A breath of fresh air

It's wonderful what a temperate day can do to your spirits. Windows in the house are open and I am breathing fresh air flow into a house shut too long against the elements.


Lynda's parents arrive by plane later today. We are busy cleaning, straightening, shoving stuff out of sight . . . you know how it goes. "Sure, we live neat as a pin all the time . . . don't you?" But besides providing welcome company, it always gives us reason to clean more than usual--which is not much.

I'm glad they are coming when the weather is nice. It might rain, but as least the temperature is pleasing and the chance for sunlight is worth talking about. Heck, the whole family got out and walked for about an hour this morning before lunch. It was nice to feel a bit of sweat on my back and the work the legs more. Come on nice weather!


I also went to my regular eye doctor this morning. It is clear that my prescription has improved greatly since the cataract surgery, so I am needing new glasses. Additionally, the artificial lens near-focus limitations means that I will be featuring a "progressive" lens (what your parents called bi-focals) on the left side. It should take a few days to get used to it, so expect to see me holding papers out at arms length, tilting my head this way and that like a senior citizen trying to decide what soup to order off the menu.

Well, that's it for now. I had some other blogging plans for today, but household chores and familial welcoming--not to mention LOTS of grocery shopping demand that I leave it there.

"Talk" to you again tomorrow. (And sorry for the late post today.)
