Those of you who have been following along about my son and his chemotherapy, will be happy to hear this. He had 6 strong chemo treatments with 3 weeks inbetween each treatment. After the very last treatment the Dr. ordered a petscan. The petscan revealed no cancer. Petscans are metabolic maps. His Dr. referred him to a radiologist and that Dr. didn't recommend radiation. We are thrilled! Everyone is happy and very thankful! He has numbness and tingling in his fingertips and also his toes from the chemo but hopefully the nerves regenerate there. Our bodies are amazing creations.
Above art is on a vintage postcard. Adorable.

How was your Christmas holiday? We had a white one here and it's still white out.
It really is beautiful but if you are not bundled up properly it feels like the North Pole. We run around outside looking fluffy but that means warm and the wind bypasses us.
I've started some new artwork and have a few listed in my etsy store Dictionaryreader. How many out
there are do it yourself-ers? I know there are many. So here is a little grouping of art
I did for all of us.
Happy New Year is soon! No dieting til then. ;-)
Seeds catalogs are my good friends!

Today the aromas that came from the kitchen
were unbelievable. Unbelievably good.
Making bread is so easy...it just takes about 4 hours
before you can put some butter on it and devour.
The ingredients are probably already in your kitchen.
Milk, egg, butter, flour, salt and yeast.
Then more flour, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
(I ended up making cinnamon rolls.)
Patience is required as they rise and the dough
fills out so that it melts in your mouth like cotton candy.
Full of goodness that you roll around your mouth
and then swallow. Bliss.
Who cares what the weather is outside
when all of this excitement is happening inside?
I didn't make the Cream Cheese Glaze they were
heavenly without it.
