Lucy HATES rain. She is reluctant to go out and does not enjoy being dried off before coming inside. She curls up with her pillows and snoozes while the rain falls outside.
Old lady looking rather like a puppy.
While Lucy curls up with her pillows on these rainy days, I curl up with a good book. For quite a while I had "chemo brain" which interfered with my relatively sharp mind. I could not focus on the books I would normally have enjoyed. So I switched to short stories, light British mysteries, and books with simpler plots. Thanks to Kindle, I did not have to invest large sums of money for these books. Now my brain has returned to normal (whatever that is) and I can once again enjoy books with complex plots and characters spanning long periods of time. It is amazing how important that is to me.
I made the mistake of trying to work on a knitting project I had started before chemotherapy. It was a complex pattern with squares within squares within squares and required constant counting. I made a major mistake and then made even more mistakes in trying to correct it. In anger I frogged (knitting talk for ripping out stitches as in 'rippit, rippit, rippit') the entire work and was left winding up the five skeins of yarn I had knitted. (Yes, hours and hours of work lost) I seem to have lost my knitting muse along with the work but perhaps that will return as well.
I have started the new chemotherapy regimen with a drug that has few side effects and I have not had any problem. The infusions are every three weeks and I can drive myself there and back. Both my car and I enjoy that.
Today's quote comes from businessman and philanthropist W. Clement Stone and seems appropriate for our time.
Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.
I am blown away by the Facebook posts that contain outright lies and are shared again and again. I want to refer the people to the facts. But they really do not want facts. They make excuses for our current White House resident, allowing as how he simply "misspoke." They love to perpetuate the untruths out in cyberspace about former President Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton. I wish they would search for the truth as deeply as they search for false information about immigrants.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
SPREAD THE TRUTH
OR AT LEAST BELIEVE THE TRUTH YOURSELF
