eye opener

whilst D. lay in the OR, I went for a walk - to distract myself - art on the wall

behind the tree a Picasso sculpture

art on the street


Andy Warhol's famous quote



and back in the Eyehospital waiting-room a book on trompe l'oeil, with a painting that hangs in the Statens Museum in Copenhagen, a museum I have visited 
back home, I've started introducing christmas decorations, like this papier mâché tree I made for x-mas last year;

we woke up at 5am this morning to a white world, which for me was scary as we had to drive to Rotterdam to the Eyehospital for D's retina operation, the by-roads were white, once we were on the highway it was okay, even though it continued to snow; by 6:30 we had arrived at our destination and we were on time for the check-in at 6:45, the operation started 8 am; I had breakfast, read a bit and, as mentioned went for a stroll. Everything went smoothly and we were back here half past one, this was very good news for me because it meant I could have my tires changed to 'winter tires', relief on many fronts!
Tomorrow we have another appointment with the surgeon and then weekend!
D's in bed sleeping......
