Walking In The Rain


It has rained here lately and one day when it drizzled a bit, I took Faith and the walker Jeanne got for me from the Senior Center for a short walk. 

Faith had to thoroughly investigate the walker before it met with her approval. 

Rain is healing and wonderful when you live in a place where you don't get much of it. 

I doubt we will get enough for the wild animals to return, but at least my trees must have enjoyed both the drizzle and the downpour that came later. 

 I saw the surgeon on Wednesday. Dr. Gordon came in and got out of the exam room really fast. I had no questions, except about the drain and when it may come out. The amount that drains must be at a lower level than it is now. It's going down every day, I'm just not sure how long it will take to reach an acceptable level. But it's no big deal for me, as long as it keeps going in the right direction.

Other than that, I feel good for the most part. I've felt down and sad too, which I think must be normal, but I haven't dwelled there for long. 

I'm actually living in gratitude, so much kindness and help has come to me. Jeanne has been wonderful, always there for me, helping me, supporting me in every way. 

Solange and Joyce's mom, Irma, came over on Sunday, and before I knew it, there was Solange with my vacuum cleaner, vacuuming my entire house for me. 

And they also brought homemade soup and fruits. 

So with good friends and much support, I'm really doing well. 


  1. I love the smell of rain on dry pavement. Or as where you are, dry ground.
    People can be so kind - I'm happy you are being loved.

  2. You are looking good lady. So glad you are able to take short walks with Faith but even happier that your friends are right there for you. Keep healing.

  3. Hi Inger - that's such good news ... improvement all round - slow but sure. Great Faith is happy to see you out and about - even with your new walker - but am glad Faith approves. I'm also so pleased people are being there for you ... nothing like a good hoover! Jeanne is being great, then so lovely to see Solange and Irma ... and soup - what more can a girl want!

    The drizzle and rain are good - even with a little those plants survive ... we've had quite a lot recently - yet the reservoirs are still low, so our hosepipe ban remains!

    Take care and you're showing your strength by tolerating brief spells of being sad, and being down - very understandable ... then realising your fortune being where you are with friends and in particular Faith. With lots of thoughts and a few gentle hugs - Hilary xoxo

  8. Walking in the rain just might be what the doctor ordered! It always lifts my spirits to get out and about in all kinds of weather. I am glad to know that all is going well with your recovery. And, yay for friends! From the previous post ~ I love the rusty mailbox. I hope you do bring back your rusty posts.
