This is as close as I've gotten to my kitchen in the last eight days. Finally! A project that was supposed to take two or three days is done. We have new ceramic tile floors in the kitchen. I haven't actually gone in the kitchen yet because the sealer on the tile has to dry 24 hours. Our huge refrigerator is still in the dining room. The dining room is also my sewing room and I haven't been able to sew in days. While the tile guy was doing the floors, I spent time folding and organizing all of my fabric. I also cleaned the garage and my youngest son and I took a truck load of "stuff" to the Good Will. I'm so tried of eating out and it was only for a little over a week. Last night's dinner was actually cottage cheese and fresh tomatoes. That was yummy and much better than fast food.
Not cooking frees up a lot of time. There weren't dishes to do after dinner, so I've been getting a lot of reading done. My eyes have healed as much as they are going to at this point. I've felt an almost overwhelming urge to read and read. I've read Jeffery Deaver's The Sleeping Doll, another Jesse Kellerman book called Trouble, the latest paperback in a Nora Robert's trilogy - The Hollow and Sandra Brown's Play Dirty. Right now, I'm working on two books, Swine Not by Jimmy Buffett and a Faye Kellerman book called The Burnt House. My center vision is very good. My side vision is weird. If I look to the side without turning my head, everything is wavy. I've never been one to get car sick but now I have to focus straight ahead or my stomach starts turning. Don't even ask me to read something in the car! I'm just thankful that I can still read and thread a needle. Since my eye problems were caused by my diabetes, I've been diligent about taking care of my diabetes. I haven't cheated in so long that I forget what real sugar tastes like. I'll be the first to admit that this sometimes makes me a cranky witch. But, at least I'll be a cranky witch who won't fly her broom straight into a tree. Hmphh!
