Sunday Salon / Sunday Post – A Week in the Life of Dollycas – Weekly Rewind – New Arrivals


The Sunday Salon is a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

SUNDAY POST The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by

A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received, and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! medical visits cut into my busy week at the computer.

Tuesday I went to the wound clinic to get my leg rewrapped. The sores are looking better but I noticed Friday evening I have a new ulcer at the top of the bandages. What the heck is causing these things?

Then on Thursday, I had a follow-up visit with my oncologist. He is so happy with how well I am handling my cancer meds. He said maybe my disability may be the reason. I am not as active as a normal person. People that are more active seem to have a lot more bone pain. I am a little anemic so we need to keep an eye on that, but what really made me happy was that he told me to schedule a mammogram in September. The one five months ago did show something – shadows? It could have been caused by the fact that it was hard for me to stand so long and stretch my body to the contortions necessary. No one really got excited about it except me. Until I see a clear scan I can’t believe the cancer is gone and it’s been a long 5-6 months of waiting mostly to be sure it is covered by insurance. You know I will keep you posted.

We have added to more flowers but with the rain, we couldn’t get a new picture.

Also this week we accepted the fact that our green thumbs have turned black. Most of the flowers in the baskets in the front of the house died either from overwatering by the big storms that blew through or underwatering by us on those steamy hot days. So some Amazon boxes arrived this week. Boxes containing artificial flowers for the baskets out front and the flower box on the back porch. One of the baskets still contains live plants and we hope to keep it alive for the rest of the season.

Great Escapes Book Tours has been super busy. In July we hosted 15 tours and 18 tours are scheduled to begin in August. Authors we would love to host your tours. Bloggers we would love to have you join our team.

  1. I’m sending prayers and good thoughts your way, Lori, that the scan will be completely clear. It’s a pretty good sign if no one else is worrying.

    I’m so sorry about the ulcer. Frustrating.

    Too much rain and too much heat…either or both could be the cause of your plant troubles. Your green thumb is not gone…I bet things will get better if you get a chance to try again in the fall.
