We have had a terrific week of wintery weather. Yay! A little rain. A little snow. Wind. Mini hail pellets. The snow has been fast, and at times, furious. We had a squall that lasted all of 15 minutes. Then it was dry and calm, and only Mingus had visible snow. Hope you enjoy the views!

The first eye has healed, and all is well. Amen!

The next, it is something entirely different.
Something it has never been before.

Just a few more days now. Time passes so quickly, but the challenge month seems like a blink of the eye. Speaking of eyes, next month I am having cataract surgeries. “Yay”, she says, with an OMG look on her face.

I knew I have floaters. Annoying. The doctor is not worried about those though. He did not see cataracts in my first visit. Six weeks later they were there. He was astounded. He could not believe his notes had no mention. And I told him that he did not say anything about them. He said it rarely happens, that they develop so quickly. I reminded him I have Lupus, and he did say that could be a factor.

I have pre-op on the 3rd and surgery on the 8th and 15th. I will likely be digitally silent for most of the month. Bright light and all. Their website mentions that color vision may be improved. Hmm. “Interesting”, she says, eyebrow raised.

I have to be honest and say, I am mildly freaking out at the thought of someone slicing my eye open. While I am awake. Everyone I have talked to says it is a breeze. I will be thrilled to have them both behind me.

I used a digital repeat pattern on the vase. For Nelvia: The lines were black but I removed most of that color and altered it with selective color. Just as printers do, you can get thousands of variations by adding more or less cyan, magenta, and yellow.

Which vase do you like best?
