Went to see Mira Yesterday, Sunday

Good morning everybody, I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend.
Yesterday Ken and I and the two dogs made a trip over to see Mira. We we glad to see her and the dogs had such a fit over getting to see her.
I should have taken my camera but didn't.
We took lunch over and shared it with her then left some leftovers for another meal for her. We did a few things for her that she still can't do as she still can't bend over to do them. She is doing so much better though and is walking almost back to normal. Her back is straightened out a lot from one hip being higher than the other one. She still has some pain when she overdoes things and she still can't sit and drive very far. She is still wearing her brace and uses the pole Ken made her for walking especially at school where she has long hallways to have to walk. She worked full time last week but I know this weekend was a blessing for her to rest some.
Everyone have a blessed and safe Labor Day and next week.

Here are a couple of pictures not from yesterday though. I made one a few months back and the other one Saturday. Helen

  5. So happy to hear that Mira continues to do well. How cute that the dogs got all excited to see her. I guess they got used to having her around, and now miss her.

    I love how you get those bird shots. I try, but I always take one step too close, and then they fly away.

    We don't have lizards like that around here. He's actually quite beautiful.

  11. I am glad that Mira is coming along and seems to be improving a little at a time. You must be happy and keeping your fingers crossed.
    How did you manage to take a photo of that beautiful bird? I swear you born photographers just find these great shots. Thanks for sharing this one. I just loved it. I so appreciate what goes into trying to take photos of birds. I am going to take my camera down and get photos of these slow pigeons. It is the least I can do. I know I can't capture the fast ones on film. Gerry
