Yesterday was busy for us. I had an appointment at the Eye Doctor and was dreading it...sort of. I have the beginning of macular degeneration and a cataract starting. The doctor prescribed some special vitamins for the MD. They are like horse pills. She said for me to take good care of my eyes....take these vitamins, wear sunglasses, eat lots of spinach. I don't smoke, I take statins for cholesterol, I watch my weight, only one thing I have to watch...eating foods high in fat and sugar. My Mom had this disease and at the end of her life...she was blind, so I know first hand how serious this is. I'll do anything to keep my eyesight. My eyes are so important in everything I love to do. Reading, painting, TV, movies, knitting, blogging, just seeing everyday things...seeing my family etc. She gave me a warning and I am heeding it.
I had a hair appointment today and then went to a nearby town to check out a restaurant for Joe and I to celebrate his 75th birthday. It's on the 22nd. I'm treating him to the Coronado Theater tomorrow night to see Willie Nelson. We're both looking forward to that.
I've been watching the news the last couple of days and I feel such sorrow for the people of Japan. It's just heartbreaking....So hard to watch, but I think we feel more a part of caring for them by watching. Our Church prayed for Japan Saturday night. I would imagine Churches all over the world prayed for the same thing at the same time. I heard on the radio today...be careful if you donate to this concern. There are so many scams out there. Be sure you donate to a reputable organization.
Well, have a nice evening everybody...and thank God for your blessings.
