My Week in Shoes

My current Shoeper Woman shoe challenge started on September 1st and I have successfully worn shoes every single day!  Not really a big surprise that I wear shoes everyday, but the shoes that I wore, photographed, and saved this week are the ones that count!

I have worn quite a few different from my everyday pairs lately, and for a small moment, I thought I was going to have to reconsider my count and scratch off another one of my overly worn pairs after this last Sunday.  However, I discovered that a high powered hose works well for cleaning off mud and muck from a favorite pair of Doc Martens!  So, never mind, my count still stands at 37 total, and with these two, I have four pairs saved.

Ah, fall is finally getting close, and today was a nice taste of what is to come.  We awoke to 50 degrees this morning and the day didn’t get much higher than the lower 70’s.  Plus, there was a nice breeze and no humidity!  Wait, I am sure there was some humidity, but it is not as noticeable when the weather isn’t so hot.  It was a beautiful day and an evening walk at the lake was a nice way to end it.

After a good part of the day trampling through mud and surrounded by chickens, an early evening dinner with the family was a must.  Also on the afternoon agenda, a nice walk with the dog.  The great weather continued into today, only a little bit warmer than yesterday, but still feeling much more like fall.  I can’t wait until this heat is completely gone!

I am not in any hurry to get my shoes saved this time around, and starting in September ensures that the weather won’t hinder any of my attempts; they should all get worn with no problems at all.

Happy shoe saving!  (And if you want a shoe challenge, details at
