Saturday Out In The Sunshine.

Beautiful day today, warm for the 23rd of April, it was 24 degrees in the apartment, outside it felt like 26 degrees.

I hope this summer will be warm, not like last year when it was, briefly just as lovely from 25 April until 20.00 on the 29th.

Sadly after that apart from 10 days, at the beginning of July during the 2010 World Cup it was a cold, wet summer.

It does not need to be boiling hot, in fact for me if the temperature were to stay like this I would be happy.

After a shower, Richie dressed, perfumed and put on necklace, earrings plus rings of my choice.

We went out, this time Richie did most of the steering, when I could I steered but when I could do no more, Richie took over.

Getting out is more important to me now, than whether I can be independent and steer myself.

Of course I wish that I could, would rather be more independent, I used to enjoy steering myself.

This disease has been a huge learning curve, for both of us; we are learning to adapt everyday, this afternoon we enjoyed each others company, and the bustle of the market.

Happy Easter! Thanks for posting against the tide of pains and trials. Keep posting while you can but I have to take days and sometimes weeks off for no apparent reason. Still, take time for yourselves as needed and know we all think of you and quote your stories every day. Your stories, shared so frankly with humor,help me accept what may be inevitable for me and that my progression can be done with grace, class and style Love and comfort.Love, Mary and Fred in Vermont US

Hi Mary,
Thanks for your comments, I will type while I can, it is getting harder, more painful, difficult to move my hand and reach the keys.
Love back to you and Fred.

Hi Mary,
Its a roller coaster ride we do our best to cling on while enjoying each other and laughing as much as possible.

Hi Gareth,
Having a relaxed day hope you are too, thanks for your life comment.
Richie says newts walk miles, they are useful in the garden.

Thanks you 3 dear friends for your visits.
Love,
Herrad
