Sweetums Needed New Shoes

August 25, 2011

So we drove over to the Rehoboth outlets.  I wanted to look into the Dooney Bourke and, of course, Fossil.  We were on Route 9 to get to Route 1, when we came upon signs that said Detour and Shoulder Work Ahead.  Only it wasn’t.  It was Extreme Makeover.  I was surprised at how much work had been accomplished and how well organized eveything looked.  I believe they started on Monday.  That’s a really big soup kitchen.  It was a little slow due to rubber neckers.  But what do you expect?  This is LSD you know.  Around here, when a workman says he’ll have it done by Christmas, you need to ask which Christmas. 

Further on down the road, we stopped at the dairy farm and got chocolate shkes with black raspberry ice cream.  It was so good that I got brain freeze.  It’s a good thing I wasn’t driving. 

Sweetums only likes one kind of Reeboks.  Yeah.  I know.  Boring.  But I can’t point the finger.  I only wear Haflingers.  He parked by Fossil and walked over to Reeboks.  He was finshed by the time I came out of Fossil.  I bought a change puse.  I didn’t see anything else interesting.  I went to Dooney & Bourke and he followed me.  Here, again, I saw several things,but that was ‘just right’.  Sweetums liked a red suede, but it wasn’t quite right.    He is now looking at purses on-line for me.  That’s why I call him Sweetums.

The Mittens are in the Mail

December 14, 2007

I drove up to the post office this afternoon and deposited my package in the slot inside. Mercifully, it just fit. There was a long line at the window and I had more then enough stamps on it. The bridge over the river is out for two weeks so I had to drive out to the highway and come back in. It took about three times as long as usual.

The socks were a pair I started last summer, but forgot about until I was looking for yarn. The mittens were made from Lion Brand yarn that I think my mother had. It said machine washable and dryable on the label. It was the only kind she would use. They are thick and soft so I hope they make someone happy. Now I can get back to my daughter’s tunic. The reindeer are also about done, but I am not looking forward to putting them all together. It will be worth it. They really look good.

 

Here are my oldest and newest Haflingers. I love these shoes. They were made for me. The arch is perfect. I can put on a brand new pair and wear them all day like they were my oldest. That includes walking down to the horse farm with my goofy dog. I wonder how long I can go without scraping them. I bought two pair because that’s what they had on sale in my size.
