I didn't go for my walk again this morning as we were getting ready for the housecleaner lady to come and Gordon had an eye appointment this morning too so we got ready for that.
While Gordon was at the eye doctor I went for my walk around the neighbourhood. I'm very familiar with that area as my first condo that I bought was only a couple of blocks from where I was walking. Gordon and I used to walk all over the Cityview area when he first came to Ottawa.

Snow on the trees
Lots of snow - they didn't plow the side streets after yesterday's snow
More snow on trees
Gordon got good news and bad news at the eye doctor's. He has the beginnings of cataracts but they aren't nearly ready for an operation yet but he also has the beginning of macular degeneration. Macular degeneration runs in his family. So the eye doctor recommended he start taking Vitalux. So the bad news is that he has these problems, the good news is they've just started so hopefully the Vitalux will delay the progression. My sister, Betty also had the beginnings of macular degeneration a few years ago and the Vitalux has stopped it's progression.
After that we came home for lunch and to rest for the remainder of the day.
It was about 0C (32F) for most of the day today so it was pretty warm for this time of year.
