The blogging angels are against me today

Not sure what is up. I can't view my own posts and can only read a few of other people's. It could be something about how I hook up from the office. Not sure, but at any rate, I'm going to post while I can get in and I'll catch up on my reading tonight. We are enjoying (right!) a record breaking heatwave. Yesterday was 105* and today promises to be the same. Several of my co-workers went to lunch, but I just don't see the point in leaving the office, especially since I had a really nice salad in the fridge, just chillin' and waiting for me.

Tomorrow, my mentor and I are going to lock ourselves in a conference room at her office and work on our Indian Orange Peel quilts. After all the shopping and talking and looking at quilts we've done, this will be the first time we've sewn together. That should be interesting. And, I already know that we foundation piece differently so we'll have to see if we share ideas or if she insists I do it her way. That could happen as she's older and has been quilting since I was...well, since I was a yung'un and like I've said before, she's my mentor for a reason and there's a reason she's got all those ribbons. There are 120 arcs in the quilt and I only got 36 cut out last night, but that's no big deal as I'm sure I won't be able to piece more than that in a single sewing day, especially since we'll yack half the time away, deciding which fabrics go together and which ones do not. I'm taking my whole quilting cotton stash with me to choose fabrics from. Whoohoo, after my last cleaning out, I can finally get it all in the car at one time. I may have to sit on a box to drive, but I should still be able to reach the pedals. (Okay, I cracked myself up with that visual).

I picked up my new glasses yesterday...again, and with the new prescription, I can't see a darn thing. He warned me that there would be a long adjustment period because the script was so different. I'll probably take both pair tomorrow, just to make sure I see to sew along the lines. Unfortunately, they made yet another mistake. Not so bad that I refused delivery of the glasses again, but enough that it's time to find another eye doctor. Love the doctor. Can't deal with the support staff. Don't have time to wait while they play around.

Okay, that's all that's going on around here. Work, work, work. Play, play, play. Now it's time to eat, eat, eat.

See ya on the internet. Lane

Glasses! I'm on the cusp of deciding that I've come to THAT point in life where I need to get bifocals.

I wish I had the guts to do an orange peel - so beautiful. Looking forward to seeing pics.

I have to admit that my "new glasses" that I got a year ago are one the bathroom counter and I have my "old" ones one. They lasted about two days and I was done. I even had my eyes rechecked by a different doctor and he thought my new ones were spot on. I never was good at doing what I was suppose to......lol Have a good weekend Lane. MaryMM
