Pollyanna! Where are you?

Feeling a little low this morning. I’m sure I’ll feel better after the ibuprofen kicks in. I’m sure I’ve posted about this in the past, it just takes on a little more meaning these days.  I few months ago I started getting fevers occasionally. Not a lot, maybe once every ten days or so. Most of them seemed to hit at night. Which makes for a miserable night of sleeping. Have one now. They never go high, just 100 or 101 and they seem to hang around for ten or twelve hours. And of course  you’re achy and headachy. At least now I can be reasonably sure that they are a symptom of the cancer. So hopefully they will be gone soon. I don’t think I’ve talked much about the side effects or symptoms outside of private posts. Have I? Have I been whining? I dunno. Soon I’ll go back and change them from private. I guess my thoughts on it are; if someone else ever stumbles on these who is dealing with this, maybe they can benefit from my experience.  Maybe not. 


I want to go buy this couch today.  It’s very inexpensive and on top of that $200.00 off right now. I like the little chaise end piece. It can be moved from either side. We only have two recliners in our living room. We went through like three sets of living room furniture. Every time we bought one, a dog would eat it. Different dogs too. So, it’s been a few years I think it’s time to try again. I want to have a place in the living room to be comfortable when I’m stuck at home.

Pictures from my cell. Sorry for the repetition if you’re on my facebook. 🙂 If you’re not on my facebook, please feel free to find me, I think we all know I’ve given up on privacy in my life. 

I know it looks like we drink all of the time! I swear we rarely do outside of home. But there you go. Sangria at Don Pablo’s. I’ve developed a liking for sangria in restaurants because it’s usually cheap and full of healthy fruit!


This is my daughter and a bird at her work. We took her food. My daughter, not the bird.


We saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes yesterday. It was really very good. I found the first hour difficult to watch. We also went to Costco for the first time, but I forgot to take any pictures!


Gluten Free brownie thing. My sister, daughter and I went to lunch on Friday at the tea-house.

Quiche sampler with salad.


My Kates and I. Not the best picture I think, but we don’t have that many together so you have to look at it. I love the color of my shirt, and my sister is wearing the same color.  However she has beautiful blue eyes that glow when she wears it. 


Speak of the devil! 🙂 My sister.


Enjoy your day.




When I hopped on my Desktop this was the random desktop background.  Funny because windows did a perfect edit.
