Here is the picture of the Chocolate Walnut Biscotti.
I not only made those but made dinner two nights, cupcakes and aside from some of the side effects can function. And a week from today I will feel crappy and like a million bucks all at the same time what a conundrum.
I sit and think what SHOULD I have done over the past 20 weeks of chemo: I should have read lots of books, written my book, written my thesis, my papers, knit a hat, a scarf, a sweater, a blanket, organized all 500+ of my recipes, put them into a database, organized all the papers in the office and exercised every day.
I did none of those things so they all still need to be done, except maybe for the knitting, that was my sister’s expertise (one of many). I have been able to enjoy my grand kids and marvel at the strength and ability of my husband to adapt, have lunch and coffee with friends during my good days and visits from friends on my bad, and survive the fear and anxiety of the disease and the cure. But the wonder is I hope to have many years ahead to accomplish all of the above and more.
The cake may not be ready to bake but this is going to be the best cake ever and I feel much better today.
