"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..."

Genesis 1:1 and all this earth was begun. We have seen much and then we think of all the places we have not been..friends tell me I have drug John all over the world! He loves the traveling as much as I do! We camped with the children and grandchildren (collectively) in 47 states. We finally got into the other three in the last couple of years. We have been to five of the seven continents. For the twelve years our son and his family lived in Texas, we were out there about twice a year and now that they have been in Georgia for the past 18 years we are there several times a year. When I finally got to see the Grand Canyon about five years ago, I was so touched I cried! John had been there as a young man and so he has been there twice. We would love to go back and ride the train out there.
One of our favorite trips was going to Winnipeg Canada, leaving the car there, riding the train for about 10 days across Canada (they don't do this any more). We got off at Calgary, Vancouver, Banff stayed at each place a couple of days then rode the train more. It was a fabulous way to see the country, wheat fields, plains, mountains (sitting in a club car going around the rushing mountain rivers), riding a huge "machine vehicle" onto the ice fields and glaciers. We stood on ice that was thousands of years old! In Banff a moose came walking down the street. We had high tea in an elegant "railroad hotel" built in the early 1900's. We wondered if our car would be there when we got back , and it was! Now we are wondering where we can go that we have not been. How about an African safari???
Today started out very good and lots of yard work, digging, feeling great, then late afternoon, the nausea set in. So back to the zofran, my best friend. I slept a while and laid on the couch alot this evening. No food to speak of to eat...just a can of soup.I knew the day without any side effects would not last. So I guess I will take the meds and try to keep going. And think of what trip is next between chemo's! And be so thankful for God's blessings and our being able to see this wonderful world.
