This is hard work: Sorting out my freezer


This is probably not one of my favourite chores. At the best of times I find it to be a task that is filled with challenge and I am often called upon to exercise patience and an ability to find ways to distinguish items.  

For most of the time my freezer is organized to ensure that I know where everything is. But whenever Mom visits I need to know how things are organized and where she has put them.  

Mom is extremely aware of my needs and requirements and goes out of her way to ensure that she places items in a methodical manner for me.  Still, it does not stop me from ensuring that after she has left me to return to her home, I can function well in my freezer without having to depend on sighted assistance.

It takes a bit of work: Distinguishing the cartons


This circumstance arises whenever I purchase a carton of juice along with a carton of milk. Trust me when I tell you that they both feel the same. Even when I try to find a distinction between them after uncorking them, it is very difficult to tell the difference.  

So, what do I do? When I purchase them at the supermarket, I place a piece of tape beneath one of them. That is, I put a small piece of tape at the bottom so that I know what I am opening. I simply think of it as another way to overcome a challenge.

Fun times: Those naughty knitting needles


Over three years later and I still like to refer to my knitting needles as naughty knitting needles. I have learned so much over the years; from Miko, Robbie, and now Rochelle.  

I have learned to work with the large bamboo needles, the middle sized ones, the fine ones, and now the circular needles.  

I wish that I could have progressed more quickly, but as they say: patience is a virtue and more haste means less speed. No use blaming it on those naughty knitting needles. Blame it on me! I need to show them who is the  boss and it is not them! It is me!  

What is my  latest project? I am in the midst of knitting a hat! Good luck to me! And while I’m at it, watch out knitting needles!  Time for us to work together now!

Extremely frustrating: Unable to open the pill on the card


I would say that this was probably one of the more frustrating challenges or experiences for me. First off, the pill was very tiny and then it took every effort on my part to carefully use my nail to punch a hole in order to enable the pill to drop into my hand. 

Then I had to ensure that the pill had indeed fallen into my hand.  It was so tiny that I needed to search the entire palm of my hand to find it.  Then, when I found it, I had to take it gingerly from hand to mouth and then put it on my tongue. 

I never knew that this would take such a long time for me to accomplish but there you have it.  Another challenge for me to overcome.

Humorous but challenging: Searching for the rubber band


Looking back on this experience now, I can only smile.  You see, when they fall they do not make any sound so one needs to use their sense of direction to try and determine where it could have fallen. That is, if you are blind or vision-impaired.

This is exactly what I did when it fell and whereas for a person with sight it is much easier, it is not for me as a blind person.  As long as I remember this, I’ll be just fine. 

I had made up my mind that this search was going to take a few minutes but thanks to my internal GPS I managed to find said rubber band much more quickly than expected.

I went down on my hands and knees and began methodically to move my hands around. I was careful to move my hands in sync and over specific areas of my kitchen. I think that it took me about two minutes to find my rubber band and it was probably in the area where I felt it should be.

My beloved home street: Mom's view of Tragarete Road


Her view is nice and simple: a somewhat exciting and noisy street when we were growing up, to one today that is a lot quieter. No nightly activities and no one fighting or dogs chasing each other anymore. 

Truth be told, I somewhat miss the dogs barking and playing on the pavements. I miss the folks interacting with each other, and I sure miss the smells of baking goodies. 

There used to be a cinema when we were kids but that, too, is gone and now it has been replaced by a night club where music is nothing but noise and booming beats ringing out.  The cars still travel down our beloved Tragarete Rd but there are not as many.  Even the gas station at the corner is much quieter now.

I guess as they say: things should not be expected to remain the same forever.  Things change and times change and this is our beloved Tragarete Road today.
