Red rose Youngs Vineyard 2013 _02

Story behind foto: It’s Friday, weekend is only a few hours away and I feel like a nice tall glass of red wine – Zin. 

“Red red wine you make me feel so fine

You keep me rocking all of the time

Red red wine you make me feel so grand

I feel a million dollars when your just in my hand…”

What wine do you prefer?

Story Behind Foto: I am back! I apologize for my hiatus, as I mentioned in my last Foto Friday post my family has been going through some changes, but I failed to mention the entire situation. After thinking about it long and hard, I decided to share my experience. I will not be mentioning specifics because I have not discussed with my family, but I will share my experience as the daughter and caregiver of a cancer patient.

Yes, we (my family) and I have been stricken with a cancer diagnosis. As you can imagine such news is not taken lightly in fact, it is quite the opposite. Today marks the one-month post-surgery day. The extensive surgery area is healing well and slight movement has been restored. However, the next phase will be the dreaded chemotherapy. As of now, we do not have an exact start date but we do know treatment will be for a little over a year. Yes more than a year!

Therefore, in the midst of it all, I am trying to stay strong and positive, but some days are better than others.

Thank goodness for early spring and beautiful blooming trees all around us. It makes it easier to remain positive and strong when nature is so beautiful and young, sort of like an innocent child worry-free and unaware of the harsh reality of adulthood and aging parents.

Here I share a foto taken at my parents’ home. I believe this is one of their nectarine fruit trees in their front yard.

Happy Friday,

There’s only a few hours left of Cyber Monday! Which means I need to go get my shop on. I’ll have to report my finds later on this week. Tell us, what deals have you scored?

Happy Shopping!!!
