Yes, it's true - I've taken a lover!
And it's a "she"! How scandalous!
Wow, the rumor mill flies thanks to Facebook! One of my dearest followers demanded to see the illicit photo of my new boots she "heard" was circulating on my facebook page. Here they are!
If you are really quiet, you can hear them.... "don't hate us because we are beautiful"...
Yes, you might be from Minnesota IF: you think Sorels are sexy! I have been coveting these boots for close to 3 years now but haven't really had the excuse to buy them. Last year we went home for Thanksgiving and these would have been overkill that early in the year. (Although I have seen teenagers wearing winter boots in September with minis here - yeah, I'm a bit old to pull that one off, and not quite that stoopid!) LOL. This year, not only are we going home for Christmas, but we are going to spend the week after Christmas as far north in Minnesota as the beautiful scenic 61 will take us! While most dream of flying south with the birds, I cannot wait to get up there and have some much needed down time - hiking/snowshoeing, sledding, reading, knitting, socializing and just plain enjoying the holiday & winter season!
To be fair, I bought hubby his first pair of "real" boots as well, and I can't wait to see him in them, I think they will suit his inner "skater boy" as well as keep his tootsies warm. I am definitely not breaking him in to MN winter gradually, so the least I can do is make sure he's comfortable!
So those are our Christmas presents this year, and I don't feel too badly about the purchase since WE don't outgrow our boots every 3 months, like some little people I know! And some new socks if I can figure out how to knit them!
Other news: today's harvest - yay for more greens! The last few green tomatoes I brought in are ripening nicely on the counter, so I am ecstatic about the thought of salad. Haven't had real salad since May, it was too hot for lettuce this year. The garden is making up for that now.
Tonight's dinner for me! Poor Charlie, this is one of his favorites... the only thing that would make it better would be to replace the chicken with grilled steak strips, or better yet, our OWN chicken!
Sewing project is on hold for now because of the below "big event"... I have finally gotten over my fear of DP needles enough to attempt my first sock. I had another bottle of "Mad Housewife" merlot in my stash to give me the courage last night!
Agenda for tonight - kids are off to bed, sit down and eat that salad I just made in peace and quiet, and knit my sock while wearing my new Sexy Mama Clompers with shorts on! I'm trying to break them in so I will be a sight to see tonight, LOL! (For you other knitters out there, I now totally get the "second sock syndrome" - I can't imagine having to start a mate to this once I finish this sock LOL!) Maybe I will be giving out mismatched socks for Christmas - there's something to be said for variety, right? There will be one of everything, LOL!
