Hi Folks ~ I want to thank all of you for your encouragement to get back the the optical center with my glasses. Come to find out, the wrong # had been put into the computer than what was on the written prescription by the dr. They apologized, and I should have new glasses within the next couple of weeks. They are doing one pair at a time, so I still have my new sunglasses. Guess they want to make sure they get it right before doing these.
Yesterday I got a few groceries, then headed out to Good Will since it was Sr. Citizen’s day. I needed some colorful tops. I don’t always find any when I go there, but this time I found 5. AND one of them was a ‘Tommy Bahama’. If you remember from a past post I mentioned how I’d seen new ones at Dillards and was shocked at the price of $118 each.
Here they are in photo below. The ‘TB’ shirt is second from the left in blues and creams with palms and hibiscus. These cost me $2.33 each. The first shirt on the left was bought at Salvation Army, along with the ball of crochet thread, 49 cents, and the purse in mint conditon, Laura Scott, $5. I didn’t know the purse brand but looked it up when I got home and it’s around $40 online. I needed a larger one and this should be just fine.
Today after going to the optical center I stopped at the Salvation Army thrift again as it’s on my way home. I found a set of Woolrich 100% floral patterned cotton sheets, $11. I saw a twin flat sheet for $20 online on Ebay. Also got a set of different floral patterned pillow cases, 99 cents each.
Here is the sheet pattern. This was hanging on the clothesline. The bed is now made up with fresh smelling new sheets and pillow cases. I’m ready to get horizontal to read before sleep.
As to butterfly gardening, I’m not just starting out. We’ve had butterflies here for years, I’m just gathering potted butterfly plants into the ‘secret garden’, so that I can enjoy them all the more when looking out the window. I sure look forward to learning more from this young lady I mentioned in earlier post.
Summer is here. Hot and humid, we need rain. Hurricane season is to be more active so they say. UGH! That’s not good news.
Yesterday my feet were killing me, and were hurting when I went to bed. They felt better when I got up this morning and weren’t bad all day, even now, they don’t feel too bad. Healing takes time and I’m thankful for good days.
Happy Summer ~ FlowerLady

The month of leaves and roses
When pleasant sights salute the eyes,
And pleasant scents the noses."
