What I See with my NEW Eye!

Okay, talking about what I see with my new eye may be rather melodramatic. I still have the same left eye, but the new lens put in there makes it feel like a new eye. Wow! Whites are dazzling white! Colours are so vivid! Everything about two feet from my face is quite sharply focused […]


Walking with Rita

We seem to be only managing one morning walk per week, instead of the two we wanted to do before we started. However, each time we learn a bit more about each other, and our friendship is growing. This morning, when Rita called ahead, she asked about marigold seeds. I’ve got lots, so I was […]


Transitioning into LEAP

I’m transitioning into LEAP 42.2. What that means is that I’m moving from my computer system of the last two years or so, into a new one that I’ve installed on the same hard drive. They are very similar, designed by the same people, but LEAP is much more advanced, so I have to do […]


Rita’s Advice Works!

Rita’s advice works! I asked her this morning, as we walked around a long block (for the first time at last), what to do about all the tent caterpillars crawling over everything in my backyard. I have to be careful to brush away the bugs before I grasp a garden spade or hoe, else I’ll […]


Making My Garden

I have been making my garden, or seeding it, this past holiday weekend. I got my prayer answered in that a teen came on Wednesday to go through the garden with a rototiller that he borrowed from his grandfather. Colton did a really good job and in record time. I was quite impressed with him. […]

My Wee Yard Sale Results

It was a gloriously sunny day. I was up at 6 and by 7 was setting up my make-shift tables with stacking stools, boxes and wide boards. My stock was almost all in the front porch, so I didn’t have to carry the boxes and things far, and I made a point of trying not […]


Seeing Things

I’ve been seeing things – unusual things that may not really be there! Don’t be afraid of me; I’m not dangerous. But I have been a little worried about my vision. On Saturday morning I woke up with a stiff neck, but I got dressed and got my laundry going downstairs, and a bit later, […]

The Little Ordinary Things of Easter

Did you have a big dramatic Easter weekend? No? Mine was filled with the little ordinary things of Easter. But the point is that we are celebrating and remembering the really big climax of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. We can’t match that drama with new experiences, can we? But we can rejoice in, and […]
