Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Hello World!!


Yes, I'm alive! No I'm not sick. Thanks for asking.  

The things I love to do all day now take all day to do because my energy level is still low. We are finally declairing "Snow Out" as the last of it has melted!! Now the clean up begins.
The backyard wasn't too bad but, oh my, the front yard was a mess.  I got August' agility equipment up and he is running and jumping like mad.  

Both dogs hang out with me while I clean up the front yard. One watches me and one watches the road.  Can you guess who is doing which? 

Yup, August watches the road.

Becke watches me.

So once I get home, it's feed the dogs, putter around the house for a bit because if I sit down at all, I fall asleep on the couch.  On the weekends, I work on the yard and then stop once I am tired. I curl up on the couch to watch a movie and wake up 3 hours later. There are just not enough hours in the day.  I remember working in the yard all day and getting it all done in one day. Now I work till I'm tired and have to go back the next day (and the day after that) to get it all done.  I think the yard got bigger!

I love being outside in the warmth and feel the grass, dirt, and mulch under my feet.  I love the heat bearing down on my fuzzy head.  I look like a Chia Pet in the first few days of watering it.  I wish my hair grew as fast as a Chia Pet but it's not. OH WELL!  I still love feeling the heat on my head.

There was a nasty bug going around the office and church and just about everywhere and I didn't get it!! My new immune system seems to be working really good!  I sleep really well and I wake up feeling strong but oh how I wish I could move faster and get more done in one day.  I know Baby steps.

Monday night we got to play with our granddaughters while their parents were working. They work split shifts so that someone is home with them but every so often one is starting at 3pm and other doesn't get out until 5:30pm so we get to have the girls for that "between time".  It's been way too long since that has happened.  What fun to play outside with them!  I'm going to teach them to garden, then they can teach their parents!  What fun it is to dig in the dirt with kids.

So thank you for checking, and even for worrying but I'm good. Back to the dirt.....


  1. Glad it is finally getting nice enough to be outside! I think you do pretty good getting things done with everything you have endured! Playing with the grandkids is the best!

  2. I am happy to hear you are feeling better. I have been soaking up all the sunshine and warmth I can. Something about it just soothes the soul. Enjoy those grandbabies!

  3. So glad to hear you are feeling well. Have fun in the sunshine and dirt!

  4. So very happy to hear that you're doing well! Enjoy that sunshine!

  5. I'm thanking God that you are able to work in the yard even though the time spent is shorter than before. Also thankful that you didn't get that bug that was going around.

  6. So great to read that you are able to focus on all the things you love doing again. Enjoy the sunshine!


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
