Getting Prepared

Lily of the Valley Butterflies

Well, I am getting preparing for tomorrow's cataract surgery. The first one was successful so hope this one will go all right, too. You have to put two different kinds of eye drops in 4 times a day and it goes on for weeks so I have graphs taped up on the bathroom cabinet so I can mark off that I got the right drop put in the correct eye. You have to mark it down when you get as old as I am or you wouldn't remember which drop went in which eye. Oh, getting old is fun!

My husband isn't very happy about getting old, either. He has always been so active and is not doing a very good job of cutting back. The only good part of it is that we are doing it together. Last Thurs. after we got home from the hospital, he was sitting in a chair on the patio in the sun. Our oldest grandson dropped in to eat his lunch here before he went to a meeting & he said he knew something was wrong because Grandpa was sitting in a chair! He has been trying to get the field mowed and sitting on the tractor makes his back hurt so he didn't get a lot of sleep last night. At least tomorrow he will have to sit for awhile when he is waiting for me to be finished at the surgery center!

Wow, we had some really warm weather over the weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I know it broke records, etc. but I loved the heat.

I love eagles! As you can probably tell if you have looked at my themes. They are so majestic. I have been working on some 4th of July themes and love making them. I love our country so much but am just a bit dissatisfied with the way things are going right now. I would think the people that are elected to office would at least try to make decisions that are best for all the people. But they don't. They make their decisions to protect the people that put money into their PAC's. They are afraid of the Koch brothers and all of their money! 

I am in the process of submitting a theme I am very proud of, called Freedom for All. I also made a wallpaper to match and the link will be in the description of the theme. And I will post it here as soon as it is on line.

Time to check on my husband and see what to fix for dinner. Made him a peach pie yesterday and he is enjoying that.

Bad Morning!

Poppy Season

Well, today started out horribly but could have been much worse. My husband woke me at 6:30 and said he thought he was having a heart attack. It was worse this time than the AFib attacks he has had before because he had heart pains with it, so I called 911 as I was so shaky I couldn't drive so I rode in the ambulance. They were ever so nice and supportive to me and wonderful to my dear husband. We were lucky this time again. It wasn't a heart attack...and they were able to shock him and get his heart back in rhythm with one shock this time. After the 2nd blood test that showed no heart attack, our son brought us home. I am to the point I keep a go bag ready to take with us when this happens. But I didn't take a sweatshirt or jacket because it was supposed to be hot. Luckily our son had a big heavy hooded sweatshirt in his car and I put that on. It went to my knees but they were cold, too, so that was OK. So I am adding a sweatshirt to the go bag!

Now I have just been trying to keep him in a chair resting but not having a lot of luck with that. But it takes a lot out of both of us. Him, of course, more than me, but when I get stressed my Fibromyalgia kicks in. But I am not complaining...we got to come home.

Going to go sit in the sun with him for awhile.

Summer Coming!

Romantic Cats

I think Summer arrives tomorrow!

Hope you all had a nice Father's Day week end. We had a really nice one. Went to our son's camping site at Birch Bay for a lovely lunch and fun with grand kids and great grand kids. The 5 great grand kids got to go in the swimming pool and had a ball. Our oldest grandson jumped in and joined them! It was so neat to see the kids weren't afraid of the water at all, but then they have all taken swim lessons. The weather wasn't very warm but the water was and they had a ball.

Our youngest son and one of his sons (the one that built my computer)  came and installed all new LED lights in my husband's shop. So he has lots of lighting that will last a long time and cost a lot less!

Our week end weather was not good at all. Cold and yucky, especially Sunday. Today is supposed to be better but the TV weatherman says we are in for a cold spell! I thought we were already in one! I am so ready for some nice warm sunny weather that will last more than one or two days!

My cataract surgery was successful! Now I have to have the other eye done and then get new lenses for my glasses. I really couldn't tell for sure until last night and we were watching a movie on TV and I took my glasses off and shut my right eye and couldn't believe how much clearer the picture was in the eye that was done compared to the other eye. But with my glasses on the left eye is kind of fuzzy because the lens needs changed. I don't want to get it changed until after the other eye is done, though because I will have to be without them for about a week while they get the new lenses in and back to me.

