Almost as far back as I can remember, I loved shoes. In high school, I spent all the cash I could muster on shoes. Through my working years, I continued to spend way too much on shoes. If I had a purple and yellow dress, I had purple and yellow shoes. It isn’t funny but when I moved away from Lake Charles, my favorite shoe store closed! I doubt it was my leaving town that resulted in their closing but the timing was suspect, don’t you think?
I can’t say when I quit caring about shoes but I certainly didn’t need tons of shoes when I wasn’t working and rarely left home. But, I’ve come a very long way and shoes just do not matter to me.
Who would ever have thought these would be my new favorite shoes?
Saturday at the Amish store I got these rubber boots . . fleece lined rubber boots! They’re perfect because my pants legs fit right in the boots. The boots slip on, slip off easily, don’t flop around on my feet . . what more could I ask for in a pair of shoes? 🙂 We don’t wear shoes inside the house but no matter what shoes I wore out to the chicken coop, I got grass clippings on my pants and then had grass clippings all through the house. I was already thinking about what shoes I was going to wear when we get snow. Now I know . . my black rubber boots! My snow boots lace up and I knew I wasn’t going to take the time to lace and unlace them as much as I go out and check for eggs.
When I go back up to the Amish store, I’m going to get a second pair so I can keep one pair downstairs and one pair upstairs.
It’s so nice to find a pair of shoes I love . . and for $19. Think they’ll go nicely with my dress clothes? Probably not but I spend a lot more time checking on my chickens than I do being dressed up.
