County Fair Time

Took the girls to the Linn County Fair today as it was free admission day. Brought back memories of me and my best friend Paula running around our county fair. It's not quite the same to attend a fair as it is to be involved in one.

I did partake in my yearly dose of pink cotton candy.

Where's Ty?

We have Extreme Makeover: Home Edition just outside of Corvallis this week. We went to the jobsite on Monday to see them clean up the demolition. It was really exciting to see all the blue shirts. We've signed up to help but haven't gotten a call yet. We're going to head back to see if we can help build or something. I can't wait to see the house. Reveal is on Saturday.

HOT!!!

"Is it hot in here, or is it just me?" A question I ask regularly, usually to the answer of, "It's you." But, it really IS hot now with several days at near 100*. PTL we decided to get an air conditioner.

It is interesting to be 40 years old and not one of the 'young ladies' at church. You know how the 'older ladies' are supposed to "be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God." (Titus 2:3-5) ? It was a shock to realize that when the 'older ladies' were talking about the 'young ladies' they weren't talking to me. 'Cause I'm in the 'middle-aged' group. WOW!!! Just my thoughts for this morn.
