Low Maintenance 


To those who truly know me  ….

I’ve been called ridiculous & complimented on my table setting. Even a light lunch I so enjoy to present the meal. Okay there are plenty of us. My new regine is low maintenance. I frequently would become annoyed looking at paper plates on my daughters countertop. ” Don’t worry I’ll do the dishes or Run the dishwasher!”

Often I’ve peeked in her cabinet to find an appropriate place for them. I’m totally serious… my Mom loved them as well … 

Well look what has arrived!

 In my previous encounter with chemo I stupidly pushed to kelp all in order. Over exhausted myself in light housekeeping…. 

Whew !

Done with all that! 

Enjoy the day! 


I’m often told of the intensity of my strength in many complimentary words of love. Yes I have an undefined strength, a true gift, however it’s a statistic in my composition of me. I’ve overcome &’survived many obstacles … the power of me is defined by those who surround my world, in good times and bad, happy or sad I find it a necessity to be humorous with positivity, laughter is the best medicine. 

I’m truly aware of my loved ones … kindred spiritual acknowledgment in they’re presence and feelings… one must be … one option is selfdefense from negativity. You know ” One bad Apple?” Lol 

No no no! I will not be among the spoils. My Dad has left his mark so deeply in my soul, those who knew him would agree. If I tried to describe him .. I honestly and always state ” if one could imagine Jesus & Leonardo DaVinci combined in one ” Yes he is my Dad. He knew me well … in my worst moments his words of wisdom ring through my mind to satisfy any doubts & fears.

” Kid with a strong backbone & sense of humor you can get through anything in life! ” 

Words to live by …. 

I pray my children remember and honor him, of which I’m sure … for they are Amazing, they are the greatest of gifts, my lifeline & soul. 


My Blog

This is me a year ago. It marked a full year I’d finished 24 weeks of Chemo. It was miraculous to be physically back to myself. I fought a good battle; with unremarked strength, an equipoise of endurance & an abundance of support. Unfortunately, the previous few years I neglected my Blog, I had a good startup two years ago when I needed to vent the expirience of being diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. 

Being spiritual it comes to mind many of my utmost lifestories consists of duplicating each event. This week I learned my cancer returned….. I never cared for this photo yet I never deleted it. Looking at it momentarily I totally relate to my state of mind. I recall thinking of this day. 

I’m taking advantage of a chance to dedicate time to do the dailies…..  I hope previous posts may have been beneficial to others battling cancer. I’d like to touch many more warriors & perhaps correspond with them. 

I’m suppose to be in Europe with phenomenal girls enjoying a “Life Celebration ” …. Thank you United Air for a full refund…  would have been my first Visit  … Easter in Paris the Chocolatiers, Monet, Louve, Eiffel Tower, Carmen the Opera in Versailles…. then Rome, Florence & Capri. A week prior to departure I had a feeling I wasn’t well… of course it was confirmed. Life is an equipoise …. my second granddaughter was born. We were in the same hospital God is Good. 

I’m currently dealing with my new port and Chemo treatments begin tomorrow.

Battle On!

Forever Flowers 

Saddened coming home to find my dwarf palm had not survived…. 

A gift from a few peeps visiting for a Sunday dinner almost fifteen years ago.

I selected dried flowers from memories & friends…… 


Sausage Stuffing 

As the cool weather approaches…. I find a need to keep my oven warm LOL 

Beef fish chicken & especially pork is delightful stuffed! 

I use Italian mild sausage ( I love the seasoning) remove casing, in a hot skillet lightly greased, fry down all the fats to a crumbled bacon look… 

3 eggs ( the rule is 3 eggs per pound )

Add 1/2 – 1 cup of breading ( your choice)  this recipe I’m using Italian seasoning & adding scallions, artichoke hearts & red 🍇

Yes grapes! 

Mix & Stuff 

Yummy! Stuffed Pork Chops

Recipe will follow…


Never look back on your past without a smile.

Never lose your equipoise 




Laying at the pool…

New bathing suit & hat enjoying a new book….. He comes home unexpectedly with a friend; I make a comment of looking old & fat…..

Don’t say that! I don’t see you like that at all & if you start saying so….

I will
