Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
Yesterday I wore another pair of Clark's clogs (rubber sole, leather upper) and thought they looked pretty good, considering that the other slip-on pair I wore on Friday fell apart as I wore them. So this morning I again slipped on the second pair and they felt so lopsided - I took them off and both of the soles were crumbling! Two pair, probably bought 3 or 4 pairs ago (I usually have between 15-20 pairs of shoes at a time, according to weather, occasion, season, etc. so they don't get worn that often) both self-destructed this winter. Really odd.
The dogs and I went for a truly superior walk tonight. I fitted the pit bull with the new Gentle Leader head collar (yes, she pried it off once before the walk and got one foot hung up in it - so I snugged it up more) but they were so much more responsive to my request that they not pull! My two still aren't completely reformed, but we're working on it.
Tornado warning around here this evening. I'd have known it even if I didn't see it on the weather channel - the warm muggy weather tells me so. We're settled in - I picked more broccoli from the garden and will do a beef and broccoli stir fry. I saw my first daffodil, almost open, this evening in the yard. Spring isn't far away. Amazing how the time flies!
