Enjoying This Summer.




Remedios Varo.

I woke up to a lovely sunny day which made me very happy to see the sun and blue skies.

Amazingly it is already a week ago, that it was my 60th birthday, a day that I enjoyed very much, shame it could not last longer.

Richie made it very special for me surprising me with gorgeous rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings.

I am very amused to be 60, it’s unreal to me, I don’t feel much different than I did at 50 or even 40.

Without MS I would be very content with my life in Amsterdam, going for walks with Richie and the dogs, around this beautiful city.

We so enjoyed strolling in the evenings and going to favourite places, sadly they are no longer accessible to me in a wheelchair.

When I could still hobble, I could manage to hoist myself up the steps and into the coffee shops that we enjoyed visiting.

Looking forward to the warm weather and sitting on the terraces of a couple of our favourite coffee shops.

Both are next to canals and are nice places to relax, I used to love sitting on a terrace watching city life go by.

This summer I am determined to get out and about more and enjoy myself

ahh I thought we had spring but the weather here has gone cold again. Crazy weather!
I often wish Sergio & I lived where we could walk or ride bikes around in a town where restaurants & shops are plentiful. We have little neighborhoods that do, however we live in a neighborhood surrounded by roads, farms, and other neighborhoods. The closes shops or restaurants are a good couple miles. Too dangerous to ride a bike or walk on these roads. Maybe one day.

A promise in the making.

All the very best for you two.

Oh and I hope you do just that, Herrad. It sounds perfect to me.

Hi Janis,
What a shame you can not go for walks and can't do anything without a car.
Hope one day you will live somewhere you can go for walks.

Hi Robert,
A promise I hope comes true.

Hi Webster,
I agree and am looking forward to getting around.

Thanks to you lovely friends for coming by.
Love,
Herrad
