I am back to my regular knitting schedule now that tax season is over. I finished another pair of fingerless mitts and started another pair of mittens. Mitts and mittens are the chosen gift of the year and I am well on the way to being ready for Christmas—if I can just stop giving them away before December.
On the subject of change, almost two years ago I got new glasses and was fortunate to purchase the absolute best eyeglass frames I have ever had! They are those singular, once in a lifetime frames that look good, feel good and get “Wow I like your eyeglass frames” comments. I truly never thought I would change them and actually worried about what I would do if they broke, or I lost them, or they just became old and weak. Thank you Michael Kors!!
During a discussion with the eye doctor last week I admitted that I am one of a growing number of people who spend more than 2 hours at a computer each day. Actually I spend 6 or 7 hours at a computer then after work I read on a Kindle and/or knit, which is known as close work in vision jargon. After establishing that I have CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome) which makes it hard to focus after being in front of a monitor for so long, she recommended CVx. CVx is a new lens that helps the eye relax during computer/close work and aids in refocusing afterward. Note: I find that my distance vision benefits from the lenses as well.
Unfortunately the lenses would not fit in my beloved frames and even though I did get a new prescription for them I doubt I will ever wear them again. The reason is that the new lenses are better than anything I have ever had before. I don’t think I will have people stop me and ask to buy my eyeglass frames right off of my face (as I did with the Michael Kors glasses) but the new glasses are Ralph Lauren and retro fashionable. That can’t be all bad!
Life is good.
