BBBC #9 – Shoes

Shoeless T-Mama

Shoeless T-Mama

Yes, I am posting a day late. Work has been extra busy this week. My boss is on vacation and all kinds of unique and unexpected stuff came in that requires my attention. It’s been a hectic few days.

I did think about this post yesterday. I even took the “Shoeless T-Mama” photo yesterday. I was hoping that moniker would have the same ring to it as Shoeless Joe Jackson.

It doesn’t.

I don’t wear shoes as much as most people, because I don’t leave the house often. LOL. Working from home means I don’t need shoes. Except for once a day when I walk the dogs. And that only lasts 30-60 minutes or so.

Usually, I just wear socks. Those pictured are my favorites, for what it’s worth.

I do have a few pairs of favorite shoes, but they’re sandals, and are all packed away for the winter. Not pretty, dainty, girlie things, Keen sandals. Like these…

Not actually my shoes.

Not actually my shoes.

I didn’t know they came in purple!

I’m behind on my blog reading, too. Sorry folks. I’ll catch up, I promise.

    A post a day is a tough assignment Kathy, even if you don’t normally wear shoes 🙂

    Be sure to add Dar to the list of participating bloggers:

      David, thenks for that heads-up. I was so ashamed to have missed her joining. I’ve been enjoying the daily prompts, and would have had the material to post, I just didn’t have the time. By the end of each work day last week, I HAD to get away from the computer.

    Kathy – maybe we should call you “Sock-Mama” I think I need to hunt for some funky socks for you! I love the look of Keen sandals, but couldn’t find a pair that did it for me, in the end I chose Taos sandals, they had a non rubber foot bed and are fairly comfy.

      Dar, on hot days the rubber soles do annoy me. I’ve had other people say they couldn’t find Keens to fit their feet. I guess the shape of my feet are just ideal for Keens because every pair I have had are comfy.

    Even when I worked from home, I almost always wore shoes. Hmm, I wonder why?

    And I love keens and have two pairs, one with a heel band, and one slip-on. 😉

      Lynne, that’s odd. The wearing shoes thing. It’s probably better for your feet. One thing for sure, I have to shop very carefully for shoes now. You know, for days that I have to actually go to my office or some other work function requiring proper footwear. They have to be super-comfortable, or else I’m not a happy girl after an hour or two.
