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!

'Tis the season of bounty

The cherry tomatoes I planted last April just don't know when to stop. I keep refilling the bowl, but we eat them like candy so they go fast - but these days, there are always more.

During the summer I read and mentioned Jonah Raskin's book, FIELD DAYS, about his professorial sabbatical year spent working on a local organic farm. Oak Hill Farm is actually just spittin' distance from our home so we drove out to pick up some veggies.

Now I have the makings for two two pots of soup - vegetable and potato/leek.

While we were shopping the doggies patiently waited in the car.


  1. The dogs are so patient and adorable !! I want to come and share your homemade soups !!

  2. And look how good they are being! My little dogs are pretty good except for barking at anyone who goes by.
