Monday in the Swamp

Just got home from Chemo and Radiation.  Just 2 more Chemos to do and 16 more radiations.  I feel really good today so we did a tour of the garden and greenhouse when we got home.  Mac went plant shopping while I was on drip and bought me a bunch of flowers including a battery-operated Iris because I'd been moaning about the fact that Irises won't bloom here.
Enjoyed watching the Masters this weekend, it's always such a great tournament.
Watched Jumanji this week, not a great movie, but it was amusing.
Read a ton of books and found a new (to me author) Yrsa Sigurdardottir, an Icelandic author.  I read her Why Did You Lie a really good mystery.  Three different characters tell their story  and then their stories are brought together.
Skyped with our daughter yesterday.  She's getting a promotion from mid-level management to upper level with a substantial pay raise to go with it.  We're very proud of her.  This week marks her 4th year in Japan.
I'm feeling good enough that I'm off to play piano which requires my brain to actually think and I do believe I can.

  1. So good to read that you're off to play the piano ...

    We watched the Masters at the weekend. Patrick Reed did well from start to finish, a worthy winner.

    Good news about your daughters promotion.

    Sending my good wishes, you are in my thoughts.
    Hope the remaining Chemos and radiation go well.

    All the best Jan

  4. Wish I knew how to sent you one of our walking irises, also called an Apostle plant. The blooms are like orchids. Your daughter is a genius! The apple does not fall far from the tree! Keep up the god work on the treatment. Just saw I typed god instead of good. I'll leave that as is! God bless!

  11. Good days are good news! As I drove in the driveway this afternoon, I saw an iris that I have never seen before growing near our bird bath. It shall henceforth be known as Janet's iris. :)

  12. I am so happy to read such good news. I admire your fight and tenacity so much! Well, I'd love to see a battery operated iris! It sounds hilarious. But isn't it nice that spring is on the way - well, already there where you are.

  20. Ok so I just sent you an email telling you I couldn’t find your blog. Just why I prefer blogging on my computer rather than phone. I won’t even go into it. I just want to say I have been thinking about you and so glad you are feeling better!!! Yay!

  21. So glad you were able to play the piano and enjoy your garden. I never heard of a battery-operated iris! What will they think of next.
    We watched Jumanji last week; you summed it up perfectly.
    Congratulations to your daughter!

  22. I think you will have to show us a picture of your battery-operated iris when you are up to it! I'm surprised they won't grow in Savannah as we just saw some in bloom here at Mepkin Abbey. So glad to hear you are having some good days and up to enjoying the weather a bit. Take care.
