Lorelei has taken up gardening

Since our whole mission with chemo is to stop cancer cells from growing, Lorelei decided to bring balance into her life (plus some healthy sun and exercise) by trying to grow something else. We made a trip to "Green Thumb" nursery and bought four flats of pansies and planted them in the front flower beds. It felt good to step away from our usual sterile germaphobic life and get dirty, even muddy. Something about hands in soil just feels right. We're looking forward to watching these beautiful ORANGE flowers grow over the next few months as the cancer cells die. Lorelei was even brave enough to go outside without a wig or hat. She let me take this picture, but of course she "hates" it. She thinks her head is too white. But I think she is beautiful.

(Misc.) My set of 14.4v Firestorm rechargeable-battery equipment consists of a drill, a circular saw, a reciprocating saw, and two flashlights, so charged batteries are rather a must. The original B D charger went belly up one day, so after checking with the local hardware stores and hitting a brick wall, I checked with Amazon and there it was. When the replacement charger arrived, there was an enclosed instruction sheet addressing the recharging of old batteries, very appropriate for equipment that may be several years old. Two of my three batteries were in working condition, the third being dead. The charger performed perfectly. Note that there are either two modes, it works or it doesn t work. I took the dead battery to a Batteries Plus store, where for a fee somewhat above what a new battery would have cost, they replaced the dead cells with more robust models of same, resulting in a battery with 150% of the power of the OEM item. Re the flashlights, the original bulbs were replaced by a 1w LED unit, just as bright as the original bulb. I asked the fellow at the battery place what procedure to follow re charging the batteries, especially ones that are not used every day. Result: give each battery a several-hour charge once a month.

Psalm 91:14-16

New International Version (NIV)

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."
