Happy New Year to One and All!
This will probably be a shorter blog than usual, but I will try to hit the high spots of our week.
We saw this beautiful snow capped mountain last week. So glad we weren't close to these mountains though
On December 28th Jim had a tumor removed from his right wrist. The doctor had said it was definitely a cancer, so he treated the site before he dressed the wound. It was hard trying not to worry while we waited for the results to come back. Today we got the wonderful news that the tumor was a pre-cancerous keratinoma, and he will not need further treatment for it. We could not stop grinning all morning!!! I cried tears of relief and joy after the phone call. Thank all of you for the prayers. I am so grateful to our awesome God.
Here's the kids celebrating Christmas.
We didn't go anywhere on New Year's eve. It was raining terribly again here that day. We had planned to go to the Family Center here for a free deejay dance party. Instead, we stayed home with our furry kids. I was really glad, because, as usual, people shot off fire crackers from about 9:30 pm. Willie is always terrified of fire works. We had to put his Thunder Shirt on for the evening. If you are not familiar with the Thunder Shirt, it's available at PetSmart and PetCo stores. It's made of a stretchy material and secured with velcro. It's like a warm hug, and works wonders for Willie when he's afraid. We did manage to stay up until 12 midnight and welcomed the New Year with a toast of Sparkling Cider!!!
Now I want to tell you about our newest gadget which we got a couple days after Christmas. It's called the Power Air Fryer XL. It's really quite a nice device. You can fry, roast, and bake in it without using any oil. Jim wanted it to bake doughnuts in, but we did air fry French Fries, and they were really tasty. We even air fried an 8 pound turkey breast. It was incredible!
Jim talked to Charles today, and he hopes to have our new table made before we leave here next week. YAY!!! We will be back in Palm Springs from January 12th to the 25th, then we will be going to Quartzsite, AZ for a week. Our plans after that were on hold until we found out if Jim was going to need follow-up treatments, but now we are working on our travel plans......and we may be on the road through mid-April. Will let you know once our plans are definite.
Take care, and have a wonderful week. By the way, how are you doing with your New Year's Resolutions? I hope you made resolutions that you can keep. Happy New Year and love to all of you.
