Spring Break greetings to everyone! I know there are many who are reading from sunny Florida, warm South Carolina, and various other tropical places. As I write this update, I must say that Michigan has not been a bad place to be either! (Up until today anyway!)
Easter Sunday was glorious. Our worship service at Calvary was very meaningful and quite a celebration. My parents finished their drive from Florida to Michigan in our driveway and we shared a delightful meal with them. Randy and I prepared the meal together, something we both enjoy doing, but have not been able to so much of lately.
Monday morning we awoke to fog, rain, and mist, making for a perfect morning to sleep in a little bit. Numerous worms in our driveway and garage greeted us when we did get moving around. It didn’t take long for the sun to come out and start warming things up. I enjoyed the rest of the day by walking with a friend, getting caught up on some paperwork and housework, and then went out front and sat in a lounge chair. I finished a book, closed my eyes and listened to the birds chirp as the warm sun beat down on me.
I was looking forward to watching the final game in the NCAA tournament, but I got a little too sleepy and couldn’t quite make it. Randy said it was another great game.
I have been feeling quite good since the treatment on April 1. The side effects have been about the same as they have been all along. My hair is not growing back in, my fingertips, nails, and lips are extremely dry. The steroids do a number on my tummy as well as my skin color. I am more fatigued than usual. I find that I am very unsure of myself and I double-check nearly everything that I do. I am trying to “take it easy,” but I’m not convinced that I really know how to do that!
Looks like we are going to get a few days of rain around here before the beautiful spring weather returns. Enjoy your spring break, wherever you may be!
