Because they're always dropping their needles!!!
How could I resist sharing that little gem?
Do you know that this is my nine hundred seventy-second post? That means only twenty-eight more until one THOUSAND posts. I'd love for that to coincide with January 1, 2013 ... wouldn't that be cool? It means I'll have to be a little more . . . prolific . . . than usual. Hmmmm.
Speaking of not resisting, Todd and I took what I thought was going to be an innocuous little trip into Fayetteville and Tractor Supply this morning. We needed a heater for the bird pond/bath. The robins flew in this morning to take baths and found a block of ice ... oops! Anyway, while we were in there, look what I found:
Aren't they CUTE?!! And when I found I could not only put my foot down into them but walk around in them without pain, I nearly cried! (For those who don't know, I was in a bad accident several years ago that broke my foot/ankle quite thoroughly. I'm still in recovery.) They look so cute with my jean skirts ... fun for playing around in (not work boots) ... and WARM!
But wait, there's more. I walked around the corner and saw this darling pair . . .
Aaaaaaagh!!!!! I've missed *so* much having a pair of sturdy, rubber utility boots for around the camp. These are perfect and cute and they fit!! Polka dots!!!!
And they were BOTH on sale ... and rang up even lower than their sale prices. To me? That's a *sign*!
It's a sign they're in my closet now. Well ... except for the pair that I'm wearing.
