I'd heard the colors would be brighter, which they are. But I hadn't realized the surgery would go a long way toward correcting the nearsightedness in my right eye. I'm looking out the window a lot these days. And when I walk in my neighborhood, I'm surprised by how much more light there is. I had no idea. I really thought that was just how it is in the Pacific Northwest!
I go for my one-week checkup in a couple of days. Then I'll be able to sleep without my patch on. And go from three kinds of eyedrops four times a day, to two kinds of eyedrops three times a day. A little less remembering.
Today we plant the peas. We have four raised beds in our garden, and this year one of them is just mine. I told my husband Art I'll plant what I want, and how I want, and if I stop paying attention to the garden and stuff doesn't do well, he can take over and do what he wants. Yesterday he planted peas harvested last year in his raised bed. I think they're GMO seeds, and if that's the case the pea plants will do fine but won't produce any pods or peas. Yesterday I went to the local nursery and bought a packet of heirloom peas for my bed. I'm thinking we'll be eating peas from my plants this year. I'm generous, though, so I'll share.
