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!

Officially autumn

"Well, Raquel, I guess that's the end of the green beans until she plants some more for us."

"Looks like you're right, Rocket, but they sure were good while they lasted."


  1. Did they eat all your beans? Time for the lock-up! I just don't know how our forebears did it. I really don't. I know my grandmother from Minnesota wouldn't let her boys cook rabbits they'd killed, in the kitchen. They had to cook them outside because she didn't want to see another one in her life.

  2. That's a sad story....:<(
