Flowers and Shoes
Sorry about the dreadful post this morning. But that is just how it is.
I took 5 hours of vacation time today - the first time I have had off since staring my new job 3 months ago. It felt wonderful to, first of all, sleep until it was light outside. And then I sat outside this afternoon and smelled lilac blossoms. I don't know if there is any smell I like better!
My back yard tulips are stunning this year. The orange is so crazy bright - and I love bright orange!
Later I hopped into my car and drove to the store to get a pair of brown shoes. Who knew it is so difficult to find a pair of brown flats? I found a pair of beige flats which will work with brown or khaki pants and also a pair of sandals that I particularly like. I can ill afford to buy shoes, but am I supposed to go to work in my bare feet?
In the immortal words of Gloria Gaynor:
I will survive.
God is in his heaven and he loves me - just like he loves you.
