Going for a walk

If Bob and I go for a walk these days, we don’t go far. We just amble around our yard. This is not an easy trek because the lawn is lumpy and bumpy. As we go I keep an eye on my husband in case he stumbles.

In January, we never thought we’d be outside together this April. Bob’s cancer had come on so hard and fast it looked like it would take him at any minute.

We are thankful for each day we have together. A slow walk around the shed is a good outing for us–Bob wanted to take a look at a plow he intends to sell and had me do some measuring of that machine.

After checking out the JD plow, we headed back to the house where Bob took a nap.

Another good day on Sunnybook Farm.

Bob and Sunny out for a ride

My husband Bob couldn’t wait to get outside this afternoon. It was the first really nice day he and I took the cart for a ride without family help.

Today Bob wanted to look at a plow he intends to sell but he needed some measurements off of it–too bad his helper (me) took so long trying to understand what he wanted to be measured–I wouldn’t let him off the cart to do the measuring as he gets a little wobbly and I didn’t want him falling.

Bob and Sunny (the dog’s not driving. Susan had to push him over so she could get in.

After we did our measuring, Bob and I drove back to the house where Sunny was waiting.

Our dog got so excited when he saw the cart coming for him, I thought he’d run out before I could put his leash on.

We three drove around the farmyard a couple of times, but that made Sunny happy and us, too. It was a good afternoon. Any day when we don’t need any doctors is a good day.

A lovely day

Today Rachel and two of her brood drove up from Sun Prairie. Eli and Arianna, our nine-year-old grandtwins, were on spring break. The three of them came to take Grandpa Bob to his Oncology checkup. The checkup went fine and we had a lot of fun with our company.

While we waited to go to the afternoon appointment, Rachel helped me with my blog setup. She also cleared up a lot of things on my web site. Now let’s hope I don’t mess things up on my computer.

The twins put together a 300 piece puzzle on the dining room table. The day was fun, productive, and especially good because Bob had good numbers from his blood tests.

Eli and Arianna had a good start on this puzzle.
