It has been a quiet week here at the Borden home. We didn’t even get a single family stop to trick-or-treat. My poor husband is now stuck with eating the candy. I do have to admit I have no willpower to leave the candy alone, so I do sneak one every once in awhile.
Sheri Russell had a big surprise at work this past week, when her friend, Cindy Reams from Colorado, stopped at the bank to see her and have lunch with her.
I attended the Elma/Monte football game on Friday night. It was sad to think that this would be the last football game I would enjoy sitting in the Davis Field grandstand. I have so many good memories of the years cheering for Elma as a student and now as an adult sitting in that old wooden grandstand. But no matter where we sit or what we have to sit on, I plan to be there for home games again next season.
Mike and Arline Tobola went camping at a campground in Astoria, Ore., with their daughter, Elizabeth and grandsons Oliver and Porter Vandewark. While at the campground, they did pumpkin carving, hay rides and trick-or-treating. They had a great time and this trip was in celebration of grandson Oliver’s “life skills” award from his school Roosevelt Elementary in Olympia.
We survived the storm on Saturday. The lights did blink a few times, but I was very thankful they did not go out.
The first Sunday of the month morning breakfast at the Satsop Methodist Church was hosted by Bruce and Paulette Straughn and me. Pastor K led the Sunday morning service. Welcome to Ron Enstrom and his daughter, Ronni, who joined us for our Sunday service. Cadie Nuxoll and her friend, Sage Ainsworth, lit the candles. Pastor K read the scriptures. Prayers were asked for Bev Scott, who was in the hospital this past week, for Val Madison and Rick Kinsmann. Continued prayers for Marlene Thele and Tim Nuxoll. Please keep the family of Lynn Russell in your prayers. The offering was collected by Mark Carpenter and Dalton Combs. Pastor K and Ralph Osgood served the communion.
My thought for the week: “Cherish yesterday, dream tomorrow, live today.”
Have a good week.
