DAY 7 NAJOWRIMO October 7, 2016

Another military move went through today. They’re always interesting to watch–such a variety of equipment and they’re all painted the same color(s). We always wonder where they’re coming from and where they’re going to. It’s not like with the freight trains that come through — we kind of know where they’re heading. But military stuff is a mystery.dscn3258a

It’s almost 5:30 p.m. and another day is coming to a close. One of the things that makes time fly these days is having to administer Robert’s eye drops 7 times a day. By the time we get to noon, half the day is gone, and then it’s 1:00 and we’re on a downward slope to late afternoon. It’s tiring for both of us and I know we will have another 3-4 weeks of this if he gets his left eye done fairly soon. But then it will be over and we can go back to our routines.

Meanwhile, we spend our time reading or playing Spider on the computer. I sit on the couch and read or do handwork. He’s taken to playing Spider on my computer, which means I’m on it less. That’s o.k. I do like sharing the computer with him, and it makes me find other things to do, which is good.

Tehachapi’s Apple Festival is coming up this weekend and we will be spending all day Sunday as docents at the Tehachapi Railroad Depot Museum. There’s going to be all sorts of fun things to do and see in town. It’s like a Fall harvest event.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Be grateful for each day — even when they seem to go faster and faster, they’re still a blessing.


About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    Why don’t you two have two computers? Perhaps it’s time to get a laptop for him. Yes, despite the many eye drops, you sound wonderful.

      He has his own brand new computer downstairs, and we have a new laptop in the other room. He’s just not very computer literate so I have to help him ‘a lot’. We used to have our older laptop sitting out on the kitchen counter and he’d play Spider solitaire there, but it got to be too old and slow. We still have it but I don’t have a clue what we’ll wind up doing with it because we don’t use it at all anymore.
