Spring can't come any too soon. I want to be able to open my window and enjoy the fresh air. I haven't decided if I want to try to raise a live flower or get an artificial one to decorate my apartment with. 
A boy and his horse. You probably will get tired of seeing them. He has no problems catching Hot Rod, but dad has a problem catching him. They have really jelled and he is already talking about how to pack the trailer to go to state this year.  I am working hard so that I can go watch him ride this summer. They are already riding when the weather permits. They build him a shed to where he can get in out of the bad weather.  My grandson is getting taller and thinks that it is funny that he is as tall as me. He sure does have long legs. Aren't the little FedEx trucks cute? My daughter-in-law made them for a little boy whose dad works for fedex.  Well, it is time to go do my walk and ride the bike so I will be back later.

Checking In

    This was the view outside of my window when I lived in a studio apartment getting physical therapy. I have gone from a wheelchair to a walker, to using a quad cane in 5 months. I haven't got to my goal yet where I want to walk like I did before my accident. I still haven't got to go home. I can go up steps better than going down using the cane and hanging on to the railing. I will have to have my knee replaced down the road, but I want to postpone that as long as possible.
I am still apartment living but I get to do my own cooking, cleaning, working on getting ready to go home. Where I  am at now has an exercise room where I can ride the bike, plus a walking trail which is a 1/5 mile around. I started at once around the track than riding the bike. I will do that for a while then increase it. My apartment is aways from the outside door so I also get exercise there. They even have an indoor pool.
    My picture of my door was made by my 13-year-old grandson. He told me that it was really easy to make. It is made out of card stock, folding and cutting it. It took him no time at all to do it. He is looking forward to Spring and riding his horse again. We have had some nice weather so he has ridden then, but not during the cold weather.
   My family has been a god sent for me. They helped me in more ways than I can count. I just know they still determine that I won't get another car. They have brought me food, taken me where I needed to go.
   I have still been embroidering to help spend the days. I started a baby quilt. I don't know how long that will take me to do it.
   I know it has been a while since I have been here, but I haven't had my computer and then it went down. I don't like typing on a tablet. I have to be careful typing on the tablet because what I think I have typed doesn't turn out that way.
   My grandsons are officially as tall as me or taller. I will soon have to look up at all three of them. They think it is funny. My oldest is getting to be my chauffer when he isn't working. He went to school for a semester, but it wasn't like he thought it would be. He is working that is the main thing.
  Sorry about the long post but it will give you an idea of what I have been doing.  Take care.
