I am an artist at heart, and when my cataracts got so bad that I didn't feel like my painting was as good as I'd like for it to be, I turned to cooking. Cooking is kind of like art. But it was an art I could do with a little less need for the eyes. I can smell, and taste when its done, and while details are important because pretty food always tastes better, I didn't have to worry about intricate details, small lines, color choices, staying in the lines. Food became my art, and i hope I am as good at it as I think I am.
Thanks to my wonderful doctor at Aiken Opthamology we have one cataract down and one more to go and Ill be fully sighted again. The surgery on the one eye has made such a great difference that i thank my cataract doctor at least 5 times a day. I am driving again, I am active again, I am cleaning house again. I am living life again and I love it.
My family is loving it too. I was honestly to the point I wasn't really living anymore. I was to the point i didn't drive, I felt trapped in my own skin, my children had to pick out my clothes for me to wear because I couldn't tell what was mine and what was my oldest daughters who is one size smaller than me, and don't even get me started n matching.. I played it off as intentional, they all thought i was just lazy. But I couldn't see shit.
Maybe now I will have some more interesting topics to blog about now that I am re-entering the world of the seeing, venturing out more, seeing, and doing things again. But I wont stop recipe-ing because I am a huge fan of good food.
So.. with all that said.. Ill leave you with my baked spaghetti recipe..
