Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Glad to hear all the good things that happened yesterday. We just went through cataract surgery (at that very same hospital) with my dad, both eyes, two different surgeries, four visits, etc., etc., so I can relate, (except for the long drives you've had to endure).

Have fun with your sock knitting and your Harry Potter reading. Maybe now that Book 7 is out I'll read the first one....

Yippee! Sock #2 of Christmas pair #1 is as good as done. Surgery was loooooooong yesterday, or rather, waiting around was long, for the doctor told me it took much less time than he’d allowed for. Evidently other patients took longer than planned, and we had arrived earlier than we needed to. Even with a foray into the cutest dress shop and a stop at the Starbucks - both of which were just across the hospital parking lot, I had time to turn the heel, finish the gusset and knit the foot before BD was released. Nothing but the toe to finish up tonight.

But how I wish we had rented a hotel room in Richmond. This repair requires him to keep his nose pointed to the ground or else lie on his right side (6 foot man in Nissan Sentra - no way). We could have stayed somewhere with a/c and a big TV and whiled away the time being indolent. Instead, poor BD had to keep his head down the whole drive home - 2 hours - and will have to go back tomorrow and then come home again - 4 more hours. Poor baby. So. Fingers crossed, this will be our last trip to the retina man. Cataract man is next, but we’ll say eyeball chants so that will be a few more years down the road.

And now? This glorious weekend? Well. Now we have only a house to clean, laundry to do and a Harry Potter novel to read. And if we can’t get any rain, at least we have dry cooler weather for patients to stay in bed and care givers to sink into books.
