You're making progress in the yard, Susan! I like the cleared spots on either side of the front path for the garden chairs. Very inviting.

My elderly Nike "yard shoes" are about to fall apart on my feet, having worn through most of both soles. The typical shoe-route to the garden is by virtue of being an older pair that I've forgotten I was wearing when I went out into the yard enough times that they finally take on that scruffy look and should no longer be worn to work. With the declutter work I've been good about getting rid of shoes that I no longer wear so all of my current sneakers are in good shape and not ready for that end stage.

DSW has the clearance section and I aim at shoes at least 40% off (rarely do you find anything 60% off that is wearable, but it has happened). I came home with a brand unknown to me but that has the qualities of the old pair—it's a mesh fabric so it breathes well, it has good support, and can be worn with socks.

I stopped by a neighbor's garage sale this morning and saw nothing that appealed. She collects vintage and antique stuff and puts that out on her garage sales. I have more than enough of that stuff here already!
