CHANTELLE’S RED SHOES

Yesterday is history.  Tomorrow is a mystery.  And today?  Today is a gift.  That’s why we call it the present.  Babatunde Olatunji

I’m going to the Post Office.” So said my Facebook status update.

Mundane? Perhaps, but it was a covert message from me to a dear friend; she had sent me something via the Post Office and we were both excited that I should receive it.

A comment came in from an observer:

Gosh you lead a full life, what’s next………”

Funny? Perhaps, but – mundane as trips to the Post Office to retrieve gifts may be – I do lead a full life.  I am blessed.  What’s next? Oh, just another little slip from the Post Office, another parcel to collect, a trip to a new coffee shop to do a review, a trip to a lifestyle centre to do a product sampling and then the tedious business of an outing to a wine exhibition with another friend.

Go ahead, call me boring; I love my life.

Thank you, Chantelle, you made my week…

    How novel! they are lovely.

    1. theonlycin says:

      They don’t fit me, else I’d be tripping the light fantastic 😀

      1. Chantelle says:

        Taylor wanted to try them on too (note wanted – there was no way I was going to search for another pair!) … was a mission to get her to put it in the box LOL

      2. theonlycin says:

        First thing Chelsea did when she saw them was test if they fit … bwahaha!

  11. Count Czardas says:

    she wore red shoes by the post office
    as the rain splashed the nickle
    spilled like chablis along the midway
    theres a little bluejay
    in a red dress, on a sad night

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’d be dreadfully sad if I spilled chablis …

  12. napier says:

    You have made my day, I love the shoes!
    Have a good one C

    1. theonlycin says:

      Lots of love Napes 🙂

  13. You’re right Cindy, the everyday is the stuff of happiness. I think perhaps the secret of happiness is recognising when we are happy. If so, those shoes are just the ticket.

    1. theonlycin says:

      J’ai la gratitude 😀

  14. Greg says:

    Your observers’ comment is clearly an expression of deep jealously – we’d all love to lead such “mundane” lives as yours.

    Mailed you another tedious option to add to your boring life a little while ago…

    I wonder where Dorothy would have landed up if she’d been wearing those shoes in Oz? Definitely not Kansas I’m sure.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I think it was meant to be humorous.

      I received your invitation, thank you – just my kind of tedium – see you there.

      Dorothy may have found herself in A Taxi to Soweto 🙂

  15. brat.d.lux says:

    Oh how stunning…..!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Thanks 🙂
      I wish I knew who you are.

  16. Liane says:

    How SWEET is that?!!

  17. aardvarkian says:

    Great shoes. I want a pair.

    Great life. You are indeed blessed.

    As am I with mine.

    1. theonlycin says:

      There we go then, two happy little rays of sunshine 😀

  18. suzicate says:

    Fabulous! I envy your full lovely life…I wish my trips to the post office were as thrilling and rewarding! Now, let’s see a pic of them on you!

    1. theonlycin says:

      If only they fitted my feet 🙂

  19. gospelwriter says:

    I avoid post offices whenever I can – but then, no one sends me gifts like that either. Would be worth the long waits. Have always loved that quote. There are people who think my life must be incredibly boring… if only they knew!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Far, far from boring 😀

  20. halfp1nt says:

    It’s a wonderfully blessed life you have 🙂
    Le Shoes, tres chic!

  21. thysleroux says:

    Dorothy would still approve. Onward to Oz!

  22. slpmartin says:

    My first impression of the person’s comment on what you were going to do….was “and you’re hanging out on line commenting on other people’s lives…and you think they’re boring”…but that’s just me. 🙂

    1. theonlycin says:

      🙂 Who will ever know?
      Good morning 🙂

  23. nrhatch says:

    Vive la mundane! Et les chausseurs rouge!

  24. buttercup600 says:

    To die for….oh my…where can I get them? Awesome girlfriend!!!

  25. Jamie Dedes says:

    Life is wonderful.
    The shoes are fabulous. You have a good friend there! 🙂
