tasty hashbrowns, bacterial eye infections, compost pile

Remember the other day when I made a dry hashbrown casserole? Today, I made a tasty, moist hashbrown casserole. Yes, to make it tasty, I added in many more calories. Fat is flavor :-)
bag of frozen hashbrowns
1 cup of sour cream
2 cups of grated parmesean
1 grated onion
salt, pepper
5 eggs beaten eggs
spray casserole dish with some non-stick
400 degrees for 40 minutes

I'm at home from work today because I have bacterial infections in both eyes. I can see fine buy feels like I have a piece of gravel in my right eye. I drove myself 1 1/2 hr one way (just using my left eye) yesterday to my eye Doctor in Hickory. After looking at my eyes, he said that he understood why I was complaining about my right eye but didn't undertsand why I wasn't complaining about the left eye too, but it just feels dry. Anyway, I've got two new types of eyedrops although Dr said it may take 4 days to start feeling better. The first set of eyedrops brought me to my knees - painful. I hope I'm not allergic to the new cataract lenses, if so, then what?
On the other side of the patchwork wall is my compost pile. As soon as Mike put up the divider on Saturday, those curious turkey hens were up there nosing around, aren't they darling? I've got lots of leaves in my pile now.

Gotta go do more eyedrops and lay in bed a while with eyes closed. I think President Obama is coming on TV to discuss yesterday's election, so I'll listen to him.

I bet that hurts!! I know what a stye feels like and that could drive a person nuts.
Hope your meds work quickly and effectively..take care!
On that hashbrown casserole...I will have to make that(after I get this first 10lbs off). I need to focus or I will never be able to keep up this winter. Course I need to take off 30, but why set the number so high when Thanksgiving is just around the corner...then Christmas...then...

I am so sorry to hear you are having problems with your eyes! It can really knock you off your feet! Please take care! Snow!! Ugh! I am originally from New England and just today, I complained to my husband how I can't believe we didn't move south enough! We are all so happy to hear you found a caring home for Chamonix and momma! I'm sure it's hard to let them go. Also, we always have the same trouble leaving comments on your blog. I have to sign into the google account before I can comment. I don't know what the deal is with that!

Eye infections are troublesome and definitely must be cared for well. I hope they get better soon. Your hash browns look so good! I want to try this recipe soon...thanks.

You are definitely right Southerheart! For instance, since you said you feel like you had a dry eye on the left side. It may lead in to dry eye syndrome and the itching, burning, and irritation that goes with it. According to Arizona eye care It actually affects over 20 million people in the United States alone. The consumption of essential fatty acids can effectively provide dry eye relief. However, with the many nutritional supplements available, confusion often clouds the decision making process.
