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!

Bright is the morning

Yesterday Brix let out the first whine, at 5:29 a.m., exactly the time he woke us up the day before.  These dogs arrive with clocks in their bellies and when the alarm goes off it's time to rise and shine - regardless of what our inner clocks may say.

When you have five dogs staring at you - "Where's breakfast?" - you sort of cave to the pressure.  And I wanted to get the chickens from coop to pen before they begged the neighbors for release.

Morning begins early here in Wine Country.  I am so glad Steve is back home - early morning is his home land.
