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!

For the love of dog

It's much too warm to set in the agapanthus plants I bought on Thursday, but that's one of the next tasks.  Driving around town I realized that I was the only person without agapanthus somewhere by my home.  It must be the most popular flower we grow here in northern California.

Brix, the suicidal dog, struck again.  I went outside to see Steve's grill completely tipped over and the drip pan spotless.  I'm guessing someone might have a tummy ache later, but I agree that last night's chops were as good as they must have smelled to a dog forever on the prowl.

In the meantime, I have to laugh at Misty, one of our guests this week.  She's a blue heeler and her DNA forces her to herd.  I walk to the kitchen for a glass of water, look down, and she is there.  I go outside to gather the mail and walk into the house, she is by the door, waiting.  I get dressed, she is there.  I draw, she is there.  I mean, Misty is the quintessential Eternal Presence.  She'd make a great service god.
