First thing's first - all systems were go today, for round #7. My liver rallied, my mammogram and ultrasound were clear, and best of all I only have one more session of chemo to go!! And I pleaded that it be neupogen free, so if my white blood cells are too low, we will wait for them to naturally rebound, rather than put me through another one of those bone crunching, fever making injections. whew!
The hospital I have my chemo in is Phelps, in Sleepy Hollow, NY. Just up the street is one of my favorite places to stroll, as I love cemeteries! This one, The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, is a special one, as it is one of the oldest in our country, and is the resting place for Washington Irving, author of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow - the town's namesake.

I am tired and would rather not type/talk much, so I'll simply take you on a pictorial stroll through the grounds...
I love these angel faces
inside - revealed by a camera flash
some mausoleum doors are nicer than
our living, home front doors!
no redos here, when typos happen:
Last, but not least, an update on my miracle pepper plant!!
For those of you that are newer to my blog,
I introduced my pepper plant back in the fall of 2008.

You can read about it's humble beginnings here and part two here, or do a search with "pepper plant" and follow it's complete journey! Started from an apparently sloppily eaten salad, this plant has nurtured me through back surgery, hand surgery, breast cancer, rainy days and sunny ones. It keeps on producing delicious sweet peppers. The mom plant is beginning to look a bit haggard, but she's got a virtual tree trunk to support her, and the 'babies' are making strides, bearing fruit of their own.
Nature sure is somethin' somethin'!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm not sure when I will next be able to post artwork next, due to troubles I'm having with my hands. So I'm going to take a few days, at least, to see if they improve. Wishing you all well!
