We are soon to be country folk. We’ll retain our city-slicker-ness during the week as we both work in the city. But come the weekend, we are putting on our boots and headed to the woods! Being city-slickers, we didn’t have proper boots. How can we be country folk without boots?
Oh no, that cannot abide! I got new boots last week so we would not be wet-footed-greenhorns! I was a bit torn about what style of boot I needed. I have steel-toed rubber boots and I have cowboy-esqe boots. I have boots with fluffy insides and I have boots with sparkles. Well, no I don’t. Anyhow, I figure that running shoes would not work in the woods and I plan to be in the woods and in the fields and generally outside on this property!
Emily actually got her boots at the beginning of winter. I think she looks hot in her boots. They are water-proof and snake-proof and termite-proof. The are so-many-things-proof that I decided to get an identical pair…only mine were half off! Anyhow, our boots are identical…even in size!
We are ready now. I got my boots and I got my canvas coat and I got an itchin’ to get outside and enjoy…being outside! My boots have much work to do in the coming few months! I have high hopes for these boots. I am offering up a challenge to my boots. They gotta be tough. They gotta be rough. They gotta be awesome! Don’t make me break out my sparkley boots!
