We had such a fun weekend. Dale, a friend of Greg's, drove up from Medford to visit - and brought his daughter, Sara. They are really good people. We just visited, ate, and watched movies. They were here 3 days and plan to come in September for the Pendleton Round-Up. Hoping it will be a bit cooler - it was in the 100s while they were here so we did not get out much to see the town. But, during Round-Up there will be lots to see and do. Just hope they can both get off work to come.
Greg finished his radiation in Walla Walla and will start chemo here in Pendleton next week. Just hope he does not get too sick. He is already losing some hair from the radiation. This picture was taken a couple of years ago.
I do so love my boys. And Greg is so dependable and steady and loving.
Today Greg and I went by his house - he will probably not be able to live alone again - to pick up a few things and then to our favorite store - WalMart for a few groceries. And, of course, he found a couple of movies that we do not have - IronMan 2 and the John Adams miniseries. Then we fixed hamburgers for lunch - oh, so good. And, I just got up from a 2 hour nap.
It is cooler here today - in the mid 80s right now. I have not been very faithful with my challenges, but have lost another pound. May just be the stress of all that is happening in my family right now.
Just hope you are all having a memorable 4th of July. Our country seems to be struggling so right now - but we have a God that is so much bigger than our little issues. And, we do know that He truly is in control of all that happens - even when we may not understand. We can truly trust Him - as Greg has said, "We have to trust Him!!".

Was good yesterday - well mostly. I did take my vitamins and calcium - and did get my 4 glasses of water! Dinner last night was home-made pizza. But, i did limit myself to 2 small pieces and a big salad. So all was not lost.
Am thinking about a challenge for myself for next week. I would like to start going to the club again - have not been since our lives were turned topsy-turvy!! Will think about this some more. I was feeling so much better when I was going every day - just 10 minutes a day. And, now my legs are really bothering me again. So i know it is time. And, I know that once I do go, I will feel so much better!!
It has turned warm - in the mid 90s and a predicted over 100 next week. Will see. Thank goodness for A/C.

Well, today has been a "lost cause" with my water intake. Only 2 so far and I am about ready to "hit the sack". I got up about 6 this morning - had not planned to get up so early, but just woke up and could not get back to sleep.
Did some cleaning in the coat closet this morning - seems like it is such a "catch-all". Then about 1 a friend called to see if I was going to join the knitting group at the Buckin' Bean. So, of course, off I went. Just can't pass up a chance to just sit and knit. And they are such a great bunch of gals. Finally got home about 3:30. My boys were playing computer games - so I baked some chocolate chip cookies. Have a friend that I have promised some to, so put aside about half for him. Now to get them mailed to him. He lives in Medford and I keep him supplied.
Geoff went off to bed and Greg and I fixed us each a baked potato, with egg, some bacon, and cheese. They were so yummy!! We watched the 2nd half of Oz, the Great and Powerful while we enjoyed our potatoes.
Very good movie - well worth the watch!!
Now I am ready to call it a day and head for bed. But, will drink one more glass of water before I turn in.
