Daniel must miss winter. He still insists on going out in his hat and gloves from time to time.
How do you like my handsome boy? How do you like my careful framing?
Because people asked ... of course, some makeup and a cuter top would help make it an outfit!
A little update, also for those who asked. I'm feeling OK (OK = a little run down but otherwise fine) since finishing my chemo session Tuesday, but I'm trying to stay away from big groups and people with colds and other potential sources of infection. Every two days, I change the dressing of my Hickman catheter and flush out the lines with heparin to protect against clotting. But really, I'm trying not to think about cancer very much. My sister left Friday after a very nice (but short) stay. Now I'm spending a lot of time with my family and a few friends — and in the garden. For the past two weeks, we've brought the paper and coffee out to the patio and enjoyed a quiet Sunday morning there.
Or maybe not always quiet. Stressful, sometimes. Work has begun on the fence (photos forthcoming). It's pretty exciting! But at the moment we have no fence at all — just tall cedar posts, eight feet apart — which means it's really hard to keep Daniel from running into the alleyway. Someone always has to chase him. Or keep him busy with a shovel.
