The Christmas Spirit did make a short appearance yesterday. Bill and I attacked the ELEVEN tubs/bins/crates of Christmas decorations in the basement and attic and came up with one silver tree. The rest will hibernate another year. This is my icicle tree. It's fitting as it is cold here. So cold, I kept the hockey game up behind it. Frigid. We were spoiled by a sunny and bright and beautiful fall and the sudden arrival of winter has been sort of rude. It's twenty degrees today. Not particularly startling for Michigan in winter, but it was practically balmy up until Thanksgiving. Anyway......
Did you "cyber shop" last Monday? I did. One of my purchases was for myself. I wanted an old fashioned pair of toasty warm slipper socks. I have been checking the porch everyday since for their arrival. Here they are.
And they're RED. What's not to love? Well, for one thing, they are the wrong size. Really wrong. These are a men's size 12. Sigh. And hey, Shoes.com...... what is up with the box you sent them in??
Yep, one pair of admittedly large slipper socks in a box big enough for several dozen pairs. Sigh.
Oh, and the return page on shoes.com is not working and neither is their phone number. Double sigh.
One bit of good news on this cold Monday - we have La Playa kits back in stock. Order today and I guarantee it will be the right size and shipped in an appropriate box. Happy Monday.
