In a house with five children, you would expect to have a few lonely socks that were needing a friend. I have a box on my washer that holds the single socks looking for a mate that I clean out every so often. Obviously it has been a while.
Look! Unbelievable!!! (I'm sure my mom would cringe about now).
What are the odds that we would have this many socks?????
And why do we own this many socks??? These are just the ones looking for a friend!?!
We have just recently stopped wearing many socks because warmer weather (finally) has meant warmer feet and less sock necessity. I guess I thought the matching sock would turn up in the next load. Crazy thinking.
I did end up doing some match making and some socks were reunited. Sadly, many were subjected to my tyranny and went into the trash bin.
To make myself feel better about throwing away all of those socks (because you KNOW I will find them someday behind a bed, in the toy box, in a bag, behind the dryer, in the LEG0S....)-
I bought these.
Peonies are one of my favorites. I remember my Mema having them in her garden. How can they not brighten your day?
