Chapter 26, Day 25

Monday, July 24, 2017

These next few days will be quiet time. By Thursday, the busyness will start when my BIL and wife arrive to town and will be our houseguests through the weekend; they are in town for my niece's wedding. It will be a fun time for MIL, with all her children by her side.

I had to go out shopping for a dress for the wedding. I found 2 that I liked and will choose one and return the other. What an ordeal so much trying of dresses was. It was very taxiing on my foot to be on it for such a long time, and with so much walking. I'm sure I set myself back some from it.

I had some extra time last night and took MIL out for a visit to the Niagara River. It's very pretty along the shore. Now 94, her life has become a litany of the same complaints. For as long as I have known her, she never learned to enjoy her own company. She feels sad and lonely most of the time. Her outing lifted her spirits; I was glad I took the time to do that.

Today I really must go for my orthotics fitting....I just couldn't fit it in on last Saturday. Other than that, it will be a client work half day.

Enjoying the quiet of this morning.
Grateful to have found Paul Eugenel for some more chair exercises....thank you Jackie, for suggesting I check him out.
Enjoyed a phone conversation with granddaughter yesterday...it is the simple, sweet moments like this that I enjoy in life.
DH made a bouquet of flowers for our table yesterday.....so thoughtful and dear

Eat in calorie range.
Get in some chair fitness minutes
Few hours of client work.

Wishing you a great day!

    I am glad you liked him Vicki, he is a pretty happy guy, keeps you moving, in a joyful way.
    So sweet of hubby to bring in the flowers and very sweet of you to take MIL out.
    Hope you get your orthodontic fitting done. Hope your foot feels better.
    Have a great day friend. emoticon

    Wow! You have a lot going on! Good stuff too! You definitely need to get off your feet for awhile though. Ds has foot problems and had to get fitted for an orthotic recently. I purchased Jodi Stolove's Sit Down & Tone Up chair exercises a few months ago, I was surprised at how good a workout you can get sitting down.
    Good for you for not letting your foot problem stop you from working out! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad that you have some quiet time coming up. It's so restorative for us.
    People don't change much. Good to get your MIL out to the river for a pick me up, I'm sure that did both of you some good.
    Continue on with quiet simple pursuits this week leading up to your house guests arrival.
    And get those orthotics soon. emoticon
