We expected snow so it was no surprise it was WHITE outside this morning. We did very little i had left dishes from last night so I picked up and decided I had to move the snow. DH was doing his PT so I gave him his cell phone just in case he needed something. We use the phones often now and when I am outdoors I know he can always talk to me. That helps the anxiety level.
Once outside I realised it was powdered snow not the wet kind. I used the Whisk broom to clear the deck off. I realised i did not need the blower. I used the scoop just walking leisurely over the driveway it is big but the snow just moved ever so easily it was like walking with nothing. I did not have to lift it I made it leap off the scoop. I had such a good time i was warm there was no wind it was great.
After the snow was removed I actually SWEPT the driveway with the broom. It was actually warm and so the driveway was drying because of the hot top.
I went in to the house and suggested DH take a short walk outside with his cane, I reassured him there is no ice.
We have three steps from the deck with no rail, this is the first time he has been outside walking but it was such a good opportunity.
He had his cane, he did the steps with me hovering and then he was on the driveway. He was really pleased with himself. The air was so clear and not very cold and together we walked around the driveway. He checked out the RV from the outside and checked in the garage.
He saw a few things I must do and it was great to be walking together.
Tomorrow is DH Birthday and I had hope we could go out to eat but alas we are forecast freezing rain so it will have to be later in the week.
Never the less we know he can do it and we are both happy about our little walk, outdoors in the snow scene exactly 14 days from surgery.
It feels good HUGS Spark friends I feel good.
I got another day of exercise so it is getting me MOTIVATED'
