Seeing


Here’s looking at me. I saw my image in the mirror with my left eye. This used to be a blur!

We got up at 3:30 and 4:30 respectively. Chris can do an early rising. Not me. I’ve been a mess all day. But a happy one.

My appointment was at 7:30. We got there early and we’re home by 10:30. I’ve had two naps and counting.

But the day after recheck proved the surgery successful. I thought I was still seeing nothing but blur. And I expected nothing more or less. The doctor had warned me that mine was the worst cataract she’d ever seen. So she expects a slow recovery.

The assistant put up the eye chart. Last time I saw one with the left eye, even the largest E was a black blur on white. I could only see blotches of colors. Pretty but not meaningful.

Today I read the big E. Then she put up smaller font.  I could read the top row. Then she handed me a holey thing to look through and by moving my eye around I found holes that helped me read the rest of the rows. That was exciting!!!!!

So my day, when awake, has been me winking to see what I can see now. Some words on the television, hands on the clock. The numbers are getting clearer as the day wears on.

What a great adventure for this tired lady! It’s like a slow Christmas!

I have another recheck a week from Thursday. Then the right eye gets done on the 24th.

So many 5 hour drives and not a beach in sight.  But the view was beautiful for December, not mid-May.

Lots of black ice.
Our driver was careful. The trip was tiring but not as painful as it used to be.

Here’s looking at everything kid!

Didn’t finish but made more progress.

I hope you all had a

I sure did. Love my kids, especially now that they’re adults!

Sock on the right will be finished tomorrow. Hopefully, the left will be done by Monday.

Speaking of Monday, my first cataract surgery is happening at 12:55pm. I’m nervous and excited.

Will I finish this weekend? I hope so.

The writing is doing okay. The memory not so much. I took the readers through all my 11 houses the first couple years of my married life in my twenties. I suddenly remembered a room that my mother-in-law help me rescue but I couldn’t remember which home it was in. Suddenly I realized I had left out the first home we bought. There was the room!

May has gotten off on quite the path! May Day, May the Fourth Be With You, Cinco de Mayo, not a flower or margarita in sight. Tons of winds and a little rain.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “zip, zero, zilch.” Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you use all three. Have fun!

Zipping through hours of Diamond Painting and loom knitting socks. And I am having so much fun listening to book 8 of Outlander.

When our weather guy gave us the latest news on our drought, we found zero improvement. We are still at “exceptional” status. Worse than anywhere in Oregon. We are in the Outback or desert. But this has been the driest year since we got here. I have to admit to being really afraid of fire season coming up.

Now, I’ve got to confess, I’ve had yWriter7 open since I woke up early this morning. Zilch. But I promise all of us I will meet my 20k goal before bed tonight. Otherwise I count on zero, zip, zilch sleep.

Autobiographies/memoirs are far harder than making it up in you head and playing with imaginary friends!
Whew! 20,100 words! And that only has me to age 21. So many I’ll set the goal for 20k each month to keep it moving

At least I can sleep tonight.


Finished bath mitt.

I found a cotton sock yarn and started a pair of toes.

I didn’t work on my dragon today. But my progress as of yesterday looked like this.

The house is still standing despite 65mph winds. And electric storm. And once that settled slushy snow played around outside.

Four seasons in a day!

No writing. That may be a morning job. I’ll let you know tomorrow. Guilt isn’t a good motivation.  Music fits in the same category. I need to work out a schedule for these things.

My friend shared this with me. I thought it was cool!

Fresh off the loom;

Spa socks! Because they are cotton they are great after shower and lotion.

Diamond Painting is the new meditation.

It feels like I’m painting geodes. I love these colors!

By the way, it was pretty today, though cold. But snow is expected tonight in an hour. Crazy ‘Spring’ weather.

Thus Thursday


It was so pretty last night. I wanted to go out and play. I wanted to put up Christmas lights. Instead I enjoyed Kali’s many ‘outsides’. I let the snow hit me in the face and land on my clothes.
Morning beauty. But too icy to walk now. Two hours later no snow except on the north side of the house. Green is showing up. Mud is driveway and roads. More expected tomorrow.
Meanwhile, dragon is coming along.

But now I need to get back to writing. This is me knuckling down.

That would be Teddy my Ginger! Yeah, he’s a sun soaker.

One-Liner Wednesday


One-Liner Wednesday

Found on Facebook. True story! It has been constantly snowing, sometimes sticking, always windy. And cold!

Ta Da Tuesday


Not sure I like this. I can’t understand what I’m looking at. I still need to straighten drills, seal, and paint on the frame. I think this set of four dragons will go over my bed.

Here’s the next picture. It is harder to see than the one above.

It’s the process not the end result. So tomorrow I’ll be ‘kitting up’

Oh, and it’s snowing. I’m hoping we’re getting enough to pull us out of an exceptional draught. It sure is cold!

It’s April?

On the home-stretch with the spa slippers. I’d love to find a bunch of this twisted cotton. It feels good to my hands and I bet it’ll feel great to freshly-lotioned feet.
I will probably finish this dragon tomorrow. With this weather, I may never get outside again.
Last night at Kali’s midnight outside. Today snow blizzard conditions so as not to see a mile and then shiny blue skies. Trying to keep track of the season!

I lowered my goal for CampNaNo. 25k instead of 50k. Now I have less pressure and more fun ahead.
