What a wonderful weekend we had! Caitlin and her friend Valerie were here from Boise so I was spoiled. Caitlin and John made a delicious dinner on Saturday, marinated flank steak, Indian-spiced cucumber salad and German potato salad. I'm beginning to feel a bit like "Julie and Julia" but I am starving all of the time so I have to mention the food.

Next we went to Cabaret at the Civic Theatre. Both John and Caitlin are former performers so they had a lot to catch up on with the cast members after the marvelous show.

Sunday, Missy and Steve Garrett visited for brunch. Missy was Caitlin's nanny for 5 years. John made crepes which we stuffed with ham and cheese or cream cheese and huckleberry sauce. We chatted all afternoon until it was time for them to leave.

Much to my relief I do feel good this week and was able to enjoy all of the festivities. My scalp is sore as a boil though. John assures me there is no redness, and I understand this can precede hair loss. There were a few more long hairs on the pillow...

Thanks to all who commented. Congratulations to Kathy who finished her last Taxol. And Heidi, I'll remember the bananas next week.



  1. So glad the weekend was a happy one for your family, Kay! Your description of the wonderful food makes my mouth water and gives me a hankering for something more interesting than what I've been cooking lately. I knew that Caitlin had been involved in the theatre, but I guess I'd forgotten about John. Care to remind me of his greatest roles? My own stage experience is limited to playing the lead in Iolanthe in 5th grade at Park School and remembering someone cueing me on the lines from off-stage. Kind of a nightmare, as I recall, but of course my parents thought I deserved an Oscar. Now I just get on my soap box occasionally and the kids aren't really interested any more . . . they can recite chapter and verse of my sermons, I suspect. Guess I can start working on Isabelle soon, though at almost 2, she isn't interested either.

    Dan and I had a quiet holiday weekend here at home. It felt so good to get completely rested! Now we're back in the saddle and Tuesday is looking like a Monday.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!


  2. So glad that you are feeling good this week! Have a grand time in Boise! Prayers always! Peggy

  3. Sounds like a great weekend, Kay! Caitlin's sparkling personality always livens up the day. She is a sweetie--hi, Caitlin! Glad you liked the roses and we'll be thinking of you and John at Maria's graduation on Sunday. xxoo Patty

  4. Today as I was checking my protime, I learned that you were a patient! I've read your blogs and am happy that you have your good attitude. I'm thinking of you and sending you good thoughts. Best wishes!

  5. Hi Kay & John,
    I just found out about your fight "with the bear" and want you to know that we are thinking of you. Andrea Wagner told me about your blog, which I found without much effort. I hope your week off is relaxing and that each day will bring you more strength and healing.
    Love to you both,
    Brenda & John
