Shoe enough

See you at Heindselman’s Yarns in Provo next week! At 4:00 Wednesday, a few hours after I wave goodbye to John at the MTC. Have author’s pen (not to mention kid), will travel.

shoe enoughI was starting to pack for the trip, going over things and wondering: do I have any good shoes that actually have an enclosed heel? Been too long. I could just picture myself flicking Utah snow up into the backs of my legs as I walked with these. Went looking, and found a pair of uncomfortable pumps (they all are. It’s the nature of being 7 EE) that I think I’d bought for and then hadn’t worn since my grandmother’s funeral at 96…meaning, in ’96. Old.

A friend of mine came over yesterday, dashing through a storm and on up to the door, and as I opened the door, was going, “You can really tell it’s winter out there!”

I tried, I really tried–but it didn’t work, and I burst out laughing in spite of myself: “Shovelling 72″ in 17 days!” I responded. (Where we’d moved from in New Hampshire.)

Ah yes. California winters. Where the–well, you go look at this.img00041.JPG Christmas lights in palm trees. You tell me if that’s nonpsychodegradeable or not.

8 1/2 EEE here.
If you wear stout woolen socks with your open back shoes, it’s possible to be somewhat comfortable in the snow.

I think all heels/ pumps are made to be uncomfortable. That’s why men stopped wearing them and passed them along to us. *grin*

Actually, I’m a 37 in Birkis, which supposedly translates to a 6.5. They’re the only shoes I can get wide enough–I think my Swedish ancestors came with their own built-in snowshoes.

I’m glad you’re going to get to see some snow.:)
Wishing you a wonderful trip.

Oh my gosh, I am so behind in my reading.
I love the flowers.
The palm trees with lights are a little odd.
