What a Beautiful Morning

Apparently... we had 4.4 earthquake last night. I didn’t feel a thing. 
Mind you I’m so tired in the evenings now I could probably sleep through the big one! 
All I know is.. it was much cooler as we started our early morning walk..
 ....and the sky was absolutely beautiful
We were even joined by a feathered friend

Squirrel Shenanigans

So on the day Starbucks release their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.. more squirrels have returned to Little Lake Park. 
Sammy was joined by his friends Sidney and Cyril. It was fun watching them playing.
I know it was a little cooler this morning.. but as much as I love it...it’s a bit too soon for Autumn.. 
I will keep Summer going for a couple more weeks.. and leave the Pumpkin Spice for a later date

By the way.. it’s a year today I had my last chemo... didn’t that go fast!!

The Christening

Yesterday was a very proud moment for me
It was the day Little Miss was christened
It is always a profound moment when a child is welcomed into the church family..
and given Godparents who will lead them in Faith
I was heartbroken that I couldnt be there..
but I was with them in heart and mind 
Little Miss was perfectly behaved..
although she did look dubius as the water was being poured into the font.
but didnt cry when the vicar poured water over her head...
and a bit indignant afterwards
She looked beautiful in her dress..
And Little Pickle looked gorgeous in his outfit
My Family is truly Blessed

Fellowship and Fun

Today was such a fun day..
First I went to the 'Knots of Love' Ministry at our church
where on the 4th Saturday of the month..
ladies meet to make quilts for the sick and for newborns
Its a great time for Fellowship..and I love it.
Afterwards MrD took me out to lunch (three guesses where!)
and then we went on to an Angels Baseball game..
I just love this kind of day...even if the Angels did lose...
again!

Another Pleasent Stroll...

The last walk of the week. My walking partner was quite tired.. 
and my ankle was giving me jip so we cut short our walk this morning. 
There was no question about us not going.. well maybe a slight quiver of indecision.. 
but no pain no gain right..
You can really feel the season is beginning to change..
cooler and less humid
Much nicer to walk now...I only hope I can keep going

Still Walking....

This morning I took some advice and strapped my ankles before walking. And I must say.. it worked really well. Hardly pain at all. When I got home I gave my poor feet a nice foot soak.. which was very soothing
I was walking by myself so I left home a bit later and went up to Little Lake Park.. in the hopes of seeing Sammy again. 
I wasnt disappointed. And he watched me doing my circuits. Over 15,000 steps by I got home.
Im really enjoying my walks

Aching Feet....

That was a heck of a walk this morning. At 5.30 my walking partner and I were up before the sun.. which was good because as soon as it made an appearance it became really hot. 
Nearly 20,000 steps by I got home but I have a problem though. 
Today my ankles... not my feet which are fine.. but my ankles.. are really sore. 
I know I have been walking an awful lot.. and I’m carrying a lot of weight. 
But I don’t want it to start hindering me.
Lets hope they are ok tomorrow
