New cancer center progressing nicely

We can see progress on the new Sanford Joe Lueken Cancer Center from our front porch.  All the buildings in blue are the new additions.  The hospital complex are the brown/tan buildings to the left of the new construction.  It’s been interesting to watch, especially the roofing endeavors over Winter.

Construction 05092018

Scheduled for opening in 2018. 

All the land between here and there belongs to Sanford, so any future construction should be related to the medical center and not general commercial businesses.  I like that.  It’s also very convenient to be so close –walking distance - to healthcare.  With other medical buildings to the west of the hospital, our immediate surroundings are essentially within a non-commercial area. 

Today is our Sunday, our “weekends” being Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  The day started off gloomy and chilly with light rain, a carryover from yesterday.  Ugh.  I got a head start on the work week by preparing Dave’s dinner for a few days, a chicken stir-fry.  All done!  Yay! 

About the time I straightened up the kitchen from that, it was decent enough for a walk.  Yay for that, too!  Really need to take advantage of these months and get outside, as Winter will be knocking on our door before we know it!

I think I’m liking the new look of the blog.  I’ve always thought photos stand out better on a black background, so I’m pleased to have this looking more like it did in “the old days.” 

Hard to believe I’ve been blogging for almost 13 years, starting on a different platform back in 2005.

Two posts in 2 days!  Woot!  Don’t hold your breath for the next one!

Stay safe out there, okay?

Thanks for stopping by!
