This and That

Two Houses By The Shore - in Musquodoboit Harbour home
I received a photo of one of my windows from its new owner...Jason. He wrote: "I'm situated on a little peninsula on Musq. Hrb. so it was hard to find a spot that wasn't blocking a view of the harbour. I chose my office for now although I might move it around a bit. Just wanted to say thanks! It's a great piece as are all of your others. I fell in love with this one when I saw it. It's such a great composition and I like the way that mosaic tree looks with the houses." It's so nice to hear from the people who purchase my windows. It's always hard to part with them, so I love to see them hanging in their new homes. Thanks Jason!

This past week has been a struggle, because I have lost most of the sight in my left eye, which has been rather scary. I spent 3 days in various doctor's offices last week, and have been diagnosed with "Posterior Vitreous Detachment". I'm finding it quite difficult to deal with, and am guessing that I only have about 25% of my normal vision out of my left eye. Reading, computer work, driving, photography....just about everything takes quite an effort. Feeling sorry for myself doesn't help! I am waiting to see a specialist in "the big city", but the good news is that they don't think I have a retinal tear....that requires emergency surgery. final update for the day. If you live around here, you already know that John did not win the election for District 9. I'm very proud of him for his 2nd place finish...quite an accomplishment for a "Come From Away" who was up against an established provincial politician! It's a "win" in my book anyway. I have been fired as official agent and manager for John's campaign, but he tells me that I will continue in my role as life partner and soul mate. Phew. That's a relief!

I'm so sorry to hear about your eye! that's scary! And I don't think that you've been fired as campaign manager... Just layed off until next time! I'm proud of John too! As someone from away, he has made terrific inroads.

Sara, I'm sorry to hear about your eye. I had this happen, too - about 8 years ago for me. I went through the specialist appointments and tests for retinal detachment and so on, but in the end they all decided it wasn't serious and I'd just have to cope. I'm pleased to say that over the years it has gotten much better, and I rarely even notice it now. For me, it was like a really thick fog forming over one eye; the whole thing only took about 10 minutes, but it's very scary, isn't it! Hope yours doesn't cause you any more serious problems.

Congrats to John for coming in 2nd! I love to hear a CFA-Does-Good story!
