The Miracle of The Saint / El Miraglo Del Santo

Hay una versión español después de la versión inglés.

IT'S A MIRACLE! San Geraldo — who truly is a saint — took out the trash this morning. And the recycling.

And... he relined the bins in the kitchen with new bags (something he's said he doesn't know how to do).

And he has been washing the dishes. Maybe not as promptly as I might do them — if I were able do them — but they're washed.

And, after he went grocery shopping, he put all the groceries away.

I could get used to this.

No, actually I couldn't. I'm so grateful but I'm already going a little nuts. My eye seems to be doing just fine, but this whole recovery thing is not as easy as I thought it would be. I'm going to cut out my morning caffeine. I get too animated after one cup and I'm not supposed to move my head that much.

¡ES UN MILAGRO! San Geraldo, que en verdad es un santo, sacó la basura esta mañana. Y el reciclaje.

Y ... recargó los contenedores en la cocina con bolsas nuevas (algo que él dijo que no sabe cómo hacer).

Y él ha estado lavando los platos. Quizás no tan rápido como yo podría hacerlos, si yo pudiera hacerlo, pero están lavados.

Y, después de ir al supermercado, se guardó todas las compras en la cocina,

Me podría acostumbrar a esto.

No, en realidad no pude. Estoy muy agradecido, pero ya estoy un poco loco. Mi ojo parece estar bien, pero esta recuperación no es tan fácil como pensé. Voy a cortar mi cafeína de la mañana. Me siento demasiado animado después de una taza y se supone que no debo mover la cabeza tanto.

      My entire persona is one of animation. Staying still is torture! About to FaceTime with the Kid Brother!

      I'm not one to ignore doctor's orders -- nor Jerry's. It's going well, but this is going to be a very, very loooooong month!

      I think he's a keeper. Maybe another 36 years?

  6. Must be terribly frustrating to be still. But I could sit and look at those flowers for hours. Hope the worst is soon past.

      The worst is already past. The terrace is overjoyed right now. More photos to come.

  7. G'day, Mitch, it's been way too long since I visited. *smacks self*
    I hope your recovery continues apace, matey.

    I had eye surgery myself earlier in the year (removal of a pterygium). No big deal really, but I found it a pain in the arse, er, eye.

    Eyes are scary things. We just take them for granted until the dratted things misbehave. I am sending a stern message to yours to jolly well behave in future, or else!

      So good to see you here! A pterygium? I'll have to look that up. It sounds like an alien life form. Glad you've recovered. You're right about taking them for granted. I still can't see out of my left eye (just a blur) and it's very disconcerting. I should consider myself very lucky.

      Thanks. Going well. I'm thinking of heading into the kitchen to whip up some profiteroles.

      Fortunately, I'm such a lightweight with even Tylenol that all I want to do is sleep!
