Today was another beautiful spring day. High temperature was 80. Don’t know if this was another record but it was nice. Everything is starting to bloom now. The tulip poplar that had only 2 blooms 2 days ago is approaching full bloom today. Beautiful. Now we are starting to think about fresh local strawberries. It won’t be long.
Today we installed a new medical alarm at Helen’s. We are trying to do everything we can to make her environment as safe as possible so she now has a fall detection pendant/medical alert button. She is suppose to wear it all the time, especially at night. We told her to never, ever take it off. We don’t want her to fall and be in the floor all night.
We took advantage of the beautiful day to get the grill out. We like to keep some grilled smoked sausage in the freezer to add to omelets and have with biscuits and the freezer was empty. Now it is restocked with three pounds. Since we had the grill out anyway, we also decided to have some steaks, potatoes and salad. Good meal. Max really knows how to grill a steak. Of course we have no pictures of the steak. It was eaten as soon as it was done.
We also began reloading FRED today. We never really unloaded everything but today we started sorting and taking the sweatshirts back inside and bring out more short sleeved shirts for Baton Rouge. We plan to take Fred to Tuscaloosa Sunday and leave him there until we head to Baron Rouge in about 10 days so we have to get everything loaded tomorrow. It will be a busy day. We were able to get our 4 miles in again this afternoon. We are getting back in better shape. Hope you all have a great weekend.
