04:28 pm: Spring!
Today I saw pansies and daffodils and the maples are budding. It must be Spring!

I took the newspaper recycling out, plus put a filter in the trash -- I usually swap furnace filters every other time Lucila comes and let her take it to the trash, but I forgot this week. Then I mailed a package to a bead friend and stopped by the Giant to get another cucumber and container of grape tomatoes. It turns out that you need two grape tomato containers to three cucumbers for the portions I like of the Greek salad.

I have the sliding glass doors open and a window in the kitchen and it's getting a bit cool (since it's only 57 outside, the sunshine is bringing a lot of the warmth) but Shiva is stil smelling the outdoors.

Shiva was on the cat part of the counter when I put their dish together, so I gave it to him on the counter first. Spirit whined. Then I put it down on the floor and Spirit had a go at it. I brought the paper in and gave them snackies which Spirit came to eat, and Shiva went to finish the plate. I think they got about equal amounts.

I hurt a lot today -- my wrist hurts again and my legs and back hurt. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, but not one that will help -- I see the opthalmologist about the cataracts.

Don't you like all those spring flowers? I planted pansies and primroses last week - so pretty.
I also bought more mint and parsley plants and had to stop little Jerry from tasting those.
I tried the haiku thingy and mine came back pretty weird - something about mild strokes.
I hope your wrist, legs and back will get better fast.

Yes, it's even warmer today -- 68F. When we visited my mother's parents, my grandmother would have us pick parsley and bring it in, wash it, and put it in the freezer. When we came back in hot, that was our treat -- and it worked really well! I think my haiku thing is from the review of The Uncommon Reader.

My legs and back are much better and my wrist is some better -- I wore the brace for De Quervain's Syndrome last night and that helped.

The opthalmologist said the cataracts don't need to come out yet, my eyes are too dry. Considering the drops I'm already using, I can try another OTC drop that's a little thicker but doesn't last as long, or he'll order Restasis, which is $100/month. I'd only pay $25/month until the total med amount dumped me into the Medicare Plan D donut hole and I'd have to pay total price on everything. There's a good chance this will get better as spring comes, too, so I'm hoping for that.

I'm just checking email -- my eyes are still dilated and I'd be forever if I tried to read now. I'm going to work on my BFAC project -- only two colors at the moment and I think I can handle that.
