I'm cutting some Swiss chard after I get back from hauling a truck load
of junk from out garage to the annual town Trash Bash. Looks to be
enough BEETS to make another haul, might pickle these as I'm sorta tired
of eating cooked beets and carrots. May even make some dilly carrots as
the great grands love those carrot sticks.
I wore myself completely out yesterday walking back and forth from the
garage to the truck. Always before there were two of us hauling, now
it's just me. Miz Anne did sit and give directions as to which things I
could get rid of and which I couldn't.
She is doing quite well, does her exercises multiple times a day, walks
around a lot with her walker, goes out in the yard to supervise her
flower beds, actually went to First Friday Mass yesterday morning,
dragging me along with her of course. After Mass all the other old
people (that's all that go to early Mass) came up to hug her and shake
hands and the deacon actually brought the Host to her rather than make
her walk down the aisle. She has been doing the bulletin boards at our
church for twenty-three years and is well known in the Altar Society
(another bunch of old people).
Reckon she will go back tomorrow too as she is a wee bit more religious
than this old sailor.
Oh yeah, she's learning to use a cane but can't use it versus the walker
just yet, not until the surgeon says it's okay. Luckily my old aluminum
cane is adjustable so we didn't have to buy a new one. I went to the
local drug store yesterday and got a pair of pre-cut tennis balls for
her walker legs and got her one of those Billy Mays special "Gopher"
things. A grasper for picking up things without bending over, which she
is forbidden to do at the moment. She went out on the patio and used it
to pick up sticks and leaves. She is the essential gardener.
