Eyes improved, and computer

[This view of my eyes is caused by my untrained use of the "red-eye" elimination button on my new computer. Now I can't reverse those raccoon eyes!]

My every-four-week-checkup with the eye specialist was this afternoon. Good news! My sight stayed improved and so I had NO injection for this appointment. Now I am to be "hyper-vigilant" about any changes to my vision for the next four weeks. Meanwhile...couldn't focus my eyes for six hours because of the dilation drops.

Also I have not been doing any quilting because of the arrival of said new computer.
I am "transitioning" to an iMac, desktop from a regular PC, so I'm finding that I don't know how to do some of the things I used to know how to do. For instance, at this moment the printer won't print because it is "offline". I don't know how to make it be "online".

Otherwise I am trying to memorize the Macedonian words to one of the songs our Grand Rapids Women's Chorus has scheduled for our Winter concert next month. Hmm...some things do NOT get easier with age.

AND....This is my 300th blog post. So I am drawing a name from my "Followers" to received the little quilt pictured in the last post. The winner is "gayleb". Please send me your snail mail address so I can get it out to you!

Wow, you scared me! I thought you had two huge black eyes. So glad your eyes are doing well.
I work on a Mac and love it. Let us know after you get used to using it how well you like it.
Macedonian, is that like Greek? Just think how good this is for your brain, Forging new neural connections.
