It’s been almost a month and while it has zoomed by, it’s been full.
A week ago, I had the cataract removed from my left eye.  I get to tape the lovely plastic device to my face at night so I don’t inadvertently rub my eye as it continues to heal.  I have 20/20 vision in that eye now!  As a person who has worn glasses since I was 7, it’s remarkable.   I have a small cataract in my right eye but that one will wait.  The vision in that eye is 20/50 and is correctable to 20/20. In about 2 weeks, after my eye has had more time to heal, I will get new glasses and be able to see clearly for the first time in months.

Look at that grey hair!  It was sorely in need of a good cutting so the day after the surgery, I got it done.  It felt so much better.  And there’s almost no color left in it.
This is right after we left the hairdressers.  She always dries it with bangs but I mostly push them back.  I love my hair color.  I like it short.  It makes me feel a bit more modern and less old-lady-like.  If my mother were alive, she would be scolding me right now.  She colored her hair until the day she died.  She thought women should never let people know how old they are.  Well, I am 60 and this is what 60 looks like on me.  

We’re going to a “sprinkle” for Kate this weekend.  It’s a small baby shower.  She is nearing the end of her pregnancy and will be very glad when it’s over.  This baby is very active and has managed to kick Kate hard enough to send her to the ER with pains.  Could be a good soccer player coming into the world!

Peter Kevin is still looking for a job but El had an interview today at a local store.  Fingers are crossed for her to be successful.  

I’m home today because it’s parade day in Philadelphia after the Eagles won the Super Bowl last Sunday.  They expect 3 million people to crowd into the city today.  Since I normally travel into the city for work each day, all of these people would make that commute difficult to say the least.  I opted to use a vacation day.  There were lines out of the  train stations and around the buildings today.  And they stopped selling tickets last night so some of those people may be disappointed.
That’s City Hall in the background.  (Full disclosure, I did not take the photo.  I found it online and borrowed it). Look at all those people! My brother and his wife are huge fans.  He’s been waiting for this his entire life.  They are the people who paint their faces and go to games.  We are not football fans in our house.  We watched the game on Sunday and it was exciting enough to keep our interest. The only game we watch regularly is the Army/Navy game.  So going to the parade was not something we even considered.  I’m content to look at the crowd from the comfort of my living room.

Today, I am going to do some knitting and smell the stew I’ve got going in the crockpot.  It’s a beautiful day.  Sunny and cold.  Not a bad day for a parade, or for sitting with some hot coffee and watching the world go by.

Glad to hear that the surgery went well. It must be exciting to see again! I've never colored my hair so am just watching the red continue to fade to grey and blonde. Maybe I need to add some purple to keep things interesting :)

Weight loss pill must not have side effects. Usually manufacturers will tell you that their weight loss pill has side effects, Premium Pure Keto but investigate a little deeper. Ask online forums, do a search on search engines, ask people in the offline world, access to independent review websites etc. There should be a guarantee of reasonable refund. For example, a guaranteed return six months of money seems very nice.
