Good news and a Birthday Adventure
So let's start with the good news! I got my tests back and I am clear of cancer... Phew! I will have to check in annually with my doctor but for now, things are good.
Today is my amazing husband Mike's fiftieth birthday, so we actually left the house!
(I know, I know we should get used to doing that again, but for some reason it's hard!) Here he is on a boat in a mangrove swamp just outside of the city.
The three of us on the boat!
"Duck!" (we had to do that a lot.)
A great blue heron flying off.
Arriving at the sea turtle rescue.
Me, inside the incubation room with Eduardo, who works at the rescue.
Naomi with her baby turtle to release on the beach.
Well, we were headed out of the preserve for a hot minute and then the van got stuck in the mud. We piled out and immediately sank into about 10 inches of mud ourselves ...and a mosquito swarm. Then we did a sticky mud walk into the shade and waited while the van was discussed. They got a rope and pulled it out with an ATV with all of us pushing! Then we really did head back to Mazatlán.
Anyway, today is the first break I have taken from work since my surgery. Halloween orders are coming in for my mask store (these two are drying under the fan), and I'm busy trying to get my new release, "The Hand Turkey Book" out for early October.
