Round-Up Has Taken Over -------

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Well, Round-Up has taken over Pendleton!! Yesterday driving thru town - parking lots filled with trailers and cars; Main Street blocked off as vendors set up their booths; booths, cars, people around the Round-Up grounds!! What an exciting time for our quiet little town. emoticon

Last night when we had the door open we could hear the Main Street Cowboys music and some of the crowd cheering!! They are really loud!! emoticon

Today we had our Round-Up Sunday in the Park and just want to share a few pictures I took. Here is our Worship Leader and one of the ladies in our church as they lead the music:


Our Pastor introducing our speaker:


Our speaker, Marty Campbell and his wife, Mandie. He was a bull rider in his younger days, but broke his back in a fall. Now he teaches Ag at the High School and is much loved by the students and in our Commuity:


Here we are waiting in line for lunch -

Labor Day

Sunday, September 05, 2010


This morning our Pastor asked how we plan to spend today? - Labor Day and also the Sabbath. He shared the story of Jesus healing the man with the withered hand - and the authorities becoming upset because He actually healed on the Sabbath.
Then Pastor challenged us to "step out of the box" - look around and find someone we can minister to today -

How will you be spending the day? What can you do for someone else? What do you have in your hand that you can share with someone in need?

Labor Day was began as a recognition of the many workers who have made our Country strong. How can I carry on this great tradition - for my generation and for my grandchildren? How can I encourage them to be their best?

  


Football This Evening

Saturday, September 04, 2010

Just had a phone call from my son-in-law - he lost his Dad this past week and has spent many hours enjoying football games with him. So, he and his family are coming over this evening for football and tacos. Will be fun and i hope a good evening for him.

I was just sitting here at my computer - not wanting to do anything today!! Yesterday was the funeral for the husband of my best friend!! She is such a strong person - but somehow "my eyes just kept leaking". Last week my ex was in the hospital here for a couple of days - very dehydrated and not doing very well. We have been divorced for over 35 years - but I guess in my heart i did not divorce him. Now, am wondering how i will feel if he should die. Gotta get out of these feelings!!!

So, am glad Eric called and - he does not know it - but he got me moving. Have cleaned the bathroom and have the second load of laundry going. Next is change my bed linen and sweep and mop the kitchen.

Am wearing my pedometer now and my goal is to add 500 steps each week. Not so many - but a goal i can do. Gotta get out of the Sedentary catagory. Need to see how many steps I need for that.

Hope every one is having a good weekend and have planned something special.

    Glad you're feeling better Barb, five hundred steps a day extra is a good start especially when you add the extra water emoticon emoticon

Hope you have a wonderful time with your family tonight emoticon
