Living an involuntary hermit's life. Working towards living a healthier, gluten-free, hopefully cancer free life with my 2 dogs, 3 chickens and loving family.

Living with intention

When stumbling through life isn't good enough anymore..... decide to be yourself and enjoy life, and pay attention to Gods gifts all around.

A Belated Thank you

I had every intention of writing a big long post about this past weekend.  Lots of pictures taken, despite the rain.  And I will post all about the Oktoberfest but in smaller posts.  I got a lot of pictures of the dances, Aunts and Uncles, cousins, friends.  But this morning I woke up with a humdinger of a cold I caught from Max.  So I will take my time with the posts the next few days. 

I did want to acknowledge and give a big thank you to God though.  I catch colds very easily, but last year, while going through about 8 months of chemo, this is during all the flu scare, I couldn't get flu shots during treatments and was nervous about getting sick.  Well I never even got a sniffle.  After treatments were over, I did get a bad cold last January and had a surgery postponed, but when it would have been very dangerous for me to catch a cold or flu, God protected me. 

So now my throat hurts, my chest and head hurt and I have a cough and runny nose, but that's OK.  I am treating it with Zicam and trying to not get too bad, I have a special weekend planned for my mom's 80th birthday.  But today I will write my posts about Oktoberfest in small doses and just be thankful.
