It’s Too Hot

August 21, 2009

I’ve been trying to catch up with things that I’ve been putting off for months now that’s it’s gotten too hot to be outside. 

Wednesday, I made myself get down to Salisbury by 9AM to get my permanent teeth.  After a short(YEAH!) wait, I got to sit back for a while with sticky gunk in my mouth.  After a longer wait, I got to try on a wax impression with teeth.  Then, I was told to go away and come back at 2PM.  Well.  I was hungry.  All I had had was warmed up coffee.  I decided a nice breakfast was in order.  Doug was interested, so I went out by myself.  It was actually nice not having to make small talk.  I took a book with me and finished it.  I also stopped at Mernie’s and bought corn and peaches.  Corn on the cob is a great way to test new teeth.  Also, the peaches have been exceptionalthis year.  I wandered back to the dentist office.  I was number 11 on the list, but I was the fifth one called.  My new teeth feel different, but they don’t hurt.  They look better.  They look natural and they don’t push my mouth out like the old ones.  What more can I ask?  And, yes, I ate corn on the cob for supper that same day.

For my knitting friends, I will be adding two new pages soon.  I writing basic glove patterns using worsted and sport weight yarn. 

Dog Bed

Dog Bed

Gus is so kitten-pecked!  Sometimes I think that I would like to have a little dog, but Gus can’t stand them.  He has a fit whenever he sees one.  Maybe he’s afraid they will cut into his kitty time.  There was an adorable little dog with the cats at one of the shelters.  The woman said she loves the cats.  He would have been perfect.  Do you think Gus can read my mind?

Foggy Morning

072209 001You don’t see this much in the summer.

I had my annual visit to the ophthalmologist this morning.  My doctor retired recently so I tried the new guy.  He seems a decent sort.  He was efficient. 

 When I was four, my brother hit me in the eye with a slingshot.  We wound up at Hopkins very late at night.  I remember having a drop of blood rolling around my eye.  It was making my mother sick  so I tilted my head whenever she was looking at me.  I developed a cataract from it.  I’ll have to get it removed eventually.  Barf.

I was thinking about getting red frames, but I got violet instead.  My insurance allows me to get a free pair every year which is good because my prescription is always changing.  And I like variety.

I stopped at Mernie’s on the way home and bought fresh corn and peaches.  The corn was delicious.  Doug ate four ears and I had two.  It is so nice to be able to eat corn on the cob again.  Which reminds me.  I need to see the dentist soon.  Cora tried to peel a peach, but she didn’t do a very good job.  I told her to stick to purring.

When I got home, I couldn’t go out because my pupils were still dilated.  So I sat down and FINALLY finished writing my hat pattern.  I have been so lazy this summer, it is down right embarrassing.
