About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Friday among the Grapes

Yesterday was such a nice day.  Went with bff to visit her sister, Sandy.  We sat outside listening to the birds sing and smelling the sweet scent of flowers.  She has got a lot done with her house but there is so much left to do!  I am sure, bit by bit, it will all get done.
Sandy's yard is full of fruit trees and vineyard!  She has apples, plums, grapes, rasberries.  I told her when they are ready to harvest, we'll be there!
We saw this cute little frog on the plum tree.  At first glance, it looked like some kind of growth on the tree!
We had a nice lunch and looked for a thrift store but they were closed on the 5th.  So, we stopped at a few garage sales.  I came home with a dishcloth.
Changing my profile picture.  I am older and heavier, so here goes.
 How do I change my profile picture?  It says I have to have a square image and I don't know how to do it.

Your photo looks pretty square to me. LOL I am not sure how to change it either.

You look lovely! I think if you google it you are going to get some answers.
I'm glad that you got to spend some time around nature and around love ones.
