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 -

    What a lovely idea, I bet the luminaries look lovely.
    We had a walk for life this Sunday too but ours are in the daytime and the ladies dress up in pink tutus or else wear pink clothing. It's for such a good cause and I did one a few years ago before I got ill. I would like to do another but I just haven't been fit enough but now things are on the up and I've lost my weight maybe next year! emoticon

    I hope you're feeling a bit better now barb, take care emoticon

    You were wise to keep warm and not stick around in the cold. We're having much the same temps here. It is deliciously cool in the morning but picks up the temp in the mid-80's during the day. We have the even breeze that comes through from the coast or the mountains and cools it down again. Absolutely perfect.

    I had a bit of a tummy bug yesterday. Still not up to par, but better. A good day to stay inside and make some more earrings.

    Have fun watching the movies. If you're like me, I have to get up and walk around or do some stretches when I start feeling stiff. Otherwise tonight I can't sleep and tomorrow I can't move.
