Old and new friends have been helping Gary and I get out and do some fun things.
I can't take him places by myself, so these times have been sweet.
I only have a smattering of photos
and they don't always show who's along with us,
but that's because they were usually the ones taking the pictures. :)
|A walk around the lake with sweet friends|
|Investigating the lawn (the wheelchair is needed when Gary gets tired)|
This came about when I mentioned to our Bible Study group
that Gary & I are not able to get out together anymore.
Sure enough they set up a sign up system
so we could have someone go along with us on a regular basis.
|Can't go wrong with a Cinnabon.|
|Or Anniversary Blend|
We usually have 2 outings a week, which are approx. 1 1/2 hours.
That's about all we can handle.
VENTURA COUNTY FAIR
|With all the sights, sounds, and smells|
These outings are the highlights of our week.
Gary gets some exercise and I get to enjoy some time with friends.
Sometimes we just do something kind of "normal" like...
BROWSING THOUGH LOWES
|The old stomping grounds|
|A walk through Lowes|
Or, like today, we went somewhere new (to us)...
THE PATIOS SHOPPING AREA
|"The Patios" at the Valencia Mall|
|Our happy companions|
|The fountains capture Gary's interest|
|Happy to be out in the fresh Autumn air|
One of our favorite places is the beautiful...
|Inspecting the Koi pond at Descanso Gardens|
|The rocks catch Gary's eye.|
Sometimes we don't go very far...we even like to walk around our own...
|Resting after a nice walk at the recreational area gardens.|
Did you know that at the corner of McBean and Newhall Ranch, there are...
|Watching & listening to the water feature|
|Tending the garden (I keep a hand on his "gait belt" when he's on the move, because his balance is terrible now, and he "scissor steps" sometimes.)|
To all of you who have been my "second set of hands"
so that Gary and I could spend some time enjoying life together,
may I say MANY THANKS!
"For he will not dwell unduly on the days of his life,
because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart."
