Oh my, bad luck with spectacles.

Goodmorning everybody!

It was last Saturday in the afternoon that it happened. I had a little nap, just short, and awake again, I wanted to put on my spectacles. But it fell out of my hand, one "leg" of it had been broken.
And on such a good moment, Saturday late afternoon! Well, I fixed it with a tape, for the moment.
Next day I went into town centre to the shop to see, if they could mend it, or otherwise I needed a new pair of glasses.
Couldn;t be fixed, so I ordered new spectacles. All not so very dramatic, it may seem, but it came financially on a really bad time. Not to worry, we'll manage, but sometimes those " accidents" take place at not the right moment. I guess everybody knows how that feels, we all encounter it every now and then.

Hopefully my spectacles will be ready somewhere end of next week(they are slower with delivery because of holidays).

This week Jan tackeled a window at the front, that had to be painted again. He first gave it a protection coating, then had to sand down, and yesterday he gave it the final coat.
t sounds like a little job, but it always takes more time than you think.
As he was busy outside I tackeld the inside, meaning I did the vacuum cleaning, dusting, cleaning some cupboard windows, doing a laundry etc. Normal stuff, actually, but I am happy I did it.

Also took a few photos of the garden, but they are still on the camera, so they will have to wait for the next post.
Weather here is still nice, not really warm, but fine enough to have the doors open at daytime.
Today Jan has to go volunteering again, a week just passes by so quickly.
And every other day someone of us has to go to Heidi's home to feed the fish and gather the post.
Heidi called us this week, just to say that all is well and they arrived safely in France.
The weather there is much warmer than here, so in general I think we are better off here.

I have a freebie for you, made by Arlene with the Galina kit.
Sending you all wishes for a happy and wonderful weekend.

Good morning Kyra. Sorry to hear that your eyeglasses broke. It's always something though, isn't it? If things begin to go too smoothly, something always happens to upset the cart. Ah well, at least your new glasses will be coming soon. That reminds me that I need to order a new pair for myself. Mine are quite old and are rather fragile. I just never seem to get around to ordering the new ones.

I'll be looking forward to seeing more photos of your garden. It must be so lovely now to sit out there and relax. One of these days, I'm hoping to have my little porch built and then Pogo and I can sit out all the time. Hmmmm, such a happy thought.

Now I must get busy here. I have a few things I want to get done so that I can play with my new lens (for my camera) when it gets delivered today. You have a wonderful day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

Thanks for the lovelies from Arlene, they are terrific as usual!
So sorry about your spectacles...I know how that feels, but not so much anymore since the cataract surgery fixed my astigmatism, I no longer need glasses, except for reading or the computer. So strange as I wore them all the time for 50 years...LOL!
Wishing you and Jan a terrific weekend and thanks for the visit! Hugs, Mat

Hello Kyra,

Oh how I can relate to your trouble with your eye glasses! My eyes are near sighted. I need glasses for distance only and have to take them off to see close up. For some time I had the problem of smashing mine under the hood of my car when I was checking fluid levels. I would take them off to see, place them somewhere, forget about them, and then close the hood down....CRUNCH! I had one pair only 2 weeks. Finally I made myself a rule. Take them off and put inside on the dashboard before opening the hood. My glasses are safe now.:0)

Your garden is beautiful! I especially love your little pond with the froggies in it. Thanks also for the links for Do it yourself projects. Some good ideas there.

A special thanks for all of the beautiful scrap kits you make and so generously give for free. You are a very talented and creative lady and are my favorite scrap kit designer.

Take care and God bless,

Hello and Thank you for this lovely download. I can understand how you feel about having to replace your spectacles - the something similar happened to me a few years ago, it was very annoying at the time.
Have a great weekend...
