A Bright Cold Day Today.

Le Pont de Europe.

Gustave Cailleboutte.


Yesterday had a good session with my lovely physiotherapist Mathilde; she massaged my arms and shoulders before we started to do arm exercises.

Massaging my arms and shoulders helps me to stretch my arms, makes doing the exercises much easier, which is good for me.

After Mathilde left we had a late lunch and then I wrote my post, was funny to notice how foggy it was

Today the weather is clear and bright, with a pale blue sky and sunshine; perhaps it is colder than yesterday.

Have to wait until Richie takes the dogs out to get a report about the temperature outside today.

Last night Richie took Spike and Marleen for a late night walk in the park, the dogs were very happy, as they obviously thought they were not getting a walk anymore yesterday.

Spike had a great time in the park charging around and thoroughly enjoying himself, Richie said it was a fine sight.

The extra calorific food has had quite a dramatic effect; Spike looks much better, he does not look pathetically skinny as he did last week.

He has more energy which is very lovely to see, and good to know that something as simple as the right extra food, with extra calories gives him such a boost.

Had helping Spike enjoy his life, while he is still here, we are both very aware that Spike’s condition can change quite dramatically.

For this moment, we are enjoying our lovely Spike and not even considering what the future will hold.

Today is sunny and bright which I am enjoying tremendously, I feel good despite all my pain and discomfort.

Living in the moment is a good idea, it takes some getting used to, but I think that I am getting the hang of it now.

I find myself living in the moment for certain moments, then I fall off the moment wagon...but I keep trying. I think you actually have a better handle on it than most of us. ~Mary

Happy to hear that Spike had a good romp last night. Dogs are the masters of living in the moment.

You're right - capturing the here and now is the thing to do.

I can't have any sort of massage because my bones are so fragile but ..oh how lovely it must be!

Hi Mary,
I agree with you sometimes it works other times not.

Hi Karen,
My day was good, hope yours was too.

Hi Webster,
You are right dogs can teach us all about living in the moment.

Hi Angie,
You are right the here and now is important for us all.

Thanks you 4 dear friends for coming by, good to see your comments.
