New shoes and random photos

I got asked a couple of posts ago about the Spanish hours. Not only did I consider letting youngest, who is in grade school, go out to a party tonight that would get her home around 2am, but I let her go! Now I am waiting up for her....the horror. I will grant that this is not normal but I am also not really all that surprised either. I would never have even considered the idea before we came here.

Now onto other random things.....

See these?



These are new shoes I bought today. They are so very achingly typically Catalan. I view them as camoflauge...makes me look more like I am part of the crowd.....



Also, you see, Nomad is a Very Bad Influence. With her I bought a bunch of clothes and have ignited a desire to wear skirts and dresses. I even bought a dress that I TOTALLY love. Nothing girly about it at all. LOVE IT. The black birkenstocks however, were not working with it at all. Not at all. New shoes in order. I used to have tons and tons of shoes...then I had to babies and my feet grew. Then I went barefoot for three years in the Bahamas, and now I am getting some footwear back. jejejejejejejeje

So, what else have we here....yes. I think the neighbours are going to need to mow the house, no?


Another question, why do the glass collection guys have to come at 8am?


This is another one of those doors in the hill. They usually hold tools and such....


I don't know how you would get your tools back from here:

I presume it used to be a water source, a spring in fact. There may even be water down there still. I would so love to go down that some day and see what is at the bottom. Wonder how I could do that.

I loved all the plants growing out of walls, houses, roofs, etc. in Spain. Thanks for the wee reminder.

The deep dark hole is a little bit scary for me, I think...

I really LIKE those shoes! They look comfortable and cool. (Cool as in fresh air but the other kind, too…)
I see rusty rungs going down that hole you want to go into – do not use them!

If you try to see what's at the bottom of that mysterious hole, you will definitely need (more) new shoes first! Just saying.

Why don't you (and your neighbours?) get up a petition to move the noisy glass container?
In Hamburg citizens got city bylaws passed defining where those things could be put AND when emptied.
Sandals look comfy.GM

Mmichele, how is it to be home again, strange and disjointed I imagine.

Beth, do you know what size you are???? They are surprisingly comfy.

JG, more like I'd need some really old shoes and a good headlamp. Got both.

GM, Sandals are comfy....and there really is no where else to put the container.....

Me likes the shoes! I love the color too! SWEET!

My shoe size seems to vary according to store and shoe style. I have the worst luck buying shoes - except for flip-flops!

Beth said...

I adore the shoes. You NEVER see any like that here in France...
They tend towards uncomfortable, pointy-toed footwear. Ick.

Congrats on the clothes-shopping! Sounds like it was fun.
