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.

Relieved to know that today you will not be barefoot in the office.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the tulips! Shoes are a wonderful thing, they are the easiest thing I shop for, though sometimes even they aren't easy.

XOXO

What about all those other shoes that you have? Ha--I don't think that my wife ever has enough shoes. It's okay. She can buy those that I haven't.

I'm always amazed by such brilliant colors that pop out of the earth. They are almost too good to be true.
