all is well

Just taking some down-time for the summer.

I'm trying to live a bit more in the moment - and stopping to do things like take a photo of this lovely statue I spotted in Little Italy, on my way home from the vet.

Check out the little sheep grazing on the ball of yarn:

Regular blogging will return in September.

It's fun to take photos of simple things that catch our attention isn't it? Just today I was trying to do the same. Trouble is, I need a new camera!

Enjoy your break. I plan to take one later this month too. We all deserve some down time. said...

Hi Laurie,

Healthline editors recently published their final list of the top breast cancer blogs on the web for 2013 and Not Just About Cancer made the list. You can find the complete list at (in no particular order). We encourage you to share your newfound status as one of the best blogs on the web with your friends, family, & followers.

We also created a set of badges you can easily embed on your site & anywhere else you see fit:

Please let me know if you have any questions.


Warm Regards,

That is a great piece of art!

Of all the street art installations for revitalized street in Ottawa, the set on Preston are the best by far.

Well worth a stroll on a lovely day to enjoy the street vibe and see each of the 20 or so installations - all have a granite base and a metal finial (the ball of yarn in this case) but they are unique and all celebrate aspects of life on this street.

The one that includes words back home by a new immigrant that he will be able to bring his new bride to Canada very soon makes me tear up every time.

Hi Laurie,

Healthline has just released their list of Best Breast Cancer Apps for this year: Much like your blog, these apps were thoughtfully chosen by our editorial team. They were also medically reviewed by our in-house team. As a winner of our Best Blogs this year, we thought that you might be interested in sharing this list with your audience in hopes that they will find some of these apps useful. Thanks again for creating a wonderful resource for the Breast Cancer community!
