If you stop by to visit with me on any cool weather Sunday afternoon, you will find me reading by the fire.
Currently, I am reading four books which means there are books, stacks of magazines and readers to be found beside every comfortable chair.

Mr. Mickey asked me to go with him to pick out his new glasses last week. It has been several years since I have bought prescription glasses because readers are all I need to wear. I didn't realize how expensive prescription eyeglasses have gotten. Wow! I could have eleven pairs of stylish readers for that price!

Eye-bobs is a great line of stylish, high-quality readers. They are very comfortable, and they arrive with a nice protective case and glass cleaning cloth. They recently sent me these two styles to try, and I like them very much. They are lightweight and very comfortable to wear. I love the larger lenses! All the styles offered on their website are very modern and youthful looking.
Bob Frapples is the name of the frame below, and I chose the navy front with blue denim trim.

Thank Me is the name of the style shown below. I chose the black front with matte gunmetal trim.

I always look for glasses with a square shape to flatter my roundish face.
The question, "What do you wear at home when you aren't going somewhere special?" is one that I often get. During those rare times when I have a few hours to myself, I put on something soft and comfortable and curl up with a book. Since early childhood, I have been an avid reader.
The old cashmere cardigan I am wearing here is my all-time favorite from J.Jill.
The slip-on style shoes are old by Sperry. Similar style here.
You will see these black pants on me often! Made from a luxurious stretch crepe, these pants can easily be dressed up or down. (As you will see in another post coming soon.) Mr. Mickey snapped these photos as we were relaxing before a long drive across the mountains for a special dinner date.
For those of you who asked. My hair is still silver/gray. Some lighting makes it look otherwise.
I mostly read to learn more about something that interests me. These are the four books I am reading right now.
I hope you had a lovely and peaceful Sunday afternoon.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
