patience patient ~

Patience patient ... This is what I keep telling myself.  I hate to admit it; but I miss being busy!  I have so much to do; but don't have the stamina yet to get it done.  I didn't think that the chemo would have this kind of effect on me.  I'm so tired all the time and doing something so trivial like sweeping the floor wipes me out.

The leaves are turning their beautiful shades of red and gold ...

These are some pics from prior years ... but they all look the same this time of the year.
 ~ the apples are ripe and getting turned into sauce and pies.  I just love my old applesauce colander with the wooden pestle.  It works better than the newer kind of sieves.  My sauce from one of the trees in the yard is always so pretty and pink from the red apple peels.

We've been seeing a few deer around ... checking out the apple trees in the yard.

Hopefully, next week I can start sitting back at the TajMelHal and see what's coming around there.

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. I am so sorry that you are wiped out. I have had that kind of fatigue from a chemical, too, and it is miserable. I hope you start getting your energy back soon. Blessings- xo Diana

  2. such beautiful photos, please take care, rest is what you need,

  3. I know it must chaff to not be able to do all you have done. And you are probably a terrible patient, but you must BE PATIENT! LOL

    Love you and the photos, our prayers are still with you. Take care of Slim's girl.

  4. If you're tired, sleep. Your main job is to get yourself back to feeling good. Hugs and prayers!

  5. Chemo does wipe you out. Just hang in there. Our trees aren't turning yet. How nice yours are.

  6. Wishing you to feel better soon.

  7. goodness; you already got so much done - lessen the pressure on yourself and remember to take time to smell the autumn leaves ;)

  8. Everything has a way of getting done as much as it needs to, don't rush it and tire yourself out. Maybe it's a good time to experiment with your camera shots, create collages, suggest some fun novels to read while cozied up to the fire, write up some great fall recipes for everyone to try.

  9. Your "job" right now is to take care of yourself. Put that great work ethic into resting and healing. I know that is hard - when you are so use to doing so much. But, this too will pass...Blessings from Ringle.

  10. Patience! Arrrggghhh. So hard to be patient. So you keep up the good work of being patient.

  11. Well if anyone has earned a break, it's you ~ so stop fighting it and rest! Rest - catch up on art work, writing, reading etc. Things that don't weigh a ton to lift - exercise your mind and let your body heal. Don't make me release the flying monkeys Sis!!!
    'love & hugs from afar'

  12. I understand the difficulty with patience but not the effects of kimo that you're enduring...hang tough sis, ride everywhere with Slimmer and watch nature like you love so much.
    prayers constantly coming for you, girl. Loveya, ya know.
    Live it full.
