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!

Another summer day

Youngest Grandson and I trekked over to Petaluma to shop in The Seed Bank.  The building is a century-old bank, the kind I remember when I was a kid.  There was carving way up high which caught his attention.  He was full of Oh, wows when we first walked in.

The Seed Bank is full of heirloom seeds, hundreds of seed packets in display racks that would challenge a public library.  It's the hugest selection I've ever seen. We browsed and chose. The next step, of course, is to plant our findings in  pots that he can take home tomorrow evening.  He enjoys this sort of thing, he planted California poppies at home last year and now they are spreading

Nana's Art Camp was either a learning experience this afternoon or a bust, depending on your point of view.  We watched tutorials for the Bind-It-All but when we tried to bind our own sketchbooks there was a clear lack of expertise.  The videos made it look so easy!  We'll keep at it, but this was clearly a challenge.

  1. I have to read the instructions every time I use this tool. Sometimes I mess it up but mostly I do okay then. It seems like it should be so easy....
