Sat. morning is time Mrs.F.G. and I can spend together with no therapy sessions scheduled. Today was a beautiful day here, so we headed downstairs on the elevator (I'm getting better at handling elevators).
We stopped in the coffee shop/cafeteria and picked up two coffees and two donuts. Maneuvered through the exit doors to the patio outside - sunny and warm. Then sat in the picnic shelter while we finished our coffees, surrounded by a foraging flock of House Sparrows. A good chance to just chat.
Presently we headed out to the further reaches of the garden, through a tunnel of bright yellow Cup Plants. The small fountain is always enjoyable. There's something special about the sound of running water.
Back to the main path we went and stopped by the raised beds to check for butterflies. No luck today. Then we realized what time it was and hurried back in. My lunch was getting cold. Shortly after Mrs. F.G. left for home. I just heard from her, 4.5 hours later.
The other day when she was here we went in search of the art studios for veterans. Amazing - three big studios for pottery, fabric and wood-working, all cluttered with projects, equipment and finished work. What great facilities!
