So far we don't have big plans for the weekend. DH starts his vacation on Sat. We have rain today which stinks because tonight is the MN Orchestra in the park concert. It's a great time! Hoping the rain comes early and exits fast! (After my run of course!)

I bought groceries yesterday for the weekend and I'm sure it will include at least one campfire.

Yesterday I noticed water under our water heater so I have to try and get someone here to look at that. We are due for a new one. This one is at least 11 yrs old. I'm just wondering what will go next seeing that things around the house usually come in 3's.

Have a great last day of June!

We are having two parties over the 4th of July weekend. One for family on the 4th and one for friends on the 2nd. We don't entertain often....usually just family gatherings. Today, my plan is to weed the flowerbeds. We didn't mulch this year because I'm concerned about hubby's heart. (He's waiting for a by-pass operation.) Tomorrow, we will drive to Knoxville to go to Costco to load up on food. Friday will be cleaning day, I suppose. They are already predicting rain for Saturday afternoon (the "friend's party" day), so maybe I just need to weed the flowerbeds right by the front door. No one will see the rest of them! I'm not a big believer in needing things to be perfect anyway. Let them see a few weeds and dirt.

I slept a bit better but I'm still hurting. I'm going to call the Chiropractor today. Our weather has been so nice. Very cool mornings and temps. only in the 70's in the afternoon. It's hard to believe that we are heading into July already! Starting next week, we'll be seeing back to school stuff in the stores plus Fall merchandise! Things need to slow down a bit! emoticon

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Becky, I hope you got a good rest last night. It's so draining the next day if the night before was rough.

I'm sitting outside this morning enjoying my coffee and watching the wildlife on the lake. It's so peaceful to be able to do that. I love summertime!

Another beautiful morning! Yesterday was a great day! I got so much accomplished! Unfortunately I didn't sleep all that well. My legs were hurting pretty bad and when they finally quit hurting, I woke up with a headache plus I had multiple dreams! I'm hoping I sleep better tonight!

We had a beautiful morning on Sunday with rain in the afternoon. Our mommy duckie had 6 babies earlier this week. She was able to get 3 of them out of her flowerpot nest and abandoned the other three. Hubby scared the other three out of the nest the next day. We thought they died, but we saw mommie with all 6 ducklings out on the lake yesterday morning while we were kayaking. I was amazed they were able to get reunited. They stand a good chance at survival now they are with their mommie.

Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day. Although the temp. reached 90, the humidity was gone and there was a nice breeze. By last night we were able to open up windows and enjoy the fresh air. This morning the temps are in the low 60's and it's going to be another beautiful day!

We've been having crazy weather this week. One day it's cooler, the next warm and muggy. It's just been going back and forth. Plus it will get dark and look like rain, but it won't and pretty soon the sun is shining.

Yesterday we had someone come and grind the tree roots out. Now we can put grass down. We will plant another tree next year. It won't be in the same spot. We will try and find a more level spot to put it in.

I can't believe how fast these weeks have been going. Time needs to slow down!

Have a great day!

Becky

Good to hear from you Nana!

Yesterday afternoon, our wild "mommy duck" hatched at least 4 baby ducklings in the flowerpot on our boat dock. It's her second batch this season. The first time, she had 11 or 12 ducklings. I think about 5 of that group has survived. I'm hoping with her smaller brood this time that more might survive. We really enjoy watching the process.

I'm here to say that healthy eating works! After I got diagnosed with cancer, I stopped eating processed foods. That was almost three years ago. I lost 35 pounds without counting calories and have kept it off. I just got my lipids tested for the first time since the chemo has been out of my system and the numbers were fantastic....far better than before I got cancer. All my other bloodwork was great too. It's pretty cool to see good nutrition in action.

That had to be a lot of rain to lose a tree!

We had a nice weekend....went out to eat twice with two different groups of friends. Hubby still hasn't heard from the Cleveland Clinic to schedule his surgery. I think it will be at least a couple weeks from now.

I'm trying to get more steps in on my Fitbit on days I don't go to the fitness center. I'm great during the week, but really turn into a slug on the weekends.

Kay-I hope all goes well for your husband.

