Today my dad would have been 80 years old.
Even though he is no longer with us I wanted to acknowledge his birthday.
Love you Dad.
This quote is great if you look at everything this way it makes you understand people better.
It is quite hot here in Texas and the humidity seems to make it worse.
My sister Sheri and I walk 3 – days a week and we start walking at about 7:15 a.m. and it’s already hot.
We are determined to get in our exercise so we will persevere and wait patiently for the cooler fall temperatures.
We found a park nearby where the squirrels are all very friendly so yesterday we took some food for them some chicken scratch corn and sunflower seeds and they were quite grateful.
I would love to photograph them but carrying my camera on a walk like this is too much. Maybe I will try my phone but I am never crazy about the pictures I take with it.
When you can add natures beauty and the wildlife to your walks, it really makes your walks even more special.
I rang the bell for my last radiation treatment today and they gave me a graduation certificate.
The radiation will continue to work for about 5 more weeks even though I am no longer getting treatment.
The skins peeling good and no longer itching and the new skin looks really good.
I feel like a new person today. Honestly, I was not prepared for all the emotions that would go with this day.
Tonight my husband and I are going out to eat to celebrate.
Tomorrow my sister and I have a day planned we’re going to have a little fun. Next week our daughter Jeanelle and her kids and I will do something fun. Then another day I have a lunch planned with a really close friend of mine.
I am relieved it is over and I pray Cancer never comes back again.
Life is good and I will always fight like a girl.
The first picture is the mama goat before she had the babies.
These are the first babies born on the Shady Acres Rosharon farm.
These pics were taken at 2 days old. The mama goat was a first-time mom and she had a boy and a girl both healthy and happy.
They both have moon spots, the boy has waddles and they are both just adorable. Waddles are the things hanging from his neck his mom has one too and many people love these.
If you look back I bet you can guess which one the dad was lol.
The next baby goats should be born in May.
The second week of radiation went pretty good I was nowhere near as tired.
I had one painful day where it felt like a stabbing pain under my arm other than that all was good. I used an ice pack to help with this.
The third week has been good and I am a little more tired this week. I am trying to stay busy to keep my mind off of being less than halfway through with this.
Week 4 – 5 is when the burns generally start to happen next week will be my week 4.
Next week I have a bone scan for a baseline before I start the hormone blockers in 3 1/2 more weeks. I made sure to schedule it right after my radiation appointment you have to coordinate these things are you are back and forth all the time.
I ordered myself the prettiest necklace for breast cancer. My sister bought me a tee shirt that says “Rebel with a cause”.
She and I get together one time a week for shopping and we are truly enjoying ourselves. Sometimes we even go out to lunch and make a long day of it.
We might go to Resale stores, Tuesday Morning, Habitat Restore, Hotel Liquidators, Garage Sales or shop auctions online needless to say we have found some pretty cool stuff.
I won a beautiful dresser at an auction for $100.00 it was brand new 8 drawer white dresser it’s in my office to give me more storage. The retail of this dresser was $350.00.
My sister found me a plastic cow head I will be doing something with just not sure what way I want to go with it. Some people paint them wild colors, some use the silver or gold leafing on them, some glue fabric on them. Some people spray paint them there are just so many ways to go with this plastic cow head.
She also found me 3 of the wooden room service trays they are HUGE I used the liquid sander on them to remove the varnish and I have them primed. I know one for sure will be getting a liquid paint treatment I love the look of the paint and the cells. Of course, I had to buy the silicone and the Floetrol to do it with. Another craft to get into lol.
I am still fighting like a girl.
Chickens, Chickens everywhere.
The first chickens are maybe 11 months the second ones are about 2 months old.
The one by herself Little Chicky adopted our daughter we think she’s the same kind as the second ones.
The older chickens lay eggs now so that is a good thing.
