    Yesterday, we went to MIL. This includes stairs. Then out to a Cambodian lunch. Then Trader Joe’s and home for me. That was enough. I had to put things away and do two loads of laundry. And it was in the mid-80’s. I was good and tired and slept well. I’m grateful to be able to be up and out.

    You are both great. I know what it feels like to accomplish movement.

    This afternoon we went to Home Depot to buy the things I need to convert my raised bed to a “low tunnel” for the fall/winter garden. Like this:

    Trying to find the simple things needed is not easy at our store. Check me off for a big dose of walking on concrete.

    Ann, maybe you can post a picture of your "low tunnel" when you get it finished. How tall is yours going to be. It can get really cold in Michigan so if this man can have a fall/winter garden surely you can.

    My day - Drove by neighbors and left book from book club on the inside of her storm door. Then went to shopping center to Belks, lower floor only. Bought bedroom slippers. They only had one pair in my size, so I ordered another pair to be delivered to my house. Then went to makeup counter and got some lipstick and face cream, then went over and looked at all the pocketbooks. Got one that was on sale for 40% off. In there an hour. Met middle brother and his wife for dinner from 5 to 6. We set outside on covered patio in 87 degree heat (no humidity). I was not happy about that, but they insisted that since there was very little humidity I could do it. (when did they become MS experts?) Then on to grocery store where I stayed for another hour. I came home and put groceries away, got out of good clothes and came on internet to see all of you.

    I had a full afternoon yesterday, but just can't go two days in a row. Suffering a little from it today and didn't get up until late. Also, got very red eyes from allergies. I put drops in, but they hurt. I think it was sitting out while eating. The covered patio was surrounded by bushes and a few flowers.

    I haven’t shopped in a proper department store like that for many years, Virginia. I was in Macy’s and Nordstrom’s before my wedding but Macy’s was kind of tacky with almost no service and Nordstrom’s had sample dresses but not many sizes of each. They were encouraging me to e-shop and have things delivered.

    I do remember the amount of walking and standing in a department store. I was always happy when they had a lunch room to get a break. Glad you were able to last so long.

    I am sorry that your family does not take your MS limitations/precautions seriously. Same in my family.

    I plan the low tunnel for about 2 feet high at center. You can build these high enough for a door. Those are called, “hoop houses” and serve as greenhouses.

    Ann you and Linda must have strong legs. It is kind of like when I had my dog I use to stoop all the time to pet her and my upper legs were very strong. Y'all's must be the same way. Even if you use something to kneel on you are still getting up and down which makes the legs strong.

    Sunshine, I would think has strong legs from swimming. My stooping and kneeling was pre MS days.
