Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

A lot happens in a year and a half

Wow! I have been re inspired to blog again.. A lot has been going on in my simple farm life since my last post.  I'm not sure how I got so far away from it..
So I will begin with January 2015
I went to my annual mammogram appointment and results showed a suspicious lump.. One I had discovered just a week prior.... After ultrasounds needle biopsy, more ultrasound treatments I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer! Oh my.. Of course I was shocked!  These things just aren't supposed to happen to me...well long story short after waiting for test results March 5 th I had a mastectomy.  Quite an alarming situation... I then had an expander placed to prepare for reconstruction June 5.
Another journey I had never taken.. I'm waiting for the next step.. Filling the expander with saline solution a few times to reconstruct the breast.. Pain? Oh  hell yes... Tingling,? yes , numbness? Yes
I am cancer free!!!! My type of cancer had not affected any  lymph nodes so no radiation nor chemo.
Yay!!! And I'm doing pretty good today. Thanks to the love and support of my husband, children, other family members and the greatest friends helping and praying for me.
Tomorrow is the 4th of July and I can celebrate Independence Day as well as being cancer Free!!!
Until next time friends... Play safe and ladies don't forget to get your yearly breast exam.

Time Flies

Where  did this month go?
In a day it will be May.. I have been busy I must admit with Wildtree tastings.. and taking a trip to California to visit Clay's sister. ( We were getting tired of  cloudy cold temps here) Our Scenic trip to California was gorgeous. Now back and I have been planting the flowers pots. and decorating around the garden shed.. Where there is straw under the wicker set will be bricks, ( I talked my neighbor out of them when they removed their fireplace) I have to go get them yet,,, I have my eye on a couple flowering trees too to strategically place for some shade around the shed. I have an umbrella ( its there on the couch) but take it down when the wind is blowing as it did today. I want the flowers to grow quickly and hope the ones I have in mind will frame this spot where I can escape to dream up more projects, reflect on life and just get away to when I need a break.. I have a vision in mind and its going to take a whole lot to bring it all together. Do you do this? I Clip photos, drawings and pictures from magazines of what my "dream shed " should look like.. It never comes  together quickly I keep reminding myself.  I do have another quick trip to Washington May 8th for only a week.. To visit my Mom and 3sisters for Mother's day and then Ill be back to start on the veggie garden.. that's awhole other project...  BTW  I had to put the "girls" into a bigger caged area to keep them out of the garden and My Dream place... They didn't like that much but are getting used to it...and egg production has not halted because of it...thankfully.  So until I get back to these projects.. take care and be good to yourself..
