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!

There's always something

Tonight's forecast: Frost and the lowest temperatures so far this season. The weekend storm brought us over four inches of rain, putting us ahead of last year at this time. That, I know, can be deceptive. I can remember lots of years of early rain that ended up in drought conditions with water rationing by summer. Still and all, it's a good way to begin.

Brix is in big trouble with me tonight. He found and destroyed one of the new stab journals I made last week. Fortunately - there's always an upside - I hadn't written or drawn anything yet and had already complained about that style. Still, it was a good show-and-tell model for classes and now it's rather unsalvageable. I'll look again, maybe I can dismantle it and still use the cover and simply sew in another stack of paper. Steve's mom was right, "There's always something...."
