June 9--More of the same

We went out early again and had our eye appointments for the year. I've been going to the same eye doctor since I turned 40 and my 20/20 vision abandoned me. He is a good doctor who takes his time. While he looked at my eyes we talked about diabetes. You can see diabetic changes in the arteries that feed the retina fairly early on, so he knows when someone is at risk.

Malida goes to him too, so we both had our appointments and picked out our new glasses for the year. I am using six-year-old glasses, because I lost the most recent pair. I'm not good at keeping track of my glasses, and no, I don't want to wear them around my neck.

We went to the asian market to get some food for Malida. She has to work two days in a row this week. The second day is at a different clinic. She has to be there at 5 am on Saturday. I will wake up and make her coffee, then fall back to sleep as if I had never gotten up.

In the afternoon a guy came by to give me an estimate on some solar shades for a few of our windows. My office window gets a lot of sunlight, and it is the hottest room in the house. The guy gets great reviews in the community, and I liked talking to him. As he talked, I recognized that he was from Canada by his accent, even though he has been here since 1974. "Aboot" gave it away. We talked for a bit about my trip across Canada, then we agreed that he would put up our sun shades.
