My eyesight still hasn’t improved. Sigh. It would be nice to get to the other side of one of my challenges. My tumors in the leg where I had surgery grew back. And there has been a general increase in their numbers. See, this is why I get so frustrated and freak out from time to time. Everyone has challenges. I don’t think I’m alone in mine for one second. It’s not being able to get past mine that frustrated me. Sometimes I can accept it, sometimes I can’t. And when I can’t, when I start thinking about people who have, and get past their challenges, that’s when things start to de-escalate for me. Staying in the now becomes a major challenge. But I work on it. Every second of every day. Sometimes I can (do it) and sometimes I can’t. That’s life.
Good news! (for me). The eagles are back! After all the setbacks this year (the nest fell in a storm, the director of Raptor Resources Project passed away), the good folks of Decorah, IA made a starter nest and Mom and Dad took to it! Cameras are back up and I just checked in on them. So good to see them working on making the new nest home. If all goes well, in six to eight weeks we should see (three, hopefully ) eggs! Three is high for eagles, but that’s when these two have been producing and there have been 23 so far (two the first year).
So between the eagles on the webcam and the hummingbirds, squirrels, Stellar Jays and some tiny birds I can’t identify all on my deck, I’m entertained. Now I just need my eyes to come back so I can return to reading. I started listening to digital books but it’s not the same (for me). I love to read.
