Summer Cat

Thinking back to earlier this week – I guess I really don’t notice my eyes. They are just there. My glasses are on/off my face depending on what I am doing and which method seems to get the best result.  Obviously, driving a car calls for glasses. Knitting or stitching? Depends.

I have a relatively simple scarf that I have been knitting on Sundays when I head to Avenue Yarns for the Sunday morning knit group.  I think I have maybe an hour left on it. Then I probably should find another partially done project and work on that…

I am ending the day at 88% on the Summer Cat – another Barbara Ana with only about 700 stitches to go. The rest of the cat’s face, the hat and all the things she is holding in her second hand.

Oh, yes, eyes. My left eye still feels weird. Maybe it is just the bit of ache or soreness, but most of the time it feels like almost like my 20s when I wore contacts – just the feeling that something just might be floating there. There isn’t. No signs of infection, irritation or subluxation of the newly implanted lens. But it is coming close to driving me nuts… Hopefully it will be better tomorrow….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    Interesting. I remember my mother having cataract surgery. I had been telling her “those colours do not go together” and her insisting that they did. After the surgery she had to admit I had been right and also said, “I can see “blue” again.”
