Shoe Shopping Online

November 1, 2012 // Posted in Hobbies, Shopping, Web (Tags: , , ) |  No Comments

Some people collect stamps, some collect baseball cards, some collect CDs or DVDs. I guess I collect shoes and that’s because I love shoe shopping – both online and at the mall. But this time of year, going to mall is getting to be a problem with crowds. And after Thanksgiving, I can’t bear the thought of going to mall with all those Christmas shoppers clogging up the parking lot and the stores.

Tonight I will be surfing the internet for new shoes. I want to get a pretty pair of really dressy shoes to wear to my company’s annual holiday party in December. I have a dress in mind – now I want a pair of shoes and some accessories to make a totally knockout outfit.

Most of the time I like the really high heels and lots of straps. But last year at the Christmas party I was on my feet almost all night long and I could barely walk the next day with such sore arches and foot muscles. I think I will bring the heel down an inch and try to avoid that problem a second time. I need to be able to move around and talk to everyone at the party, and of course we will be dancing, too. So the new shoes have to be perfect – they have to look great and they have to not hurt!

Goldfish Tank

Went to the pet store with one of my guys and found some fun dog toys for his boxer. I love dogs but the big ones like boxers kinda scare me a little. I know they are stronger than me and that worries me when I’ve got a big dog on a leash and if he was to lunge at someone and try to break free I doubt that I could hold him back. That would be a hot mess.

So, I was looking at the fish and aquariums. It would be nice to have some fish in the condo. I like watching fish swim around and the sound of water trickling is always relaxing. I asked the guy in the fish section how much it would cost to get started with a couple of goldfish and everything they would need. With the sale price of the aquarium, it would only take about fifty bucks. So that’s what I’m thinking about buying.

D.C. Redskins versus Texas

September 19, 2010 // Posted in Fun, Hobbies, Life (Tags: , , , , ) |  No Comments

Well as it turns out, the Washington D.C. Redskins kicked some butt with the Dallas Cowboys. A great way to start the season! Too bad that the following game was once again a Texas team, this time we got our butt kicked in the last few minutes of the game. I knew that it was too good to be true for the Redskins to be starting out with such a bang. But we still have a full and busy season ahead of us and there is a possibility that we may actually have a decent team with a decent season this year. We will see.

Cowboys and Indians

September 2, 2010 // Posted in Fitness, Fun, Hobbies (Tags: , , , , ) |  1 Comment

I understand that next Sunday the Washington D.C. Redskins are going to play the Dallas Texas Cowboys in the Redskins home turf. I’m very anxious to see how that game plays out. They are old arch enemies that  always provide their fans with a great game when they play each other. Most of the times the Cowboys kick the Redskins asses, but once in a while they surprise us and when that happens it is party time in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

The Redskins haven’t done well in decades, it would be such a hoot to see them do something worth our while this year. Guess we will see when the time comes how it all will play out.

Getting a green thumb

May 10, 2008 // Posted in Hobbies, Life (Tags: , , , , ) |  1 Comment

With so much great weather out this year i have started a home garden to keep me entertained during the day time. I went to my local garden store and got some great tomato and cucumber seeds and some pots and soil to put them in and have a fun time taking care of them over the last couple of weeks.

With prices at the stores only going up for everything it only made sense to start growing my own vegetables. If I do good this year hopefully I will be able to grow a lot more different types of vegetables next year or maybe year around indoors but I want to make sure I have somewhat of a green thumb before I do anything BIG in the coming years.