We have had so much rain lately. We lost our tree in the front yard the other night. Good thing it was a younger tree and there were no cars parked out front. My husband and son had it cleaned up yesterday morning. It looks strange to not have a tree in our front yard. We will plant one next year.

The reast of the week should be dry and the temps will start heating up as the weekend gets closer.

Have a great day!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around as much lately. Things are good here. We went up to northern Illinois to help my youngest son celebrate his 37th birthday. It was a quick weekend visit.

Like Becky, I get twinges of pain in my chest from nerve regeneration. I also have a little neuropathy from chemo, but I don't notice it unless I think about it. I think my biggest long-term issue is needing to care for my arm on my ALND side. I don't have lymphedema, but I can tell I get right on the verge of it. I probably need to wear my sleeve more often. I'm almost three years out from diagnosis.

My hubby just recently found out he needs by-pass surgery. Only one by-pass as far as we know. He's sent all his records to the Cleveland clinic to see if he is a candidate for minimally invasive surgery. If he is, then he will do it there. Hopefully, we will know if that's happening and when in the next day or two. Looks like this summer is going to be about surgery and recovery for him.

It's suddenly gotten warm here in Tennessee after a cool, rainy spring. I'm actually enjoying the warm weather. I love sitting outside when I have my morning coffee.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Kay from Tennessee

I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction. I had pain from nerve regeneration, but that didn't last all that long. I get twinges of pain periodically but that also doesn't last long. How long has it been? I hope it's just a temporary thing for you.

After the storms yesterday, it actually turned into a nice day! Temps. Are lower. The humidity is down. After my run this morning, it should be a good day to dig into some work around the house.

Hot and humid here in the Midwest too...wish I could sweat the weight off permanently emoticon

Feeling pretty good today...still dealing with chronic pain that waxes and wanes...especially across my chest where double mastectomies, severe radiation, and DIEP reconstruction has been done. Nerve damage, scar tissue and radiation fibrosis all lead to this...learning to live with it as a new normal...

Anyone else out there dealing with chronic pain from their breast cancer and treatment?

I would love a quiet, rainy day where I could do nothing. We've had rain, but we've also had people around or we've had to go places.

I'm not sure if the strawberry season isn't good this year or what. They have not advertised picking your own berries this year. So instead I go to the local stand and buy them. I bought 2 containers yesterday and froze one. They also got in some Georgia peaches, but they weren't quite ripe yet. I wasn't able to get to the Farmers market on Sat. because of a busy schedule. I will definitely get there this Saturday.

I'm jealous of your kitchen redo Kay. I'd love to start redoing things around here. First we need to get my boys moved out! As much as I love the company, I'm ready to be an empty nester. I haven't started looking for a job yet. I'm hoping to hold off until August. I've got too much cleaning to do around here and I'm determined to get everything done! These are things that should be done on rainy days, but again, there have been too many things going on. We have rain in the forecast for today so maybe this afternoon I can get started. As long as we don't lose power again today! We lost power around 3 yesterday afternoon and it wasn't restored until about 9:30 last night. I guess a tree fell on a power line. It seems like once a year that happens. My son had just put pizzas in the oven when it happened. Needless to say, they had to go on the grill. I had a turkey breast out, but now I'm cooking it today. Life is tough without power. My son actually said it was nice because we all sat around and talked instead of having any electronics on. I agreed!

Have a great Monday!

Becky

Happy Sunday!

It's a rainy day here. I actually enjoy rainy days. I feel like it gives me a pass on needing to do yard work and it's okay to take a nap in the afternoon if I feel like it.

I woke up with asthma this morning. I'm sure it's from all the dust from our kitchen project and possibly the pollen in the air right now. It took a while for my medication to kick in, but I'm finally feeling better this afternoon. I've been spending the day on the couch...as far away from the kitchen as possible. Hubby has been great about getting the kitchen put back together and cleaning all the things that got so dusty. I really appreciate him doing it.

Hi Becky, I'm sorry I haven't been posting regularly here. I will try to get back to being more regular about it. Our strawberry season just ended this week. It was wonderful for about a month. We have a great farmer's market very close to us that is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. We have been there like clockwork everytime it has been open buying two pints of strawberries. They didn't have any this past Thursday....so sad! I love buying local fruits and veggies, and supporting the farmers that live in our county. We also get pastured eggs and grass-fed beef. I'm grateful to be able to get all these things locally.

