a little outing ...

park near our condo, pic taken today

i got leo out of the house today... yay!!!! ... it was almost 2 p.m. before we left home to vote, but leo was motivated to go ... on the way home, i asked him if he wanted to continue on for a little drive ... i could show him all the new houses that had gone up over the summer ... surprisingly - he said ok! so i leisurely drove the car on the same streets i ride my bike ... we chatted about all the new construction ... leo even asked if i would go around the block on the newest street -where most of the development was - he wanted a better look ...

i enjoyed having leo out somewhere with me ... somewhere other than a doctors' office ... i am on my own so much, that it thrills me when leo wants to come along!

that was my sweet moment of the day ...

just sharing ....


Love puts the fun in together,
the sad in apart,
and the joy in a heart.

That was so nice Saija, both of you out together.

My Mum has not been out since a long time.

She went toa cottage prayer meeting a month ago, so its not too bad.

Such a good report. Hope you can enjoy more of these moments. Just getting my Mickey home from Bi-pass heart surgery we are very thankful of "togetherness" and having each other.

What a gorgeous site--we've had horrid fires and our friends and families evacuated from there homes--all well and safe as of today! So this precious blog with your scenery and your trust in the Lord is a real uplift! Thank you--so glad Leo enjoyed it with you today. He knows your need.

I'm glad you and Leo had such a good day. The picture is beautiful...I really miss having that kind of autumn color where I live.

I am so glad you and Leo got out together on this beautiful day. That is just great. I hope maybe he will feel like going some more, before the freezing cold comes!
Hugs,

Indeed.
It is fun to share your experiences with him later. But it's more fun to share them with him in the moment. I know what you mean.

I'm so very glad for you that you and Leo were able to enjoy the drive together...
Life is full of small pleasures...and it's so nice when you can enjoy a pleasure with the one you love...

Dear Saija,
I am so happy for the both of you.
I think I know the value of such a rare trip.
(Had some with my Dad, you know.)
Also a good thing you went voting.
That is the least we can do to protect democracy; vote.

Glad you were able to have this outing...one thing life has taught me is to enjoy the very small things!! One reason we feed the birds and squirrels on our deck...much entertainment for a small price!!

What a nice afternoon! I went out and voted on Tuesday morning -- we have early voting here, and I just know that the lines on election day are going to be insane! I'm so glad I got it out of the way early.
