An Eye Opening Experience

I actually thought this was just going to be a normal Thursday morning.  The dogs needed to go out before the alarm went off.  The alarm went off before I wanted to get up.  Some people say the mornings are much brighter due to the time change.  I don’t see it. I see dark.

Anyway after the shower, I open up my contact case.  I can’t find the contact.  So I continue to swish my finger around and around – nothing.  Maybe it fell on the counter.  I lean over and look along the counter.  Oh and remember I am contact-less (aka blind).  Nothing.  So I put in the other contact, certainly that will help.  I start to put the case away when I spot it – hanging off the side of the case.  Thank goodness.   I pop it in.


If any of you have ever worn contacts you will understand the next few hours   seconds.  Tears are pouring out of my eyes as I try to pry my eyelids apart.  I can’t do it, let alone grab that contact.  Finally, I got that little sucker out.     Glasses were the look of the day.


This is the look I was going for:


This is the look I got:


So let’s talk Turkey Day.   No, not Thanksgiving, silly.  Turkey days.  Just passin’ through guys, just passin’ through.

The dogs were quietly whining, the cats were outside – but laying low, the horses, on the other hand were quite interested.  When the turkeys got into their pasture, they actually trotted out to see them.

I left for work and saw this:

Come on….  Don’t they have any idea that Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away?  This is no time to be taking a vacation.


You know how you hear of people cutting themselves with a kitchen knife – usually while rapidly chopping stuff, right?   So picture this:   While holding a plastic bag of vegetables upright with one hand, grab the sharpest knife you own and with great vigor slice across the top of the bag – straight through to the other side where your fingers are!


Completed cooking like this:
because it’s much more dramatic than a band-aid.


I watched a great movie/documentary on Netflix called “A Ballerina’s Tale”.  It’s about the life of Misty Copeland and the world of ballerinas. 

Now go out and have a great Friday!

One step at a time,

    So dumb!! Thank goodness it didn’t need stitches……..


    Life is precious, life is fragile and life is short. Live each day with kindness & mindfulness.
