One cataract removed today and the next one in two weeks – it was virtually painless. I got there at 10:15, went to the surgery room at noon and left the building at 1:15. Rick dropped me off this morning and Becky picked me up and we went to lunch.
I had an appointment at the clinic at 2:30, they took off the eye patch, put in more drops and sent me on my way. Then we went to Target. I took this picture of a shelf of beautiful towels.
This color combo suggested a quilt to me – from pale pink to pale coral to rose to maroon with gray as a neutral. Isn’t it pretty? I can find inspiration just about anywhere.
Oh, I forgot – at the surgery center, my nurse knew exactly which place I lived at because the fence was so noticeable from the highway. And when I got to the eye clinic, the gal testing my eye asked if I was from the quilt shop, not because she recognized me but she knew my voice which is not necessarily a good thing. I am too loud without even trying!
I also had to check out the end cap of bestsellers at Target. See any that look good? Right after the first of the month I’ll ask you for titles of the good books you’ve read in the past 30 days so get ready to update our book list.
After we left Target we attended Gayle’s celebration of life hosted by her sons, Shane and Chris. This was held at the community room in the Clear Lake bandshell and Becky and I saw and talked to many of her family and friends. I was home by 6 pm and I think it was a full day. I really miss Gayle though and tomorrow I’ll reminisce in print here on the blog.
Yesterday I forgot to post this picture with the other animal photos. Hazel wants me to throw the ball and she is being very vocal about it.
Tomorrow will be even better!
