I'm handling hymn sing day at the nursing home better now.
At least as long as we don't have to sing "In the Garden".
This time we sang one of MY favorite songs, with the line that I love, "Ponder anew, what the Almighty can do".
Anyway.., I brought my mom one of my board books with Bible songs since they can no longer give her a hymn book.
In other news, I FINALLY finished my Alcott biography. I LOVED it. So much I did not know. Next up, I have a book of letters of Nathaniel Hawthorne that looks interesting. Especially now that I know that he bought Fruit lands after the Alcott's abandoned that idea. Daughter bought that book for me at a college book sale. It's green and she knew I collected green books. Then, I plan to move on to Waldon. Bronson Alcott was the main person with whom Thoreau communicated with while living at Waldon's Pond. Then, Emerson. He and Bronson Alcott were friends, then weren't, then were again.
But first, I think I need something light and happy to read. Or, at least not deep.
Tonight I had to return to the eye doctor to have my eyes dilated. I'd forgotten how uncomfortable that is. And, I needed another glaucoma pressure test. As far as my optic nerves and retinas go, all's well. What I do have (not a surprise at all) is ocular hypertension, with readings today of 26. My eyes are still extremely dilated, which just may mean no reading for me tonight.
Seriously. I do need to learn Braille. Of course, since my finger tips are numb, I'll have to learn to read it with my elbow or something.
