Today the air was full of ozone and I am very tired. We are in the mid-90’s, temperature-wise today, but tomorrow, we’ll get more wind and plummet down to the LOW 90’s. J
One of my daily habits is to go read the news on Google News. I like to be able to pick and choose from what publication I read about certain topics. Plus, you can customize what news you get; for instance I pull in articles related to

As I became less fearful of the initial Esophageal Cancer diagnosis, I added a section to Google News to bring me all the articles about it. This is a double-edged sword in that I get many obituaries, but also get to read about new treatments and find out about other people and how they are progressing with this cancer.
One thing I was surprised about was the number of people that through the progression of the disease lose their ability to talk. I would truly be hurt to lose my power of speech, but worst of all would be to lose the ability to sing. Despite my lung disease having robbed me of a lot of lung capacity, I still enjoy singing, after a fashion. Singing lifts your spirits and makes your outlook on life so much brighter.
But, that’s something I’m not going to be concerned about. If it happens, I’ll find something else to lift my mood. I’ll paint more! I’ll write even MORE! I’ll play more World of Warcraft!
We just had a lovely dinner of Asparagus, Ahi Tuna and Texmati Brown rice with rye and barley. I really, REALLY love asparagus. When we were young, we used to have Sunday breakfast after church at my two Aunts' house. In the spring, Aunt Lottie would walk us down to a neighbor whose back garden was filled with asparagus and we would be able to pick enough for that night's dinner. It was a major treat, as it wasn't often in those days, that asparagus was affordable, OR available. I think it's still one of my very favorite veggies.
Here's a closer picture of my mom's sundial. Those petunias are growing like weeds; very colorful and lovely weeds, though. :) And all that riot of lavender in the background is very fragrant verbena.
Take care, all... have sweet dreams!
