Vickey, thank you for that. I'm a visual learner and now understand and can proceed with the slipper. I've made the pattern before but just couldn't do a visual on it this time!

you slip one stitch,from the left needle onto the right needle, then you knit one stitch..... and then you take the slipped stitch and pass pass it to the left, OVER the knit stitch...(get hold of the slipped stitch with your fingers and move it, to the left, OVER the knit stitch and then off the tip of the needle, which leaves the knit stitch the only stitch of those 2, on the needle ....this is simply one way of doing a decrease stitch. it leans toward the left because of that sl stitch that you passed to the left, over that knit stitch.
