(The weird white thing in the bottom left isn't a giant top hat. It's a cake carrier. We took a delicious plum cake to the brunch. There were no leftovers.) We went for a bike ride in the afternoon, and I changed into non-self-made shorts and a tee for that. You might notice that I'm not wearing Birkenstocks. I finally took the plunge and bought some Chaco's. The Birkenstocks worked well for me for a while, but the soles were starting to wear out, and I was starting to have some trouble keeping them on my feet without getting toe cramps. So far, the Chaco's are pretty good. I'm getting used to having something around my ankle, but I think that helps me keep them on without toe injury. I expect that at this time next year, I'll have a new sandal tan.
