My husband's mother lives with us. Every other Friday it's a check-up day for my husband's mother. She is generally in a good shape without having any serious inner organ diseases. She keeps her own schedule every day starting her day in the morning with sweeping up fallen leaves in our garden. Just due to the aging, she rarely goes out of the house for herself for shopping or visiting friends as she used to do before. When we lose any opportunities to expose ourselves to outward world, we feel isolated and finally got frustrated. She sometimes get into that mood without knowing what to do all by herself. For her, visiting her home doctor every other week is a day to dress a little bit holiday clothes rather than to see a doctor.
It won't take long until her doctor finishes seeing her since she rarely has any problems except just minor troubles.
So after the doctor, she makes it a rule to drop by to the department store right in the station building to enjoy window shopping or sometimes enjoy picking up some of her favorite sweets.
When she feels her feet are all right, she loves to go down to the outdoor garden in the station building which is taken so much good care of by the gardeners. She walks with her stick very slowly but can't walk too long. Yet she prefer to walk rather than to sit in a wheelchair.
Today there we found the new appearance of the arrangements of lovely spring flowers. Too bad I left my digital camera in the car. I took some with my mobile phone camera which were not so good results but still good enough for her to enjoy afterwards at home to look at. There were little dolls sitting in the flowers here and there. They were so cute. We'd love to have some in our garden.