Things are good here. We have been without our main kitchen for over a month (have been using the little kitchen in our MIL suite downstairs). We had new granite countertops put in about three weeks ago that were defective. The company replaced them on Thursday with new tops and we can reassemble the pumbing and appliances today. They were out of the granite that we had originally picked out, but I like the new stuff so much better. It turned out to be a good thing that the first tops were defective....it just took a while. After having cancer, I consider being without my main kitchen for a while a minor nuisance....a "high class" problem in my book.

Another week has gone by. I can't believe how fast May flew by. I hope it slows down a bit. We have more rain in the forecast for the next couple of days. I'm not too thrilled about that. We've had enough rain for awhile.

Have a great Friday!

After a warm stretch of days, it has finally cooled down a bit. I've had the A/C on for most of the last few days. It has been too humid to not have it on. Hopefully the next few days will be cool enough to have the windows opened.

Homegrown strawberries are finally available! I bought my first container on Monday! So much better than the store bought ones. When they start allowing picking, I will definitely be out there this year!

Our veg. and fruit season hasn't begun yet. Strawberries will be ready soon though.

I love waking up to thunderstorms! Especially when I don't have to go out in them! We got very little rain yesterday and today's rain isn't suppose to last long. We do have chances of rain throughout the weekend though.

I didn't have any idea how quickly ducks would go from one batch of babies to the next. It was kind of shocking. I guess ducks mature pretty quickly.

We have had a very wet, cool spring. It's just now really warming up. I hope you got some rain.

We are having pasta primavera for dinner tonight with all the veggies that we are able to get locally right now. Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, onions...we bought a red pepper (not local) to go into it too for more color. I'm looking forward to it. Yum!

For lunch every day for the past few weeks, we have been having big salads with local lettuce, veggies, eggs (hard boiled) and strawberries. I'm going to be sad when strawberry season is over here, but I guess that means that blueberries and blackberries can't be far behind!

I didn't realize ducks had more than one hatching a year.

Yesterday ended up being a dry day and so far it's dry this morning, but we should be seeing some storms today. We desperately need the rain. I'm loving the warmth, but it is making it a little hard to sleep at night and I'm not ready to turn the A/C on yet.

I was thinking the exact same thing yesterday! It's not "hot" but everything is green and the temps have finally gotten to the point that I don't need to put on a light jacket when I go out.

Mommy duckie is working on another set of eggs in the flowerpot on our dock. I think it's her preferred place for nesting now. I was surprised at how quickly she went from raising one set of ducklings to hatching another.

It was great getting back on the bike again. It takes me a bit to feel comfortable riding, but once I get going I'm fine. We should have one more beautiful day before rain and thunderstorms arrive. We really need the rain so I won't complain. In fact, the first rainy day we get, I'm going to sit around and do nothing and enjoy it.

Have a nice Monday!

Becky

Becky, hooray for getting out on your bike! We haven't ridden since we got back from Ohio last Sunday, but the weather is supposed to be great here over the next few days. No excuses for me to at least ride by myself.

We completed all of our outdoor projects on Friday. Yesterday DH and I went out for a long bike ride followed by ice cream cones! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect week and weekend. Today it's a run this morning followed by a bit of cleaning and laundry and then we'll grill something for dinner followed by a softball game.

Have a great day!

This weekend was a busy weekend. We had cold temps. but now we are back to normal. Hopefully I will be able to plant my flowers this week. I have my flower pots done, but it was a bit too early to put flowers in the ground.

I haven't been on my bike yet this year. We just haven't had the time. Things are finally starting to wind down and my goal is to complete my projects this week. The end of projects always starts with Memorial weekend and that is coming fast.

Have a great Monday!

Gumdoc, congratulations on being one year out from rads. Tomorrow, I'll be two years out from my last rads. My arm is tight when I lift it straight up, but I suspect that is most likely from my ALND. I have full range of motion. My skin feels normal and has finally stopped flaking, but it will always be slow to heal for the rest of my life.

I got the all clear from my MO and BS on Wednesday. Next checkup in six months.

