Here it is Wednesday afternoon already and I'm just getting around to posting what we did on Sunday. Funny how time flies even when you aren't doing much.
I'll get to Sunday, because I have photos, but I'll start with the "Not doing much".
On Monday morning I drove myself to my Physical Therapy appointment. Yes, I have been cleared for driving! And my PT doesn't think he needs to see me until March 29th! He gave me a few new things to work on. I'm not sure how I'm going to get my back rehab to catch up with my hip progress. Maybe a month will bring results.
On Tuesday we had our usual Zoom meet up. 40 minutes goes by quickly with just chatting.
This morning we made made a shopping excursion to Costco, only our second to that destination since the pandemic restrictions. 9:00 to 10:00 are senior hours and there were very few people to get in our space. We may need to go more often, except, as is common for a trip to Costco, I spent too much money.
We have walked in the neighborhood the last couple of days what with a break in the rain. I struggle, but I keep at it.
Sunday we decided we needed to see our "kids". Is it OK to still call them "kids" when they are 45 and 47? Our purpose was to collect the Christmas wreath materials that are reusable. Since Jake lives in Ballard and it wasn't raining, we went first to the Ballard Locks to walk in the garden there. There are early bloomers there that we like to visit.
We miss going into the city, but with no one allowed in the stadiums we have no reason to go.We were happy to see the Edgeworthia in full bloom, and even happier to smell it's wonderful fragrance.
This little patch of cyclamen was sheltered under the Edgeworthia.
The crocus are beginning to bloom.
Lots of different kinds of Hellebore are blooming.
The locks are roped off, no visitors.
Wonderful black, double Hellebores that need help showing off their faces.
The park provides an easy paved circuit, just right for us "Old folks" .
An old, early blooming Rosamundi rhodie.
We had a short visit with Jake outside. We have been keeping up with him via texts but It was good to see him in person.
In the afternoon we drove over to Jill's house and went inside to sit and visit with Jill and Irene. Isaac was at work at his pizza making job. We talked about what's happening and not happening about schools reopening. There is plan for getting the elementary kids back, but nothing yet for the older kids. There will be high school sports but we can't go and watch the track meets. That makes me sad.
Irene let me look at her new sketch book. Wow! What a talented artist she is becoming. Sometime I'll have to get permission to show you some of her drawings.
And that's what we have been up to.
