Gorgeous Fall Day
Tuesday, September 27, 2016      16 comments

And I'm sneaking off to play golf. Yay!! Going to take my binoculars too, for a little covert bird watching. The blue jays are flocking (mine stay all winter but plenty are less hardy and depart). I'm also seeing lots of hawks gathering f... Read more

I am wearing my maple leaf pants again (feeling pretty patriotic, actually: Kate, who's visiting BC, was wearing a red and white dress today which the fashion press described as a tribute to Canada . . . ). DH just poured me a glass of win... Read more

On Simmer
Friday, September 23, 2016      19 comments

I'm a soup maker. And soups need to simmer, right? I'm also a big believer in the "simmer" approach to problem solving. Frequently when I'm troubled by something, or trying to figure something out, if I head to the gym -- heck,... Read more

Grateful
Wednesday, September 21, 2016      21 comments

Grateful for a good doctor. Quick appointment. Her kind concern. (And: at no charge.) Grateful I can afford the prescribed meds. Without second thought. (They are NOT free.) Grateful that the meds are working well. Grateful th... Read more
Much better thank you!

The new eye drops are doing the trick! In Canada (but I gather maybe not elsewhere?) it's possible to buy OTC eye drops with "mild" antibiotic and that's what I'd done on Sunday, rather than going to an emergency clinic. Plus special eyelid cl... Read more
A sight for sore eyes?
Monday, September 19, 2016      12 comments

Remember that expression? Gotta say, I'm fighting an eye infection in both eyes. And these sore eyes aren't seeing much very clearly. The OTC antibiotic eye drops didn't help, so got to the doctor today for a stronger prescription. R... Read more

Having a tough time, professionally. Having a tough time, personally. The details? Don't matter so much. I'm doing all I can. These situations will work themselves out. Eventually. And I'm choosing not to worry about them, as best... Read more

Wednesday, September 14, 2016      23 comments

Hey, it's alliterative -- maybe not Dancing in the Dark, but you can see if from there. Last night DH and I managed to get away and on the golf course by 6:15. It was glorious: still just the right temperature for shorts with a golf shirt ... Read more