Today is our 10th wedding anniversary. To celebrate, we decided to go to Ohio on Thursday through today to ride their great bicycle trails. They have miles of very flat paved trails which are perfect for us. We rode 6 miles the evening we got there and 36 miles yesterday. I'm surprised I don't feel sore today since we hadn't ridden any yet this year.

One year out from completing radiation therapy.
Feels great.
Skin still very tight and some brown discoloration still here but overall, feels really good to not have to face that IMRT radiation table again.

We got in a run yesterday morning before it started raining. It wasn't a total washout, but it was gloomy and cool. The rain returned last night and it's suppose to continue throughout today. I've got plenty to do inside though.

Kay-I hope everything goes well with your appt. on Wednesday!

Welcome Gumdoctor!

Becky, did you get rain and rest?

I have my six month checkup with my oncologist and my breast surgeon on Wednesday. I'm expecting it to be a routine visit since I have no symptoms. I'm very grateful for that. I'm about 2.75 years out from diagnosis date. Every day without symptoms is a great day as far as I'm concerned.

Wishing everyone a good day.

emoticon The last 3 days have been beautiful, but they've worn me out! A lot of time outside enjoying the sunshine! Flower pots are all done! I still have flowers to plant in the yard, but it's still too early. Maybe next week. The low temps later this week are suppose to be in the 30's.

We have a chance of rain today, which we desperately need. It would be nice to hang out inside for a day and not feel guilty.

Have a great day!

Just found this thread today. Given everything I have been through in the past 2 yrs, I feel pretty good. Getting back into some of the things I used to like to do and finding some new things too.

It reached the 90's yesterday! It was great! We got a lot of outdoor work done and I picked up more plants. I'll get dirt today and get them planted. Unfortunately they will have to still be brought in at night though because the temps still get a bit chilly. We have another week or so before we no longer have to worry about frost.

This morning it is cooler and we have smoke around from the Canadian fires and another fire in MN. That should go away by noon.

Have a great day!

The weather has been crazy! It's been very chilly here in Tennessee the last couple days. Not horrible, but much cooler than a lot of the country. We had the heat on yesterday.

The counter top company has agreed that all the granite needs to be replaced in our kitchen. We are going to pick out something tomorrow. We are fortunate that we have been able to use our little second kitchen in the basement. It's kind of like being on vacation, but not leaving home!

Happy Friday! It's going to be hot here today. Highs will be getting close to 90! emoticon I'm loving it though especially since it's a one day event. Tomorrow it will be back down into the 60's.

I'm hoping to get out for 1 more run this week and then I'm heading over to my moms to cut her grass and put down mulch.

Have a great day!

I am looking for a new job. Slowly!

The weather we have been having is making everything come up so early this year. Including the weeds! I'm not going to complain though. I've been waiting for this time of year for awhile now.

I bought flowers yesterday. This weekend we will go and pick up the rest of the stuff. It looks like the weather should be nice.

Have a great day!

Becky, I'm sorry you are dealing with job loss and other stresses. Are you looking for another job? If so, I hope you find a great one.

I plan on moving the flower pot. I some other pots on the dock that mommy duck hasn't bothered, but I think I can keep her from using them.

Our spring has been wet and warm so everything seems to be coming up much faster than last year. Instead of buying flats of flower, I bought about five packages of nasturtium seeds and planted them where ever I normally use annuals. It will be interesting to see how they do in the different locations. I planted the seeds about a week ago and I just saw the first sprouts coming up yesterday. The big issue will be how they stand up over the summer in the various locations. Some are in full sun and others are in more on the shady side. I like experimenting with new things.

Can you remove the flower pot to encourage them to find another place? You could always put it back after mating season.

Yesterday started out good and then went down hill. I'm dealing with losing my job and got another blow yesterday. I guess it pretty much finally hit me what had happened. I'm better today, but still have that feeling in my gut that I need to some how get rid of. Thank goodness it was a beautiful day and I was able to get out and finish up my flower bed and go out for a run and enjoy the nice weather. Today should be another nice day. Possible rain later this afternoon and tonight.

Have a great day!

Becky

All the rest of the ducklings made their way out of the flowerpot/nest by yesterday evening. It feels strange not to be watching the flowerpot for duck activity. I'm thinking of discouraging the mom from laying eggs there again unless we see some sign that some of the ducklings survived.

