So today was my first 5K fitness walk without Mike. I did it, I’m glad and I didn’t do it alone. Rachel my oldest daycare wee one walked with me today. She’s been with me for almost 13 years and she’s as much mine as her real mama (well close) and she knew just how hard today was and sorta just took my walk by the hand and became my partner. Her mama and my best friend walked together but both didn’t feel up to the full 5K so they cut their walk short but Rachel and I walked it in 54 minutes. Now that is no where near the best time I’ve ever had but it’s Rachel’s best time and that really was what it was all about in the end, her being there for me and completing her first 5K. It really was fun to walk with her and just listen to her tell me all she wanted to share plus how much she misses Mike too. No crying today, some tears but nothing terrible. Here’s some pictures…
For Mother’s day Jim bought me flowers and the helped me plant them. It is something he has never done for me. He’s trying too.
We went fishing and had a blast. Now to tell you Jim took me fishing is something that’s sorta cool. Jim hates fishing, he hates fish but he says he loves the time with me so we took the little boat down to my parents little lake and went fishing.
I been in the need of a new sandbox for the daycare kids. We had a big one but have stole the sand from there for so many years it was just fine for something new. So I took the one-ton truck to the gravel pit and got a load of sand. Now I know the kids will have fun. I keep the toys all piled in the sandbox to keep the chickens from roosting in it.
Then I went and got another load for us to add to the garden for extra drainage. The soil is now so soft and great looking. Just another couple of weeks and we’ll be able to plant.
Last night I went to one of my dear friends daughters graduation. Kim's daughter Abby is a special needs child and such a sweet and special child and I don’t mean just special. She is such a sweet and wonderful daughter and friend. The hugs she gives me are so full of love. Congratulation Abby.
Today I took my mama for a cart ride. I wanted to share some of the sights she hasn’t seen in a while. We had a great time and really enjoyed our time together. I love this picture of mama. She is so beautiful!!
So there’s part of my week in pictures. Not to much time to sit and home and brood which is good. Things are getting better. Soon it will be time again to put my all into strengthen and toning up the hunk of chub.
Hope you all have a great and blessed weekend.
