Clump #48: Rake through three bags of paper and recycle sandals.
It’s official. Summer is really over. My trusty sandals finally gave way. I have a problem with shoes: just when they start to look bad, they start to feel good. A friend, who once staged a shoe intervention for me, recently pointed out that one of these sandals was starting to split. I was unconcerned. Not even considering duct tape. But today the split was complete. The great thing is, they are completely recyclable, and tonight is trash night.
I had purchased them in a grocery store, but I just ordered a new pair online with free shipping (coupon code 2KUV95BA). The company’s name is OKABASHI; they’re made in the USA. These look a little worse for the wear, but I highly recommend them.
Also going out to the curb: the paper contents of the last three (now) benign-looking reusable shopping bags from the room of gloom.
So many credit card offers to dismantle! My pet peeve: the plastic that comes with them, and the goopy stuff used to glue them together.
I’m finally feeling a lifting of the shadows in the room formerly filled with sad memories and neglected clumps. My husband and I went out for a walk this evening and the idea of shadows was on my mind.
Shadows can be lovely.
We stopped on a bridge to look for fish in the stream, and I realized our shadows were in the spotlight.
