Please join me in a bit of conversation. What is on your mind? I’d like to hear from you. In the meantime, I’ll ramble.
Things have been chaotic and energy consuming. The elephant in my room is my wheelchair, to which you will notice I am not confined. Trust me, it’s just out of the picture frame. But it is fatigue that bothers me most, and I’m finally at the end of an MS exacerbation. Thank goodness.
I am getting a new writing desk! Since we moved two years ago, I have captained the small desk in the kitchen that should belong to Sandy. (The desk, not the kitchen. We’ll talk about the kitchen in an upcoming post.) It will be better for both of us, and I will have more opportunity to plan and write.
Have you had your eyes checked lately? This is an eye doc talking, and I’m reminding you to get it done. I had a very thorough, dilated exam last week. Glaucoma is something that needs to be watched for, as for most people it can be stopped or slowed. It is important to check the retinas and the optic nerves. Of course, there is the chart and “which is better, 3 or 4?.” By the way, it is not a test with correct answers, and they might look alike. I had a slight change in my glasses Rx. The doctor and I talked about my light sensitivity and how to manage it. She had some helpful ideas. So go – just do it, please.
It has been a rock and roll afternoon with the severe weather alerts going off every few minutes. We had planned to go to Epcot today, but the forecast called for severe storms, which we are getting as we speak. It feels like a hurricane with intense lightning and thunder. The flower and patio show is going on. We have a few days open, so maybe I can share a few pictures.
This has reached the end. There is only so much you want to hear. Thank you for stopping by. Step or roll out onto the lanai and join me on the outdoor sofa. There is a fridge in the garage stocked with whatever you’d like – and dark chocolate.

Legs crossed, hands folded on the knee. The bottom photo is 2 Hershey’s Kisses with purple wrappers indicating the dark chocolate.
