I need to explain something about the blister I got last Saturday. Some of you said I should return the shoes. But you know what? Getting a blister with new shoes is more common than an exception.
When I was 10 we were on vacation at the beach. I stepped in a dead fish on the beach and got a serious infection at my right foot. We had 2 days left of the vacation and I got very sick. When we got home my Mom and Dad didn’t trust it and took me to the doctor who sent me straight to the hospital. I needed surgery immediately and stayed in isolation for 3 weeks after that. At the operation they placed a tube in my heel to keep it open so the dirt could get out. When I finally could go home my right leg was in plaster for more than 6 weeks. My heel never completely healed and since then I have a hump on m right heel. Everytime I buy new shoes I always have a blister on it the first couple of times I wear the shoes (except for running shoes that never give me blisters). When I walk in the shoes a couple of times, I’ll be fine. So I’m not returning the shoes because I know I will be fine, I walked in them on Monday and it was already better.
Lori wanted to know what a freezer in Holland looks like, well like this:
We have a small one because it’s just the 2 of us but of course you can buy bigger freezers.
I decided to start the photo a day challenge again. I quitted last time because I didn’t have inspiration for every photo. This time I will just skip that day if I can’t come up with something. I also joined a closed FB group called “365 days of nature” where you post a nature photo everyday. Since I’m almost every day outside, I think it won’t be to hard to come up with a photo for that every day. I will post photos for both challenges on my blog too. I’m starting both challenges on December 1.
