My front yard, in an impromptu photo shoot as I was backing out of the garage. Note the pretty red leaves which should have fallen BEFORE the snow fell. Someone, other than me, is going to have a shitty time dealing with them whenever they do get around to falling.
I wasn't really prepared for the snow to stick around today so I find my self improperly shod. I ended up holding hands with Office Manager as we walked to lunch since neither one of us had on decent shoes. We couldn't decide if the hand-holding was helpful and would prevent a fall, or dangerous as it would mean we'd both go down. In the end we managed to get there and back unscathed, so I am going with helpful.
And, speaking of shoes, another pair of hand-knit socks grace my feet today, only not in super cheap shoes. The shoes, though not great for snow, were bought in a real store! I got these shoes a couple of years ago because, ironically, I thought they would be good in the snow. The foot sole has tread, but the heel, no tread. Kinda sucks when you walk like, you know, a human, and put your heel down first. Well I assume that is how all us humans walk. Maybe I am a freak. I know I have to walk funny in high heels because of the heel first thing. Shit, now I am going to have to research this. Maybe I walk like a duck. Crap. Okay, let's talk about the socks. These puppies tested my knitting mettle. They seemed to have loosened up - good. But they have also faded - bad. Nonetheless, I like them and wear them.
