Tuesday’s coffee post …

Posted on

Woke at the crack of ten a.m. this morning.  That is not normal for me, but my body seems to really appreciate the break.  Bright day with bright blue skies with a low for us humidity of 47%. And it won’t go over 100° today.  It has been a very mild summer by Texas standards. 

Watching Annie, my black labrador-something-or-the-other and her battle with bone cancer in her front legs.  Today, she is really struggling to get around, and I am reminded that I will eventually have to make that hard decision.  But she still rests comfortably, and is still happy and alert, so as long as the overall quality of her life is good, I am spared that decision. Still, I must steel myself for the eventuality.

The eyes seem to be healing nicely after the cataract surgery, though it is maddening that one day I have very good vision, and blurry vision on other days.  I was told to expect that, but it would probably settle down. I hope it does, because in six days I get fitted for specs. This day I am far sighted and gaze around a neighborhood that I had not watched grow.  New outbuildings on some lots, tufts of weeds in lawns, all flood my eyes.  I have really missed seeing.  Now to get the hearing working again …

I shut my mouth on Afghanistan.  What more can be said that isn’t? The newsfeeds are ¾ Afghanistan, and ¼ a chronicle of a world gone mad.  So the days go by, marked by pots of Snookums perfect coffee.

Good morning

    As I recall, Central Texas didn’t have the humidity I grew up with on the East Coast. Houston/Galveston on the other hand…

    I’m so sorry for the baby doggy. How the hell does a dog get bone cancer.

    The world has gone completely mad. I’m sorry for those stranded who put their trust in an evil regime. I’m sorry for those that are being jailed in their own homes. I’m sorry for those being forced to choose between supporting a family or being poisoned. I am especially sorry for the children.

    We seem to be up to our eyeballs in tyrants.

    Hope your eyesight continues to improve.

    The powers that be always gives us something to ponder.

    First of all I am very happy your eyesight is better. I can’t imagine not being able to see well. Maybe instead of focusing on this world gone mad, focus on the beauty you can see around you with your new eyes! And yes, the world has gone mad, but we knew it would. It is written… so focus now on eternity, this world is temporary. ❤

      Indeed!
      Though the neglect of the shrubbery and yard has become paramount in my purview, some things we just have to leave for others. 🙂

        It has been too hot to do much yard work here. I can see just fine and I don’t like what I see !! I did get out and weed the flower bed a few days ago. I think there were more weeds than flowers 😂
