Stunning Wednesday

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

WOW. What a pretty day today. The air temperature was hot (85), the wind was low, the shadows were sharp-edged, and the day was simply pretty.

I got my new glasses today. AAAARGH. I have had no-line bifocals for years, but these are taking more time to get used to than the others. I nearly stepped off the steps wrong - I was looking down at the steps through the "reading" portion of the glasses. Weird.

The court hearings went well today.

    I have progressive lenses and love them, though I had to have them fine-tuned. Sometimes that has meant having the bottoms tilted in toward my cheeks more. I fell and bent the glasses all out of shape, and the nose pieces were changed so that the glasses rode too low until I had the nose pieces adjusted so the nonexistent "lines" were where they needed to be. You'll figure it out. Just don't quit until they're right!

    You're resilient and will soon adjust to the new lenses.

    @Grammy_22. Yes, getting older is fun, well, different, anyway. But I look forward to it. I no longer color my hair (rarely did it, anyway), and I celebrate the fact that I am 60 and still going strong. Actually, getting stronger. After all, if a person starts law school at age 50, I think the same person cannot actually be very old at 60!

Thanks for our comment. I will NEVER do the progressive lenses. Awful things!

    I had finally had to break down and get the lined bifocals and put vanity issues aside. I went from Varilux lenses to a regular progressive. The progressives were absolutely awful!!!! I like knowing that there is a definite area for the bifocal.

Isn't growing older so much fun????
