Our week has been full of rain and wind....then more rain and wind...a never ending cycle right now here in Oregon. Our friendly Washington state is full of rain as well. But there's been mudslides and washed out roads....on the interstate in WA. The Oregon coast is a mess as well with some towns in feet of water! Late last week we stayed home due to weather...it's worse now! Sigh! I was loading photos of November onto my computer this evening in an effort to find more photos for calendars. Here's running water that's different than rain. But it's still water so I thought I'd give you a taste of a nice water fall on the Lewis River. This is by the Cedar Creek Grist Mill (1876) that my friend Linda and I visited on our way to a photographers meeting in WA, early Nov. It was a nice afternoon out. A bit of chill in the air though.
It never ceases to amaze me how fast the weeks go. It's Thursday already? I'm behind. What have I accomplished? Am feeling better now that my throat doesn't hurt so much...it was just irritated from talking at work. Spot cleaning different areas to keep house from looking totally trashed! I made one final order for a Christmas gift this week. Have got the small Christmas tree box out of the garage and into living room. No cards addressed. Calendars half way done. New Testament Bible study is nearly done. One more week. Revelation is our last book. Of course. We know how it ends. A good discussion tonight. Attempting to read "Lakeshore Christmas" by Susan Wiggs. It's good but there's not enough time. I got my last box I ordered today of gifts from Family Christian. Ordered on-line Black Friday deals. So happy they arrived but haven't looked at but one thing. Couple other ones are for someone here in the house! Hide! I bought Kirk Cameron's "Saving Christmas" dvd, which is supposed to be good. I am going to make better strides at putting decor of Christmas up this weekend! Tomorrow evening we have a dinner at church so that will be fun. Way too much eating lately. Last Sat. was Phil's work party at the Hilton in Portland. Oh that food was so delicious! Worth the drive into town which was a total pain with one way streets and "buses only" lane so you couldn't turn. Then you have to watch out for the tram as well! Overall it was a good time. More parties coming up and 2 birthdays end of next week. I'm just now ready to end and head into another zone for a few hours. Thanks for all kind comments and I've enjoyed reading blogs as well. I'm a bit behind....when am I not? Take care and have a blessed Christmas season!
