Oh What a Beautiful Morning!

OK, so it was more like afternoon ish...

But is was beautiful; sunny, clear, warm but crisp...little bit of a breeze...

Did I say sunny??? Did I say it was the first day out of the house for seven days except for a mercy dog walk??

Then maybe you get the picture.

My health aide and I went down to Trader Joe's to do some shopping, then to a wonderful local ethnic and specialty grocer on the next block (hadn't been there in ages and she'd never been there-so got to show her around).

Then on the way back home we stopped at the YMCA to check on the terms of membership and take a tour, particularly of the pool. We liked what we saw and since they were having a Summer Promotion, there was additional incentive to do it sooner rather than later.

We had a great time, talking and joking and laughing most of the way there and back.

She was also excited about it and she's going to get her own membership.

Since part of her duties include escort and assistance with exercises, if required, this is a reasonable way to use her time when I go and to gain some benefit too.

By George! I think I've started a Spark!
