scaredashell07 - love your quote! It is so true. The art of living simply and in the moment is to treasure the here and the now.

Butterfly1234 - Excellent quote as well....and we can all learn from that one.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Today's was Peoria's Race for the Cure. It was emotional and uplifting to have walked in the Survivor's parade for the first time. Yes I did cry (but not too much and at least I wasn't bawling).

How was all the Mom's Mother's Day yesterday? We spent the day shopping for stuff for my garden and I had a blast spending money. My DH has finally agreed to put in a dock for me on our pond. I'd go out in the paddle boat more if I felt safer getting into it without ending up in the pond with the snapping turtles!

I got to go visit with my Mom at the nursing home last night. I went later in the evening so I could surprise her. I brought her her favorite strawberry milk shake and we sat and had ice cream together. It was very special for both of us.

I am so blessed and I pray everyone of you are blessed also 🙏💜

Good luck on your rads journey Tappermom383.

WenchLori - so glad to hear that DH is going to install a dock for you. That'll be perfect this summer. Paddle boating does sound like fun!

Butterfly1234 - glad you got some flowers to enjoy. Keep up the motivation with your workouts. They do really help with fatigue. I am so tired today, but did manage to go for a 2 mile walk. I do feel better already.

I haven't planted any flowers yet in the pots on my balcony. I'm waiting until I get back from vacation. Can't wait - we leave for Key West on Sunday. That'll be the perfect celebration for finishing rads. Tomorrow is my LAST treatment!!!!

ILSunrise, yay for being at the end of your rad treatments! I agree, be very careful out in the sun, it'll drain you pretty quickly. Wear light weight long sleeve blouses and a hat if possible. I ignored these recommendations for the first few weeks but soon found out that's the wrong way to think. I love your quote of the day, beautiful!

WenchLori and Butterfly1234 - I will be careful in the sun. I bought a couple rash guards I plan to wear over my bathing suits and of course I have quite the selection of hats now thanks to chemo. My hair is starting to grow back so while I'm in KW, I'll probably ditch my wig most of the time since it'll be so hot. I'm not someone who lays out on the beach or by the pool and usually try to find an umbrella or some shade. But I hear you about the sun.....I'm sure it's going to zap my energy much faster than normal. I'll try my best to take it easy, but since I love the outdoors and being active I am already looking forward to yoga on the beach, stand up paddle board and bike riding.

This is how JJ fell asleep last night. He's silly awake or asleep! DD got up just long by enough to snap a few pictures for me. I love these little 🐒s to pieces!



It's pouring rain here and we have a crawfish boil to go to later this afternoon. I'll be bringing several umbrellas and some plastic sheeting. I think we can set our chairs on the edge to hold it down and keep the other end within reach. If it starts pouring we can run to our chairs grab the end of the plastic bring it up and over us and hold it down with our feet. It could work!

Praying everyone has a blessed weekend.

I got our pool all hooked up yesterday, what a job that was as I did it all by myself. Yeah, I over did it but it's done. DH wants me to let the rain do the filling, I don't think he realizes that we'll need 12-15" of rain to do that. Or that I can't start the pump and the cleaning unless the pool is full. This should make a funny video when the notion hits him lol
