What’s on my mind today


Well, the most obvious thing is the fact that, after more than ten years, I now have little wispy bangs hanging in my eyes yet again. Big step, that one. But I left the decision in the ever-so-capable hands of Heather, my fave hair person. And I’m pretty pleased with the results. I’d been contemplating it for a while, so it was about time I just did something about it.

On the way to my appointment, I slipped on my new pair of sunglasses. I’m lazy about shopping for specs. I hate all the choices. And I’m not very glam to begin with. So when I slip on those fancy rose- and yellow-tinted frames, I just can’t see it. I’m just not Hollywood enough to pull it off. So I always fall back on Eddie Bauer for my sunglasses. Impatient, as always, I tried on about three pair and just went with one. Even on my way out the door today I asked Scott, “Do these look OK?” (He answered diplomatically, of course.)

Forget how they look, folks. The minute I slipped them on, the world became more vivid. They’re POLARIZED. Which follows suit, I’m sure, with the idea of attaching a polarized lens to your camera. I’ve never bought polarized sunglasses before. Boy, have I been missing out! I was so in awe of the color, that I kept bumping the glasses down my nose to see the “before” and “after.” Of course I did this while I was driving, which might be considered dangerous. I’ll be wearing these ALL THE TIME. I can promise ya.

Oh, and after months of saying, “I need to do that,” I’ve finally signed up for a Flickr account. I’ve only posted a few sets so far. Time is a commodity in this household these days.
