End of the month

Yesterday was long, but good day. I spent all afternoon watching a spring league high school basketball tournament.

The NWL All Stars, with 3 PAA seniors were the overall champs. Watching this was much more entertaining than any professional game I've seen!

Anyhow, back to work...

I'm sore

We worked in the yard yesterday for several hours, mowing, pulling weeds, trimming bushes and attacking some blackberry bushes. I ached all over afterwords.

In the evening we went to a barbecue at a friends house. We ate and ate and ate...

Today is a basketball tournament for our friends' son, so we'll be watching that.

Yard Day

Today, we're going to work in the yard, pulling weeds and getting it cleaned up.

The weather yesterday at the coast was cool and cloudy, but we still had a good time with our friends.

The girls went and watched Star Wars last night.

A Trip to the Coast

My family and some of our best friends are going to spend the day at the Oregon Coast. It should be a nice, relaxing day away from the stress of the city.

From Portland, it only takes about an hour to be at either the coast or the mountains, so we can pick our choice.

Yesterday, it was 95 degrees--and broke the record for the day. After work, I came home and mowed the lawn--it was pretty hot!

A Sunny Friday for Our Anniversary.

Vainiaku's concert last evening was good. PAA has a steel drum band and that was enjoyable, as well.

Today is Lily and I's 4th anniversary.

It is another sunny day here in Portland. It is supposed to be in the low 90s again today.

For the long holiday weekend, we are planning on getting our yard into better shape.

A hot day in Oregon

Yesterday, it was around 81 degrees; today and tomorrow are supposed to be in the low 90s.

My oldest daughter is in a choir concert this evening at PAA. We had a good talk last night about her dreams and goals for life. She is now wanting to be a writer, and is very enthusastic about that career.

I'm currently reading David Drake's RCN series on my Pocket PC. (I take the MAX lightrail system to work, so I have plenty of time for reading). It is light reading, but I enjoy it.

1st Entry

I just got back from Tennessee and Georgia. I was attending my nephew's high school graduation from Georgia Cumberland Academy.

We made it safely back to Oregon (eventually). In Phoenix, we had a two hour delay. The plane was too hot for us to board (they said it was 106 inside). They eventually got it cooled off and we made it to Portland about 6 (instead of 4 like it was supposed to be).

It was a pretty flight up to Portland, though. I could see Lake Tahoe, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Raineer, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Adams, etc.

We had a good time visiting with everyone, although it was too short :-(.

God Bless.