Being on the computer now is really kind of hard because of this so I doubt if I will be working as much for the next couple weeks till everything is done and my new glasses are back.

If you read an earlier blog I mentioned our daughter's 19 year old cat and her failing health. She quit eating, etc. so she couldn't see Sam suffer anymore and had two women veterinarians come to her house and put her to sleep. Our daughter got to hold her through the whole thing. My husband had made a beautiful wooden coffin for Sam with her name and some flowers on it. When she called and said Sam was gone, her Dad was ready to go in and bury her so she can see Sam's grave from her kitchen window. We had two great grand kids here at the time so I had to try to explain what was happening. Kitty heaven and all that. They knew about kitty heaven because they have lost kittens but they couldn't understand how the body was going into the ground but the kitty was going to kitty heaven! So I tried to explain how the soul went to heaven but they didn't know what the soul was so I said it was her Inner Being. Our great grandaughter (almost 5) asked me what a NBG was! I didn't know what terms her parents had used so I was kind of lost. When I was telling their Mom about it, she said she had explained it as the spirit so now I know what to say if it every happens again.

Time to fix lunch so I will sign off for now and maybe work on a few 4th of July themes, if my eyes will let me.

Hope you all have a great week....

Happy Fathers Day!

Purple Bird & Butterfly

I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Fathers Day. Since we will be at the beach tomorrow I hope the weather will be warm.

I got the patch off my eye yesterday and everything was still pretty blurry. But that is normal they said. I have to wear a protective pad that has tiny holes in it over my eye at night so I won't accidentally hit or scratch it. This morning when I woke up I automatically looked at the clock and instead of seeing a blurry blue thing I could actually read it. So it must have worked! Now I will have to decide if/when to get the other eye done.

Don't have much to write about today, so I will get back to work. Call or visit your Dad if he is still here and if not, think loving thoughts about him. I know I will my Dad.

One Down One to Go

Soaring Eagle

Well, I had one cataract removed this morning and will see how much better I can see before I decide on the second one. It was really quite easy. The only problem I am having now is my glasses don't fit over the patch very well and my depth perception is not there! I go to the Doctor tomorrow to get the patch off and will see how it goes.

I was hoping I could work on themes today but I doubt very much if I can. Just can't see that well! Doubt if I can read, either so don't know what I am going to do to keep busy. I just can't stand not having something to do! Made a pie yesterday so can't do that. 

I hope everyone is getting ready for Father's Day. We are going to our son's camping place on Sat. so we are hoping for good weather. Will probably be at our daughter's on Sunday sometime since her kids are coming up to spend part of Sunday with their father. So it will depend on what time every one is there. Looking forward to both days.

Well, I just can't see well enough to do anything more so am going to go sit down and twiddle my thumbs, I guess. I doubt if I can read either.

Have a super day and will try to get back before Father's Day.

The article with video is up!



Bright Light Lines

 Well, the article/interview with me a couple weeks ago is up so I am posting the link. You can see how I live and what I do. I think they did a really great job of making the video with the little bear WELCOME we have by the front door and the flag flying in the background at the end. 

So here is the link:

Have a great week, everyone!

Fathers Day!

White Wolf Mates

When I updated my blog for June I totally forgot about Fathers Day! My Bad!

Had a very nice week end. Weather was pretty good. Yesterday was a beautiful day and we got to see our great grandson play lacrosse and watch them win 5 - 0! I really love watching him play, especially if the weather is nice. The first game we went to this season was very cold, very rainy and very muddy! 

Our daughter is going through a very hard time right now. As I mentioned in an earlier post, her best friend/cat would be 19 in August is going through the slow process of her body shutting down. Our daughter is very tender hearted and emotional. So she spent the week end at home taking care of Sammy. And it was hard for her to leave home and go to work this morning.

On that sad note I will get back to work. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
