Magazines, Vision, Bushes & Politics

Last night I was leaf­ing through Real Sim­ple mag­a­zine, wait­ing for Sam to come to bed. I notice ads in this magazine—why? Prob­a­bly because there are so damned many of them. And some are the stinky kind, which can be prob­lem­at­ic. I’ve just real­ized how much I’ve liked not read­ing main­stream mag­a­zines for the most part in the last few years, sim­ply because I don’t get exposed to per­fume samples.

But any­way, the ad for Focus Night ‘n Day con­tact lens­es remind­ed me that I real­ly only liked wear­ing con­tact lens­es when I had the extend­ed wear kind. That way I did­n’t have to mess with the whole clean­ing thing every day. Less han­dling meant few­er oppor­tu­ni­ties to tear or lose one, too. I just put in eye­drops each morn­ing, and voilá! I could see. I hate mess­ing with the dai­ly clean­ing. And when the extend­ed wear lens­es were tak­en off the mar­ket, it was real­ly the begin­ning of the end for me wear­ing con­tacts at all.

They’re back, though, and I’m inter­est­ed. This par­tic­u­lar brand does­n’t seem to come in the toric lens­es I need for actu­al decent vision, though. Yet. I’m think­ing more and more about get­ting con­tacts again soon, though.

There was also a brief arti­cle about a bush, the red twig dog­wood. I’m think­ing about bush­es? How the heck did that hap­pen? But I like the fact that it has pret­ty flow­ers in the spring and shows off its bright red twigs in the win­ter. Look­ing for a pic­ture to show you lead me to learn about the Nishi­ki Wil­low.

I’m think­ing about plant­i­ng things in yards. I must be mid­dle-aged now.
