I went into work on Tuesday. It was considerably colder, with a wind! I found that out when I took the trashcan out to the road.

My eye had turned a lovely, deep purple (my Mother would have loved it – she was fond of purple) and invited a lot of comments.

I went to the eye doctor (ironic) in Farmington and got my old lenses installed in my new frames. On the way back, my low gas light came on. Dammit! So, I pulled into a gas station, bundled up and filled up the tank.

I didn’t have time to eat out, so I stopped in Wendy’s to grab another one of those bacon and blue cheese burgers. But, the promotion was over!!!

So, I got one of their “Pacific cod” sandwiches. I ate it at work and was under-impressed.

I thought I was doing okay, but my Boss sent me home at 3:00 p.m., telling me to put some ice on my eye. She didn’t have to tell me twice.

Sidebar: Did I ever mention I have a good boss?

Since it was early, I stopped on the way home at Costco and grabbed some peanuts for the squirrels and coffee for me. It only took about 10 minutes and I had another missed weekend errand checked off.

I came in after bringing in the trashcan. I treated the cat and then walked out back, filling up the feeders.

I did wet a washcloth, added some ice cubes and held it to my eye. It didn’t help with the color, but the swelling did noticeably go down.

I took out a pound of ground chuck to thaw (I really need to go to the grocery store!), but it was too late for today. So, I heated up a can of Campbell’s Bean with Bacon soup. I got out some saltine crackers and ate that for my dinner.

Both my Tuesday night NCIS shows were reruns, but I watched them anyway. Then I went to bed at 10:00 p.m.


  1. "invited a lot of comments."

    Hopefully you responded with a lot of, "you should see the other guy."

  2. "Boss sent me home at 3:00 p.m." Did she say to go shopping too? NO...Ice the eye

  3. @ Jake: No, I went with the more modern, "I guess no, means no!"

    @ GPF: But, the squirrels were hungry!!! I am the steward of this world of mine...
