It snowed yesterday. It's October. This is unacceptable weather behavior in my estimation. I spent most of the morning and afternoon feeling rather blah. You know what I mean? Just BLAH!
I made pumpkin crisp. Eh, that wasn't what I needed. Listened to Brooke Fraser, and that perked me up a bit because she is simply divine. (You must listen to her "Live at the Aotea, Auckland, New Zealand" album. It's too beautiful for this world.) And then I had to fold clothes, as well as iron, for a good three hours. Yeah...blah again.
My mood completely mirrored the gray and foggy sky. I refused to feel sorry for myself, but I will admit that I was heading in that direction. Then UPS dropped off a package. I tore into the box and dug out these:
Nothing like a bit of vanity to boost my self-esteem! These sassy and classy Manolo-lookalikes were less than $20. Let me repeat that, y'all...less than $20!
I love cheap thrills. I love fabulous heels. And this particular pair happens to be comfortable! Oh, it makes me happy.
Today I'm going to wear these shoes while I do the dishes...fold more laundry...play Polly Pockets with Caroline...let Libbey read to me after school...and I'll even wear 'em to bed. (Scott will love that, of course. Ahem.) I'm gonna wear them because it's Wednesday. Because it's no longer snowing. And because I can. It's for the good of my feet and the benefit of my state of mind. We're all the better for it.
