Shoe Lust

I had my hair trimmed today. On the way to and from, I pass a shoe store. I saw a shoe in the window that made me stop, turn around, and head inside.

Shoe lust 3

Oh, I love these shoes! I can't think what I might wear them with, but I *want* them!

And then I browsed a little more. )

ETA: These are Pikolinos. I like what I'm reading on their website. :-)

It's a good tired, though. Today we took the kayaks out on the lake for the first time this year. We were out on the water for about 3 hours, so I'm a little pink (without the sunblock, I'd be burned to a crisp, so a little pink is tolerable). It was a gorgeous, warm, breezy day. The water was pretty high, and the current (it's a lake behind a dam, so the water flows through) was very strong through the canyon area, enough so that I wasn't able to paddle beyond it. That was far enough up that we were able to relax and paddle slowly back to our starting point. After that, we explored in the other direction for about an hour before heading back. There were lots of ducks and geese everywhere, even swimming up to our kayaks and checking us out. We even saw a couple of nests with hens brooding on them on a little island in the middle of the lake.

After we got back and cleaned up, we took the boys out to dinner. [We stopped on the way at Tower Records (right next to Tower Books! ;-) so our older son, J could look for an anime video he's been wanting to buy. I took the opportunity to browse the bookstore, but I only gave myself 10 minutes, so I didn't get to look at everything I would usually check out. I was able to find 3 very interesting-looking books, though. Oh, and I ran into one of my college professors, which was really nice since I hadn't seen him in several years, only spoken on the phone with him about student intern assignments occasionally.] It was really nice to have the boys captive at the table, with no bedrooms to rush back to. This usually guarantees that actual conversation will take place, and tonight was no exception. Sometimes it's hard to get them started talking, but it's so fun once they get going.

Ahh, this was a good day. :-)

Speaks the Nightbird by Robert McCammon. I really enjoyed this book - as far as it went. This is actually the first half of a very long novel, so this volume ended in a cliffhanger (which bothers me because now I need to track down the second half before I can find out what happens).

Wait. What am I saying? Why am I complaining?!? This means that I get to make a trip to the (cue celestial-sounding trumpets) BOOKSTORE. Gasp! Okay. I feel great now. I refuse to consider the possibility that they won't have a copy.

/plugging ears and humming... la la la

I'm sure they'll have it.

Ummm. Well, at least they are sure to have something I like for my "trouble" in going there.

Now I just have to wait for the guy installing my shiny new range hood to finish so I can run off and look for it. Ooh, shiny.
