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.

I'd love that Barb emoticon

The calf was lovely, only a few hours old. There were five more which were three days old and two at five days, they looked huge compared to the new one emoticon

Hi Barb, hope you're well now.

I'm just back from a WI visit to a local creamery, in fact, the farm we get our milk from. They also do cream, yoghurts etc and have just gone into cheese making. It's a family business and was fascinating to look around and find out how the various products were made. The farmers wife treated us to fresh scones with homemade jam and cream...naughty but nice! I did have half of one and enjoyed it.
We were introduced to a calf that was born last night, six hours old and so cute and gorgeous...a future milk producer!

The weather has been variable, it was hot yesterday but with gale force winds and they're still around today but it's very cloudy with rain forecast.
Hope your weather is better1

Have a good day emoticon

Good morning Barb,
Happy Fourth of July to you emoticon emoticon

Our weather's glorious again but it's not set to last, they're giving rain for the week-end. It's so up and down!
I'm hoping to do a bit of gardening this afternoon in the shady area at the bottom of the garden and I'm getting my walk in this morning before it gets too hot.

Have a great week-end, I'm so glad you're feeling better emoticon
