Shopping Excursion--I must be feeling better!

I am *finally* starting to feel like I've beaten the cold/flu illness I've had for the past 2 weeks or so. Between being home for the holiday, being sick and being snowed in for a day or so, I was starting to feel a bit shut in and in need of a good outing.

Today, we went to Garden City and enjoyed walking around outside in the sunshine and moderate temps. Thankfully, all the walkways were clear of ice and snow there so we could stride around normally and get a little exercise. We did some browsing in stores too. At the bookstore, I treated myself to Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution cookbook. I don't need any encouragement to learn to cook, but the recipes look quick and flavorful and I know I will especially enjoy the Indian inspired ones. Then, after a yummy lunch at Chipotle, we headed for home via DSW. I was on a mission to quickly find some new clogs like I wear almost all the time (and tend to wear out) and I found 3 pairs in just a few minutes. I walked in, 'scanned the horizon' in there (low shelving is great!) and made a beeline to some that looked promising. Luckily, the two on the left were 40% off!!

I like them all so much, it's hard to know which pair to wear! They may actually be my favorite clogs ever! It's kind of fun to be starting the New Year with some new shoes.

I am so glad you are feeling better and you are so funny, wanting to wear all your clogs at once!!!! Happy New Year and big pats to Saffy and Silas!!

I'm glad you're both better and had a good day of shopping. Whenever we go to the bookstore and I see the DSW storefront I think 'Department of Social Work'. Nice clogs!

I'm glad to hear that you and Jeff are feeling much better. You must have fun choosing which clogs to wear every day! Hopefully you and the dogs can get back to your walks soon.
