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.

A Trip to Door County

Okay, so I had a change of plans....again!  It was so beautiful out when I got out of church. My sister had asked if I wanted to do something, so she picked me up and we went up to Door County.  Now Door County is the thumb of Wisconsin.  See the mitten with the thumb?
Our first stop was for some lunch in Fish Creek.  We just had a fish sandwich on toasted rye, but it was so nice to be able to eat out doors!
There are many interesting shops in Door County.

I didn't have my camera with me and these photos are taken from a few years back.
It was just a very relaxing time.  Door County is famous for their cherries.  I bought some cherry walnut bread, some soup and sauce mixes, but refrained from the fudge!  It was good to taste the samples though!  I am not into drinking wine, but decided that if one drank samples of wine at all the wineries up there, one could get quite tipsy!

I had not been to Door Co all summer until last week. We drove up and had lunch at Al Johnson's in Sister Bay. Gotta love that place. It was almost cold the day we were there and if felt like Fall was not far off.

Hope you have a great week, Debbie. xo Diana

Often times the spur of the moment times are the very best. It was nice that you could go with your sister.
