Finally, a week that resembles what I think Spring should look like! Some sun, some clouds, some temps up to, and above, 70 degrees. Good time to get outdoors.........
Saturday, a long-time friend and I participated in a Fun Walk fund raiser for a church located in Sherwood, appropriately, the walk was titled "The Friar Trot"! My friend has suffered all of her life with balance issues and it was just recently discovered that she had a birth defect that caused the bones in her inner ears to form improperly.
In January, of this year, she had major brain and ear surgery to repair her inner ear. She is doing very, very well and has set a goal for herself to one day run or walk a marathon! Before surgery, just walking caused her to have motion sickness and you know how unpleasant that can be.
So, Saturday she stuck her toe in the water, and I accompanied her, as we walked a mile through the streets of Sherwood, her first of what will become many miles.
Early Friday morning, I was out taking photos of our backyard.
It is hard to see the dark burgundy leaves of the Elderberry bush behind the Azaleas.....but when that grows enough to provide a background for the pink and the orange....it will be smashing, I think!
Our backyard is wide but not very deep.....but, lucky us, we have the borrowed view of a city park beyond our backyard! I love this time of year when the grass is green and the flowers are blooming......LOVE IT!
Great week of dry weather and weed pulling with a little walk thrown in!
