Today is going to be a lazy day here at Chez Nana. After some fairly busy days lately, it will be nice to just take it easy. That doesn’t mean, however, that it will be a wasted day … I do plan to spend plenty of time with needle and thread on T#4’s quilt.
I had an eye exam yesterday … I’ve always been pretty good about getting my annual eye exam … although the term “annual” might be used pretty loosely since it seems like my exams are more like 15-18 months apart. But since my dad has been diagnosed with glaucoma, I am certainly more faithful about seeing my optometrist. My close (bifocal) prescription has changed – pretty significantly, so I’ll be getting new glasses. Thankfully the staff at my optometrist's office are helpful … it’s not easy picking out new frames when you’re as blind as I am … it didn’t help that my eyes were dilated, too.
Because my eyes had been dilated, I had to come up with a Plan B when I got home … my original plan was to do some quilting, but I couldn’t see well enough to quilt … so I worked out in the yard. It was such a nice day that I was glad that my original plan fell through.
