Family Dinner:)

We have had Skype for a while and I have had my Ipad for almost 6 months but never thought about putting the two together until last night. Rob was here doing laundry and we were ordering Chinese for dinner. Thought we should call Jen and we could all have dinner together:)

Fall scenery

Wind and rain have caused the landscape to change! Where there were reds and yellows, there is now nothing. The green oak leaves are now brown and falling like rain!




The milk weed plants were being blown to the heavens this afternoon!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

The emphasis this month is on Breast Cancer. As a two time survivor, I feel this should be a year long emphasis!!!

For those who do not know, I have had breast cancer twice. In 1994, calcifications were found during a mammogram screening. I had a lumpectomy followed by radiation. In 1997, again during a mammogram screening, it was found again. This time I had a mastectomy. The second time I felt as if my world was caving in. I was so frightened that it was back. The good news was, the lymph nodes were clear and the doctors felt  the mastectomy was all I needed. I am grateful for the information I received from the American Cancer Society and have participated in many fundraisers since then to raise money for cancer research. Tackling this disease has changed a lot since I went through it. Early detection is key and my advice to everyone is to get a MAMMORAM!! They are not that bad and can make a world of difference in your diagnosis.

Anyway, here is a little pink card for anyone going through this now!

Pumpkin Hunt 2012

The rain had stopped and dinner was in the oven --- just enough time for a trip to the Pumpkin Patch! No sooner did we head out to the field than the rain began! And it was already so muddy from the rain we have had today.

Rob was going to pick the first pumpkin he saw but he did wander around a bit before choosing this guy!
