Erev Shabbath Qodesh Parshath Ki Tissa 5768
Remember my "Macho Settler Sandal Shitah?" Last year I reported that I hadn't worn regular shoes for quite some time, only sandals with the exception of rain boots during last year's week of snow in Jerusalem.
Well, I caved.
A neighbor [felt sorry for me? and] gave me some shoes. He claims they were a gift from his credit card company, but they turned out to be too small for him.
Now, why would a credit card company send out a gift without checking the size? Maybe it did, but put the wrong pair in the box.
Maybe it's time for me to stop asking questions, and just say thank you.
Anyway, my feet were cold even with two pair of socks and sandals. So, I started wearing those shoes. There have been a few hints of spring this week, and temperatures have been around 17 C (62.5 F). Tonight it's expected to drop only down to 6 C (43 F). So I can handle the walk down from the hill in just Shabbath sandals.
