Yesterday afternoon I lost my reading glasses. We figure it was the usual that I put my glasses down and a cat knocked them off the table and they went into the warp hole of temporal displacement. We went through the living room, the last place I remember seeing them, and came up a blank. Today I poked around a bit and the glasses reappeared. I discovered last night how much I need them now. It use to be close work like threading a needle. Now words are blurred unless I have them on and tiny print is impossible for me to read. Ah the problems of getting old but it sure as heck beats the alternative.
I cleared off the couch and am in the middle of washing the throws that we use in the winter to keep our feet and legs warm along with the cats. If it doesn’t rain, I can dry everything outside I think.
I now need to discover where the gremlins put my good sunglasses. I know they are in the house but not much more than that. I have a vague recollection of seeing them and saying that’s not a good place for them to be but I can’t reconstruct where that was in my head. So I continue to search for them.
Tomorrow we head for Connecticut for Ariel’s undergraduate graduation. There are a couple of things we are going to attend before the actual graduation. I honestly don’t remember so many things attached to my undergraduate graduation but that was a long time ago. I have clearer memories of my MFA graduation.
Next week we are Phoenix Comic Con. Peter’s table is 2416. Caroline and I will be there with him. Also we will be participating in the Puppet Slam on Friday Night. Yes, we will be doing Lord of Time probably for the last time. Now I have to figure out how to top that at the next Dragon*Con.
Elementary took a page from “The Adventure of the Dying Detective” and did a good job of it. I didn’t see it coming until the end. Overall not too many quibbles with the season. But more on that in my end of the season wrap up. I will say I am looking forward to next season.
I am grateful for anything I get done today.
