Thursday, August 28, 2008

Well, we didn't make it to Colorado after all. We both got a touch of the flu and were unable to get over it in time to get there before Judy's sister had to leave for a dutch oven cook off. Too bad! However, we are planning on trying again during mid-September.

Our Ukranian house guest (Elena Yanova) has moved to Bountiful, where she will be closer to the LDS Business College. She is living with a couple that serve the Temple Square Missionaries by checking their apartments and providing soap etc. to the apartments where they live. They used Sister Yanova's apartment as an example of good housekeeping when she was on Temple Square and actually made a video of it for training other sisters.

Otherwise things are pretty normal around here. Judy has started her fourth month of chemo on Paxol, though it may be her last as she is loosing the feeling in her hands and feet. She is noticing trouble with handwriting and even typing. Not being able to type in today's computer age would be almost as bad as loosing your vision!!!

She has felt well enough at times to work bottling the surplus tomatoes from our garden. They are really produding well these days, about a dozen a day. We also harvested our corn, got about 20 quarts for the freezer. Our second crop of beets will soon be ready and we actually have a few watermelons and canteloupe beginnin to get big. Hope they beat the frost.
