A dear friend brought me these ruby red slippers back from her trip to Tokyo. They are fuzzy, soft, warm, and wonderful! And isn’t the color great – Christmas slippers! They make me so happy, I had to share them with you! Thank you for admiring them.
My teen left last Friday for Merritt Island, Florida, to visit Cousin Carla and her family. From ziplining to Harry Potter World to Sunday dinner, the teen is having a marvelous vacation. It’s the world’s worst time for him to be gone, but the timing coincided with his college-age cousin’s holiday break. So I agreed to run camp and day camp while he was gone. In exchange, he agreed to be Santa for our campers.
This week, my day starts at 4:45 a.m. and ends when I fall into bed at around 9 p.m. I spend the early morning and late afternoon picking up and dropping off day campers, and sandwiched in between is playtime. It’s warm enough to play outside, and muddy enough to keep us inside. Fortunately, my campers are easily amused with deer antlers, games of fetch down the hall … and yes, the occasional Lassie movie. They try to play snatch the slippers. Ha. I am sleeping with my new Christmas slippers under my pillow.
Below are a few of our Santa Paws pictures. I’ll post the solstice pictures sometime between now and the spring. If you don’t see me for a couple of days, just assume I am standing out in the rain, jiggling a key at one of my day campers’ houses … and then after about the first 10 minutes of not being able to open the door, I begin to hope that a bus drives by that I can throw myself in front of. (I sent Cole a text to see if there was a secret to opening the door. His response? “Just keep trying.”) The owner’s suggestion is to gently maneuver the key slightly out of the lock and then jiggle it slowly to the right while pulling the doorknob enough so it engages the lock—and I do this all while holding onto the leash of a pup anxious for dinner.

Do you have a favorite pair of slippers?
