The strawberry bag is now finished.
Yesterday I went to see Grant, my friendly optometrist. Apparently my eyes are stable but he agreed that my embroidery spectacles could do with increased magnification. Thankfully I had taken a piece of stitching with me, so I stitched a little while he measured and calculated and in a week or two I will have new lenses. On that happy note I walked the length of the city's main shopping street and crossed off several items from my list before coming home to the usual weekend chores.
This afternoon I braved the rain to go to the library and now the latest Daniel Silva book is calling out to me. However so are the dinner dishes and the preparation of this week's lunches, so duty needs to come before pleasure.
