Good morning... Well, another week has gone by and it looks to be another hot, sunny day in my corner of the world.
Yesterday was our wedding anniversary - would you believe we've been married for 51 years? When I look at the wedding photos, it's hard to connect the 2 18-year-old kids with the adults we've become. I would never have imagined all the things that have taken place in the years since that night 51 years ago. It's kind of mind-boggling when I think back over it all.
Anyway, it's time to get off memory lane and come back to today. I've been busy this week, but it doesn't really seem like I have a lot to show for it... how does that work? lol
I did go back to the eye doctor and although he says my eye is dry and I need to continue using drops to moisten it, the injury is healed and my eyes are otherwise healthy, except for a small cataract in each eye that we will keep an eye on. I wasn't happy with the eye exam (vision part) I received. It wasn't done by the doctor; it was done by a technician - maybe they can do that these days, but she said my prescription hadn't changed, though when I received a copy of it so I can get new glasses anyway, it's not the same as my old prescription - not even close. In fact, it says I have 20/20 vision in my right eye and I know that's not true. It also says I don't have astigmatism; that's not true either as I've had astigmatism since I was a child - they don't miraculously disappear... Another thing was that the vision was not clear in either eye when she was done with the corrections she produced. When I mentioned that, she said it was because I have cataracts and vision is never clear with cataracts. I don't believe that, because everything I've read says that vision can be improved with glasses until the cataracts are too large - the doctor had told me just minutes before that my cataracts are small and not large enough to cause a problem yet... Anyway, needless to say, I won't spend money on a pair of glasses using that prescription. I have an appointment for next week with an optometrist; we'll see if the prescription changes or not... I will then decide what to do about this exam.
So, that was quite an experience - one I don't care to repeat right away... :-)
I spent some time in my shop learning how to make ink pens. I posted some photos if anyone has time to take a look, feel free. I'm also learning how to do leather work - bracelets, belts, etc. Things to stay busy with and maybe even make a few bucks, at some point.
Weight-wise I've stayed the same. I haven't done a lot in the line of exercise, though I've been trying to start walking a bit more because my winter neighbor will be coming back in a few weeks and we'll start walking most days. That's usually a couple of miles and I'm too out of shape right now to do that. I'll need to work up to it.
My diet hasn't been too bad, but not the best either. I really need to back on track again, so I'll be working on that, as well. Summer just isn't all that great for me, for some reason.
Anyway... that's me - what about all of you? I hope you're doing better than I am.
Today, we're off to have a bit of fun in St Augustine - a late anniversary celebration, so I'm off to get things ready to go.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
