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!

Hunkering down

Brix and I hiked through Sonoma Valley Regional Park this morning. We weren't being very brave -- the trail was a paved bike path -- but it was almost three miles round trip.  Spanish moss was waving in the wind in abundance, everywhere. There were a few trees in full color, but mostly it is wintry here. We woke up to a little frost on the ground and ice in the puddles.

Several storms are on the way here, beginning during the night.  Rain is forecast for at least the next five or six days and flooding is likely in some areas.  We aren't in a flood zone so it won't be a problem for us, but parts of the county are badly hit some years.

I hope there are some patches of unscheduled time in between storms so Brix and I can continue our park walks.  We're sort of on a roll!
