It was a Christmas Card Night

But before that it it was a pleasant day.

Cheryl fell yesterday trying to retrieve something from her office. Our neighbor had been over for a Lenten dinner of fish and macaroni and cheese. She brought some fruit and ginger bread. During our discussion after dinner Jane said something that caused Cheryl to go to her office to retrieve a church bulletin. She stumbled and fell into the corner of the cabinet that props the printer off the floor. She bruised her chest. It was hurting her today. She moped around for a while and I convinced her to take an Ibuprofen to relieve the ache a bit.

After a bit she announced that she did not feel up to going to church. A bit later I suggested that we go to our favorite park to walk along the riverbank. We did that. A wedding party was celebrating and taking pictures.

We stopped at Nick’s Cafe in Cleves, Ohio for an early dinner – late lunch.

We took the scenic route home and I suggested we stop for ice cream. Aglemisis’ is very small in Montgomery. We got ice cream to go and sat in the car for a time and just talked. When we came home she laid down and rested for a bit.

When she got up, she looked through her Christmas cards. She was comforted by that activity.

It is an odd disease – Parkinson’s

She fell on Sunday

A car door, a bush, a rock decoration, the walkway, splat… A literal wandering into the weeds caused her to trip over a rock decoration at the end of my daughter’s driveway and fall face first on the concrete walkway at the front of their property.

Poop!
