It’s been a while since I posted here. One of the main reasons is that the eyelid stye I had developed in February became a cyst, which began to press on my cornea, which then gave me double vision in that eye, which had been making it difficult to focus, which gave me a headache looking at a computer screen for too long.
I have now had surgery to remove the cyst. Six shots in the eyelid to numb it (yowza) , then some sort of clamp under the eyelid, poking and prodding, cutting and then cauterizing. I passed out. But a little over a week of recovery and my vision seems to be slowly returning to normal and I am immensely grateful.
Martha’s routine colonoscopy was all clear. She has a lot of cancer in her family so it was particularly good news.
The house siding installation is done along with the 8 days of banging and clanging and windows rattling. My furballs are just starting to come out from hiding.
The shutters are up and I’m more or less happy with them. I am still looking for some black hardware to dress them up but so far everything is 3 times more expensive than what the shutters cost me to build. Even faux hardware is ridiculously expensive.
My garden is all laid out. I put landscape barrier down and then make cut outs for the plants which eliminates a lot of weeding.
Usually at this time my seedlings are outside during the day getting fresh air and sunshine but we have had the coldest, snowiest April on record. Every day has been cold, cloudy and gloomy. Next week’s weather is looking a little more promising.
Hope springs eternal. Or there is eternal hope that Spring will eventually arrive.
