The sun is shining and there are beautiful flowers blooming here in Menlo Park! This is a picture of me and our dear friend, Pam, who has taken such good care of us.
Jud and I are happy because tomorrow is his last day of SBRT radiation. Look at those peach poppies...have you ever seen anything so pretty?
It has been so nice to stay with Pam and Barry. No, this is not their kitchen, but it is a nearby bakery. Isn't that a yummy site?
They have these really interesting gnarly trees here n California. I have always wondered what they were, even when we lived here thirty-five years ago. Today I found out from Barry that they are pistachio trees!
Jud and I took a walk to the "village" today to do some looking and shopping. On our way, we saw this great sign, for a Russian Orthodox Church.
Tucked way back in the lot was this teeny tiny little church, covered by the shadows of more gnarly trees! It looks like it is large enough for about ten people! I hear it is pretty inside and has beautiful windows.
On Saturday, we fly home to St. Paul. There we will again be encountered with the cold and three feet of snow. However, home is home and we are glad to be done with this part of the journey. Jud will start chemotherapy again on Tuesday and we will come back here in four to six weeks to see if Jud's tumor has shrunk to the point that he will qualify for surgery. We are praying.
I am anxious to go to my craft room and make messes! Hopefully I will have something to show you all soon.
I want to thank you all for supporting me. You have made a difficult time much more bearable with your words of kindness and support.
In summary, blogland rocks!
