We finished up the patio cleaning task this afternoon. Elaine cleaned tables and stair railings while I hosed down the patio floor and the patio chairs. I had swept the floor earlier to remove the majority of the dust and debris, mostly leaves, to make it easier to clean. It all looks clean and sparkly now, especially when the floor was still wet. While I had the hose in hand I also washed down the skirting around the house in the patio area as well as the awning posts. The posts tend to collect dust and dirt over time.

It was time for Gizmo’s six-month eye checkup today at Eye Care for Animals and he got a good report – he can go nine months to his next one. He has Pigmentosa Keratitis in both eyes (a brown pigment band runs across the center of each eye) and fluid in the cornea of his left eye (the one that got damaged when he was younger) that gives it a white appearance. Dr Carla Hibbs said his condition was stable enough to go a longer period. He will still have to have multiple eye drops and ointments applied morning and evening, for the rest of his life. But those are to keep infections down and maybe keep the conditions from getting worse. Continue reading Gizmo eye doctor. Texas Roadhouse dinner. Newsletter.
