My New Dawn climbing rose has taken a little break from blooming but just last week, it was chock full of beautiful soft pink roses. They'll be back once the temperatures cool down a little. I've had to water twice a day on more than one occasion - in the morning and again in the evening. The poor hydrangeas just can't seem to get enough water and the bird baths are practically empty by the end of the day. The birds are constantly drinking and bathing themselves and I've even seen a few "arguments" as some birds are getting a little possessive. One robin in particular seems to think that it's their own and chases away any other bird that dares come by to have a drink.
Already the cicadas are buzzing in the trees and I'm enjoying these lazy hazy days. Not much is getting accomplished but isn't that what summer's all about? Most mornings, I like to sit on the porch with my coffee reading or daydreaming until it gets too hot to stay outside. I signed up for a jewelery making course taught by the wonderful Andrea Singarella and hosted by Jeanne Oliver. Andrea is an amazing teacher and I've already made a bracelet and a pair of earrings. More than a few hours have been spent browsing through Etsy for beads!
Just a little update on my recent test results ... I had my CA125 repeated and it went up even higher to 1575. I had a CT scan this morning of my chest, abdomen and pelvis and I see my oncologist next Wednesday to get the results. I'm optimistic that my scan will be clear and I'll be in remission!
See you soon!
