Gnarly tree


Here’s a gnarly old tree here on the City of Hope campus.  Not a very attractive background on this Great Art, but I think the beautiful tree makes up for that.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken at the City of Hope, and part of my famous Garden and Architecture series.

Yeah, it’s lame, but that is technically architecture there in the background.  Even if it does look a bit like a trailer.  Trailers have architecture too, right?

Pretty good day today.  LRN4 had her sixth chemo infusion this evening.  This one took about two and a half hours, as opposed to yesterday’s treatment  that got done in a little more than an hour.  We just can’t predict these things, can we?  So we had a bit of a late dinner – chicken fricassee.  It was delicious!  I’m not sure it really agreed with LRN4, though – she’s feeling a bit under the weather tonight.  Not that I’m worried, but I don’t like it one bit.  She’s also starting to get a rash on her fingertips that’s similar to the one she got last time she was taking Nexavar.  That was a bit of a nasty side effect that we don’t want to repeat.  If she needs the drug at the current dose, so be it.  Her recovery is more important than some discomfort now.  But we’re going to talk to the doctor tomorrow and see if there’s something extra or different we should be doing, as there frequently is.

The app continues to frustrate me.  I would say I made no progress at all today, but I did find two or three things that won’t work.  So I feel a bit more like Thomas Edison but I don’t feel like a developer who has an app that will be ready for sale in another couple of weeks.  Very frustrating.  Tomorrow’s another day, though.

And I’m way later getting to bed than I should be, so I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: vandalizing goat!

See you tomorrow.

    I on the otherhand made great progress on the artwork and came up with an icon. It needs some refinement, but I’m excited that I am kind of getting an idea of what Adobe Illustrator can do and how to make it do it!
