Finding Inspiration on Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness is Homemade party

Goodbye spring, hello summer!!! Have you been enjoying it? I sure am! I even started making some new dishes to bring to family cookouts and get togethers. This is my favorite time of year.

Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party Speaking of making new recipes, this party is sure to have a lot of great ones. You have to check them out!

Happy Thursday dear friends. I hope you are all enjoying your summer. I know that Christmas in July is a thing, but when I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday, not only where they putting out Christmas stuff, there was a ton off fall items. Yikes, I am not ready for all of that. 

How do you feel about that? I guess if you are a crafter that sells, you have to start early, but it seems way too early. Let me know your thoughts.


Many of my features come from your comments. Don't forget to leave our Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you might become one of my features for next week.

Welcome to the party.  Here it is July already. This summer is going by so quickly. How are you celebrating July 4th? 
We are just staying home and going to grill out. Nothing special. 

I thought I would update you on my journey - I am at my half way point in my 12 session treatment. I am doing pretty good. The first three days after treatment are the best days, then it usually hits me like a bad case of flu. That lasts for a few days and then it is time for the next treatment. The lumps have been reduced by over 50%. That is good news. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead.

Happy Thursday dear friends.  I hope you are all doing well and enjoying some summertime weather. We finally had some well needed rain yesterday. We have been so dry. 

I am having a procedure today to try to figure out what is wrong with my port. It is a device that was placed under the skin on my chest so they can draw blood and administer the chemo drugs. 

It worked the first time, but they could not get blood the second time but could give me the drugs. For the third series of drugs it was not working at all. I will find out what is the problem. They may have to do surgery to replace it. We will see.

Outdoors on You Are the Star

Outdoors on You Are the Star

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was really nice. We had to work on our water line to the pump. Actually, it was the wiring to the pump. We had no water on Monday morning and hubby was able to get it working but when we called someone out to see what the problem was, they said it was electrical. Of course, that morning Hubby had taken his brother (an electrician) to the airport. Fortunately, he guided us and we ran a new line and hubby hooked it up and all was well.

Happy Memorial Day. I hope your weekend is filled with family, friends, great food and relaxation. We have been sort of celebrating all weekend. Both of our neighbors are away and the weather has been hot. Lots of pool time (not much for me). My BIL cooked on Saturday, we had wings on Sunday and I am cooking for Monday. 

It has been so nice spending time with my BIL and SIL since they are leaving on Tuesday to head back up to West Virginia. We will miss them.

I hope you enjoy your day!

Happy Thursday dear friends. I want to thank all of you for the kind words about my cancer. You have all been so thoughtful and I appreciate it so much. I had my first treatment and it went well. I know that it gets worse but for now I am doing good. 

We were able to take 5 days vacation. We went to Orlando to a resort and spa. It was close to home. My BIL and SIL went with us and we had so much fun. My SIL and I spent 2 sessions at the spa and we had some wonderful dinners out. 

Thank you again for all of your heartfelt wishes. I know that some of you are cancer survivors and you give me inspiration. I will keep you posted.
