I'm off to the eye doctor in less than an hour. I knew I was due for a checkup, but was putting it off until yesterday morning. I noticed a clear bubble of tissue on the white of my eye. It moves around a little, but is attached. It's a little irritating and concerned me, so I called for an appointment. She was going to schedule me for the 28th, but I said, "Well, what do I do about this bubble on my eye? Go to another eye doctor?" I wasn't going to put up with this for two weeks! She confabbed with someone in the background and they "remembered" they had a 9:30 appointment open this morning. Anyway, pray with me that it's not a big deal. Hopefully they can also make me a pair of glasses that I can actually see out of. I haven't had much luck with that lately. :) (Update: The bubble on my eye is a cyst or sort of a blister. Caused by dry, allergy eyes. She just recommended an allergy drop and an artificial tear drop to use and it should go away. If not, I'll go back. Sounds pretty routine.)
Here's my latest 5x7 canvas for the June swap. This gal had "chickens" listed as one of the themes she likes to receive, so chickens it is! :) I enjoyed painting these two girls.
When I was visiting Micah and the kids yesterday she said I HAD to see a book they got at the library. It's called North Woods Girl and it's about a grandma who lives in the woods. It's written from her granddaughter's viewpoint. She said they just laughed as they read it. The grandma in the story looks just like me! Micah said she reminded her so much of me that she's going to buy me a copy! I will love having it. There's one place where the grandma and granddaughter are sitting on a log by a little pond in the woods and the girl is talking about how her grandpa dragged that log out of the pond before he died, so they like to sit there. Micah said that sounded so much like something her dad would have done. Anyway, it's a delightful book and it struck a chord with us. Look it up sometime if you're at the library! :)
Thunder's rumbling so I'd better unplug my computer! Talk to you all later! :)
