and it takes twice as long! emoticon

I'm doing ok. Just tired. Need to take J for an EEG appointment. I think there is improvement but something just isn't right. Only time will tell. Thanks for asking. It's nice to know you have real friends. Thanks.
Pam
