Good luck or bad luck, some people say you make you own luck. Others say that there is no such thing as luck. Fate, luck, whatever you call it, mine is on the outs this year so far. Motorcycle is broke, gas is higher than ever, food prices have gone up, my weight has gone up, owe big time on taxes,my glasses broke again. Yep I guess that is what has got me right now. I am running around looking like a nerd with tape on their glasses. This time I will have to replace the whole pair. This is not going to be cheap. Insurance no longer covers any part of them. At best I am looking at $400. I do not have that kind of money laying around. I checked with America's Best and they said they do not cover my prescription under their plan. Mine is one of the "restrictions". I may still end up going there. When it rains it pours...
Speaking of pouring. It does not look like we are in a drought around here anymore. The ponds are full, the lake has come back up to normal level. We have gotten a lot of rain in the past week or so. The bad news is the water table is still very low. We are still under a statewide outdoor water ban. All water companies are still under a mandatory water use reduction.
My garden is still too soggy to work. My plants will not make it if I can't get them in it soon. Must have patience, darn it I don't want to have patience. I want it done NOW.
Easter is Sunday. I am cooking, of course. We will be eating at Candy's house. It is a bit hard to fit 13 people in this place. I have done it but it is not easy. This year all those same people are a lot bigger (kids have grown. Come to think of it, most of the adults have put on weight too! LOL)
Ok got to go. Garbage man is coming soon. I really do not want to miss him. He won't be here for another week.


  1. I think sometimes the Lion's Club helps with the expenses of glasses? If nothing else, maybe they can provide a frame for you? Good luck getting your luck back on track!


  2. wishing you a good day and I hope you have a wonderful Easter celebration with your family


  3. I hope you can get new glasses soon. I'd be really in trouble if my glasses were broken or lost! OMG I'm so blind I can't even see my wrist watch! LOL!
    Hope you have a wonderful Easter celebration with your family. I'm working Easter...and I get NO holiday pay either...<sigh>.
    Take it easy today.

  4. ... yeah, just keep at it ... don't know if it will help, but I tend give out hugs when i can't directly help someone ...


  5. your just getting all that stuff over with early in the year... I bet things improve.

  6. Hi Celeste, I recently had to have new glasses myself. We have to pay the cost of them ourselves but I was really lucky. The optitian had a deal, two pairs for the price of one, plus Jim and I have a health insurance where we get back half of the cost. Thankfully it hardly cost me anything despite the glasses being quite expensive to start with.  I hope you don`t have to pay too much for yours.

    Love Sandra xxxx

    Tough break about the glasses.  I hope you are able to find a reasonable pair.  I remember looking like a nerd myself at times when Mine were taped together.  I wear contacts now, but still have to use reading glasses.  I hope you are able to get your plants in the ground soon.

  8. I hate that so much is going wrong for you right now.  It seems like it always comes in bunches, doesn't it?  Every day I worry about the higher gas prices and food prices.  It seems like the sky is the limit anymore.

  9. I buy my glasses at HEB grocery store. Guess I'm lucky I only need them to read. Wishing you good luck. Paula

  10. God knows your needs and the desires of your heart.  I hope you and yours enjoy your Easter.  ;o)  -  Barbara
