Today was a miracle....

I wore a beautiful bright tangerine linen shirt and a bright blue pair of Capri's.  I was going to see in style...It was very hot and humid in the high 90's so being outside was not high on my list.  The staff at the eye center.... was compassionate and the very first business ....was getting their payment for my first new lens...$1,395 for each eye and I quickly placed it on my credit card.  Next Monday I will place the second lens on the next payment schedule.  I went through the procedure well and went home and quickly fell asleep  I did have a throbbing headache but mostly I think it was nerves and the brightness of the overhead sun. 

Yesterday we went to look at a few options and watched the grand children while Erin and Chance moved more materials and shelves into their caramel candy studio.  We watched Despicable Me 1 with the grands and we are looking forward to seeing the newest movie in the next couple of weeks.  Ken made a three berry pie and with whipped cream life does not get better!



Is this costume dress up day????
 Grandpa and Lyndon are all comfy now...bring on the movie!!!  Minions for everyone!!
 Yes hanging out with the minions has me wearing Lyndon's new Cars underwear....that he has no interest in wearing....... poor Morgan was running in her flip flops... and she fell....I know this hurts!!!
 and now the Minions are..................
Lyndon was sooooooooooo hungry........and quietly found that Dad was cutting up our fresh fruits................sweet watermelon......................delicious........


Waiting for dinner ..takes some patience.............patience is one of Cole's new spelling words............
 and now for a game on the back deck..."Sink or Float"...perfect for a hot end of the summer day........observe...compare ...contrast...count and then just SPLASH in the cool bucket water......
I am so grateful for my sweet family ....the secret of life is enjoying the passing of time...........


Tomorrow Ken has his marker surgery...we are on a roll also........... wish us luck.  Imagine and Live in Peace,  Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  4. I was thinking about you all day on Monday. I'm so glad everything went well. Expensive eye surgery but being able to see clearly all those beautiful things you create is a must. Take your time getting back into things. :)Bea
