COVID-19 & Eye Exams
I ordered my new glasses, and was very pleased to see that masks where very much required while in the building, even for the grumpy old man who pretended he did not see the sign even though I watched him stand there for a minute before grumbling and walking in.
Turns out I need a new prescription, and with it some new glasses, but other then that my eyes seem to be extremely healthy.
COVID-19 & Eye Exams
I've avoided going to the eye doctor during the entire pandemic because being in a small enclosed room with many other people did not sound conferrable, but today I am biting that bullet and getting my eyes examined. With going so many years now without getting a new prescription I can tell my vision is not what it use to be. Hoping some new lenses will help.
Was just sent this quote in a news letter sent to me from Plum Village. It's very fitting with a lot of things I've been reflecting on here lately, and figured I would share.

As the royal family congregates around the Queen after her doctors expressed concern, remember to keep calm and carry on. My thoughts are with the Queen, her family, and the people of the UK.
Managed to pick up a few books for my library while we were at the mall. Most of the topics where on spirituality but Aaron did find one for me on Dyslexia. Very interested in reading that one once I finish the book I am currently working my way through on the 12+ hour car ride home.

Yup, the Orville is just as good as I remembered. Currently watching it while my husband reads a book. Makes me wonder when I’ll be able to buy season three.
I never realized how hard it would be to find and buy an Ultra HD Blu-ray Reader for my computer. I know most people don't buy physical any more, but I just want to be able to own my own collection instead of renting it from other companies and I want to not have it DRMed out the bum. Am I alone in this?
Now to get it to auto deploy the backend systems upon successful completion of the test, build, test, release steps... Then I'll be integrating it into the frontend and be off to the races!
I’ve been sick the last couple of days, but feeling significantly better today! So it’s time to much stuff happen.
