What a fun way to start the day! I was opening my dining room curtains this morning about 7 a.m. and saw several deer running and jumping over the pasture fence. I didn't know what startled them, but then I went to my south window (the big living room window) and saw a bobcat walking down the driveway headed east! He trotted past that pile of logs and past Josh's old silver car and kept on going.

Hopping back into the game! I had my second cataract surgery on Thursday (the 27th). Once again my post-op checkup went well. She said I was showing off, ha ha. I went straight to Walmart and bought some reading glasses. She said it was okay to go ahead and do that. I now have four pairs strewn about the house and car. I may also get a pair of prescription glasses with bifocals. We'll see if my insurance covers that since the cataract surgery doesn't correct my close vision. In fact, it makes it so you can't see things no matter how close you hold them. So you have to use readers. It can be inconvenient having to grab readers every five minutes, but better than my old eye sight!
Time for random photos from my memory card!
The girls are in charge of making sure the horses have enough water. Just one of their chores.
Micah and I are taking the kids to the dentist today. It's about an hour and a half drive, so I'd better be getting ready to go.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll try to visit all of you later today.
Shalom and love to all!

The surgery went well. I got a post-op checkup yesterday and I read the eye chart. She said I was one line above 20/20 and that it would get even better as it healed! Meanwhile, my close vision and the vision in my other eye are still bad, but I can't get reading glasses until the second eye is done and healed. So, this type of blogging may be difficult since I can't see what I'm doing very well. :)
Granny, you mentioned eye drops. I know of someone else who had to put in drops every 3 hours, but my doctor said there would be no eye drops. I'm not sure why doctors do things differently. She said I could use over the counter eye drops after a few more days of healing. She said they could contain bacteria, so she wanted me to be well on the way to healing before using those. She said to take Tylenol if I felt pain, but I haven't even had to do that. It just feels a little irritated, like with a dry contact lens.
Next surgery, August 27!
Anyway, doing well! Thanks for all your encouragement!
Shalom and love!

Just an update. My cataract surgery (left eye) is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 7:30. Micah and crew will deliver me to the hospital, go and get breakfast at a drive-through and then return to wait for me. (My COVID test came back negative, obviously. Yay!)
Prayers appreciated! :) The next four weeks (including the surgery on the other eye) will be interesting.
These three painted rocks were left along our walking trail the other day.
|This one wasn't one of them. I just can't figure out how to remove it!|
Sully invented a new game...
Most of my ATC/APC art lately has been for the Continuous Random Round Robin. I know I explained this earlier, but it basically means three people work on the cards. I've sent out "starters", then two more people will add something to them and send one completed one back to me. That's the short explanation, lol. Here are the starters I've sent out lately.
Apparently, I neglected to take photos of the Aces, twos and threes. I did make a note in my "records", describing them. I'm too obsessive about recordkeeping, ha ha.
Not much else to report. I've enjoyed visiting your blogs this morning! God bless everyone and peace on your households. Love y'all!

We had a storm last night. I hopped into my car and drove next door, since it was already raining and lightning when Micah warned me. I usually just ride it out at home, but decided to visit the neighbors this time! A couple of tornadoes had been spotted in the area. We lost somewhere around eight trees.
One landed on the barn. That will be a nasty one to remove. Pray for Adam's safety as he does it.
(Not liking this new Blogger editor page!!) Above is another tree down near the barn. And below is one blocking the drive back to the barn.
Several are down in the front pasture. They're in the distance behind these front trees.
Then a couple across our driveway right next to where I park my car. The next three photos are the same trees.
Anyway, that was exciting. I was praying for angels to surround and protect us! I've been reading some of Dutch Sheets' books on intercessory prayer. Time to put it into practice. I kind of naturally do that anyway, but I'm becoming a little more militant about it, lol.
Adam made short work of the trees blocking driveways. I'm always thankful for his skills and that the Bobcat was handy!
This next week (Thursday) I have my first cataract surgery. Monday I go for a Covid test. That will be interesting.
Today is a cloudy, foggy day. I think I'm going to need a nap after last night's excitement. One good result of the storm is that my windows look cleaner! Ha ha.
I think I'm going to close for now. Time for breakfast. I've been busy wandering around outside taking pictures and haven't gotten around to eating yet. That's important. :)
God bless all and shalom!
