I heart my........

Sparkly pink flip flops....so much so that I have literally worn the metallic like material off of them. They bow a little bit and a few of the sequins have fallen off. They have been good to me. I have worn them for almost a year. I know that everytime I put them on it could be the last time that I wear them, it makes me sad. Knowing that they could break at any moment I keep a back up pair of sandals in my car, just in case. However these have a life I have never seen in $3.00 flip flops. They are sturdy, they are comfortable, and I think they make my somewhat 'funny' looking feet look more narrow, at least when I look down on them they do. I've received many compliments on my flip-flops. I love them. I bought them at a drug store last fall before I went to Minneapolis for a visit and I have worn them ever since...........but like I said, I know the day is coming when they will no longer be able to take one more step with me, turn one more corner, travel to one more exotic place. I know this, thus the search began early this summer for a replacement pair. I have bought a few pairs that I thought could replace them but I don't like them, they don't feel right. So, I keep on my path with my sparkly pink flip-flops sending out good thoughts that they'll make it through another day of demands, another day of puddles, another day of Quintus running off with one of them. Until......


YESTERDAY! While shopping at the drugstore where I found the pink ones a year ago I found them again!!! Of course I did what any sensible girl would do who has an inability to find shoes that make her feet look good.......I bought 3 more pair. One in Green, one in Blue, and of course the requisite Pink. They need to be broken in but that's pretty much true with anything.

So now my sparkly pink flip-flops will be relagated to home and garden.

Speaking of garden...I thought I'd share some pictures I took yesterday in it.......

a bumble bee looking for some pollen....

a water droplet left from my watering on the leaves of my Bleeding Heart....

The Hydrangea my mother gave to me shortly after I moved in to this house. It's simply the most breathtaking plant and watching it go through it's phases of color just makes your heart bloom with it.

My miracle grow pansie.......

and my Gerbera Daisy which will be planted today with my orange Gerbera Daisy......

p.s.

I need to thank my mom for giving me the love of flowers....even if I came late to the party :)
