A This 'n That Update...

Remember the shoes I ordered from Teva? Did I ever tell you - after they finally arrived, I had a hard time getting them on my feet? Seems my high arch is a problem. Was able to force them on but it didn't seem worth it. They were too tight - right across the top! These ol' feet aren't just wide, they are high too!

Had a discussion last week wondering what ever happened to the old-fashioned shoe repair guy. We used to know a guy. He had his own little shop in the parking lot of a grocery store. The store is still there. The little shop isn't! Otto's hubby to the rescue! He knows a guy from their church. Morgan has a shop. He stretched my shoes. They are perfect! Thank you Emilio, for taking them to Morgan & bringing them back in perfect shape for me. I wore them for several hours today. Was like gloves for the feet! I took a picture but it's still in my camera.

I just put my 26 Things for November up. The easiest way was to make an album with Adobe PhotoShop Elements 2 so you will find it here: November 26 Things in January 2006. Now it will be easier to get my Favorite 5 Photos for January!

Finally - this week's Monday Madness
1. Name 1 type of supplement that you take. Calcium 600+D - twice a day

2. List 2 books that you would like to read in 2006. 'State of Fear' by Michael Crichton and any one of a pile of unread books currently on my shelf.

3. List 3 hobbies that you have. blogging, photography, scrapbooking (neglected lately)

4. List 4 gifts that you have received. custom made bracelet, gift certificate, coupon to have my truck detailed inside & out, carbon monoxide detector

5. Share 5 (instant & inexpensive) ways to spruce up a room. add a couple of fresh new throw pillows, rearrange the furniture, pick or buy a bouquet of flowers, add a splash of color with a new furniture throw, wash the windows!

It's amazing what a difference washing the windows makes! =)

Glad those shoes fit like gloves now. If your feet aren't comfortable, your whole body knows it!

I'm going to check out your photos now and hopefully I'll have mine up within a couple of days; ok, by the end of this weekend. AND I will definitely have my fave five up too! =)

Love you, Mom!

Get a pretty throw rug.
Put out a bowl of fresh lemons.
