Post Surgery Update
I was hoping to write regular blog posts this weekend but I still need to be careful about screen times and writing with sunglasses on as I typed left much to be desired. I tried. ;)
So far I have regained about 75% of my vision in my right eye and I continue to be hopeful (and prayerful) that even more vision will come back in the next few days. It is already a remarkable difference from before the surgery when I couldn't read the top line of the eye chart with my right eye.
I have been able to get out some this week, always with the sunglasses on that the doctor gave me and following all the surgeon's rules. If you follow me on Instagram (@coffeeteabooksandme), you saw that I bought a copy of the now annual The Cozy Issue of Bella Grace magazine. I loved their first edition last year and this one looks even better. I need to let my eye heal to do more than peruse the beautiful photos.
I don't buy many magazines and I admit that my two favorites, Bella Grace and Where Women Cook, are pricey because they have no advertisements. Each new issue only comes out quarterly in addition to their special issues like The Cozy Issue.
I don't buy them often and when I know in advance there is a special issue coming soon, I set aside spending money for it. Beautiful magazines are like a vacation where you don't have to travel. Some friends love Where Women Create and its' sister magazines, too.
We decided to host Thanksgiving again this year before handing it over to our son and daughter-in-law for good next year. I wanted one more Thanksgiving to use my brown transferware dishes. It does wear me out but in a good way and I get a lot of help. I love Thanksgiving because it is about food, faith, family, and friends.
I plan to be back on Wednesday talking about Christmas books and movies. By then, the computer screen shouldn't bother me as much. Thank you for your continued prayers, my friends!
Note: I buy these magazines at Barnes & Noble but my local grocery store carries some of them. Special editions such as The Cozy Issue are normally available only at stores like Barnes and Noble and on the publisher's website.
