There are lots of things I like about living in Colorado,
and one of my favorites is that for the first time in my life I am able to have a big garden!
(It’s possible to have a garden in Virginia; I just didn’t have the yard!)
Less than a week after arriving here my mom and I planted seedling tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, yellow squash, carrots (CARROTS!), zucchini, watermelon, strawberries (!), basil, parsley, chives, onions, and cucumbers.
And I’m happy to say that the garden is doing GREAT!
We get lots of sunshine here and tons of rain – usually it storms in the afternoon.
I think it’s been really good for me to have this garden as I’ve been going through the cancer ordeal. It’s something I really look forward to – every morning and every evening I do my “inspection” to see what’s changed. To see this life – so vibrant and thriving – well, it just gives me a lot of hope.
These photos were all taken on my iphone – not too bad!
On another front – my endocrinologist and I reviewed my pathology report yesterday and she confirmed that my prognosis is excellent. I was stage 1 and because it was caught early and the tumors were small, she wouldn’t expect me to have a recurrence. I am SO lucky. As Mike pointed out in the comments section of my last post, it is vital to check out anything unusual you notice in your body. Don’t wait!
