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!

Unscheduled weekend

We returned Youngest Grandson to his home last night, but he will return on Tuesday.  I promised him more of Nana's Art Camp activities since the camping week and flying got us off rhythm.  He was asking for help with a painting project yesterday and I took that as a hint.

Steve will be working in Napa today and then off to Fort Bragg on the California coast for tomorrow.  So Youngest Daughter and I will be keeping each other company and tending the five dogs and five chickens.  We're outnumbered, I hope we do everything right.

I have several thousand projects to start or complete.  The summer heat won't allow for much yard work, but at least I reset the pavers leading to the front door so I can cross that off my list.  Our front yard is mighty jungly these days with untrimmed bushes and trees taking over.  I so overdid the black bark on the lawn that it looks like I pulled up a big, black, fluffy quilt!  I can easily shovel off a couple inches for some other projects and wet it down with a hose while we wait for rain.  Eventually it will settle, but instead of rounding my figures up I should have rounded down.  Or maybe the guys were just generous when they loaded the truck.
