If we were having coffee…
How are you?
We had a good day on Friday visiting the tulip fields in Skagit Valley (Washington State). The day was perfect in many ways: not too hot or too cold, plus there was a breeze and a light cloud cover so it wasn’t too hot for the dogs.
Managing the deeply rutted roads and the gravel was a bit challenging with the lightweight convertible walker/wheelchair, but we managed to get Grandma close enough to some of the flowers to feel like she was there.
As a bonus: we saw this field of snow geese (?). At first glance it looked almost like a field of white flowers a little past its peak.
As Grandma’s heart is not in the best shape, it felt important to fit this outing in before I take off for a couple of weeks.
We did have one scare: she couldn’t get up from the toilet unassisted at the restaurant where we had lunch, and I had no clue how to assist. We managed in the end, but not on the first try, and I was running through the “what should we do next” scenarios in my mind before we had success. It really made me aware of her vulnerability…and how glad I was that we did this trip.
Wishing you beauty and joy in the coming week…and if you know what kind of birds we saw please share.
