Just a short post today as I have places to go and things to see ...

Yesterday I received the good news from the biopsy and the scans ... no cancer ... I can't say I felt relieved or ecstatic, to be honest. I don't think I ever really thought there was a real possibility of it. Denial maybe. But no one in my family that I know of ever had had a cancer that was liable to be genetically caused. And more importantly, I didn't feel sick enough for it to be likely.

I didn't have enough cash to pay the $13.00 parking charge but the nice man at the machine changed the numbers and took my $10.

Then I ran some errands, bought some wool, stopped to say a belated Happy Birthday to Carlos, and came home to Kenya.

Today Tammy, Carlos and I are going to the first annual hand made bead exhibition, the Ottawa Guild Potters' Show, and the Third World Bazaar. Lots of beautiful colourful things to see ... no money to buy ... but a feast for the eyes anyway.

I will take my camera with me.

So glad to hear your health is just fine.
Enjoyed reading about your tootling around.
We did a show yesterday at a The Small Press Book Fair at the Jack Purcell Community Centre on Elgin.
What a mix of other activities were going on there that day -- Christmas Carol practicing and a baby exercise class (not at the same time) to name only two.

Life is good.

Barbara ... yes life is very good, isn't it? I like the Jack Purcell Centre. I used to live 5 minutes away from it and did aerobics there. It is truly a community gathering place. I hope you had lots of success and fun there.
