A Winter Warm Up...

Yes, that’s what the weather man promises, and I’m looking forward to it. The wind this morning was brittle. But, I must also mention, he promised a drop back into the deep freeze later in the week with his next breath. Oh, well, life is full of ups and downs, isn’t it? As I type this, my mother is taking a nap on my sofa. A month ago she was diagnosed with Lymphoma and had her first Chemo treatment today, which she came through with flying colors! It’s been a month of test, scans, biopsies, and doctor visits, and she’s been a real trooper through it all. She’s 79 and her oncologist keeps telling her this would be a whole different ball game if she was old and frail. Everyone is very optimistic about the final outcome, and we’re extremely thankful for the wonderful care she’s received from all of the doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other medical professionals. Thank you to all of you who have included her in your thoughts and prayers and put her on your prayer lists. It’s sincerely appreciated.

On the writing side, I’ve finished book one of the three book contract, and having loads of fun with book two and three. These two stories complete a duet of Undones about two widows and the local marshal and his deputy. And I’m still plugging away on the gold mine story. Life is good.

I’m off now to make supper and then Mom, DH, and I are going to watch Secretariat.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and be kind to yourself. You are your own best friend.
