Been Awhile

No excuse, just enjoying feeling good.  I've taken over the cooking at last, though Mac still does the dishes.  Swimming every day and enjoying the yard, though there's still too many weeds---someday.
A lizard has taken to sunning himself of the pool ladder, I worry that he'll fall in.

Neither of us know what this flower is.

The Lilies are doing exceptionally well this year.

Tuesday in the Swamp

Summer has arrived here in the swamp with temperatures in the 90's and afternoon thunderstorms.  Sunday we went down the road to the Marina, the restaurant there, FishTales, has the best fresh shrimp and cold draft beer.  Mac also had a small Low Country Boil.  It felt so good to be out and about.
Today I went in the pool for the first time, the water was warm and felt good.
Look at the beautiful Confederate Rose growing next to the pool.
I'm feeling good and getting stronger each day.  Saw my oncologist last week and they're pleased with my progress.  Next week I meet with my Radiation doctor.
Leek Frittata for lunch today, I've started doing some of the cooking and that feels good too.

I'm not a Bear, but I'm definitely fuzzy, my hair has started to grow back and as my sister forecast ( she had chemo about 10 years ago) first you grow fuzzy fur, eventually you get regular hair.
I had a good week, made my pillows, did some decorating and generally I felt pretty good.
Hot here, in the 90's, needless to say I won't be going out.  Went shopping yesterday and it wore me out.
Next week is all about Doctor appointments---Retina Specialist, Oncologist and  Primary Care Doctor.
Hope you're having a good weekend.

This  is Mac, I'm so sad to say that Janet passed away the 30th of May. Her heart and mind and attitude were strong, but her body could ...
