Hello Robin

Today I saw several red-breasted robins looking for worms on my back lawn! What a welcome sight – the true harbingers of spring! I had heard that Mr Groundhog had predicted an early spring this year, and maybe, just maybe he is right this year! I had read an article that indicated that Mr Groundhog is wrong 61% of the time! I really found that hard to believe! If that’s the case, maybe we should start asking Mr. Skunk what he thinks! I saw Mr Skunk. on the road a couple of weeks ago, isn’t that a sign of spring too?

Say what?

When Josh told me that he was thinking about buying a compressor, I thought he was talking about an air compressor, to inflate car tires. I was really surprised when he explained that he was talking about a piece of musical equipment that would do vocal compression! I told him that he was now officially talking about something I had no idea about what he was saying, and that I hoped that when he got one, he would demonstrate how it works to me. Sometimes I feel really stupid, and I don’t like that at all!

Merry Christmas!

I’m expecting fourteen family members for Christmas Dinner later today! I did almost all of the cooking yesterday, but there are a few last minute things that I want to fix – we got three different flavors of stuffing. Turkey, apple, and cranberry. I’m curious to see which one I like better. I’m almost tempted to mix all three together! I hope everyone has a great day, full of love and good food!

Flat Shoes are the Latest Fad

The good thing about flat shoes is that they don’t often give you back pain or shorten the area between the waist and the hips as heels do. They are so popular that every second woman is wearing them. Lord and Taylor has lots on offer, ranging from simple slip-ons to ballet-type lace-ups, and from the rounded to the pointy. So long as you have your Groupon Coupons ready, you can have several different types in your closet and still make some savings. You don’t have to spend money beforehand to get the coupons.

Flat shoes are comfortable and dainty and so long as they fit right, they can make your feet look elegant. They can be worn with any clothing item – jeans, skirts, dresses, and even wedding dresses because they range from the casual to the formal.

Flat shoes are also being associated with women and girl power because they involve a conscious choice. Women can wear flats and still feel feminine. The problem is that femininity is often associated only with heels.

Whatever you wear, however, make sure it fits the occasion. The flat shoes you wear to a wedding are not the same ones you would wear to the mall or market, or even to work. Flats also come in different colors but be careful when you choose to wear the brightly-colored ones. If you work in a high powered environment where formal suits are the order of the day, be sure to wear elegant brown or black shoes. You don’t want to wear orange shoes that get you noticed for their color rather than your output.

Another good thing is that you can pass your flats around the family. You can share shoes with your girl children, something that is difficult to do if you are confining yourself to heels. But for optimal comfort, choose flats that are a comfortable fit, and made with soft leather or other durable and fine material. Head on to Lord and Taylor and have fun choosing from their variety of styles.
