HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY.
Open my tired eyes at 7 am today, the dog sat up from her bed on the floor next to ours and was hopeful. I just looked at her and she laid down again. I need to keep to the routine of checking who else is awake on FB. I was not disappointed. Nikki and Carla woke my fingers up and all their "pinging" responses woke Peter up. (Then he could go out with the dog, my master plan, and it worked.)
Quickest shower ever and getting ready so I could get my daily jab from Linda. THANKS LINDA. Then a breakfast of toast, juice and a banana. The sun is shining and the wind is blowing. I needed to get bundled up for my walk with Dale.
I arrived at Dale's house near Rönningesjö at 10 am. The sun is shining even brighter and not a cloud in sight. We set out on a 7 kilometer walk around the lake. Luckily for both of us, about halfway through we come to Rönningeby. Many friends have talked about it on FB but I had never been before. We were overjoyed that the cafe was open and was serving their famous waffles. What a treat to enjoy them without sharing with our kids. We were feeling luxurious and ordered the ones with cloudberry jam. DELICIOUS
The waffles gave us the energy we needed to complete our stroll around the lake. The shining sun and brisk winds kept us moving at a good pace. The sights along the way from a beaver's handiwork to a fresh water spring to drink from just added to the sense of peace and near normalcy. I take each day as it comes and enjoy the moment- especially when the sun which has been hiding behind the clouds for so long has finally shown itself. GLORIOUS
More than 3 hours after we started our walk I leave Dale's house and head home. THANKS DALE.
Felt excellent to take a little nap and fall asleep listening to my KICK ASS play list. A few hours of rest during the day keeps me going. I realize that I need to build up all the energy I can because Monday's chemo will drain me if I let it.
After my nap it is time for a snack. Peter cooked us up a piece of fillet Mignon and a little salad. Boy, am I lucky or what?
Tonight there will be tons of laughing when we are at Petra and Martin's house for dinner. Always a good time and good food with good friends. I can't wait. LOVED with LAUGHS
STILL READY FOR CHEMO ON MONDAY. I will start my short career as a druggie. Alas, these drugs will fullfil the purpose of evicting those cancer cells that chose the wrong place to hang out. FUCK CANCER.
SUNSHINE. LOVED. LAUGHS. FRIENDS. EXERCISE.
