During our hot summers, I don’t wear shoes around the house. From morning, till evening, I run around with bare feet. If I go out in the public, it’s either sandals or tennis shoes, but still bare feet.
Come winter, though, that changes. I wear socks around the house and also when I go out, to keep my feet warm. I like soft, colorful socks because it seems that my winter wardrobe has a lot of black and the flash of color from my feet makes me happy. Some days I wear a pair of socks around the house and then change to a different pair when I go out. That adds up to a lot of socks. The last load of laundry had 11 pairs.
