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!

Several readers offered suggestions as to how I could anchor my bird so it wouldn't be floating in space.  I added a tree and that seems to help.

It's been raining off and on since midnight and more is forecasted for tomorrow.  Looking out the window with no calendar I would swear it is the middle of January, but I guess the trees are too leafy to make that stick.  It is chilly and I wore my winter jacket every time I left the house today.

Good weather for a game of Solitaire!


  1. ...love it! You've done a great job anchoring him...

  2. Good job of anchoring him. We got a bit of rain today too. I wish we'd get more but at least it washed down all the dust.

  3. Beautiful bird painting!
    I am eagerly awaiting the warmer weather, too...wearing a turtle-neck sweater today.
