THERE you are....


Oh what a difference REAL glasses make!!!

(exept for the fact that I'm tripping over things that aren't really there,
and stepping waaaaay up and over little things like thread on the floor...)

...these are progressive bi-focals and wowzers...I feel like I'm in a weird bubble!

Oh I am a MOVIE STAR in my new spectacles...
aren't they purty?
(that's my Hollywood/Famous/Cheesey smile)

They're perfect...
and they darken in the sunshine
so I don't have to fumble with sunglasses.

AWESOME.

it will take me a little getting used to,
I still am trying to peer over the tops of them, and
am definitely not used to seeing things so clearly...

(my, is this old farmhouse DUSTY!)
anyhoo, I'm thrilled...
the computer screen is SO much sharper now...YAY!
that means MORE CROSS STITCH patterns!!! woohoo!
(working on Christmas as we speak btw)

~AND~
LOOKie at this most awesome cupboard that I found!
it's grubby and grungy and painted black and beautiful!!


it had a tag on it for 99.00 so it came home with me!

I'm either gonna put it here in the shop, or perhaps next to my chair in the den in the house...I have stuff all over the den, and this little cupboard would help me corral it in some.


It is as HOT as BLUE BLAZES here.
we've been in the high 90's for the past 2 days,
and by the afternoon/early eve, you just can't go outside...

so, if you're having weather like us, please please make sure to
drink plenty of water, take care of your plants and animals...and just go easy.

Blessed be, Friends~
Lori

Lori, I love your new cabinet. I have lots of stuff I could store in there myself. And you look cute in your new glasses. I've got the no-line bifocals too with the Transitions lenses....love 'em. But I don't know what it is about new glasses that I always feel like I'm walking uphill and that there's a step in front of me. The last time we got new glasses, we made the mistake of going shopping. I got so nauseous from the new lenses that I ended up sitting in Penney's shoe department and crying.

Lori,
Great choice on those frames! You look fabulous! Aren't transition lenses wonderful? Worth the extra money! Take care in the heat down there and will look forward to more (wonderful "detailed" patterns! Cathy g

Your comment about stepping HIGH over thread on the floor just made me laugh! I remember when I used to wear progressive lenses and get a new pair. Once right before a trip to Phoenix and the cave dwellings in the mountains - very fun going up and down all those steps! LOLOLOL Thanks for the laugh.

You look great in your new specs! I'm beginning to think you have a built-in cool stuff radar system - neat cupboard!

Stay nicely chilled,
Jane

Great new glasses! I love the little crystals at the edges (very stylin'!) Glad to hear all's well that ends well - have enjoyed reading your optician stories :-)
