On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Halloween's done!

Halloween is the kick-off to all the winter holidays. We had 201 trick-or-treaters at the house last night, way down from the last year.  Steve and I took turns answering the door.  It was mild weather so we put a baby gate by the front door to keep the dogs in and just left everything open.  I grew up in Chicago and remember one year when I walked home from my fifth grade class, freezing in my costume as the snow fell.  What a change here in northern California!

  1. Wow. That's a lot of trick or treaters! Living in the country we get none. My daughter gets quite a few but nowhere near as many as you.
