Beaver Moon

My cataract surgery was successful. Now I find myself pushing imaginary glasses up on my nose. A person is blessed when they have a dear friend who will get up super early and haul them to and from a surgery center. Thanks to my friend Loretta who did just that for me, and to my daughter and granddaughter who brought over supper. Thanks also for all the well wishes and thoughtful checking in. It is very appreciated. I don’t know exactly why I was so scared for this procedure, but I was. Oh well. It is over! I have four bruises where they tried unsuccessfully to put in the IV, but you know – fifth time is the charm. Arghh!

Now I can get back to my regular exercise routine and eating the way I normally do when I’m not standing in front of a ballot box all day. Thank goodness. I am so glad to have both those events over with. Not one to sit around, I have a few days before my next adventure, so now it’s time to get the laundry done, pay the bills, and pack. Another holiday is around the corner, as is my youngest grandchild’s first birthday. Now where did this year go? She just started walking. Look out Mom and Dad!

With advice from a good friend, I fixed a leaking water handle in the bathroom. Awesome as always to fix things myself, despite having to text several pictures and ask several questions, both at home and from the hardware store. Still – it’s done. There is another one leaking in a different bathroom, and now that I know how to do it, look out!

They say this next full moon, tomorrow night, is going to be a doozy! Do yourself a favor. Get up and go outside to see it. Take a little walk by moonlight. You’ll be amazed, I promise. Native American’s call this the Beaver Moon or the Frost Moon.

and so it goes…