Good Morning!

The sun came out yesterday but it was cold and windy. My DH got my flower bed dug out and we replanted the flowers we wanted to stay in there. Today I will put down mulch and then it is all done!

Kay-that's rotten about your counter tops. I hope they get replaced soon. Do you have a DNR person you can call about the ducklings? I hope they survive.

Sunshine today and it should be a little warmer. Near 80 by the end of the week.

Happy Sunday!

APONI, I hope your test goes okay on Wednesday.

Nana, that's great about the new therapist.

Becky, thanks for being so consistent here.

We had new countertops installed in our kitchen over a week ago. It turns out several of the pieces were apparently broken and glued back together before they installed them. Now, they are being very slow about acknowledging the problem and fixing it. We are fortunate to have a small second kitchen in our basement, so we aren't completely without a kitchen but it's still a mess.

Completely unrelated, we had a duck make a nest in a flowerpot in our backyard. About 12 ducklings hatched a couple days ago. This morning, the mommy is gone but there are still 5 ducklings in the nest along with 2 eggs that didin't hatch. We are hoping mommy is off taking care of the other ducklings. From what I have read, the mommy has most likely abandoned the rest. I took a shallow container with lake water and duck food and put it in the pot about an hour ago. The remaining babies are eating from the little container. If they are still alive this evening and mommy hasn't returned, we might try to capture them and raise them for a week or so and then try releasing them on our lake. I'm guessing their chances of survival are pretty low.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Kay from Tennessee

I have a test coming up, Wed. I actually had a bit of a anxiety breakdown when they initially scheduled it because it was going to be at a location where I had a pretty rough time of it last year. I didn't realize I was that upset until I was told to go back to that same place. I live in Charlotte, pretty good sized city so they didn't argue with me and just quickly changed the location. I'm getting the fear as it gets closer though. I'll be ok, I just need to push through this but last night I dreamed that my teeth were falling out and I was looking for my dentist but couldn't find the office.

I'm no psychologist but my gram was Irish so I don't need to be told what all of that means.

To be doubted that's the key. When I think I cant go anymore, I think about those who doubted me.

Friday was an ok day. One minute the sun was coming out and it was nice, the next it was cloudy and it looked like rain. It did remain dry though and I was able to get my moms grass mowed. We have rain in the forecast today so I will clean my house instead and tomorrow we will get outside to do some work.

Have a great Saturday!

It's cold here too, and too rainy for any mowing which needs to be done. My husband will have to mow another day after the storms pass. I can't drive the mower because of my back and my knees. Getting on and off is difficult now, and the rough ride is too much for me. I worry about him with his back and knees, but he loves to mow and won't give it up. I used to love to mow, but now I love to drive the cart through Walmart because I can't walk there on all the concrete when shopping. I thought I would be having knee surgery at the end of May, but it has been pushed back until I can have some metals testing to make sure I don't have any allergies to the nickel and testing for the glues that are used in total knee replacements.

I met a new psychologist yesterday, and I think she will be beneficial in helping me deal with the anxieties that have plagued me for years, made worse by having had cancer. As a second time around survivor the anxiety never really goes away. One just learns how to live with it. The anxiety of knee surgery and recovery now moves in along with being unsteady on my feet and fears of falling. The joy of growing older comes with a new set of parameters! But every day alive and participating in life is reason to smile and Spark, helping others when I can!

It was much cooler yesterday and this morning it is cold. It's going to be a cooler, windy day. We haven't had the rain that had been forecasted though. We could use more rain and I would prefer that it happens over night, but I don't think I have a say in it.

have a great Wednesday!

Yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day! We did have a couple of sprinkles in the morning, but the sun came out and it really warmed up. I had a really nice run and took in all of the Spring scents. The apple trees are in full bloom and they smell so good! The trees have small leaves on them now and everything is just so green. There was the smell of fresh cut grass too! I love this time of year! It's the time of year when everything comes alive again!

Kay-It is fun to be able to work on house projects and see the end result. I'd love to be able to redo our counter tops. Some day! I need a job first.

