Pendleton's Walk for Life
Sunday, June 22, 2014
Still a bit "under the weather" - i wonder where that phrase came from. Will have to research. So will be staying home - not going to church this morning. So will just do some Bible study here at home.
Looks like a warm day - right now it is 55 with a predicted high of 84 - and will probably get that warm. Oh, i do love the warm weather. My son likes it about 68 - and not much higher. So he is not too excited about the warm weather to come.
This weekend we had the Walk for Life here in Pendleton. My friend Elaine is a cancer-survivor and is active in the local group. I had been interested, but had not taken part. But after losing my son, Greg, to cancer this past year, I became much more aware of the program. I decorated a luminaria in honor of Greg and one in honor of Tom, a veteran friend who is battling cancer now. The event took place Friday night at the Middle School - from 6 p.m. to 6 am. Saturday morning. The luminaries are placed around the track and there are people walking the track all night - beautiful!! I had wanted to stay and walk the track at least once, but the school is on the south hill and it was a bit windy - and with this cold and cough , i decided it would probably not be such a good idea. But, Elaine was going to pick up the luminaries for me so I can send Greg's to my sister in Medford.
This afternoon will probably be knitting and watching more Jesse Stone movies - we have all of them and i have not watched them for a while. Also, am going to do a bit of weeding and plan to take a short walk in the neighborhood.
Hope everyone is having a good day -
