At first all the trees around our home began to have this fine green haze to them. One morning, ours did too. For some reason, that light green newness surprised me this year. First came the little ice cream cone like shape, then there was a little round gathering of green feathers right below it. Every branch has one.

Now days later, most of the trees are growing greener every day.

We have more changes here at home. Yes, I am back in the pool and easily doing all the exercises. Out of the water, I am a wimp. Worst of all, I grow wimpier by the day. One day last week I found that I couldn’t climb the stairs with any ease what so ever anymore. We have had a stair lift installed downstairs since November 2019. Perhaps the sight of me crawling up the stairs so upset dear G that he ordered a second one.

We now live in a 2021 fully ADA approved condo. It may look as if it is a three story condo, but it isn’t. Imagine, the luxury of living in a one story home. I confess, there are still three stairs to climb at the end of the stair lift. It saved us about four thousand dollars to not have the stair lift turn the corner and go to the top. I have two hand rails in this part of the stairs, and I can do three stairs easily.

Here’s Zoe at 16 sitting in our friend Joe’s new truck.
- Himself: Took off the main handrail and worked for a whole day to get the wall smooth. Found a new space game to play.
- Myself: Cold and shivering. Dozing off at inappropriate moments. This isn’t a bad kind of chemo at all.
- Reading: Still reading Penny. 6 more to go.
- Photos: Mine.
- Gratitude’s: Got to share Zoe’s birthday with her this week. She could hug G.

The greenery of spring is going to uplift all our spirits I think! Yay for chairlifts - I’m glad they exist :) And I’m very glad you were able to celebrate Zoe’s birthday with her!

Good that you are doing all the pool exercises...you'll build back to the other things.

Yes, that's the idea. :)

I'm glad you could have help with the stairs. I'm sure with the pool, you'll get back to non-wimpy status with time.
