Getting over cancer and on with my life...

I have recently started a community garden in my back yard. there are 7 families including me. The garden area is HUGE and we have about half of it planted now. Christopher's old room has turned into a makeshift greenhouse for seedlings that will go in the ground after the last frost.

It is so nice to have a new hobby. Gardening will get me out in the sun, get me doing some physical exercise that isn't too strenuous, and help me to meditate in a peaceful setting. It is so important to find something that you enjoy doing after an illness.

I am also going to school and enjoying that very much. I know that learning new things has improved the chemo-brain that I was experiencing.
