Today winter came to us boldly...
She brought the winds during the night, knocking out the power for a while.
It was a dark and stormy night indeed!
And although I would have rather stayed warm and cozy, needle felting by the fire,
I took my que from Griffin to get out for a few walks.
This afternoon, I bundled up and out we wandered in the thick, wet snow.
Quite a few years ago I happened upon a pair of boots in a British horticulture magazine
and it was love at first sight!
I adored them from afar, saving up my pennies for almost 3 years.
Then I finally found a shop in the area that has started carrying them.
I promised myself, I would just go have a look...
But as soon as they caressed my ankles and fondled my toes, they had me...
Or should I say, I had them!
Now when I go out, even in this weather, especially this weather, my feet and my legs are
warm and more importantly DRY!
You see not only are they gorgeous Irish Dubarry boots,
they are Goretex lined.
My feet and I are in love and happy as can be.
So today's song is a love song to the saviour of these wet, winter days...
