Canyon Pictures And An Update

I put these pictures together for a project. It was a familiar way for me to select pictures and post them somewhere.  A few of these will be chosen for a web site. 

Then, since I haven't posted for so long, I decided to post them. Together with a status report.

I'm not doing as well as I would like. Today is the first day of a 'getting back to normal' program I need to do for myself and my health. My ability to walk normally, even. After having bad problems with my legs not working right, and the osteoarthritis in my right hip going from bad to worse, I came down with yet another case of bronchitis. Seems to be an annual event now. 

Two sets of big brown eyes have looked at me longingly now for a couple of weeks and, this morning, I was finally well enough to take them for a short walk. After throwing balls to Faith with the ball thrower and the new orange balls, the ones that bounce, and, says Faith, are so much more fun to catch than regular old tennis balls. 

I have volunteered for two different things, one is the web site, which I will work on with my friend Jeanne. The other is helping another friend, Kathy, who is a dietitian at our new hospital and diabetes educator, get a diabetes support group started in town. Probably at our new hospital. I have been a bit worried about being able to do this, but feeling better I am determined to make it work. Both projects will be so much fun and will keep my mind going. 

Since I have problems with my legs and standing, I will not participate as a volunteer for our Gran Fondo bicycle race that will take place in mid-September. I love that race, it's so much fun to help out, giving out water and snacks at the rest stop. Dosing out electrolytes became my specialty. I will miss it. 

The new Walmart superstore has opened in town. Glenn is taking me on Wednesday. That should be fun. 

The dogs are fine and waiting for their breakfast right now. They are not bugging me yet, but it won't be long, so I will leave you now with the rest of the pictures. Hope you will enjoy them. The one of the mail  boxes is my favorite.
