This past Sunday my two sisters, Maureen and Pat, my brother in law, Jeff, my nephew, John and my great niece, Trinity, and I all went to breakfast at this hotel that is not far from where I live. We went to celebrate my birthday.
It was so nice. We sat outside, had wonderful food and a nice view of the lake. The best part was they allowed you bring your dogs! It was the first time I've been able to bring them (legally) to a restaurant with me. I say legally because when my dog was little I used to put him in my purse and take him everywhere. To restaurants, movies and stores. He was so small that no one noticed him. But now he is to big.
That's him under the table. His name is Elton and he is a long hair chihuahua. I know, I know, he needs to lose weight.
Both Elton and my sister Pat's dog, Zeke, were so good. We were a bit worried they would bark at the other dogs but they couldn't have been better. They loved going.
Zeke is a short haired dog and gets cold a lot so Trinity put her jacket on him and kept him warm.
On Memorial Day I went to a movie with my sister. I'm so blessed to have my family all living close to me so I can see them a lot. We are all very close and get along great...........most of the time. LOL
Tues I went and spent the day with my brother, Gene, at the hospital. It was great day. He took his first steps! The best part of that was it showed him he will walk again one day. It gave him a boost he really needed. Sometimes it's hard to stay upbeat when the progress is so slow.
He also was moving his arm a little bit better.
While I was there he got a few cards. He wanted me to tell everyone thank you so much. They mean a lot to him. He loves to see where the cards come from and he shocked so many people he has never met cares so much and really are praying he gets better. Cards are coming even from other countries!
Before his stroke, we had plans to travel soon. On May 30th he was set to retire and was going to free to travel with me. Well of course, those plans got pushed back, But Tues he said when he gets better he still wants to travel. He wants us to go around and met all the wonderful people who sent the cards so he could thank them in person. Wouldn't that be fun!
Today I spent a few hours in the garden planting flowers. It was nice to play in the dirt for awhile. Oh, I should have taken photos. What is the matter with me! Well maybe I'll do that tomorrow as I'll be around home all day again working on projects.
So until then, be safe and take care of yourself.
Hugs to you all,
