A bit of this, a bit of that

This walking thing is getting easier. I was out for an hour and a half today, walking through the neighbourhood next to ours. There are some houses for sale there and I've been trying to get a feel for the neighbourhood. One house actually went up for sale there last night; it's a little bit over our price range but not so far out that we couldn't bring it into what we're prepared to spend. I walked by the house today and decided that I didn't love it.

At least there are still houses going up for sale. There was another bungalow that we had planned to look at but when Ian reviewed the listing he discovered that it had electric baseboard heating. We want forced air heating, please, and we don't want to pay to convert from one to the other.

I checked out, a link that my sister sent me, and discovered this amazing pair of shoes:
$155 000 Eternal Borgezie Diamond Stiletto
They're made almost entirely out of gold and diamonds. Seriously. How decadent is that? I like them but I'd prefer something with a heel strap. Also, I'd be concerned about the strength of the stiletto heel, if they're using gold there. Gold is a very soft metal and I don't know if it would be strong enough to take the force of the heel striking the ground. Still, these are a gorgeous pair of shoes and would be beautiful when worn out dancing what with the diamonds around the footbed.

Maybe it is my computer but the shoe pic isn't showing for me. I am wanting to take up walking together with my husband when he gets back.
