What a great and glorious weekend it was here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! Sunshine, hot temperatures and blue skies! You should have been here.
Began with a 2 hour discipleship session with a dear friend
Two over easy eggs
Two strips of thick sliced pepper bacon
One hash brown patty
8 oz. of Orange Juice
Next, Irene and I took a stroll (in my power chair) to the Saturday Farmer’s Market about 5 or 6 blocks away. It should have been called the Saturday Plant Market – no vegetables and farm products in sight, but numerous flats of annuals and such.
We then loaded up the power chair and drove down to NE Portland (Broadway Avenue) and met our daughter Sonja for lunch. We then walked Broadway for a number of blocks going into the various stores.
We got home about 6:00 PM and began watching The Iron Lady with Meryl Streep. I fell asleep in the recliner about 20 minutes in. Irene woke me up at 830 to go to bed. Ya, I know, I couldn’t believe it either
Up for devotions around 5:00 AM.
Breakfast at 7:30 AM:
Sausage biscuit – Jimmy Dean sausage patty, cheese, ham on toasted bread
8 oz. of OJ
Gathered with the body at Grace Bible Fellowship – our 3rd visit there. Not crazy about it, but nowhere to go in Kelso.
Message from Colossians 2:8-15 – The Sufficiency of Christ
Daughter Shannon and granddaughter Madilynn drove over from Vancouver, WA and we went to Lake Sacajawea in the heart of Longivew. There we had a picnic of Subway, BBQ Chips, and Soda. Walked (power-chaired) around the Lake on beautiful walkways, enjoying the hottest day of the year in SW Washington. It hit 90 degrees, too hot for me!
Drove back home about 4:00 pm where we visited for a bit. Shannon and Madilynn took off.
Popped Moneyball in to VCR – loved the movie, very good! (3 or 4 BAD words) Then because we paid for two days now via Redbox, we watched Iron Lady. I actually stayed awake. It was a good movie also. Thank you Red Box.
All and all great weekend here in the
gorgeous Pacific Northwest!
Happy 56th Birthday to my sister Donna Glynn (Metcalf) Fitzpatrick of Austin, TX!
