Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Shoesday two

These are the shoes I wear to work in the jails. They are flat, practical, staid, and oh so comfortable! They look rather like dress shoes for a nun, don't they? But don't let that sweet MaryJane strap fool you. These shoes have hard, heavy soles which makes them adequate tools of self-defense. DH feels more comfortable about me getting locked in with felons if I'm wearing a concealed weapon. I love my practical shoes!

How's this for a touch of sunrise? This is one of those sunrises that permeats the very air and tints the whole sky. It's like a teabag steeping color in swirls and drifts and currents of beauty. This shot is taken looking directly south. Looking east, the gold is so intense that it washes out the pictures. I stood outside, soaking it into my eyes till I was shivering in my slippers. I do love mornings!!

Tomorrow, knitting content. I am almost finished with the Hallucinogenic Torreador scarf, and the MIL sweater needs only buttons and a few ends tidied away.

    Love your sunrise photo and the the poetic description.

    Hallucinogenic Toreador? Do tell.

    The sunrise photo is great. I like how the pink moves diagonally across the picture.
    Great shoes! Secret weapon, indeed. Is there steel in the soles? The Professor has a pr of 'dress shoes' with steel plates in the bottom. He can't get through airport security with them on.

    I like those shoes! What are they?

    I have really wide, so I'm trying to hold out on buying shoes until pointy toes go out of fashion again :(

    It has probably been a year or so since I was awake to see a sunrise...they're pretty, though.

    That teabag image is going to sit with me for a while. I loves it.

    Wasn't it a glorious one? My view is directly east, so I was watching all that golden dazzle with the purple-blue clouds floating on top! Marvellous pic - nice to see the southern view too!

    And then I wound down enough a few hours later to go to bed. Night owls see things from the backside. ;)
