The "E"yes Have It!

This week over at Miss Jenny's, our class letter is "E" - so the little set of matching Eye balls has made a return...

You might remember them from back in October when I had the first cataract surgery...had the left eye done on Tuesday of this week and now have a matched set...so brighter days ahead and hoping for clearer vision. Just a smooth, quick procedure - all of 10 minutes or so, a little cup of ginger ale with a straw to speed me on my way and a huge pair of dark sunglasses to dampen the glare off the white snow.


Today is dedicated to doing a few more simple Christmasy tasks - and doctor says no snow shoveling for a week...aw shucks:o) 


Be sure to visit the other "E" postings for Alphabe-Thursday.
Wishing everyone days filled with clarity and light.
Back soon...

  1. I'm so happy for you Pat - this second procedure will have you stitching again in no time!
    I had to smile at your comment on the little ceramic tree. I can't believe that it made it through all our moves, across Canada, up and down the USA and back and forth to Germany twice. There was a time when I wasn't fussy about it but now I treasure it!

  18. The eyeballs made me laugh.

    The only problem is now you'll be able to see the dust around the house more clearly.

    I mean...ummm...if there is any!

    Thanks for an entertaining link for the letter "E" this week.

    A+
