new

I have slacked off lately as far as my blog is concerned. For that matter, I have also been a slacker in checking others' blogs. I have been thinking about writing about Joseph. I thought I might have something to say. I have been listening to a lot of Christian talk radio while I am out there delivering flowers and it has been good to listen to. However, my thoughts have not come together on anything and so I am going to write to you today about something terribly insignificant.
I believe that most of you probably saw this picture on Facebook.  My dear friend Emily took this picture (and many more) when she came to stay with Judah and I in November.  I posted it on Facebook and I really like it.  Carsen mentioned that the Chucks with cuffed pants looked was somewhat stereotypical of me.  She was right.  For years I have loved wearing my Chucks.  I like the look, I like the feel.  
However, friends, I have to tell you that today, while seeking out a new pair of black Chucks, I opted for a pair of Pumas instead.  As I have already confessed to Elias and Carsen, it feels a bit like betrayal to my first love, however, I have not abandoned my Chucks altogether.  I still have a pair, slightly tattered, of black and also one pair of chocolate brown Converse All Stars.  I intend someday to purchase another pair.  Most likely this will occur sometime prior to Judah donning her black Chucks from Shannon.  For the moment, however, I am perfectly content with my new acquisition.  
With no further ado, I give you . . . my shoe(s).

Nice shoes! I know that I could have a deeper response than that but that's all that is coming out right now :o)

New shoes are so fun, but I'm surprised someone with an "intense dislike of cats" chose Pumas! :)

I like them! A girl is entitled to variety ;)

(Now that I think about that... that was such an American statement. But, I suppose I'm American after all. How blessed we are!)
