There’s No “I” in Team . . .

But there are two in eye infection.

Over the past couple months, I’ve been attacked by:  poison ivy, a mango allergy, a cold, and some sort of vicious infection in my left eye. The eye infection was by far the wost of these.

I’m going to look on the bright side and focus on all the FABULOUS things that must be just around the corner! The bad karma is gone! Let the good karma roll!

Here’s the tale of my injured left eye. I woke up on Tuesday and realized my vision was blurry in my left eye. That’s never good. By the time I made it to the ophthalmologist’s office at 9:15, my eye was incredibly painful — I was crying and snotting all over the place. Not pretty. Not that I cared at the time — I’m pretty sure I would have had my left eye amputated had someone given me the option.

I made it home and huddled on my couch with my eyes closed. I also realized I could go to the bathroom AND get food from the kitchen without opening my eyes! Quite the accomplishment!

The good news is my eye is SO MUCH BETTER today. My vision is only a teeny bit blurry, and my eye doesn’t hurt at all.

I celebrated my newly regained sight by yarding. And I took pictures.

Zinnia! Isn’t she pretty?!

Veggie garden #1. There will be tomatoes soon!

Pretty red flowers! (I have no idea what they are.)


Stump from the giant tree that WAS in my back yard.

And the official guardian of the stump. This toy was hiding under the tree. I didn’t have the heart to move him. He can be the stump mascot — the stumpcot, if you will.

And, finally, my new Martha Stewart patio furniture! (It hasn’t exploded yet!)

    I like to think that there are 3 “i”s in eye infection—-i,i, and eye. 🙂

    Hey Laura,
    You don’t know me. But Steven does. 🙂
    Your flowers are beautiful! And your blog is hilarious!!! Anyhow, i was wondering if you had any advice on victorian roses. I appear to be killing mine, as they are shriveled like a prune. 😦 HELP!!!

      Amber! You are my FIRST “anonymous” fan! And, that makes you my favorite anonymous person EVER!
      Hmmm….I’m definitely not the best source of advice on garden matters. I just kind of wing it. My advice is have a positive attitude. Read to your roses. Better yet, sing to them. And…the magical thing about plants is that they can appear to be dying at one moment and then start to thrive the next day:) I LOVE that! (Of course, it can also work the other way…and that’s kind of depressing.)

        Awesome! I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now, and decided to show my face, instead of just lurking on your webpage like a creepy stalker person. Which, I totally am.:) I’m totally going to try all of your advice. I’m looking for the perfect book, but I just sang to them “When the Roses bloom again” Here’s hoping they will catch the hint!

    Glad you’ve shown your face! I’m sure the song will be a hit among the roses.

    Ummm…I love the idea of a stumpcot! 🙂
