A bit of Nature & Doctors Appointment

Road side wildflowers in blue

Where I stole an apple YUMMY
Open Space Project , I saw about 15 bluebirds here on the fence Sunday

Our Little Nestle in the Singing Woods, shutters are ALL painted finally

I've been trying to take a walk each day. The two days it rained all day, I stayed in. Today is such a lovely day, I set out with my NEW camera. ( I used my Best Buy Rewards to get it after the doctors yesterday)

Yesterday was my plastic surgeon appt. I will get the rest of my reconstruction surgery on Nov. outpatient procedure, but I will be asleep. I'm excited about getting it all over with.

This coming Monday the 15th, I have another head MRI. I will find out those results on Wednesday afternoon the 17th. Even though I'm on the road to recovery, I still need your prayers.
I 'd like to ask for prayers for my friend Dee who is having a bi -lateral mastectomy , this Friday , Sept 12th, she is very anxious about it and needs some peace in her life. I know how much your prayers helped me, so thank you for praying for her.

Life continues to be a bit hectic with all of us here, but I must say, each day I seem to feel better and stronger, despite the hub bub..

  21. Boy..ya know! Women!! hrrmmphh. Tie em up by the ankles to drag em by horse through town and they'll notice the one shutter that didn't get done before they got tied up. Drag em thru chemo, remove their sacred female organs, drag em further thru radiations X many....turn the horse around and let their head hit the nearest building as they go by, remove 6-7 brain tumors by laser and keep draggin em...when the horse rider is too exhausted to ride anymore and gives up draggin her behind, they get off the horse and crawl to the nearest bunk BUT the woman that's been dragged aaallllllll through town and back again....goes and finishes the job she'd been dragged away from...SHUTTERS!...she finishes the job and stands back brushing herself off as nothin ever serious happened and says..."The shutters are finally finished!" Ok, girl, do you think you're about ready to let go of some of the everyday stuff yet?! Deenz? Are ya listenin girl? (church)

  22. I will say prayers for your Friend!
