winos and foodies is celebrating 7 years of blogging this week. In my head I wrote a long post docementing my feelings over the past seven years. But when I sat down at the computer the words wouldn't come. So I'll keep it simple.
Thank you to everyone who popped into winos and foodies over the past 7 years.
Thank you to those who read and leave comments, thank you to those that read and don't leave comments.
Thank you to the friends I've made; those still here and those that have moved on from blogging.
Thank you to those friends I've met and those friends in the virtual world.
winos and foodies began as a diary of my days and a place to leave my memories of family and recipes for my children. Lately I haven't been able to find the energy to do much baking.
The drugs I take to manage my pain make me sleepy. They have taken away my appetite. Food doesn't excite me in the way it once did.
Sometimes I will taste something that will excite me. Like the sweetness of my first summer strawberry, or the smell of a new season peach.
As each day passes my energy is a little less as the secondary cancer again begins to take over my body. Which is why I have decided to accept my oncologist's suggestion and undergo another six months of chemo.
I will continue to blog when I feel able. I may even bake and blog. I hope so.
....and one final thank you and my most important thank you. Thank you Bryan. I know we joke about you being my kitchen bitch.........but I do appreciate all you do for me, everyday. <3
