The Joy Of Wearing Shoes ! Actual Shoes!

I know, who knew wearing shoes could bring such pleasure.

Today is the first day since probably November we can venture outside and safely wear shoes. We still have snow on the ground, but the walkways have melted and all the little patches of ice and black ice have melted for now.

Boy I've missed wearing shoes outside and now quickly recall how heavy boots are to be dragging around. Just walking the dog is a chore in boots.

So bring on spring! Bring on shoes!

Not saying we are out of the woods quite yet, April 15 is tax day but is also usually the day I consider safe from a major snowfall. So that is the silver lining of tax day for us. Fingers crossed.

Now I am glad for our hot and humid weather all year round. We can go out in shoes, slippers, and sandals anytime we want.

Sandals ? What are they, it has been a long time since I've seen a sandal! :)

Here is hoping ! Never fun when tax day collides with a spring snowstorm !

We have had an unseasonably warm/nice winter. Unfortunately, we have no snow accumulation in the mountains, which is going to affect our water supply. I hope our summer is not messed up because of it.

Right, unless you have file for an extension already emoticon :winking:

j2jworkz wrote on March 14, 2015, 12:08 PM

You are exactly right, bring on the ice cream too!

j2jworkz wrote on March 14, 2015, 12:10 PM

That is a definite concern in your area I have read, always something w the weather lately.

been a long time since you wear shoes? I had been wearing slippers

That is an exciting thing, I am back in boots due to standing water, but at least it is warm out

crowntower wrote on March 14, 2015, 12:28 PM

Hahahahahah! I wish I can but I am sure we are continents apart. Hahaha by the time the ice cream gets there, there is no flavor in it, probably melts down because of the heat. God bless. Thank you for sharing this fun post, I really like it. I love shoes.

I hear ya, wearing shoes does require the willingness to puddle jump or it does get a little ugly.

j2jworkz wrote on March 14, 2015, 12:31 PM

It really has been months since we could wear shoes outside or one goes ice skating w shoes on.

wolfgirl569 wrote on March 14, 2015, 2:54 PM

Puddles are too big here lol. Maybe by Monday I will be back in shoes again

I was imagining you having bare feet in the snow

j2jworkz wrote on March 14, 2015, 5:30 PM

Now that would indeed be a bold move :)

Funny. I was just looking forward to spring as a way of getting OUT of shoes, actual shoes. Can't wait to bring out the flip-flops.

OldRoadsOnceTraveled wrote on March 14, 2015, 5:48 PM

Oh, I forgot. And pack away the socks, too! Looking forward to that.

j2jworkz wrote on March 14, 2015, 7:35 PM

Socks is a July event - woo hoo!

Funny how we take such small things for granted and then it hits us... they aren't so small after all!

j2jworkz wrote on March 15, 2015, 12:06 AM

I had forgotten what a joy it was to shelve the boots - cheap entertainment too!

allen0187 wrote on March 15, 2015, 12:31 AM

Very cheap entertainment!!!

I wonder if jogging in boots can help one burn more calories. Fluff wears shoes too? :)

trufflehunter wrote on March 16, 2015, 6:16 AM

Oh yes flip flops for me! No better alternative for the weather here.

j2jworkz wrote on March 16, 2015, 7:48 AM

Lol, the Fluff walks like a racehorse, so snow boot walking is quite a calorie burning adventure...

LindaCPearson wrote on March 17, 2015, 7:14 PM

I know exactly what you mean! I haven't worn shoes since January. I can't even remember where they are! The snow is finally melting around here and I'll need them pretty soon. I'm sick of wearing boots and I'm very sick of snow!

j2jworkz wrote on March 17, 2015, 10:30 PM

Snow snow go away!🏄
