Christmas Decorations

I'm usually enthusiastic about Christmas decorations. I was going to print out a discount coupon and go to Hobby Lobby to get a pre-lit pencil tree. But I was looking at St. Nicklaus with a skull beside him and my nativity set with a rifle in front of it and decided why bother.

Hearing Aid

Larry was watching Larry's Country Diner. He likes it and keeps taking it off of mute so I can hear something. Mostly I just remember all the times I wanted to read him something and he was rude to me. But tonight an old entertainer said he and his wife have been married for 52 years and she insisted he get a hearing aid. She had told him she was proud of him and he replied he was tired of her, too. That was funny to me because I've had some of those conversations with Larry before he got his hearing aid. We still have problems communicating because if he doesn't have them in, I have to yell. If I've made a mistake and they're in, he yells back at me. I wonder if he knows how difficult it is to decide if talking to him is worth while.


I have been rearranging my greenhouse so a few pieces of fitness stuff would fit in there. So I got the things arranged and noticed that the floor looked awful, so I mopped it. The guy came to plant the pollinator seeds. I don't think he's finished, but he got a good start. To get to one of the fields, he has to go through a neighbor's field. It's planted with soybeans. They didn't want him to go through the field, but we eventually settled on driving through the sparse edge. I was glad the conversation was on the phone because it didn't sound friendly towards the end. But it was ok, I guess. I'm glad that part is finished.

I had two tests scheduled this morning at an imaging center. I got there early and they took me immediately. The tests were done and I was back in time to eat on Friday:) The tests they do every few years don't upset me. I tried to tell them I didn't need a bone scan since I don't break anything when I fall. They weren't impressed. Anyway, tests when something is wrong have a whole different impact.

Exercise Peddler

This is for using while seated. It can also sit on a table for arms to use. There is a knob to adjust the tension.

Today's List

My Christmas cards are finished. I ate my oily fish and three pieces of fruit today. I ate more than just those things, but those were the things I put on my list to make sure I ate them. I bleached a load of whites (that's a once a month chore) and went to the bank. It wasn't a bad day.

Dry Eyes Diet

Today I ate a can of sardines. It's a fatty fish and is supposed to be good for people with dry eyes. I bought several cans of sardines, and I have tuna and salmon (canned...I hope it isn't necessary that the fish is fresh). I need to try to eat stuff on that diet six times a week. I don't know if I can actually do it, but I don't want to use drops longer than I have to.
