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!

Planning for quiet

I planted flowers today and I don't even know what they were!  They were part of the flat of plants given to me yesterday, the goal being to plant everything else tomorrow.  (I don't mean these, they're supposed to be nasturtiums.)
Wednesday is always my busiest day so I'm welcoming the respite offered by tomorrow.  I'll work a half day, but I'll be in town and  not pressured.  Which means I'm feeling more pressure from getting the plants in the ground than in working.  I'll even have time to draw and paint.  That's my favorite sort of day!


  1. Love your flower painting! Nice and cheerful.

  2. Hi Timaree -- Thank you for stopping by again!

  3. There is something very nice and appealing about this. I like it!
