MACRO MONDAY - WEEKEND OCTOBER 15

This week we had a Friday 13. Nothing special happened, I didn't hurt myself and the house in the evening was still standing. But the next day we caught up.

The morning was pleasant, we went to the eye doctor, I for a check up of my surgery and also to know if I need new glasses, and Mr. G to know if he should also get his cataracte removed, but he had not enough so he didn't need any surgery. And I apparently am a miracle, because I don't need any glasses, not for seeing far, not for seeing near, for the first time in 30 years I am without glasses and feel "naked". I have to get used to it. Now in my old age I don't need glasses I would have preferred when I was a young woman.



The new couple !

In the afternoon JC our friend who should cut the hedge, put his car just in front of my garage door. I had to go to Bunny to explain her Facebook, opened the garage door with the remote control sitting in the car while looking for her address in the GPS. Although I had been there already 4 times I still didn't find the way. I heard a big booom, I hadn't seen the car and promptly had bumped in. The men came running fearing the worst, but fortunately only the glass of my rear light was broken and JC had nothing.

While we were discussing and inspecting the nurse came for Mr. G. and really dropped into an Italian household, (JC is Italian too) where everybody shouted and gesticulated to just say nothing. Her arrival was a good occasion for me to escape the Italian comedy. Mr. G. amongst other strange things this time has caught an infection at his elbow with a very elegant name, it suppurates like a river and the nurse has to disinfect it everyday and put a new bandage around. I am not allowed to do that, it needs a professional ! Of course. Business is business.

Arriving at my friend at least I managed to do a Facebook page for her and she was happy. We chatted a bit about the past when we were young girls and went out each weekend and quickly it was time to go home.

I liked that in the Italian household that there was lots of shouting and gesticulating to say nothing.

It is amazing that you now don't need glasses, it must feel very strange.

The nurse has to infect it each day? Wouldn't it make more sense not to infect something or is that just me?

It's nice not to need glasses. I wish I could get rid of mine. I'm thinking of laser surgery but then I get scared. Hope Mr G will be better soon.

How nice you don’t need glasses. I can’t go anywhere without glasses or contact lenses! I’m sorry to hear about infection Mr. G got. I hope it clears up soon. xo

You look great without the specs. Since my surgeries, I only wear them when on the computer because my eyes get tired and I keep a cheap drugstore pair in my purse for things like small print menus in darkish restaurants ... did I tell you about my friend who (after her cataract surgery) wears glasses with no correction at all -- because her grown daughters told her she didn't look like herself without glasses. So silly.

It must feel strange without your glasses but I'm glad the surgery was so successful. I hope Mr's G's arm improves quickly though I suspect the nurse is injecting it daily rather than infecting it lol. Lovely photo collage on your page header.
