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!

Pointed toward autumn

Kids love to read to dogs! There were a few free minutes at the library this week when Demi-dog and I were waiting for the next child to arrive to read to her. During that time I sketched this mom reading to her daughter. The little girl had already sat next to me and Demi and, because she is only four years old, I read to her.

Fall is definitely arriving, quickly. I'm starting to see vineyard workers cutting the grapes off the vines and carting them away in huge trucks. The crush comes next - that's when the entire community smells like grapes!


  1. I like it!! Simple yet, it looks lovely

  2. I agree - the simplicity says it all! nancy

  3. I'm glad the read-to-a-dog is catching on. I remember your post a while back when you started it and the library patrons didn't know what to think of the whole thing.
