I don't know, maybe I should sleep in like that every day because I hopped out of bed and started moving with a fury. Even before I went downstairs to get my coffee, I changed the bed, cleaned the bathroom and put away a ton of jewelry I had left laying all over my dresser.
By the time Jim came home from breakfast with the guys, I had a load of laundry in the machine and was reading the paper. The rest of the morning went like clockwork. I worked on my VBS project for about an hour and accomplished way more than I had hoped. At that point, I realized that I was going to reach my day's goals and invited Jim to join me for lunch out and a walk on the canal.
You guessed it. He jumped at the chance. Sitting around with his hand in the air isn't a lot of fun for Jim. He can just read so much and then the day begins to get a little long. The PA gave him permission to begin walking again as long as he keeps his hand above his heart. He has had a lot of practice with that, so off we went.
After a lunch of soup and a shared sandwich, we went over to the canal and began walking. It was a really nice day. I didn't take my camera thinking, "What could I see that I'd want to take a picture of?" Huh! My new motto is "Just take it." We saw three sets of goose parents and their sweet little goslings swimming on the canal. It is so neat to watch them. One parent swims in the lead, followed by the little ones and backed up by the other parent. As if that wasn't enough, we saw a beautiful heron in flight and the most wonderful patches of wild flox. I'm so sorry there are not pictures.
The canal path passes "DickDonalds" where we stopped for some Mcfreshment. I am so addicted to the new Mocha Frappes. Yum, yum. We ended our journey at the greenhouse where I bought a few more flowers to plant.
Now we're home again and I'm going to finish my book. We decided on a very light supper so I can indulge myself for an hour or so.
