Flowers And My Vision

Please click on pictures to enlarge

Joe has been  wanting to do this for a long time. The motor home is directly behind him.  He is going to plant arborvitaes right behind the flowers to form a hedge so we don't have to see our neighbor's back and side yard..... We can't do much about the grass beside Joe. That's another neighbor's grown over garden.  The flowers in front will eventually creep over the top and down the walls of the beds he built from the sculptured concrete bricks that lined the front flower beds. I'll show that project when he's finished with it.

I'm still walking and back up to my daily goal of 10,000 steps. That's 12 times around our mobile home park.  I try to break it up in to four times of 3 laps around.  7:00 and 10:00 in the morning and 1:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon. Today's total was 10,558 steps,  4 miles.

I like to look at what other residents in our park have in their gardens. Carol P. these first two pictures made me think of you today.

I listen to Southern Gospel Music on Pandora on my iPhone while I am walking. Some of my favorite artists are  Don Moen, Anthony Burger, Bill Gaither and Gaither Vocal Band, Guy Penrod and The Booth Brothers just to name a few.

Yes, I walk in the rain, just use my umbrella. If it is heavy rain and wind though, I wait it out and most of the time, there is enough breaks in the day that I can at least get a few minutes in at a time.

Oh, and here is my big news of the day. Today I met with my Opthamologist and I am scheduled to have cataract surgery on my left eye July 15th and on August 3rd  I will have the right eye done.  Thank you to all of my blogger friends and family who have had this done and blogged about it on here.  I wasn't looking forward to having it done, but your positive reports have given me a new outlook.
