Sorry the dansko link didn't work. It worked when I posted (I always check it because I'm paranoid about that). I'll post a photo of the shoes when they get here. This is one I found online at shoes.com. They're like closed back clogs. They fit like clogs and the backs are designed to move as you walk. Some people find this disconcerting but I've come to really like it.
Today has been an odd weather day. When I woke up (after almost 12 hours of much needed sleep), I felt better and was sneezing less. My nose doesn't feel like it's going to come off and my head is clearer. There was some sun, but lots of dark clouds. As the day went by, there would be about 2 minutes of downpour and then some clearing and then clouds for a while and then the whole thing would start over. It made it hard for Pk to do anything outside. Now, at 7 pm, it's still 70 degrees and windy but hasn't rained for a while. Weird.
We got the winter clothes down even though the weather is unseasonably warm because I know this won't last. I washed and folded and put away all the sweaters and sweatshirts and long sleeved things we'll need. One more load and then all the laundry is done. I love this. My closet and drawers are all straightened out and neat. One weekend soon I have to attack the hall closet. It's full of old sheets and towels that I didn't want to throw out but are a real mess.
Tomorrow we're going to get a Sunday paper and go to the buffet for breakfast. If you get there early, you can spread out in a booth and read the paper and eat. Then it's a trip to the fancy grocery store for some spice Pk is looking for and a trip back to the kitchen store to exchange the beater for the mixer we bought last night. And then a trip to our local grocery store for our groceries. I'd like to shop at the fancy store but it's markedly more expensive and they don't have the selection our local store does.
Whooo. Here comes the rain again and I swear I hear thunder in the distance.

I didn't mention in my last post (probably because I'm not always comfortable with my own sexuality), but having Pk look at me in that way he has, makes me feel sexy. Knowing that he will appreciate the way I look is all it takes. And looking sexy for him is all I need. It makes him happy and he makes me happy. 'nuff said. We've had a busy week. Work has been busier since I'm losing a doctor (she's moving to Chicago) and we are juggling to make sure people get seen as needed. Our Director came around today showing someone the building. She came by my office and said "here are two of our case managers" (I envisioned a sign by the door saying "Case Managers thrive in captivity"). She wanted us to tell him what we do. I said "We put out fires" and was gratified to see the young man got it. I spent most of the morning putting out those fires and helping people find funds to move into apartments, helping people get authorizati…
It’s been almost a month and while it has zoomed by, it’s been full. A week ago, I had the cataract removed from my left eye. I get to tape the lovely plastic device to my face at night so I don’t inadvertently rub my eye as it continues to heal. I have 20/20 vision in that eye now! As a person who has worn glasses since I was 7, it’s remarkable. I have a small cataract in my right eye but that one will wait. The vision in that eye is 20/50 and is correctable to 20/20. In about 2 weeks, after my eye has had more time to heal, I will get new glasses and be able to see clearly for the first time in months. Look at that grey hair! It was sorely in need of a good cutting so the day after the surgery, I got it done. It felt so much better. And there’s almost no color left in it. This is right after we left the hairdressers. She always dries it with bangs but I mostly push them back. I love my hair color. I like it short. It makes me feel a bit more modern and less old-lady-like. …
This was a winter with little or no snow here in the wilds of Southern New Jersey. I have listened to the people around me rejoice about this but I am not a happy camper. In my head, I know less snow is safer (unless it means ice storms) but if it doesn't get cold and freeze over, how are we going to survive the hot summer months? I need the contrast to help me get through. Spring has officially come but the poor bulbs didn't know they still had time to wait and we had many daffodils all blooming the day before we were due for a major winter storm. I asked Elanor to go out and cut all of the blooming daffs so we wouldn't lose them all to the ice we were anticipating. The storm was a bust but we had vases and jars of springtime sunshine all through the house. We made it through St Patrick's Day with only 2 loaves of soda bread. It was yummy (and there's still a loaf in the freezer). In a "swap", I traded these purple hand knit socks for a set of b…
