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 well.

Our weather has taken a turn again, it's cold, wet, windy and foggy and has been for the last couple of days. I've been doing a bit of seed planting whilst it's been wet but the rain has ruined the cherry blossoms and the garden is covered in petals, it looks like pink snow!

I'm going through to town for my Slimming World class this morning then on to Leah's for the rest of the day. The older children are back at school today so it'll just be Joseph for most of the day....can't wait!

Have a lovely day emoticon

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