Yesterday wasn't a total washout. Hit and miss showers. The sun tried to come out at the end of the day. Today will be similar to yesterday. It looks like a cooler week ahead after today. As long as we have sunshine it'll be ok. I still have a lot of things to get done around here so my goal is to work on them this week and hopefully get most of them done!

Have a nice Monday!

Hi All,

Inga, congratulations on your new bike. That's a wonderful thing!

Our asparagus is almost over for the season. We got about 10 servings of it this year. It's been fun being able to gather it.

We have been very busy the past week taking out the old tile countertops in our kitchen (that was a mess to remove). The installers came on Thursday and put in new granite countertops. There's some more work to be done before we can put everything back and really use the kitchen. I figure it will be Tuesday or Wednesday before everything is done. While it's been a mess, I am exhausted but happy to be able to work on a big home repair project. It's the first one that I have actively participated in since having cancer. All the other projects since then, I have just been on the sidelines and not really doing much of the DIY work.

Wishing everyone a happy Sunday!

Kay from Tennessee

It wasn't a total wash out yesterday and this morning is cloudy but dry. I can't believe how the warm temps and then the rain made the leaves on the trees pop out. It is greening up around here and it's so pretty. Flowers are blooming. My bushes have leaves. Our lawn needs mowing again! Everything is alive again and I'm feeling alive again also!

Have a great day!

We have been enjoying summer weather! This morning we woke up to rain which was very much needed. We have gotten a lot of yard work done and I have one more flower bed to get to and then I will call it quits for that sort of stuff. We should have rain on and off this week so I'm going to continue with my indoor projects.

Have a nice day!

It was a very busy Saturday! We got a lot of yard work done, but there is still quite a bit to do. Today my DH will be painting our bedroom. I have a few things to do inside and then I will shift back outside to get a few more things done.

Have a nice Sunday!

Sorry your mom is so upset Kay. I know that you can reassure her and get her calmed down. I talked with my daughter last night and she listened patiently while I talked about my high anxiety. It helps to have a listening ear and your mom know that you listen and help.

A friend and I were just talking about asparagus. I didn't know it took so long to produce a yield. I'll see her tomorrow and share my new knowledge! Thank you for sharing, and enjoy every bite of your fresh spring veggies!

Because of SP I have been able to keep up my motivation to move and get back into the cleaning mode this spring, but my feet and knees are giving me so much pain and I'm anxious about having more surgery and doctors' appointments. The price of getting older and wearing out "parts" is wearing down my resilience. I need to see when I can schedule a knee replacement and some extra counseling appointments. emoticon

Sounds like everyone else is doing well, all things considered. Hang in there everyone!

Happy Friday morning!

Today, my plan is to go to line-dancing class and go over to assisted living where my mom lives. She's all upset because they want to raise her monthly charge by $500. They sent her a letter saying her level of care has increased. I'm not looking forward to getting this sorted out. I have a feeling I know what's going on, but I won't know for sure until I talk to the LPN that did the "care evaluation."

Kay-That's really cool! I love asparagus.

It was quite warm yesterday, but windy. My face and neck got sunburned while I was standing outside the restaurant talking with an ex coworker. Today I'm continuing my cleaning and DH is going to start painting our bedroom. Hopefully it won't take him long and we will get to move outdoors and start working in the yard.

Have a great Friday!

Becky

Becky, I know what you mean about the wind. We had some really windy days this past week where it was downright unpleasant even indoors because it was making so much noise.

Three summers ago when I got cancer, I planted some asparagus plants. When I created the asparagus bed, I had no idea if I'd live long enough to get to eat any. It takes two years before you can harvest the first batch and three years before it really starts to produce. I'm happy to report that hubby and I just had asparagus from our garden for the second time this season last night and there is lots more on the way! It makes me smile every time I look at that asparagus bed and incredibly grateful each time I've been able to gather up some spears.

Wishing everyone a good day!

Kay from Tennessee

The weather here is almost perfect! We've got highs in the upper 60's. The only downside is the wind. I'm accomplishing things around the house.

Keepgoing...glad you are feeling "lighter". I'm thinking that's a good thing.

I went to line-dancing class this morning. It's always good for around 5,000 steps on my Fitbit.

Wishing everyone a good day.
