Might Not Be On Here

Oh brother, tomorrow I have my first surgery for cataracts.  I'm excited but scared. But, it's all part of the adventure plan. Now I'll be able to see at night,or in dim light. Roger held up a coffee cup the other night and said, "oh look, it's caked inside". I couldn't see a thing. That's why when I thought I had washed it, it was clean.   Sad.

I remember going to my Mum's house when she was a lot older seeing glasses that were pretty dingy. My mother was always immaculate in house keeping so this made no sense. Now I know, she couldn't see it. 

Hopefully even with a patch on tomorrow night I'll be able to see out of the other eye. Years ago, my daughter when she was 2 , hit my left eye with a plastic card. They put a patch on but my other eye closed in sympathy. Egads. We're staying St our sticks and bricks house tip the weekend so I can do the the day after dr visit and ,oh, get my hair done. Priorities. :-)

So today I'm at the studio in my friend Lou's room. She's letting me share the space so I can get some work finished. We are both in a show at the 5th Avenue Gallery , the end of July, called Homes.  The challenge is to paint, make, construct what you would call home!

 
I glued together two 12" x 12" x 3" canvas and painting my RV. Working to make it somewhat realistic. I will also be adding wheels.

 
then to really add to the realism, I'm making Lola out of clay. We'll see how it turns out. I may end up just painting her in a window.  The show will benefit the South Brevard Sharing Center.
 
RV travel news.  Roger made a two week reservation at Big Hart Campground for September. We will be finally on the move. We need to find a place for two nights just before that as we don't want to drive for long periods during the day. We are heading to Myrtle Beach for Roger's submarine reunion.  It will be different having the kids with us this time. We can take them for long walks on the beach, yeah..dog friendly, then at night they can hang with me if Roger wants to go and tell the same stories yet one more time. Oh..did I just say that out loud????
 
Anyway, wish me we'll and if I. can see I'll pop in tomorrow night. If not, see you Thursday.
 
Warmly,
Sheila
