First of all I want to thank Anni at Hootin' Anni's for creating my beautiful header. Anni made this for me some time ago but I just never got it put up. I love it! I is elegant and looks old fashioned. The graphics she used go great with the name of my blog. Thanks, Anni. You're such a talented lady.
Well, it seems that blogger won't upload my photos. Mmm! My plans for my post just went down the drain because Show and Tell Friday needs photos for the "Show" part of it.
Well, it was a beautiful spring day here - warm and sunny, though the wind was still a bit chilly. Meeko and I went for a walk along the canal. Yesterday the birds were singing and flitting about everywhere. Today we didn't see any birds except sparrows. I was hoping to see the red-winged blackbirds that live there. They are usually plentiful, but they must have been up to other business today. Usually as Meeko and I approach, they scold us for disturbing them. As we advance they fly a little further along the path and continue their scolding. Meeko pays no attention. He just prances along with his tail up and totally ignores them. It is hilarious.
I had an appointment with the eye specialist this morning and I'm not too happy with the result. It was to get my pressures checked as I have glaucoma. Well, the pressure in my left eye was 21 while in my right eye it was only 14. The left eye is the one that got infected when I had my laser treatment for glaucoma a few years ago. The pressure tends to stay higher in that eye, but usually only about 17. I have to be very careful because I also have diabetes, which can cause blindness. So I have a double whammy to deal with here. If there's one thing I do not want to do, it's to go blind. Right now my eyesight is pretty good and my periphial vision is good. I want it to stay that way. So please pray that my pressures will return to the lower reading. The doctor is now reviewing my file. I'm hoping he doesn't come up with any brilliant ideas like laser treatment again. I had such a difficult time with that and said I would never have it again. As it stands now, I still feel the same way.
Not much else for news. It's to be 23 C tomorrow and I'm hoping to get out in the garden and get things cleaned up a bit. Enjoy the nice weather and have a wonderful Friday.
