Dear Friends – I had an unexpected visit to the emergency room this week. The good news is the doc says I should be fine; the bad news is the scare shook any creative thoughts right out of my head and I have nothing new to offer you. I do, however, have a little something from last Spring that seems fitting. Wishing you all a blessed weekend filled with sunshine and flip-flops. I hope to be back fresh next week. ~Diane~
Oh, happy day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and a few eager daffodils have awakened from their winter’s nap. Woo hoo!
You know what all this means, don’t you? It means, dear friends, it is almost time to pack up the winter clothing and bring out the summer wear. The first thing I’m unpacking are my flip-flops.
I love flip-flops. As far as I’m concerned, they are the only footwear one needs during warm weather.
Think about it. Flip-flops are so versatile you can wear them with anything; shorts, swimsuits, jeans, skirts, wedding dresses, even pajamas. And let’s not forget, flip-flops are the perfect companion to the perfect pedicure. I say if you’re going to spend your hard-earned cash on a pedicure why cover it up? You don’t have to…flip-flops!
During the Spring and Summer, the only footwear decision I have to make is which pair of flip-flops to choose from my vast array of colors and styles. Yes, they come in styles. I have them in metallic (blue, gold, green and silver), non-metallic (brown, yellow and black), a pair with gold flowers, a pair made with ribbon, macramé with beads and a really fancy pair with rhinestones. What about platform flip-flops, you say? Don’t be silly, a uncoordiated girl has to draw the fashion line somewhere.
Yes, I love flip-flops and while perfect in almost every way they do have a downside in certain situations. For example, flip-flops can be dangerous when walking on pine straw or wet leaves; a lesson I learned the hard way.
While wearing flip-flops and walking my dog, I stepped on wet leaves, fell, busted my butt and slid about 50 yards through my front yard. It was a lot like a Slip-and-Slide, only a lot less fun and a lot more painful. My husband got a good laugh out of my mishap so on second thought, I take it back, flip-flops have no downside because they make people laugh. What more could you ask for?
