What changes a year can bring! it was a year ago that my oldest son was diagnoses with cancer. After surgery, radiation, and chemo treatments, the cancer finally won. And God took
Greg Home December 30. I still do so miss him and know there will always be days that it just does not seem like he is gone.

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.

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

Hi Barb,
Hope you're feeling fit and well now, nice to see you're getting out and about again.

l've had a lovely day today babysitting, they certainly keep me on my toes!

I didn't do too well with weight loss this week, l managed to stay the same but l've had a tummy bug for a couple of days and though it sounds daft, if you don't eat you don't lose on this healthy regime l'm following...l'm feeling better now so maybe next week!

Have a good day emoticon

emoticon Thanks for stopping by Barb. Yes, I am having fun making and displaying the jewelry. For so many years I just couldn't get sparked . . . stress does that . . . but it feels good to be alive again!!!

For some reason I stopped getting notifications on your new blogs and I see there's quite a few I've missed. . . . I'll have to subscribe again. . . . and spend some time catching up on what you've been up to!
