Happy Friday, y'all

Let me start with a birthday shout-out to my favorite drummer, Daren Taylor. I love you, Angelfish. Keep doing what you love and loving what you do. [photo courtesy of Frankie Leal]

Yesterday, I got my eyes checked. The doctor told me my eyes were pretty. I resisted the urge to bat my lashes Bugs Bunny-style and asking him to "tell me more about my eyes." I'm getting "progressive" lenses, which is a nice way of saying tri-focals, I think. I can see far just fine, but the closer I get to something, the less clear my vision. I picked out some lovely new frames. He also told me my eyes have intermittent exotropia, which means that my eyes tend to drift outward when I'm tired. I apologize if I've given anyone the wandering eye. I have exercises to strengthen my eye muscles. Woo Hoo!

Today, I went to see my regular doctor. She made me promise to see her after I begged for an emergency inhaler for my trip back east. After 2 hours wait (seriously!) I finally got to see her. I now have prescriptions for a daily inhaler, a nasal inhaler for my allergies, and a big dog. Yep, my doctor told me to get a big dog and start walking. A little dog wouldn't make the walk strenuous enough. So, I can't wait to tell the Frau that I have to get a dog..."doctor's orders." (I wish I could)

My Etsy order arrived while I was watching the front desk. I ordered laundry soap from Shower Treat Soap. I love it. I ordered a bag a year ago and I just this week needed to get more. Mind you, I don't do laundry as often as some and when I do, I tend to combine loads to save money. But still, it lasts a good long time and is great for sensitive skin types. You can choose your scent (I get mine unscented) and five percent of sales benefit Women for Women International. Check it out! This time, I also ordered Tubby (tm) Lotion Bar Bath Melt. It's an essential oil bar that you smooth over your body when you're still warm and wet from the shower. OR, you can just smooth it on your dry skin and it works just as well. My ashy feet and legs are soft as a baby's butt.

And as special treat to myself (and because I almost passed out when my doctor took blood), I stopped at Trader Joe's on my way home to pick up my new favorite food--Sunny California Roll. I am not a sushi person; there's just something about it that I never enjoyed, and yes, I've tried enough to say that and be comfortable. Oddly, I do enjoy dried nori as a snack. But one day I was shopping at TJs and must have been hungry because this looked too delicious to say no.It's California Roll, but wrapped in carrot instead of nori. Yum!

Hope you all have a great weekend. It's going to be lovely.
