Sunday was cold and windy. I had so much to get done in the morning which included electric fence repairs.
My Grand Plan was to head out early to the Reserve and see if I could spot red wing black birds and maybe check out the ponds to see if any geese or swans had arrived.
All that went ka-put. After lunch I had to call my elder friend in Alabama. She was having a bad day so we talked for an hour. She is in her mid 80's and was telling me that she had not gone out to do anything in weeks. She forgets to eat, she is isolated she says, and depressed. She used to be a librarian, so I asked her where the nearest library was. Her answer was 3 blocks. I asked her if she'd go to the library and just go find a book and sit at a table and read.
Why? She asked me. I told her...so she could be around other humans.
I asked her to visit her meal site once this week and text me what she had to eat. I gave her two assignments or as I called them: Challenges for Motivation.
I had to agree to let her set a Challenge for me too. She wanted me to send her a photo of me in Mobility Class.
So today I was at CF and did Mobility Class afterwards. My coach Angie took these photos for me.
The huge surprise was the icicles on the rocks.
I do wonder how I can help my friend and motivate her to go to the meal site and interact with others.
