Why does this look so delicious? Would it be the warm bread, the rich cinnamon and whatever that goopy stuff is? Hmmm. It’s from the genius baker at Half Baked Harvest. Her foods are simple yet amazing. I really want to try this for Christmas morning. It’s a sort of a Monkey Bread that she turned into a snowflake!
She also makes her own homemade pierogis…and her cookie boxes are just way too beautiful to eat…almost!
I am almost finished with this and it’s so good I am tempted to get another one…this is a series I could easily blast through. But then this one popped up with great reviews and the cover grabbed me and I am thinking it’s about Christmas so I think I will read it next!
Today is the day I like to plan out how the next two weeks will go…I had a blood test yesterday and I will see my Oncologist tomorrow at 9:45. I feel strangely calm. I think I have finally realized that this is my life…I will spend my life trying to be normal while I also try to dodge these scary cancer cells. I can pray and cry or I can pray and laugh. At least today I am not crying. Sort of…
I need to stop whining about my hair, too. I am sure everyone is sick of it. I didn’t realize how long it would take to actually not look goofy! I will probably not look like that first girl for a long long time…if ever. Sigh! But hopefully that middle girl will not be back with her headwrap. Whew!
I do feel sorry and sad for me at times…when I least want it to…that “why me” slips into my head. My life has been so blessed…I don’t want what I have now…I know too much about cancer and chemo and hospitals…it all still scares me! I get tired. My body hurts. I want my old life back…that is my cry…and I know that won’t ever be…it’s gone…really gone… and my new life is what I have to learn to cherish. Anyway…these are the thoughts that go through my head before meeting with my oncologist…we sit in a little room…he knocks and walks in…and I try to calm down and read his face…he never lies to me…he never candy coats the facts…I hope I don’t faint!
Off to workout…
